ICE agents arrest Jamaican
The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency says its Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers have arrested a Jamaican with pending felony charges following his release despite an active detainer.
An immigration detainer is a tool used by ICE and US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials when the agency identifies potentially deportable individuals who are held in jails or prisons nationwide.
ICE said the Jamaican — Najee Antonio Clarke —was arrested on June 16 outside the Queens County courthouse and is currently in ICE custody
According to ICE, Clarke entered the US on June 17, 2010, at John F Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York “as a B-2 visitor for pleasure and was authorised to remain until December 16, 2010, but failed to leave upon expiration of the waiver.
“He has current charges pending in New York and was released from ICE custody with an active detainer,” the immigration enforcement agency said.
