In 2016, 240,255 illegal fugitives were removed and returned to their country.

A total of 174,923 were apprehended while attempting to illegally enter the United States, and 65,332 were were apprehended inside the U.S., most of them were already convicted criminals.

Today, it was announced that three fugitive illegal immigrants were captured by ERO and are being processed through the appropriate channels. ERO was notified by Guatemalan authorities that Fredy Mariony Alvarado-Calderon, from Guatemala, was wanted for homicide and attempted homicide after he attempted to shoot an individual on October 2016 in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Alvarado-Calderon first attempted to enter the U. S. near Laredo, Texas in 2001, when U. S.

Border Patrol officers apprehended him and placed him in removal procedures, which was to take place on October 2001. But he was not removed from the U. S. till April 2007.

During his brief stay at that time, he was convicted of assault in Pennsylvania in 2006 and was convicted of two felons in New Jersey on July 2006. He re-entered the U.

S. illegally and was convicted of battery in Cook County, Illinois, in 2008 and currently has an active warrant for his arrest in Trenton, New Jersey. ICE ERO is currently detaining Alvarado-Calderon at the Howard County Detention Center in Maryland, pending his removal to Guatemala. They are also reviewing this case to determine if charges of unlawful re-entry, which is a felony punishable by 20 years in federal prison, should be brought against Alvarado-Calderon.
