Illegal Migrant Murder Suspect Rearrested In Rhode Island

An illegal migrant wanted for murder in Honduras was rearrested on Friday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal (ERO) after having previously been released — despite a previous conviction of domestic violence and a felony attack.

The 23-year-old illegal migrant was rearrested by the Boston division on Feb. 7. He is slated to remain in ICE custody until a hearing in front of a federal immigration judge.

ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons announced, “This unlawfully present Honduran fugitive is wanted for homicide in his home country and has now been found guilty of violent criminal behavior here.”

Lyons called it “disturbing” that despite the presence of serious charges faced by the fugitive and an active immigration detainer, he was released. He stressed the obvious need for agencies to work together to avoid having violent criminals slip through the cracks.

He added, “this case only highlights the importance of why ERO Boston seeks to cooperate with local communities to protect public safety in our region.”

Interestingly, the suspect first entered the U.S. in Jan. 2021. However, he was quickly deported under former President Donald Trump’s Title 42 immigration policy.

It is not known when he came back to the U.S.

But the suspect has an established history of violence. According to ICE, he is sought by authorities in the Honduran city of El Progreso for suspicion of homicide.

He also faces charges in the U.S. of attacking another person with a weapon in June 2023. That case is pending, and he was released back out onto the streets.

Then came the domestic violence case in Providence, Rhode Island. The illegal migrant pleaded guilty to the charge on Feb. 4 and should have been held in the Correctional Institute due to ERO Boston filing an immigrant detainer.

But the revolving door of justice intervened, and just three days later he was released back into the public.

This is hardly the first case of an illegal migrant falling through holes in the system only to victimize another innocent. Last year a Guatemalan who was supposed to be detained in Rhode Island was released instead.

He then allegedly attacked a local child, and it took a year to recapture him.
