(IOWA) Justice Dept Court Report: Cedar Rapids man sentenced to 140 years for child sexual exploitation offenses following ICE/HSI investigation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.22: A man who sexually exploited two girls and committed child pornography offenses was sentenced January 18 to 140 years in federal prison, announced U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent in Charge Katherine Greer and United States Attorney Sean Berry.

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: Previously abused a 7-year old girl then enticed 2 girls to send pornographic images of themselves to him: Nathan Nosley, age 30, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the sentence after a June 9, 2021 jury verdict finding him guilty of sexual exploitation of children, distribution of child pornography, receipt of child pornography, three counts of possession of child pornography, and accessing child pornography.

The evidence at trial showed that, between 2018 and 2020, Nosley persuaded, induced, and enticed two girls to produce and send him pornographic images of themselves. Nosley also distributed child pornography to others, used cell phone apps to receive child pornography, used a cell phone to access child pornography, and possessed child pornography on a cell phone, on a memory card, and in an e-mail account.

“Criminals seeking to exploit children should pay close attention to this case and the resulting sentence,” said SAC Greer. “HSI and our law enforcement partners are very passionate about protecting the children in our community and work tirelessly every day to ensure we find, stop and prosecute, those who seek to victimize them.”

The evidence at trial and sentencing also showed that, prior to these offenses, defendant sexually abused a seven-year-old-girl. Nosley was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Nosley was sentenced to 1,680 months’ imprisonment. He was also ordered to make $12,000 in restitution to four victims depicted in child pornography he possessed. He also must serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term, and he must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.

“This case is a tragic example of the dangers children face on the internet.” said United States Attorney Sean Berry. “Child predators are constantly trying to manipulate kids into having sex or providing sexually explicit photos. We all must do our parts to prevent these crimes. Parents and loved ones should talk to kids about the dangers lurking on the internet and monitor what kids are doing online.”

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and investigated by HSI, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Iowa State Patrol, and the Marion Police Department. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.

HSI is committed to combating the sexual exploitation of children. Investigations of child sexual exploitation are among HSI’s primary investigative priorities. The sexual abuse of children impacts the most vulnerable segment of our society. HSI knows the importance of education and community awareness regarding the dangers of online activity. Providing children, teens, parents and teachers with information regarding the potential dangers of online environments and how to stay safe online can help prevent many instances of child exploitation. That is why HSI has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s NetSmartz and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces to develop Project iGuardian. For more information about Project iGuardian and online resources for children visit www.ice.gov/topics/iGuardians.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(SAN DIEGO) Justice Dept Court Report: Decade-long ICE HSI investigation leads to prison sentence of 15yrs for Sinaloa Cartel associate #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.16: After a nearly decade-long U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) investigation, a drug trafficker and money launderer received a sentence of more than 15 years in federal prison Jan. 10.

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: For his role in supervising and managing couriers who helped smuggle bulk cash across the U.S.-Mexico border, Roberto Gallegos-Lechuga, 39, of Sinaloa, Mexico, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit international money laundering in July 2021.

Gallegos-Lechuga’s prison sentence is the latest in several sentences handed out following an HSI San Diego investigation that began in 2012. HSI San Diego began investigating a money laundering organization operating in the U.S. and Mexico. Through its investigation, HSI determined that individuals working on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel coordinated the smuggling of large amounts of bulk currency through the Southern California ports of entry.

“Today’s sentencing is the culmination of years of relentless work by Homeland Security Investigations and its partners targeting the Sinaloa Cartel,” said HSI San Diego Special Agent in Charge Chad Plantz. “This investigation highlights HSI’s dedication to go after both cartel drug trafficking and money laundering activity. The sentencing sends a resounding message to transnational criminal organizations that HSI and our partners are unyielding in our pursuit of justice.”

The investigation revealed that individuals linked to the Sinaloa Cartel used money services businesses and currency brokers to recruit money couriers to transport bulk cash from various locations throughout Southern California and other parts of the U.S., then deliver it to stash houses in Mexico. Once in Mexico, the currency was exchanged at a favorable rate from U.S. Dollars to Mexican Pesos. The cartel also used fictitious entities to deposit repatriated U.S. currency in U.S. banks.

Gallegos-Lechuga, who was extradited from Mexico to San Diego in August 2018, is one of eight individuals, including Omar Ayon-Diaz, Osvaldo Contreras-Arriaga, Cesar Hernandez-Martinez, Gibran Rodriguez-Mejia, Oscar Rodriguez-Guevara, Bianca Acedo Ojeda and Joel Acedo Ojeda, to plead guilty and receive federal prison sentences for their roles in the conspiracy. Approximately 20 additional individuals have all pleaded guilty and received various sentences for their roles related to the conspiracy.

HSI San Diego’s 10-year investigation into the Sinaloa Cartel resulted in the seizure of more than $6 million in illicit currency, 336 pounds of methamphetamine, 40 gallons of liquid methamphetamine, 235 pounds of cocaine, 10 pounds of heroin, and 120 pounds of marijuana.

“Those who manage drug trafficking and money laundering efforts for the Sinaloa Cartel, one of the most violent criminal organizations in the world, will continue to face justice in this district,” said U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman for the Southern District of California. “Stopping the flow of funds to drug cartels and of deadly drugs into the United States continues to be a priority for us and our law enforcement partners.”

“Violent transnational criminal organizations like the Sinaloa Cartel pose a danger to our communities,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “They export dangerous narcotics to the United States and their illicit proceeds corrupt our financial system. We will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. I want to thank the Government of Mexico for extraditing Lechuga-Gallegos to the United States to face criminal charges. Through such partnerships, we will attack and work to dismantle dangerous drug cartels.”

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(MINNEAPOLIS) ICE/HSI REPORT: St. Paul shows support for northland victims of human trafficking during there awareness campaign #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.11: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents across the country will come together Jan. 11, to show solidarity for victims of human trafficking, while pushing to educate the communities it supports on the various signs and forms of the crime.

#AceDailyNews ICE/HSI News Report: Agency asks for community support in efforts educate community during awareness campaign

In recognition of this important topic, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Blue Campaign hosts the Wear Blue Day to encourage participants to dress in blue attire and post photos on social media using the hashtag #WearBlueDay, to show support for trafficking victims, raise awareness and provide prevention information about this crime.

“HSI St. Paul special agents remain vigilant in their efforts to combat human trafficking and all other crimes of exploitation and victimization,” said HSI St. Paul Acting Special Agent in Charge Jamie Holt.

Human trafficking is a crime that involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to lure innocent and vulnerable victims into forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.

HSI also partners with the DHS Blue Campaign to educate the public, law enforcement and other industry partners to recognize indicators of human trafficking, and how to appropriately respond to possible cases. The campaign works closely with all DHS components, including HSI, to develop training and educational resources as a means of reducing victimization in vulnerable populations.

In fiscal year 2021, HSI human trafficking arrests across the country increased nearly 30%, from to 2,360 from 1,746 in the previous year, with 728 victims identified and assisted.

Due to fear and intimidation by their traffickers, language barriers, and sometimes anxiety about law enforcement, many victims will not seek help even when given the opportunity in a public setting. Community members can help, and even potentially save lives, by being vigilant and recognizing some of the common indicators to identify possible human trafficking including:

  • Does the person appear disconnected from family, friends, community organizations, or houses of worship?
  • Has a child stopped attending school?
  • Has the person had a sudden or dramatic change in behavior?
  • Is a juvenile engaged in commercial sex acts?
  • Is the person disoriented or confused, or showing signs of mental or physical abuse?
  • Does the person have bruises in various stages of healing?
  • Is the person fearful, timid, or submissive?
  • Does the person show signs of having been denied food, water, sleep, or medical care?
  • Is the person often in the company of someone to whom he or she defers? Or someone who seems to be in control of the situation, e.g., where they go or who they talk to?
  • Does the person appear to be coached on what to say?
  • Is the person living in unsuitable conditions?
  • Does the person lack personal possessions and appear not to have a stable living situation?
  • Does the person have freedom of movement? Can the person freely leave where they live? Are there unreasonable security measures?

If someone believes trafficking may be occurring, they should not approach the potential suspect or victim(s). For the safety of all concerned, suspicious activity should first be reported to local law enforcement. Tips can also be submitted anonymously online at ICE tipline, or by phone at 866-347-2423.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of DHS, responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries.

(CORPUS CHRISTI, Tx.) Justice Dept Court Report: Third gang member sentenced to prison for series of truck stop ATM robberies and related assault #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.10: The investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Corpus Christi with assistance from sheriff’s offices in Live Oak, Angelina, Brazoria, Wharton, Medina and Cass Counties in Texas; and police departments in Angleton, Cleveland, Seguin and Lufkin, Texas, as well as Vinton, Louisiana.

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: A third Houston-area gang member was ordered to federal prison Wednesday for his role in a string of ATM robberies at truck stops in Texas and Louisiana and for a related assault of a good Samaritan who tried to intervene in one of the robberies.

Christopher Bernard Brown, 39, was sentenced Jan. 5 in the Southern District of Texas on two counts of interference with commerce by threats or violence and ordered to serve 90 months in federal prison to be immediately followed by three years of supervised release. He must also pay restitution. Brown pleaded guilty to the charges Sept. 30, 2021.

Previously sentenced for their roles in the robberies and related assault were Wesley Jerome Davis, 28, and Kevin Wilson, 33, who both pleaded guilty July 29, 2021. Wilson was sentenced to 90 months in prison, while Davis was ordered to serve 60 months in prison. Thomas Alec Buckley, 26, has also been convicted for his role in the robberies and assault, but has yet to be sentenced.

At the sentencing hearing, the court heard of approximately 33 related truck stop robberies that occurred between May 29-Sept. 2019 that were part of the multi-district and interstate Hobbs Act conspiracy. The court also heard of the numerous employees and customers who were traumatized as a result of Brown’s and the others’ actions. During the robberies, they threatened or used physical force towards customers or employees to steal or attempt to steal ATMs and the currency inside the ATM from at least nine Love’s Travel Stops throughout Texas and Louisiana. Brown typically served as a scout or lookout while Davis, Wilson, Buckley or others wore masks and gloves and placed straps or chains around the ATMs. Then, a vehicle connected to the chains would accelerate to dislodge the bolted-down machines. Co-conspirators would lift the dislodged ATMs into the waiting vehicle and quickly drive away.

The attempts failed in Angleton, Natalia and Domino. However, the robbery crew was able to obtain monies from the stolen ATMs in Hungerford, Seguin, Lufkin, Cleveland, and Three Rivers as well as Vinton, Louisiana.

In the Three Rivers robbery, co-conspirators came into contact with Love’s employees or customers, at which time Brown stated, “What are you gonna do?!! What are you gonna do?!!” The masked or hooded suspects also made menacing gestures towards the employees. Love’s Travel Stop employees did not intervene with the men for fear of sustaining serious bodily injury.

In Seguin, a good Samaritan attempted to stop the ATM robbery, but Davis struck him twice, at which time he fell to the floor and suffered bodily injury from a head wound.

Brown will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future. Buckley remains on bond pending sentencing.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Manning is prosecuting the case.

(PHOENIX, Ariz.) Justice Dept Court Report: Nine Phoenix-area people indicted for payment protection program fraud of $23-million #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.01: Earlier this month, special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) participated in an investigation that lead to the arrests of nine people for financial fraud.

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: Jason Coleman, 40, and Kimberly Coleman, 38, of Mesa, Arizona, made their initial appearance in federal court recently on a 62-count indictment charging them with Conspiracy, Bank Fraud, Wire Fraud, and Transactional Money Laundering.

A federal grand jury previously indicted the Colemans and seven other individuals in connection with a fraudulent scheme to obtain approximately $23 million in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. The nine defendants are accused of then using those PPP funds to purchase vehicles, properties, and other luxurious items.

According to the indictments, from April 2020 through April 2021, the conspirators in this scheme submitted or assisted in submitting PPP loan applications on behalf of 18 businesses, seeking loans between $100,000 and $2.2 million for each company.

In the loan applications, the defendants certified that each business was in operation and had employees for whom it paid salaries and payroll taxes, that the funds would be used to retain workers or make mortgage, lease, or utility payments, and that the information provided in the loan applications was true and accurate.

The indictment further charges Jason and Kimberly Coleman, the married couple conspired to prepare and submit approximately two dozen false and fraudulent PPP loan applications in an attempt to receive more than $30 million in PPP funds. The Colemans were successful in ten of those submissions and fraudulently obtained more than $13 million in PPP funds.

According to the eight other connected indictments, seven defendants conspired to submit eight false and fraudulent PPP loan applications and received more than $10 million in PPP funds. The individuals named in the indictments include:

  • Willie Mitchell aka Blu Mitchell, 40, of Phoenix, Arizona
  • Jason Nolte, 39, of Phoenix, Arizona
  • Sean Swaringer, 56, of Peoria, Arizona
  • Vanessa Swaringer, 54, of Peoria, Arizona
  • Toni Richardson, 52, of Phoenix, Arizona
  • Keenya Williams, 40, of Phoenix, Arizona
  • Darrell Lieteau, 56, of Phoenix, Arizona

These cases were investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from HSI, Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, and the Small Business Administration – Office of the Inspector General.

An indictment is merely an allegation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move.

(TEXAS) Justice Dept Court Report: A Laredo man was sentenced Wednesday to more than five years in prison for attempting to export firearms, firearm magazines and thousands of rounds of ammunition to Mexico #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.23: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

#AceDailyNews DOJ Report: North Texas man sentenced to 5 years in prison for attempting to export weapons and ammunition following an ICE/HSI, federal partner assisted, investigation

Jose Rafael Vasquez, 64, of Dallas, Texas, was sentenced Dec. 15 by U.S. District Judge Diana Saldana to 63 months in federal prison to be immediately followed by a three-year term of supervised release. At the hearing, the court heard additional information, including the fact that the firearms bore decorative handles and were quite expensive, which criminal organizations highly prized in Mexico.

Judge Saldana noted Vasquez had also previously purchased a semi-automatic rifle in Garland, Texas in 2017 which was later found in Durango, Mexico, after a shootout between Mexican law enforcement and armed criminal groups. Authorities directly traced the rifle to Vasquez as the last known legal purchaser. Vasquez was convicted July 1 after a two-day jury trial.

According to court documents, on Oct. 15, 2020, Vasquez attempted to exit the United States into Mexico through the Laredo Port of Entry. During initial inspection, CBP discovered suspicious bundles zip-tied to the undercarriage of the vehicle. They appeared to contain ammunition. Further inspection revealed three AK-47 rifles, eight semi-automatic handguns of various calibers, 16 handgun magazines and approximately 4,714 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition hidden inside his vehicle.

The defense attempted to convince the jury Vasquez did not know about the items inside the vehicle. They did not believe his claims and found him guilty as charged.

Vasquez will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Francisco J. Rodriguez and David Fawcett, Southern District of Texas, prosecuted this case

Among the notable arrests included 11 individuals wanted for homicide/capital murder, 74 for assault, 68 for weapons offenses, 21 for robbery, 135 for drug offenses, 28 for burglary, 29 for sex offenses, and five for arson.

“The number one priority for all law enforcement agencies is to keep the public safe,” said Brad Scott, assistant special agent in charge of HSI Corpus Christi. “By coming together in a common mission with our law enforcement partners in the Gulf Coast Violent Offender Task Force to achieve this goal, we are able to pool our resources and more efficiently and effectively remove threats to public safety from the community.”

“As violent crime and gang violence continue to rise and plague our cities and counties, those of us in the law enforcement community must be ready and willing to engage,” said U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Texas T. Michael O’Connor. “The goal of Operation Triple Beam is to foster safer communities by providing immediate relief from gang-related violence by investigating and arresting fugitive gang members and the criminal organizations responsible for committing violent crimes. I am extremely proud of all our law enforcement partners who have worked so diligently these past several months.”

Participating agencies in Operation Triple Beam included: USMS; HSI Corpus Christi; Corpus Christi Police Department; Corpus Christi Independent School District Police; Nueces County Sheriff’s Office; Texas Department of Public Safety; Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Office of Inspector General; Drug Enforcement Administration; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

(ARKANSAS) Justice Dept Court Report: ICE/HSI investigation leads to guilty verdict for former reality television personality #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.10: Following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a federal jury convicted an Arkansas man today for receiving and possessing material depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: ICE/HSI/Operation Predator: According to documents and evidence presented during trial, Joshua James Duggar, 33, of Springdale, Ark., repeatedly downloaded and viewed images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children, including images of prepubescent children and depictions of sadistic abuse.

HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free Tip Line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or by completing its online tip form. Both are staffed around the clock by investigators. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, via its toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST.

“Because of the exceptional efforts by HSI special agents and our law enforcement partners, a child predator has been brought to justice. Every time child exploitation imagery is shared, it re-victimizes innocent and vulnerable children,” Jack Staton, HSI New Orleans acting Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “The verdict demonstrates that regardless of an individual’s notoriety or influence, they are not above the law. HSI agents make it a priority to protect children by investigating these offenders and ensuring they pay for their incomprehensible actions.”

Duggar, a former reality television personality who appeared with his family on the TLC series 19 Kids and Counting, installed a password-protected partition on the hard drive of his desktop computer at his used car lot in Springdale to avoid pornography-detecting software on the device. He then accessed the partition to download child sexual abuse material from the internet multiple times over the course of three days in May 2019. The password for the partition was the same one he used for other personal and family accounts. Duggar downloaded the material using the dark web and online file-sharing software, viewed it, and then removed it from his computer.

“Over seven percent of the cases sentenced in the year 2020 in the Western District of Arkansas were child pornography and sexual abuse cases,” said the United States Attorney for Western Arkansas Clay Fowlkes.  “Our office is focused on expending all the resources necessary to the very important work of protecting children in Arkansas and elsewhere.  This verdict sends the message that these cases are a top priority for our office. This verdict also demonstrates that no person is above the law.  Regardless of wealth, social status, or fame, our office will continue to seek out all individuals who seek to abuse children and victimize them through the downloading, possession, and sharing of child pornography.”

Law enforcement in Arkansas detected Duggar’s activity during an undercover investigation involving the online file-sharing program, subsequently searched his car lot in November 2019, and seized Duggar’s desktop computer as well as other evidence. Significant evidence was found that pointed to Duggar’s presence at the times of the offenses, including pictures that Duggar took on his phone that geolocated at or near the car lot. Duggar also sent multiple timestamped text messages to various individuals that indicated he was at the car lot at the relevant times; the messages were sent, and the iPhone pictures were created, at times within minutes of when the child sexual abuse material was downloaded or displayed on the desktop computer. Additionally, he was the only paid employee on the lot at those times.

Duggar was convicted of receipt and possession of child pornography. He is scheduled to be sentenced on a later date.  Receipt of child pornography is punishable by a term of imprisonment of five to 20 years. Possession of child pornography depicting prepubescent children has a maximum penalty of 20 years of imprisonment as well.  A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

“Today’s verdict sends a message that we will track down and prosecute people who download and view child sexual abuse material, regardless of the lengths they go to conceal their conduct,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “I am grateful for the efforts of the prosecution team and our law enforcement partners who helped ensure the defendant will be held accountable for his crimes. I hope today’s conviction serves as a reminder of the Department’s steadfast commitment to bringing to justice those who callously contribute to the online sexual exploitation of young children.”

Homeland Security Investigations Fayetteville, Arkansas, the Little Rock Police Department, and the High Technology Investigative Unit of the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Carly Marshall and Dustin Roberts of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas and Trial Attorney William G. Clayman of CEOS are prosecuting the case.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 Special Agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI TAKEDOWN REPORT: US-Brazil coordination leads to takedown of significant human smuggling ring on Dec.02: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.07: On Dec. 2, as part of Operation Blood Ties and with support from U.S. law enforcement, Brazilian authorities executed 21 search warrants and eight arrests in the states of Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais.

#AceDailyNews Operation Blood Ties Report: ICE/HSI Together Investigative efforts by Brazilian Federal Police in concert with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Criminal Division led to eight arrests and the disruption of a major human smuggling ring based in Brazil.

The arrests included numerous Lebanese, Bangladeshi nationals, and Brazilian nationals on Brazilian federal charges of human smuggling and operating a criminal enterprise. The human smuggling organization is alleged to be responsible for the illicit smuggling of scores of individuals from Bangladesh and other countries in South Asia into Brazil, and ultimately destined for the United States.

“We are grateful to the Brazilian Federal Police for their continued partnership in combating transnational criminal organizations,” said HSI Brasilia Acting Attaché Patrick Chen. “This successful operation shows the importance of international collaboration when it comes to disrupting human smuggling networks who undermine our immigration system and put countless lives at risk while doing so.”

“Transnational criminal organizations involved with human smuggling are a continuing threat to border security, public safety and national security, but today through our strong domestic and international partnerships, we were able to significantly impact their network,” said Scott Brown, special agent in charge for HSI Phoenix. “HSI is fully committed to working with partner nations to identify and dismantle illicit activities and criminal organizations worldwide who pose a threat to our nation.”

“Collaborating with our international law enforcement partners is a cornerstone of the Criminal Division’s strategy to combat human smuggling,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “The Brazilian Federal Police are valued partners in this effort, and this successful operation highlights the efficacy of our combined efforts in dismantling criminal organizations that threaten border security and endanger the lives of the people they smuggle in the process.”

U.S. authorities assisted the Brazilian Federal Police through coordination led by HSI Brasilia and the Extraterritorial Criminal Travel Strike Force (ECT) program, a partnership between the Justice Department, Criminal Division’s Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section (HRSP), and HSI. The ECT program focuses on human smuggling networks that may present national security or public safety risks, or present grave humanitarian concerns. ECT has dedicated investigative, intelligence and prosecutorial resources to combat this threat. ECT coordinates and receives assistance from other U.S. government agencies and foreign law enforcement authorities.

HSI Brasilia and HSI Phoenix led U.S. investigative efforts, working in concert with the HSI Human Smuggling Unit ECT program, Operation CITADEL, and HSI’s Biometric Identification Transnational Migration Alert Program (BITMAP). The U.S Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section and the Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs both provided significant legal and other assistance in this matter.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move.

HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 86 overseas locations in 54 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI Operation Kaluna Report: To make the interdiction of wildlife trafficking a global priority by protecting wildlife from poachers and the transnational criminal organisations who profit from illegal trade #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.21: HSI is committed to putting a stop to the illegal multi-billion-dollar wildlife trafficking industry and the criminal organizations behind it,” said Patrick McElwain, HSI International Operations Assistant Director.

#AceDailyNews ICE/HSI Report: An investigation leads to arrests for ivory and rhinoceros horn trafficking with the most recent by HSI Seattle, in conjunction with the Department of State, DOJ, US Fish and Wildlife Service, CBP, Seattle Police Department and HSI Nairobi, spearheaded the investigation that led to Herdade Lokua, 23, and Jospin Mujangi, 31, of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), being arrested and indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiracy, money laundering, smuggling and Lacey Act violations for trafficking elephant ivory and white rhinoceros horn from DRC to Seattle, Nov. 3.

The illicit trade in wildlife has national security implications, to include economic instability, restraints to biodiversity, and can even cause human disease outbreaks. Most notably, the illegal trade is endangering wildlife worldwide, and pushing species such as the rhinoceros, elephant, and tiger towards extinction. The cooperation and information sharing between HSI, US Customs and Border Protection, Department of Justice, US Fish and Wildlife Service and local law enforcement has led to multiple operational and intelligence information exchanges in support of their shared mission in eradicating illegal wildlife trafficking.”

The 11-count indictment alleges that Lokua and Mujangi worked with a middleman to smuggle four packages into the United States. In August and September, 2020, the defendants sent three shipments containing a total of about 49 pounds of ivory by air freight to Seattle. In May, they sent another package with approximately five pounds of rhinoceros horn. At the same time, the defendants conspired to conduct large transactions via ocean freight, offering the buyer more than two tons of elephant ivory, one ton of pangolin scales, and multiple intact rhinoceros horns. On Nov. 2, they arrived in Washington State to negotiate the details of such a deal and were arrested in Edmonds.

The arrests and indictment are part of “Operation Kuluna,” an international operation conducted between the Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Seattle, the Government of the DRC, and the U.S. Embassy in Kinshasa, DRC. The investigation is ongoing – immediately after the arrests, the task force in DRC acted on information provided by HSI-Seattle to seize 2,067 pounds of ivory and 75 pounds of pangolin scales in Kinshasa worth approximately $3.5 million, all contraband related to wildlife trafficking.

In order to conceal the tusks and horn, the indictment states that Lokua and Mujangi had them cut into smaller pieces which were painted black. They were then mixed with ebony wood to avoid detection by customs authorities. The packages were all declared as “wood” with values between $50-$60. The buyer paid the defendants $14,500 for the ivory and $18,000 for the horn. Lokua and Mujangi also sold 55 pounds of pangolin scales to a U.S. buyer but ultimately did not ship them.

The indictment further alleges that the defendants paid bribes to authorities in Kinshasa in order to ship the merchandise, and discussed how larger shipments would be packed in 20-foot shipping containers and concealed in timber or corn in order to avoid detection. The investigation in DRC is ongoing.

HSI uses its customs authorities to investigate illegal wildlife smuggled over the border through concealment and a variety of fraudulent schemes and practices including false invoicing, false claims of origin, false markings/labeling, misclassification and false description.

The Lacey Act is the nation’s oldest wildlife trafficking statute and prohibits, among other things, falsely labeling shipments containing wildlife. The United States, DRC, and approximately 181 other countries are signatories to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (“CITES”). CITES is an international treaty that restricts trade in species that may be threatened with extinction. CITES has permit requirements for protected wildlife, and the indictment alleges that the defendants did not obtain any of the necessary papers or declarations from DRC or the United States.

The CITES treaty has listed the white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) as a protected species since 1975 and the African elephant (Loxodanta africana) since 1977. All species of pangolin were added to the CITES appendix with the greatest level of protection in 2017. All three mammals are threatened by poaching and habitat loss.

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment for the smuggling and money laundering charges and five years for the conspiracy and Lacey Act violations.

#AceNewsReport – Nov.20: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Nogales assisted by U.S. Border Patrol

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: ICE/HSI Nogales/CBP Human smuggling case leads to guilty plea, Amalia Gonzalez-Lara, 43, of Phoenix, admitted that she conspired to transport and harbor over 100 illegal aliens for profit during a proceeding before the U.S. Magistrate Judge.

On Jan. 12, law enforcement agents located 20 undocumented people, all nationals of Mexico or Guatemala, inside a residence located at 1905 North 119th Drive in Avondale, Arizona. Over the course of the conspiracy, the house was used to conceal large numbers of foreign nationals who had been smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border and transported to the Phoenix area. Special agents with HSI and U.S. Border Patrol made the arrests.

Co-conspirator Sergio Vazquez-Flores, 46, of Goodyear, Arizona, pleaded guilty to conspiring to transport and harbor over 100 illegal aliens for profit on Nov. 5. Vazquez-Flores operated the stash house at the Avondale address on behalf of Gonzalez-Lara.

A conviction for Conspiracy to Transport and Harbor Illegal Aliens for Profit carries a maximum penalty of ten years, a maximum fine of $250,000, or both.

Sentencing for Vazquez-Flores is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2022, and for Gonzalez-Lara on Feb. 1, 2022.

This case resulted from the efforts of the Joint Task Force Alpha (JTFA), which was established by Attorney General Merrick B. Garland in June to marshal the investigative and prosecutorial resources of the Department of Justice, in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), to enhance U.S. enforcement efforts against the most prolific and dangerous human smuggling and trafficking groups operating in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

The Task Force focuses on disrupting and dismantling smuggling and trafficking networks that abuse, exploit, or endanger migrants, pose national security threats, and are involved in organized crime. JTFA consists of federal prosecutors and attorneys from U.S. Attorney’s Offices along the Southwest Border (District of Arizona, Southern District of California, Southern District of Texas, and Western District of Texas), from the Criminal Division and the Civil Rights Division, along with law enforcement agents and analysts from DHS. The FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration are also part of the Task Force.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Arizona, Tucson, handled the prosecution.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI REPORT: Announces that twenty-three military veterans have graduated from the eleventh class of the HERO corps internship program. The program recruits, trains, and hires wounded, ill, or injured transitioning active-duty service members and military veterans for employment as computer forensic analysts #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.17: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) This program allows veterans to serve their country on a new battlefield – the fight against child predators,” said ICE Acting Deputy Director Patrick J. Lechleitner. “

#AceDailyNews IC/HSI REPORT: Military veterans train with HSI to become ‘HEROs’ in battle against child predators with newly announces HERO Corps Working with HSI special agents, the HEROs assist with investigations, and help rescue child sexual assault victims – there are few more noble efforts for those who have dedicated their lives in service to this country and who want to continue to do so.”…..

The analysts support HSI field offices in the areas of child exploitation investigation, child victim identification, traveling child sex offenders, and digital forensics. The 2021 HERO class graduates recently completed an initial 13 weeks of HSI and computer forensics training. Following graduation, they will continue the one-year internship with nine months of hands-on training at HSI field offices across the country.

This is the 11th class to graduate since 2013, and the first since the pandemic, with veterans from the U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. Initially begun as a pilot initiative in 2013, the Human Exploitation Rescue Operative, or HERO Corps, program has trained more than 160 veterans in computer forensics and law enforcement support of child sexual exploitation investigations.

As forensics experts in an HSI office, daily activities of the HERO interns include disassembling suspect computers, imaging hard drives, running forensic software to carve and index data, and preparing that data for analysis by investigative agents.

While participating in the year-long internship, the HERO interns gain valuable and highly marketable job skills and certifications in computer forensics. Approximately 90 percent of those who have completed the HERO internship have been offered jobs with HSI field offices. To date, more than 80 percent of HERO program graduates are still working with HSI as computer forensic analysts.

The HERO Act, signed into law by President Obama on May 29, 2015, formalized and endorsed the HERO Corps program within ICE, administered by the HSI Cyber Crimes Center. Congress strengthened the HERO Program through passage of the Abolish Human Trafficking Act of 2017, which improved the HERO program by making it a DHS agency-wide program, ensuring that the program is open to all branches of service members and providing pay for HERO interns.

The HERO Corps program is supported by numerous partners including the Department of Defense (DOD) warrior transition programs, Veteran Administration programs, and federal and state veteran employment agencies.

HSI is the principal investigative arm of Department of Homeland Security and a vital U.S. asset in combatting transnational crime and threats. HSI is recognized as a global leader in this investigative discipline, and is committed to utilizing its vast authorities, international footprint and strong government and non-government partnerships to identify and rescue child victims, identify and apprehend offenders, prevent transnational child sexual abuse, and help make the internet a safer place for children.

(ALPINE, Tx.) ICE/HSI REPORT: NM man arrested for transporting over 60 noncitizens (illegals) including four children, in box truck #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.16: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents arrested a Las Cruces, New Mexico, man Tuesday in Brewster (Texas) County on federal criminal charges related to his alleged involvement in human smuggling.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: According to documents, Javier Duarte, 22, was driving a box truck through the Highway 118 checkpoint where U.S. Border Patrol agents referred him to secondary inspection….

Agents discovered 67 people concealed in the truck. Four of them were minors, ranging from 8 to 13 years old: In addition, three of the adults were found to have prior aggravated felonies to include rape, possession with intent to distribute drugs and crimes involving moral turpitude.

“That unscrupulous smugglers put lives in danger to support their criminal activity is reprehensible,” said Taekuk Cho, acting special agent in charge for HSI El Paso. “Homeland Security Investigations continues to collaborate with our law enforcement partners to prevent Transnational Criminal Organizations from putting greed and profit before human life as well as national security.”

Duarte is charged by criminal complaint with one count of transportation of noncitizens and one count of aiding or assisting noncitizens to enter the United States who were previously convicted of an aggravated felony. If convicted, Duarte faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison on both counts. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

(TUCSON, Ariz.) Justice Dept Court Report: Two indictments were unsealed that charge high-ranking members of the Sinaloa Cartel with international drug trafficking #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.06: Following an investigations lead by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) ……….The indictments allege various violations of United States law occurring over several years related to the international distribution of controlled substances, including fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: On Nov.13, 2019, and Feb. 19, 2020, a federal grand jury in Tucson returned superseding indictments against cartel members Aureliano Guzman-Loera of Sinaloa, Mexico, and brothers Ruperto, Jose, and Heriberto Salgueiro-Nevarez, of Guadalupe Y Calvo, Mexico.

The Salgueiro-Nevarez brothers allegedly operate a faction of the Sinaloa Cartel known as the SNO, which stands for the Salgueiro-Nevarez Organization. Aureliano Guzman-Loera is the brother of former Sinaloa Cartel leader, Joaquin Guzman-Loera, “El Chapo”.

An indictment is simply a method by which a person is charged with criminal activity and raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent until evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) assisted HSI in the SNO investigation. The United States Attorney’s Office, District of Arizona, Tucson, is handling the prosecutions.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI REPORT: First-ever extraterritorial child exploitation case in the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo and arrest of a citizen in N.J for alleged rape #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.17: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) assisted in the arrest of a 44-year-old Brazilian national by Brazilian authorities on Sept. 10. The suspect was under investigation by HSI Newark for possession and distribution of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM), and concurrently by the Newark Police Department and Essex County Prosecutor’s Office for the alleged rape of an 8-year-old and a 12-year-old in New Jersey in June 2021.

#AceDailyNews reports on an NCMEC ICE/HSI Joint US-Brazil investigation leads to arrest of Brazilian national for alleged rape of 2 children in New Jersey after an arrest warrant was issued by New Jersey authorities shortly after the alleged rapes took place……

However, the Brazilian national had already fled the United States for Brazil by crossing into Mexico on foot and requesting an emergency travel document from the Brazilian embassy in Mexico: A Brazilian national cannot be extradited under the Brazilian Constitution, indicating the suspect fled to avoid arrest and prosecution by American authorities.

In August 2021, HSI began collaboration with the Federal Police of Brazil and the Civil Police of Espirito Santo Specialized Unit for the Protection of Minors, in the investigation and potential prosecution for violations of Brazilian Penal Code (CPB) 217-A, Rape of a Minor and 241-A/B, Possession and Distribution of CSAM. These violations fall under the premises of CPB Article 7, which allows criminal prosecution against Brazilian citizens for heinous crimes committed abroad. Along with the arrest, Brazilian authorities have requested all U.S.-generated reports and forensic evidence for use in Brazilian courts via the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty.

“This is a prime example of our strong partnership between the United States and Brazil,” said HSI Assistant Director of International Operations Patrick McElwain. “We all have the same goal, and that is to keep our communities and countries safe from criminals and criminal organizations, especially when crimes are committed against our children.”

“This case shows the continued dedication of our local, state, federal and international law enforcement partnerships working together around the globe to take a predator off the streets,” said Jason J. Molina, Special Agent in Charge, HSI Newark.

One of HSI’s top priorities is to protect the public from crimes of victimization, and HSI’s child exploitation investigations program is a central component of this mission. HSI is recognized as a global leader in this investigative discipline, and is committed to utilizing its vast authorities, international footprint and strong government and non-government partnerships to identify and rescue child victims, identify and apprehend offenders, prevent transnational child sexual abuse, and help make the internet a safer place for children.

HSI takes a victim-centered approach to child exploitation investigations by working to identify, rescue and stabilize victims. HSI works in partnership with NCMEC, ICAC partners, and other federal, state, and local agencies to help solve cases and rescue sexually exploited children. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to NCMEC’s toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST. HSI is a founding member of the Virtual Global Taskforce, an international alliance of law enforcement agencies and private industry sector partners working together to prevent and deter online child sexual abuse.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move.

HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI Announces ‘rewards’ for information leading to ‘capture,arrest & conviction of Pakistani Migrant Smuggler who facilitates human smuggling network #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.16: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) announces two rewards for information on Pakistani national and human smuggler Abid Ali Khan (Khan). A reward of up to $1 million is offered for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of Khan and a second $1 million reward is offered for information leading to the financial disruption of Khan’s human smuggling network.

#AceDailyNews reports that the ‘Department of State’ offers 2 $1M rewards for information leading to arrest, conviction or financial disruption of Pakistani human smuggler:

Khan allegedly operates a Pakistani-based smuggling network to facilitate the travel of undocumented individuals into the United States from the Middle East and southwest Asia in exchange for payment. In addition to the planning or operations of the illegal and dangerous travel, Khan also provides false documentation to foreign nationals to use for cross-border travel.

Smuggling organizations are both a national security threat and a public safety risk. They take advantage of vulnerable populations and jeopardize their lives through violence, abuse, hostage-taking, or extortion. Human smuggling is a gateway crime for additional criminal offenses, including illegal immigration, identity theft, document and benefit fraud, gang activity, financial fraud, and terrorism. To mitigate this threat, HSI strives to identify, disrupt, and dismantle transnational criminal human smuggling networks operating around the globe.

“Abid Ali Khan is alleged to be a prolific human smuggler who commands a criminal organization that spans the globe. Khan is a very dangerous individual whose activities and associations may pose a national security risk to the United States and our partner nations,” said Anthony Salisbury Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security Investigations, Miami. “Khan is willing to smuggle individuals by any means necessary which can ultimately place vulnerable migrants in harm’s way. Through our strong domestic and international partnerships, I know we will be able to arrest this individual and stop his illicit activities that facilitate the movement of nefarious actors around the world.”

On April 7, 2021, the Department of Justice unsealed a federal indictment against Khan filed in the Eastern District of Virginia. The indictment charges Khan with Conspiracy to Encourage and Induce an Alien to Unlawfully Enter the United States, Encouraging and Inducing an Alien to Unlawfully Enter the United States, and Bringing an Alien to the United States. On the same date, the Department of the Treasury levied sanctions against Khan pursuant to Executive Order 13581 “Blocking Property of Transnational Criminal Organizations,” stemming from the same criminal conduct.

This reward is offered under the Department of State’s (DOS) Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program (TOCRP). More than 75 transnational criminals and major narcotics traffickers have been brought to justice under the TOCRP and the Narcotics Rewards Program (NRP) since 1986. DOS has paid more than $135 million in rewards to date.

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs manages the TOCRP in close coordination with HSI, the Drug Enforcement Administration the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and other U.S. government agencies.

For more information on the individual listed above and the TOCRP and NRP, please see DOS INL Anti-Crime Rewards Program.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move.

HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/ERO AIR OPERATIONS REPORT: On Wednesday officers removed a Rwandan national wanted for genocide in his home country #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews reports that ICE removes Rwandan citizen wanted for genocide, war crimes: On Nov. 3, 2007, Rukemuye was convicted of genocide in absentia in a local Rwandan gacaca court. On Sept. 18, 2008, the Government of Rwanda issued an indictment and arrest warrant for him, charging him with genocide, murder, extermination, leadership, and participation in a criminal gang: The investigation was supported by the Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center.

Rukemuye is a citizen of Rwanda who was admitted to the U.S. in 1996. Evidence indicating that Rukemuye obscured his role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide led ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Cincinnati to open an investigation. Non-governmental organizations also identified Rukemuye as the head of the National Republican Movement for Development (MRND) in the Gisozi sector, where he issued orders to murder Hutu politicians and men, women, and children identified as being from the Tutsi ethnic group. Special agents traveled to Rwanda and interviewed more than a dozen individuals who identified Rukemuye as a leader in the local group that carried out much of the genocide, including directing the murder of Tutsis at the St. Famille church where thousands of people were killed.

Following a lengthy investigation, HSI Cincinnati special agents served Rukemuye with a notice to appear in June 2019, initiating removal proceedings against him. The Detroit Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (Cleveland) litigated the removal case with support from the Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center. Witnesses who testified on behalf of the government included a government investigator, a forensic interviewer from HSI’s Victim Assistance Program, and an expert on the Rwandan genocide and the local Rwandan gacaca courts….

On May 27,2020, an Immigration Judge denied Rukemuye all immigration relief and ordered him removed to Rwanda. On July 21,2021, the Board of Immigration Appeals issued a decision dismissing his appeal and paving the way for his removal.

Established in 2009, ICE’s Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center furthers ICE’s efforts to identify, locate and prosecute human rights abusers in the United States, including those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings, female genital mutilation and the use or recruitment of child soldiers. The HRVWCC leverages the expertise of a select group of agents, lawyers, intelligence and research specialists, historians and analysts who direct the agency’s broader enforcement efforts against these offenders.

Since 2003, ICE has arrested more than 468 individuals for human rights-related violations of the law under various criminal and/or immigration statutes. During that same period, ICE obtained deportation orders and/or physically removed from the United States 1,070 known or suspected human rights violators. Additionally, ICE has facilitated the departure of an additional 174 such individuals from the United States.

Currently, ICE has more than 170 active investigations into suspected human rights violators and is pursuing more than 1,700 leads and removal cases involving suspected human rights violators from 95 different countries. Since 2003, the HRVWCC has issued more than 77,000 lookouts for individuals from more than 110 countries and stopped over 340 human rights violators and war crimes suspects from entering the U.S.

ICE offers several ways to request assistance:
