ICE press release dated 12/02/19:
“NEW YORK — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers arrested Feliciano Perez-Bautista, 32, on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Perez-Bautista, a twice removed Mexican national who has pending manslaughter and gang assault charges, was released from local law enforcement custody with an active detainer due to Westchester County’s Immigrant Protection Act.
“When law enforcement agencies decide to not honor ICE detainers and release violent criminals back onto the streets, they are putting their city at serious risk,” said ICE New York Field Office Director Thomas Decker.
“We want nothing more than to cooperate and work together with local law enforcement authorities in order to protect our communities and keep this nation secure. Unfortunately, more and more we are seeing politicians place their own political agenda above the safety of the citizens in which they serve. This leaves local law enforcement agencies handcuffed by these reckless policies which give them no choice but to release criminals, like this unlawfully present Mexican national charged with manslaughter, back onto the streets to further terrorize the community.”
On July 8, 2019, Perez-Bautista was arrested by the Yonkers Police Department (YPD) for the charge of gang assault 1st degree: cause serious physical injury. After the victim succumbed to his injuries, Perez-Bautista was additionally charged with manslaughter 1st: with intent to cause serious physical injury. On July 12, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the YPD. On July 30, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the Westchester Department of Corrections. Neither detainer was not honored, and Perez-Bautista was later released, without notification to ICE.
On Nov. 26, ERO deportation officers assigned to ERO-New York’s Newburgh Sub-Office arrested Perez-Bautista, who was previously removed by ICE in May 2013 and September 2014, in White Plains, New York. He is currently detained in ICE custody pending a removal to Mexico.”
