PHILADELPHIA — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed Monday a fugitive citizen of Mexico, who was wanted by authorities in his home country for rape and robbery.
Francisco Javier Diaz-Lua, 28, entered the United States on an unknown date and place without inspection or parole by an immigration officer.
On June 23, 2016, the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) arrested Mr. Diaz-Lua and issued him a notice and order of expedited removal and removed him to Mexico on the following day.
On an unknown date, he re-entered the United States without being admitted or paroled.
On May 30, 2018, ERO Philadelphia’s York sub-office arrested Mr. Diaz-Lua without incident and issued him a notice of intent/decision to reinstate prior order of removal.
While in ERO custody, ERO Philadelphia discovered and confirmed a Sept. 26, 2011, arrest warrant issued by the Gobierno del Estado de Michoacan de Ocampo, Mexico, for Mr. Diaz-Lua.
Mr. Diaz-Lua was removed from the United States and turned over to Mexican law enforcement authorities without incident.
