Massachusetts ICE arrests wanted Irish citizen who is member of transnational criminal organization



BOSTON — Enforcement and Removal Operations Boston removed an unlawfully present Irish citizen identified as a member of a transnational criminal organization who is wanted for passport fraud, theft and multiple motor vehicle offenses in the Republic of Ireland on July 13.

According to ERO Boston, 31-year-old Patrick Connors was admitted into the United States in August 2021 and violated the terms of his admission when he failed to depart by November 2021. Law enforcement officials in Ireland and the United States identified Connors as a member of a transnational criminal organization called the Traveling Conmen Fraud Group.

“Fugitives from justice cannot avoid accountability for criminal behavior in their native country by hiding in our communities,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd Lyons. “ERO Boston takes our duty to enforce immigration law seriously. We will apprehend those wanted by foreign authorities for serious crimes, including fraud, who are unlawfully present in the U.S., and we will remove them to face justice for their crimes in their home country.”
