Derby Line, Vt. - Yesterday, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Rt 5 port of entry arrested a 41-year-old male on an outstanding U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation warrant.
On August 7, at approximately 3 pm, CBP officers at the Rt 5 port of entry encountered a 41-year-old male seeking to unlawfully enter Canada. Inconsistencies in questioning and further investigations revealed an outstanding warrant for being previously ordered formally removed from the United States, but failed to depart, and instead decided to unlawfully remain in the United States.
J. Enamorado was taken into custody by CBP officers once verification of his identity revealed he was the subject of an ICE warrant. Enamorado is being processed to re-instate his previous order of deportation and is currently in the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) awaiting deportation to Honduras.
"This arrest shows the commitment our frontline officers demonstrate each and every day to keep our communities safe from all threats," said CBP Assistant Port Director Brad Loughran. "I commend our officers for remaining focused on their mission and working with our partners to keep fugitives off our streets."
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
