WASHINGTON U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcements (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Denver Fugitive Operations team officers arrested one of EROs most wanted fugitives Friday morning in Aurora, Colorado, making a second arrest in the process.
Jose Victor Bonilla-Melendez, aka Anthony Garcia-Melendez, 48, a citizen of Honduras, was located after ERO received a tip about his whereabouts from someone who saw a social media post by the local Denver ABC affiliate regarding his inclusion among ICEs most wanted fugitives. BonillaMelendez was wanted by ICE for removal from the U.S. as convicted sex offender, last seen in Aurora.
Bonilla-Melendez has a criminal history that includes felony convictions for assault causing serious bodily injury, sexual assault, and unlawful re-entry of a deported alien. He has been removed from the U.S. on two prior occasions, most recently on April 5, 2006. On Dec. 7, 2014, the Aurora Police Department arrested him on local charges, but the subject posted bond before an ICE detainer could be placed. Despite numerous attempts by ICE to locate his whereabouts, he remained at-large.
During Bonilla-Melendezs arrest, ERO officers also encountered another individual who they arrested Bonilla-Melendezs brother, German Bonilla, who was convicted of sexual assault against a child and unlawful re-entry after deportation following conviction for an aggravated felony. German has also been removed from the U.S. twice previously.
The unanticipated encounter of Jose Bonilla-Melendezs brother, German Bonilla another criminal alien demonstrates the dangerous nature of our Fugitive Operations Teams, said Lynch. Our ICE officers must stay vigilant to the unexpected.
I’m confused. Why are they removing him? Why not put him in federal prison for decades. He’s just going to sneak back in.
“Im confused. Why are they removing him? Why not put him in federal prison for decades. Hes just going to sneak back in.”
Or tell them both if they are ever found on this side of our border with Mexico again, they will simply be shot!
Remove him,build the Wall,with guard towers,and let him sneak back in.
It should be whispered in their ears “if you come back to America we are authorized to kill you”!
Why not put him in federal prison for decades.
I don’t want to waste a penny feeding them let alone board them.......do you?
Or just shoot them after they hit the Mexican side of the border.
Both have sneaked back in three times!!!!
Time to put them away for good...
Maybe put the word out to the cartels he did some informing for kid glove treatment?
Third deportation should be from 30,000 feet....
Sorry...Sneaked BACK in twice...Sneaked three times total...
Maybe someone has the knowledge to explain. If he is a dangerous felon, are Mexican authorities just going to let him run around abusing Mexican citizens?
Why can’t we castrate him and then drop him on the middle of the Gulf of Mexico?
They’ve probably already served their time on the convictions but a detainer was not issued for them for ICE. They’re probably part of the 80,000 or so criminals Obamas departments dumped back on the streets.
But, but, the People’s Republic of Denver is not a liberal sanctuary city run by a corrupt Dorkbama the Muslim eunuch clone and another corrupt Dorkbama the Muslim eunuch clone Police Chief.
Build the wall NOW.
I wish they would put rid chips in them. Easy to scan if they have fake ID.
With him in it.
“I wish they would put rid chips in them. Easy to scan if they have fake ID.”
Well, they are sorta like cattle, so maybe an ear tag would suffice.(s) Actually, you have a great idea. Give the “returnees” a choice, get “chipped” or spend six months in jail here before we send you home. Make it “voluntary,” so we don’t get the Liberal Robes getting their panties in a wad.
