Immigration Enforcement Makes 27 Arrests On Eastern Shore

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A three day fugitive enforcement operation, lead to the arrest of 22 convicted criminal aliens on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says over the course of the operation, they made a total of 27 arrests, including seven immigration fugitives who reportedly ignored orders of removal, eight people who apparently illegally came back into the United States after being deported, and a dozen other reported immigration violators. Officials say of the 27 arrested 22 had criminal histories, including assault, battery, burglary, child endangerment, counterfeiting, DUI, resisting arrest, and theft.

The arrests happened all over the shore with one in Eden; 11 in Easton; one in Fruitland; two in Ocean City; two in Ocean Pines and 10 in Salisbury. The ages of the 24 men and three women arrested range from 20 to 57-years-old, and were reportedly from Brazil, Guatemala, Jamaica, Mexico and Nepal.

Dorothy Herrera-Niles, field office director for ERO Baltimore says "ICE will continue to arrest criminal aliens who have ignored an immigration judge's order to leave the country. Ultimately, these operations help improve public safety by removing criminals from our streets and from our country."

Officials say that it is a felony for someone to re-enter the U.S. After being deported, which if convicted, is punishable to up to 20 years behind bars.
