ERO New York arrests previously removed Mexican national

ERO New York arrests previously removed Mexican national

NEW YORK — A previously removed Mexican national was arrested Thursday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in New York.  ERO deportation officers assigned to the Criminal Alien Program arrested Adrian Solis-Castro, a 50-year-old citizen of Mexico, in Queens, New York, pursuant to a federal arrest warrant issued by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, charging the him with violation of 8 USC 1326(b)(1), illegal re-entry after removal.

Solis-Castro, who was removed from the U.S. on four separate occasions, has a criminal history that includes three felony drug convictions, and a conviction for illegal re-entry after removal. On Aug. 22, he was arrested by the New York Police Department (NYPD) on the charges of forcible touching.

“This man was not only removed to his home country four times, but he has multiple felony convictions here in the United States. Now, he is being charged in federal court for illegal re-entry,” said William Joyce, deputy field office director for ERO New York.  “It is important to note that ICE continues to play a positive role in the arrest and removal of criminal aliens, and will continue to do so in the interest of keeping our communities safe.”

Solis-Castro was transferred to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service, pending criminal prosecution.
