ICE Releases Most Wanted Fugitive Criminal Aliens List

On Wednesday, the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a list of its “Most Wanted Fugitive Criminal Aliens” who are wanted for administrative orders of removal from the United States. The list includes foreign nationals convicted of committing serious crimes in the US and who have been ordered deported but remain at large. Four of them are convicted child molesters, three are convicted rapists, two have been convicted of manslaughter and one was found guilty of drug charges.


By the end of the week, officials announced they had located two men on the list who were hiding to avoid a deportation order. Albert Vinicio Torres, a 41-year-old Ecuadorean, convicted of a lewd act with a child, was arrested Wednesday and is  being held at a detention facility pending deportation. Officials also arrested Mexico native Esteban Grajiola-Mora, also convicted of a lewd act with a child. He has already been returned to Mexico.


Acting Assistant Secretary Michael J. Garcia said a dozen other names were originally scheduled to be included on the list but were arrested by ICE agents and have been deported.


The Most Wanted list is part of a BICE strategy known as the National Fugitive Operations Initiative, created in order to reduce the number of absconders who have failed to comply with an immigration judge's deportation order. Garcia said ICE would use $10 million in congressional funding to set up eight teams of agents working under the Initiative to apprehend and deport aliens convicted of crimes. There are 300,000 aliens facing deportation orders currently in the United States, and 80,000 of those have been convicted of a crime. ICE deported 36,000 criminal aliens in the first six months of this fiscal year.
