ICE Arrests Fugitive Illegal Alien Wanted for Child Rape

A male illegal alien wanted for raping a child in Brazil has been arrested in Connecticut, according to authorities.

On Tuesday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced the apprehension of a 40-year-old Brazilian fugitive who was illegally present in the U.S.

The Brazilian entered the U.S. as a tourist in March of 2022 and then stayed in the country more than a year after his visa expired until he was tracked down near his residence in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The illegal alien has been wanted for statutory rape in the Brazilian province of Parana since June of 2022, indicating that he may have fled to the U.S. to avoid impending charges at the time.

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) office in Boston became aware of the suspect’s presence in New England and finally apprehended him on February 14.

He is being held in ICE custody pending removal proceedings.

“In addition to violating our immigration laws, this unlawfully present fugitive is wanted for the rape of a minor in his home country,” ICE ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons explained in a statement.

“Such individuals present a danger to the safety of the residents in our New England communities. ERO Boston remains dedicated to apprehending, arresting and removing any such threat to our neighborhoods.”

Authorities continue to catch dangerous foreign criminals illegally present in the U.S.

Earlier this month, a Guatemalan citizen who entered the U.S. as an ‘unaccompanied minor’ and was later ordered deported was arrested in Florida for sex crimes in Oregon.

Last month, a known MS-13 gang member with three prior deportations who is wanted for murder in his home country of El Salvador was arrested by ICE agents in Foxboro, MA.

Weeks ago, another MS-13 gangbanger from El Salvador with multiple convictions for sex crimes in the U.S. was arrested in Riverdale, Maryland.

Earlier last month, a Honduran gang member with a lengthy rap sheet and six prior deportations was caught illegally crossing the Canadian border into Vermont.

Days prior, ICE arrested a previously-deported child rapist in Massachusetts who had illegally returned to the U.S. around 10 years ago and was convicted of another sex crime in 2015.
