Deported Gangster Caught Trying to Cross Border — Again

( – A repeatedly convicted gangster from Honduras was captured at the Canadian border after he’d been deported from the U.S. multiple times according to immigration officials working with ICE.

A press release from ICE states that the man had been deported six times beginning in January 2006. It highlighted that his other attempts occurred in June 2013 (two times), February 2015, July 2015, and February 2016. He carries convictions in the U.S. for DWI, assault charges, illegal use of a vehicle, disorderly conduct, criminal entry, and trafficking drugs.

The man has previously admitted an affiliation with the Sicarios New Yorkers-VX-18, a criminal organization akin to a mafia or gang.

He was also convicted in a Honduran court for drug trafficking and still has a penalty of 4.5 years to serve in his home country. He failed to appear in July 2023 for sentencing and a warrant was issued for his arrest as a consequence.

The man was arrested on February 1, 2024, after unlawfully entering the U.S. near Newport, Vermont, and attempting to circumvent scrutiny at the border. Border officials transferred him to ERO Boston which issued yet another deportation warrant. He’s currently being held by ICE until arrangements to ship him back to Honduras are complete.

ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons called him a “significant threat” to citizens and residents of New England. He highlighted how the man has multiple criminal convictions in both Honduras and the U.S. suggesting he was attempting to evade justice by coming to New England. Lyons said that ERO Boston will not tolerate criminals attempting to escape to his jurisdiction and all such individuals will be “aggressively” pursued.

The case highlights how criminals with no regard for the law can repeatedly enter the U.S. despite deportation, many of whom have extensive links to international criminal organizations.

The 18th Street Gang, the organization this individual is affiliated with, is a direct rival to the infamous MS13 gang based out of El Salvador.
