    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Boston arrested a 40-year-old illegally present fugitive being sought by law enforcement authorities in Brazil for the statutory rape of a minor.

    Deportation officers from ERO Boston apprehended the Brazilian national on February 14, 2024, near his residence in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

    “In addition to violating our immigration laws, this unlawfully present fugitive is wanted for the rape of a minor in his home country,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons. “Such individuals present a danger to the safety of the residents in our New England communities. ERO Boston remains dedicated to apprehending, arresting and removing any such threat to our neighborhoods.”

    The Brazilian man entered the U.S. as a tourist in March 2022, and stayed for more than a year beyond the legally authorized time period.

    He has been wanted by a criminal court in Parana, Brazil, since June 2022 for statutory rape, which is defined under Brazilian law as consensual sexual contact with a person under age 14.

    The man will remain in ICE custody pending removal proceedings.

    In fiscal year 2023, ERO made 170,590 administrative arrests, a 19.5% increase over the previous year.
