NEWARK, N.J. – A citizen of Ecuador was removed from the United States Dec. 23, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Upon the man’s arrival in Ecuador, he was turned over to local authorities by ICE ERO officers.

Manuel Fernando Cajamarca-Curillo, 25, the subject of an Interpol warrant of arrest in Ecuador for the rape of a minor, was ordered removed by a U.S. immigration judge in November. He was convicted in July 2012, by the Appeals Court of the Special Criminal Division of Ecuador and sentenced to eight years and four months in prison before fleeing the country and illegally entering the United States. He is also under investigation in Ecuador for the rape and murder of another minor.

“This removal highlights ICE ERO’s shared approach and collaboration to ensure border security and the rule of law,” said ERO Newark Field Office Director John Tsoukaris. “ICE will continue to work closely with domestic and international law enforcement partners to ensure individuals such as Mr. Cajamarca-Curillo are removed from the U.S.”
Since Oct. 1, 2009, ERO has removed foreign fugitives from the United States who were sought in their native countries for serious crimes, including kidnapping, rape and murder.
