Jamaicans, Dominican Republicans, Guyanese and a Trinidadian among those recently arrested in an ICE sweep in New York.
Nine Caribbean immigrants were among 55 nabbed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s, (ICE) agents recently.
ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations, (ERO), agents grabbed five Jamaicans as well as two nationals from the Dominican Republic, one Guyanese and one Trinidadian in a deportation sweep in New York.
Among those arrested was Cedric Marston, 41, a previously removed Jamaican citizen who was arrested by ERO deportation officers in Jamaica, New York, on immigration violations.
Previously deported, now rearrested
Marston was previously removed to Jamaica by the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service in March 26, 1999, following a California felony conviction for possession of concentrated cannabis, for which he was sentenced to three years of probation. But he re-entered the US illegally. Marston is currently detained in ICE custody and could face up to 20 years in jail as a previously deported felony and subsequent deportation to Jamaica.
Also nabbed was Dane John, 35, a Guyanese citizen, who has an extensive criminal history, with prior convictions for kidnapping, possession of a weapon and assault. He is currently detained in ICE custody pending deportation to Guyana.
