Sixty-three people have been arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Colorado and Wyoming as part of ongoing operations targeting people living in the country illegally who have been arrested or convicted of assault, domestic violence and other crimes, according to an ICE news release.
ICE officers recently arrested people who are living illegally in the country, according to the release, and “who are removable from the U.S. due to their criminal histories.” The news release did not specify how long the operation lasted.
Among those arrested by ICE are:
- A 27-year-old citizen of Mexico, in Denver, with convictions for multiple crimes including child abuse and indecent exposure.
- A 29-year-old citizen of Mexico, in Aurora, who faces multiple criminal charges including robbery, assault and child abuse.
- A 40-year-old citizen of Mexico, in Longmont, with convictions for DUI and felony vehicular assault – DUI.
People in violation of immigration laws may be subject to arrest and detention by ICE, the release said. They then face possible deportation orders from the United States.
“Behind each one of these arrests is a child who has suffered abuse or a battered spouse or a person who nearly died,” said John Fabbricatore, Denver’s ICE field office director, in the release. “We specifically targeted our enforcement actions at abusers and helped victims by eliminating the threat posed by their perpetrators, and in some cases, preventing future victimization by recidivist offenders.”
