SAN ANTONIO — The four Texas field offices within U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) have deported more than 1,600 sex offenders this fiscal year.

Of the 1,643 aliens removed so far this fiscal year by the Texas-based offices, about 33 percent were convicted of sex offenses against children.

ICE’s four Texas field offices are located in Dallas, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio. ICE officers routinely apprehend removable convicted sex offenders during targeted enforcement operations, or they are turned over to ICE custody when local/state jails or prisons release after they serve their prison sentences. Additionally, ICE and the Texas Department of Public Safety have begun to regularly share information on sex offenders. This partnership allows ICE to cross-reference the list of sex offenders provided from the state to determine if they are removable aliens.
