The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) apprehended 220 removable noncitizens during a nationwide enforcement effort between March 4 and March 13. Officials identified the noncitizens as having been convicted of crimes such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, burglary, unlawful possession or use of a firearm, drug distribution or trafficking, or driving under the influence; or as those who were released from incarceration on parole or placed on community probation under supervision.

A 40-year-old citizen of Trinidad and Tobago in Teaneck, New Jersey, was held by ICE.

The T&T national was convicted in November 2022 by the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York of felony conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, felony narcotics-sell/distribute/dispense.

“Our officers continue to focus on smart, effective immigration enforcement that protects the homeland through the arrest and removal of those who undermine the safety of our communities and integrity of federal immigration law,” said ERO Executive Associate Director Corey A.
