LOS ANGELES, CA - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Los Angeles successfully completed the transfer of an El Salvador fugitive alien removal (FAR) via ICE Air Operations (IAO) charter, June 9.
Jose Luis Rodriguez-Vasquez, 37, is a Salvadoran national wanted by law enforcement authorities for the rape of a minor or disabled person in his native country.
On Dec. 2, 2011, Rodriguez-Vasquez illegally entered the United States near Campo, California, without being admitted or paroled by an immigration officer. He was encountered by U.S. Border Patrol (USBP), issued an expedited removal order, and removed from the U.S. On Dec. 6, 2011, Rodriguez-Vasquez was encountered a second time by USBP after illegally re-entering the U.S., near Naco, Arizona.

Rodriguez-Vasquez later illegally entered the U.S., at or near an unknown time and location.
Rodriguez-Vasquez was later apprehended by ERO Los Angeles April 8, and was subsequently removed from the United States as a “high profile removal” – a special designation given to foreign fugitives, national security threats, and other special interest removals.
