ICE Deports Mexican National Wanted For Sexually Assaulting Minor
Today Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced the removal of an illegal immigrant from the United States after the Sonora, Mexico Attorney General’s office issued a warrant for his arrest after he allegedly sexually abused and molested a child.
Rodrigo Castillo Alvarez has been wanted by the Mexican government since January 2 of this year, but he was only apprehended by ICE in April after he was arrested on drug and money laundering charges in Phoenix, Arizona. ICE was notified on May 1, and an immigration judge in Elroy, Arizona ordered his deportation on May 23.
On Jan. 2, the Attorney General’s Office in Sonora, Mexico, issued a warrant against Rodrigo Castillo Alvarez (a.k.a. Oscar Castillo or Alfonso Castillo Delgado) for the offenses of sexual abuse or rape of a child and child molestation. According to Mexican police records, Alvarez was alleged to be one of two predators who violated a female under the age of 12.
Alvarez, 45, came into ICE custody April 23, following his arrest by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office on drug and money laundering charges. On May 1, Mexican authorities notified ERO Phoenix that Alvarez was subject to an outstanding arrest warrant. On May 23, an immigration judge in Eloy, Arizona, ordered Alvarez removed from the United States.
It is believed Alvarez was in the United States to flee justice in Mexico.
ICE field office director Albert Carter made clear that “Foreign fugitives attempting to avoid prosecution of violent crimes committed in their home country will not find sanctuary in the United States,” and promised that the agency would continue to apprehend such individuals to keep communities safe.
Unfortunately, as President Donald Trump’s border wall has yet to be entirely completed in dangerous areas, ICE does not always arrive before wanted illegal immigrants commit more crimes in the United States.
In April, Big League Politics reported the arrest of an illegal immigrant who allegedly raped and murdered a New Jersey woman:
An illegal alien living in New Jersey was charged with kidnapping, raping, and murdering a woman in Jersey City’s Lincoln Park.
“Jorge Rios, who was identified by ICE officials as Jorge Alberto Rios-Doblado, is from Honduras and ‘has been removed from the country on two prior occasions, in 2003 and 2004,’” according to nj.com.
Law enforcement alleges that the kidnapped, raped, and then murdered Carolina Cano, a 45-year-old woman on March 24.
Earlier this year, in March, Big League Politics reported a separate incident in which an illegal immigrant allegedly shot and killed a Sheriff’s Deputy in Washington.
An illegal alien living in Washington state killed a Sheriff’s Deputy and wounded another police officer during a road rage incident on March 20, according to federal law enforcement.
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29, was a Mexican citizen who entered Laredo, Texas, in 2014 on a temporary agricultural worker visa,” said a USA Today report.
According to ICE, there is no record that Flores Del Toro ever left the United States after his visa expired, and likewise there is no record that he ever re-applied to extend his visa.
Fortunately, Alvarez was only arrested in the United States on relatively minor charges.
