Trump Justice: 'Dreamer' wanted for murder nabbed by feds in NJ and extradited

by JIM KOURI, CPP September 27, 2017

"Judicial Watch applauds the Trump administration's decision to rescind the Obama administration amnesty program for 800,000 illegal aliens.  Judicial Watch already exposed how the Obama administration bypassed security background checks for DACA recipients, which placed the nation's security and public safety at risk.  President Trump's decision helps restore the rule of law and constitutional governance.  The Trump administration's enforcement action on immigration shows the best immigration reform is to finally enforce the law."  - Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a criminal alien from the U.S. and turned him over to Honduras police officials in Central America, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

This removal, and others like it, are taking place in the midst of political arguments regarding the rescinding of President Barack Obama's DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) by President Donald Trump. 

The criminal alien -- 22-year-old Erick Raudales-Raudales, a/k/a Gerson Reiniri Raudales-Acosta -- was immediately arrested by Honduran law enforcement authorities and charged with homicide.

ICE officials say that Raudales unlawfully entered the United States, prior to 2012 when he was 18-years-old, but they claim how and where he entered the U.S. remains a mystery.

On Feb. 12, 2012, U.S. Border Patrol agents captured Raudales as an alien present in the United States without being admitted or paroled under the name Gerson Raudales-Acosta. He was subsequently brought before an administrative judge who ordered him released on bond pending formal immigration proceedings.

The teenager never showed up for his scheduled court appearance and fell off of ICE's "radar" until May 16, 2017. On that day, ERO's Newark (New Jersey) Office received a picture and fingerprint card of a subject identified as Erick Raudales-Raudales from the ICE Attaché's Office in Honduras, notifying ERO Newark that Erick Raudales-Raudales had warrants in Honduras for homicide. 

ERO agents in Newark confirmed that the fingerprints were an exact match for those  taken from Gerson Raudales-Acosta at the time of his arrest by the U.S. Border Patrol in 2012.

"On May 18, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) filed a motion to reopen Raudales-Raudales' immigration proceedings with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).  An immigration judge granted DHS's motion to reopen the case, and ERO Newark arrested Raudales-Raudales and canceled his immigration bond on June 9, 2017," according to a DHS/ICE statement.

It wasn't until July 6, 2017 that the suspected killer finally admitted to EOIR that he indeed is Erick Raudales-Raudales, the man wanted for at least one homicide in Honduras.

On Aug. 9, 2017, an immigration judge ordered Raudales-Raudales removed from the United States to Honduras. He waived his right to appeal. During the Labor Day holiday weekend, ERO officers turned him over to Honduran authorities.
