Naming and Shaming: The First ICE Weekly Alien Criminal Releases List


(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported man, an MS-13 gang member, and two convicted murderers this week.

One convicted murderer confirmed that he traveled with the migrant caravan.

San Diego Sector Border Patrol agents identified three men illegally crossing the U.S. border at 11 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, Customs and Border Protection reported. The illegal aliens crossed about a mile east of the San Ysidro port of entry.

Once agents located and arrested the men, they found evidence that one of the illegal aliens, 46 year-old Miguel Angel Ramirez, was convicted of homicide and robbery.


Ramirez, a Honduran national, served 10 years for homicide and 3 years for robbery in his native country.

Ramirez admitted that Honduran authorities released him from prison only four months ago.

The San Diego Sector Border Patrol’s Foreign Operations Branch verified Ramirez’s testimony with the Honduran Consulate in Los Angeles.

Ramirez said he traveled with the Central American migrant caravan through Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico in order to come into the United States.

The other two men who were arrested with Ramirez are 22-year-old and 38-year-old Honduran nationals.

CBP said one of the illegal aliens was previously deported.

“It was Border Patrol agents’ effort and valued partnership with the Honduran Consulate in Los Angeles that helped us identify a dangerous convicted felon moving amongst the migrant caravan,” San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said.

In two separate incidents on Wednesday, Nov. 28, Border Patrol agents arrested a criminal illegal alien and an MS-13 gang member, CBP reported.

Border Patrol agents from Harlingen, Texas located eight illegal aliens by the Progreso Port of Entry.

Among the group, agents identified a Guatemalan national who was previously arrested and convicted of negligent homicide in St. Mary County, Maryland. He served two years in prison for the murder.

Later in the day, agents near Roma, Texas arrested a Salvadoran national who illegally entered the United States.

Records indicated that the illegal alien is linked to MS-13, and tattoos on his body also connected him to the gang.
