ICE removes Polish foreign fugitive wanted for money laundering

MIAMI – Aligned with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) civil immigration enforcement priorities, officers with ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Miami Field Office escorted and removed an unlawfully present foreign fugitive and public safety threat from the United States. Adam Dziak, 46, was wanted by law enforcement authorities in his native country for money laundering, fraud, and forgery.

Pursuant to an INTERPOL Red Notice, Dziak was arrested outside of his residence in Miami by ERO officers Sept. 27, 2021. ERO charged him with inadmissibility as an immigrant without an immigrant visa and detained him at the Krome Service Processing Center. An immigration judge with the Executive Office for Immigration Review issued a final order of removal for Dziak Dec. 1, 2021. Dziak departed Miami International Airport Jan. 26; upon arrival ERO officers turned him over to authorities in Warsaw, Poland, Jan. 27.

“By focusing enforcement efforts on individuals with foreign criminal warrants, we strive to deny international criminals the use of the United States to avoid answering criminal charges and give victims of crimes closure,” said John Longshore, ERO’s Deputy Attaché for Removal.

ERO Miami coordinated Dziak’s removal with ERO’s Deputy Attaché for Removal and the Polish National Police.

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-2ICE. They can also file a tip online by completing ICE’s online tip form.

ICE focuses its civil immigration enforcement priorities on the apprehension and removal of noncitizens who pose a threat to our national security, public safety, and border security.
