SAN FRANCISCO — Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) San Francisco, removed Jose Guadalupe Villegas Fuerte, a 35-year-old foreign fugitive with citizenship in Mexico, from the U.S. on Sept 11.
Villegas was removed from Bakersfield via ground transportation to the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Upon arrival at the port of entry, he was turned over to the proper authorities.
Villegas entered the United States on an unknown date and at an unknown location without being inspected, admitted, or paroled by an immigration official.
He’s been arrested and convicted for driving under the influence, false imprisonment with violence and inflicting injury on a spouse.
ERO arrested Villegas on Aug. 24 following his release from the California Department of Corrections.
“ERO officers are committed to enforcing our nation’s immigration laws against violent criminals, and other noncitizens who pose a threat to public safety,” said ERO Field Office Director Moises Becerra.
