ERO Boston removes Dominican fugitive from US

BOSTON — Enforcement and Removal Operations Boston removed a 28-year-old unlawfully present Dominican noncitizen who is wanted by authorities in his home country for homicide charges. Deportation officers from ERO Boston removed Frank Maiky Baez-Guerrero May 14 from the United States to the Dominican Republic.

“Frank Maiky Baez-Guerrero attempted to subvert justice in his native country by hiding out in the United States,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons. “He posed a significant threat to residents of our Massachusetts communities, and now he has been handed over to Dominican authorities to face homicide charges. ERO Boston will continue to aggressively arrest and remove the most egregious noncitizen offenders.”

Baez-Guerrero unlawfully entered the United States at an unknown location, on an unknown date and without being admitted, inspected or paroled by a U.S. immigration official.

Police arrested Baez-Guerrero Dec. 10, 2021, and charged him with possession to distribute Class A (heroin), in Newburyport. The charge remains pending.

Deportation officers from ERO Boston arrested Baez-Guerrero March 21, 2024, near his residence in Saugus. The officers issued Baez-Guerrero a notice to appear before a Department of Justice immigration judge and took him into custody.

On April 15, the DOJ immigration judge ordered Baez-Guerrero removed from the United States to the Dominican Republic.

ERO Boston removed him to the Dominican Republic June 10 and handed him over to Dominican authorities.

ERO conducts removals of individuals without a lawful basis to remain in the United States, including at the order of immigration judges with Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review. The Executive Office for Immigration Review is a separate entity from the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Immigration judges in these courts make decisions based on the merits of each individual case, determining if a noncitizen is subject to a final order of removal or eligible for certain forms of relief from removal.

As one of ICE’s three operational directorates, ERO is the principal federal law enforcement authority in charge of domestic immigration enforcement. ERO’s mission is to protect the homeland through the arrest and removal of those who undermine the safety of U.S. communities and the integrity of U.S. immigration laws, and its primary areas of focus are interior enforcement operations, management of the agency’s detained and non-detained populations, and repatriation of noncitizens who have received final orders of removal. ERO’s workforce consists of more than 7,700 law enforcement and non-law enforcement support personnel across 25 domestic field offices and 208 locations nationwide, 30 overseas postings, and multiple temporary duty travel assignments along the border.

Members of the public with information regarding child sex offenders can report crimes or suspicious activity by dialing the ICE Tip Line at 866-DHS-2-ICE (866-347-2423) or completing the online tip form.
