U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), New Jersey’s Newark Fugitive Operations team officers found and arrested one of the most wanted fugitives today.
The 37-year-old Mexican citizen, Javier Atlixqueno-Vaquero was captured on Tuesday night after ERO identified him. The felon was previously convicted of crimes including sexual assault on a minor, narcotic /hallucinogen sales, and failure to appear in court.

Atlixqueno was removed from the U.S. on May 7, 2004 and sent to Mexico. The felon unlawfully entered the U.S. between May 19, 2004 and last Tuesday. He had recently been added to the most wanted list from ERO.
John Tsoukaris, the Field Office Director for ERO said,
“Protecting national security, public safety and our borders by identifying and removing dangerous criminal fugitives from our communities is the top priority of our fugitive operations teams.”

In addition, Tsoukaris added, “A convicted felon and one of our most wanted fugitives; Mr. Atlixqueno-Vaquero is a threat no more and is in custody awaiting removal from the United States. I commend the hard work and dedication of our officers.”
Since 2009, ERO has eradicated over 1,700 foreign fugitives from America. Some of the crimes included kidnapping, rape, and murder. ERO works with Homeland Security and an array of other organization to keep America safe.
Thanks to the vetting programs from the new administration, it’s likely that more and more of these fugitives will be captured in the near future.
