A Mexican man, wanted in his home country for murder, was deported Oct. 20 by deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
On Sept. 8, 2017, Jose Antonio Cordova-Rodriguez, 33, was arrested outside his Chicago residence by special agents and officers with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Chicago, the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), and the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force.
Cordova-Rodriguez was removed from the United States and turned over to Mexican authorities at the Brownsville, Texas, Port of Entry.
“The cooperation between the United States and the international law enforcement community was instrumental in the arrest of this foreign fugitive and highlights ICE’s global reach,” said HSI Special Agent in Charge James M. Gibbons.
Cordova-Rodriguez was previously removed from the United States in 2010, and he later illegally re-entered the United States. He has several misdemeanor convictions for crimes committed in Texas and Illinois.
