ICE Removes Wanted Terrorist Captured in Chicago

U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) removed an illegal alien residing in Chicago who was wanted for terrorist activities in El Salvador. 

“A Salvadoran man wanted in his home country for his involvement in a terrorist organization was removed Wednesday by deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO),” according to a press release from August 1 said.

Pedro Juan Cruz-Cortez, 23, was flown back to El Salvador and transferred into the custody of El Salvador’s Civilian National Police.

“This case shows how effective cooperation between U.S. and Salvadoran law enforcement authorities helps keep our communities safe from violent criminal aliens who try to find safe haven in the United States from their crimes,” Louie Zamora, acting field office director of ICE Chicago said. “These cases also emphasize the vital nature of ICE immigration enforcement activities.”
