As U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continues its criminal illegal immigrants’ crackdown, seven fugitives from Central America or Mexico have been added to the agency’s most wanted list.
ICE has several most wanted lists featuring deportation targets, suspected terrorists and significant criminals and human traffickers. The latest list, created by the office of ICE’s VOICE (Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement), consists of men accused of vehicular manslaughter in the US.
The VOICE was created in 2017 by President Trump with the aim of helping victims, as well as their families, of crimes committed by illegal immigrants.
The men added to the lists include four Mexicans, two Honduras and one Guatemalan – Saul Chavez, Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez, Jesus Maltos-Chacon and Alan Jacob Mogollon-Anaya (Mexicans), Esteban Juarez-Tomas (Guatemalan), Edwin Mejia and Luis Alberto Rodriguez-Castro (Hondurans).
In 2011, 66-year-old William Dennis McCann was killed by Saul Chavez in Cook County, Illinois leading to a vehicular homicide charge. Chavez was released despite a detainer and has since managed to evade authorities, ICE said.
Juarez-Tomas, with three previous deportations, killed 45-year-old LaDonna ‘Jeannie’ Brady in Illinois in 2017 and was charged with reckless homicide, ICE stated.
Maltos-Chacon was also charged with homicide, as well as vehicular manslaughter. Mogollon-Anaya also had aggravated vehicular homicide charges after killing 37-year-old Shirra Branum following an auto crash.
Mejia, who entered the US in 2013 as an unaccompanied minor, was charged with vehicular homicide following the death of 21-year-old Sarah Root in 2016 and was given deportation according to ICE. The other two men are accused of homicide in different parts of the US.
