ICE delivers accused sexual predator to Guatemala

PHILADELPHIA — On July 13, officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed an unlawfully present foreign fugitive to his home country of Guatemala. Carlos Horacio Suarez Monroy, 39, was wanted by Guatemalan law enforcement authorities for aggravated sexual assault. Upon arrival in Guatemala, Suarez was turned over to Guatemalan National Police.

“We are proud to work with our international partners to apprehend and remove foreign fugitives and return them to their home country to face justice. The dedicated professionals of the Enforcement and Removal Operations teams perform a difficult job with compassion and humanity while keeping Americans safe from dangerous criminals that have come to the U.S. illegally,” said Jeffrey Seals, acting field office director of ERO Philadelphia.

In July 2013, the United States Border Patrol (USBP) arrested Suarez near Edna, Texas, and served him with a Notice to Appear in immigration court. On the same day he was released on an order of recognizance. On Jan. 13, Interpol notified the ERO field office in Boston of Suarez’s Red Notice for aggravated sexual assault in Guatemala. On Jan. 16, ERO Boston arrested him in Winthrop, Massachusetts. He was subsequently transferred to the Moshannon Valley Processing Center in Philipsburg. On March 17, an immigration judge with the Executive Office for Immigration Review in Cleveland, Ohio, ordered Suarez removed to Guatemala. Suarez appealed but withdrew his appeal in June.

Members of the public who have information about foreign fugitives are urged to contact ICE by calling the ICE Tip Line at 1 866-DHS-2-ICE or internationally at 001-1802-872-6199. They can also file a tip online by completing ICE’s online tip form.
