ICE removes Guatemalan national wanted for attempted homicide

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers removed a convicted felon and repeat immigration violator wanted in his country for attempted homicide on Dec. 29.

Dalvis Hernandez-Ixcoy, 30, a native of Guatemala, was removed by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) via an ICE Air Operations charter flight without incident from Alexandria, Louisiana, to Guatemala City, Guatemala. Once in Guatemala, ERO officers turned him over to law enforcement authorities.

“Our goal is to remove individuals who pose a public safety threat to our communities. Criminals who are wanted in their home countries for serious crimes will find no refuge here,” said Jose Correa, field office director for ERO San Antonio.

Hernandez has been previously removed from the United States four times since 2012. ERO New York initially encountered Hernandez at the Nassau County Correctional Center, East Meadow, New York, March 2012. Hernandez was ordered removed by a U.S. immigration judge Aug. 14, 2012. He was ultimately charged and convicted on three separate occasions relating to illegal entry and illegal reentry by U.S. District Courts in New Mexico, Arizona and the Southern District of Texas.

In November, ERO San Antonio received confirmation that Hernandez was wanted for attempted homicide in his native country of Guatemala.

ICE is focused on removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws.

Members of the public who have information about foreign fugitives are urged to contact ICE by calling the ICE Tip Line at 1 (866) 347-2423 or internationally at 001-1802-872-6199. They can also file a tip online by completing ICE’s online tip form.
