CLEVELAND — Deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Detroit Field Office apprehended a Mexican national in Akron, Ohio who is wanted for sexual abuse of minor in Mexico, Dec. 13, 2022.

An arrest warrant was issued in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, on May 3, 2021, for Jose Trinidad Montes-Solorio, a citizen of Mexico, for sexual abuse of a minor.

On Jan. 7, 2016, following an arrest for local charges an immigration judge from the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) ordered Montes-Solorio removed from the United States. He was removed to Mexico five days later.

On an unknown date and location, Montes-Solorio re-entered the U.S. without being inspected by an immigration official.

ERO Detroit working with their Mexico City counterparts received information on Montes-Solorio’s illegal re-entry into the United States and his possible location.

“Working with our international partners, we were able to locate and apprehend this public safety threat,” said Matthew Putra, acting field office director, ERO Detroit. “Foreign fugitives evading justice will not find safe harbor in the communities of Michigan and Ohio.”

ERO Detroit arrested Montes-Solorio and served him with a notice of intent/decision to reinstate order on Dec. 13, 2022. Montes-Solorio is currently detained in ICE custody, without bond, pending removal.

The ERO Detroit Field office oversees sub-offices in both Michigan and Ohio.

ICE officers make enforcement decisions on a case-by-case basis in a professional and responsible manner, informed by their experience as law enforcement officials and in a way that best protects against the greatest threats to the homeland.

In Fiscal Year (FY) 2021, ERO arrested 12,025 individuals with aggravated felony convictions. Offenses associated with noncitizens arrested in FY 2021 included 1,506 homicide related offenses, 3,415 sexual assaults, 19,549 assaults, 2,717 robberies, and 1,063 kidnappings.

ICE’s ERO directorate upholds U.S. immigration law at, within, and beyond our borders. ERO operations target public safety threats, such as convicted criminal noncitizens and gang members, as well as individuals who have otherwise violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judges. ERO deportation officers assigned to Interpol also assist in targeting foreign fugitives or Fugitive Arrest and Removal (FAR) cases who are wanted for crimes committed abroad and who are now at-large in the U.S. ERO manages all aspects of the immigration enforcement process, including identification and arrest, detention, bond management, supervised release, as well as transportation and removal. In addition, ERO repatriates noncitizens ordered removed from the U.S. to more than 170 countries around the world.
