Massachusetts ICE arrests previously removed Brazilian national repeatedly charged with violent crimes



BOSTON — Enforcement and Removal Operations Boston arrested a previously removed, unlawfully present 39-year-old Brazilian national in Concord on Oct. 25. Local police have repeatedly charged the suspect with violent crimes.

The Brazilian national has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of assault and battery, home invasion, extortion, larceny, breaking and entering with the intent to commit a felony, malicious destruction of property, operating a vehicle after license suspension, two counts of uttering false documents, and two counts of a false statement on an application. These charges followed several arrests by local authorities in the towns of Leominster and Framingham, beginning in September 2005 and continuing through October 2023.

“Unlawfully present foreign citizens facing violent criminal charges are not welcome in our communities,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons. “They pose a direct threat to the public safety of our residents, and we will continue to seek and apprehend them. ERO Boston officers are serious about accomplishing our mission of protecting the safety of our communities throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the entire New England region. We will not relent in this mission.”

In April 2005, the Brazilian native unlawfully entered the United States through Hidalgo, Texas, and was issued a notice to appear at an immigration hearing. In May 2005, a Department of Justice immigration judge issued an order of removal in absentia for the Brazilian national.

ERO Boston issued an immigration detainer for the unlawfully present Brazilian in October 2010. He was arrested in December 2010 and removed from the United States to Brazil by ERO Boston in March 2011.

In September 2022, the Brazilian national unlawfully reentered the United States without authorization through Paso Del Norte, Texas. Massachusetts State Police arrested the Brazilian national Oct. 24, 2023, on prior outstanding criminal warrants for assault and battery and related charges. ERO Boston issued an immigration detainer with Massachusetts State Police for the Brazilian citizen and arrested him for immigration violations, including illegal reentry to the United States after prior deportation.

ERO Boston has reinstated his prior order of removal, and he will remain in ERO Boston custody pending removal from the United States.
