In one week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) New York deportation officers arrested five individuals, each after being released from local custody with an active immigration detainer.

These individuals are criminal aliens who were released back into our neighborhoods, posing an increased risk to New York residents,” said Thomas Decker, field office director for ERO New York. “Because of the unnecessary threat being imposed by the city’s decision to not honor ICE detainers, ICE remains committed, in the interest of public safety and national security, to welcoming changes to current New York City policies and strengthening its relationship with local law enforcement.”
