 ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – A Mexican citizen wanted on a murder charge in his home country was removed from the United States on Sept. 12.

He was removed by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

According to ICE, they transported Reynaldo Reyes-Alejandro, 26, from Alexandria to Harlingen, Texas. From there, ERO officers escorted him to the border where he was transferred to Mexican law enforcement custody.

Reyes-Alejandro was said to be taken into custody Aug. 29 following his release from federal prison. A release from ICE stated that he served six months in federal prison for illegally re-entering the United States in February. He was previously removed in March 2012, June 2011 and March 2010.

"Violent criminals and egregious immigration violators are among the highest priorities for ICE enforcement. ICE will continue to focus its resources on identifying, arresting and removing individuals who pose the greatest risk to our communities," said Trey Lund, field office director for ERO New Orleans.

Since Oct. 1, 2009, ERO has removed more than 646 foreign fugitives from the United States who were being sought in their native countries for serious crimes including: kidnapping, rape and murder.
