EEUU entrega a El Salvador a uno de los 100 más buscados / Foreign fugitive on 100 Most Wanted list by El Salvador Police, removed to El Salvador

SAN SALVADOR (AP) — Las autoridades migratorias de los Estados Unidos entregaron el viernes a El Salvador a uno de los 100 criminales más buscados por el país centroamericano, un presunto miembro de la pandilla Mara Salvatruca, para ser juzgado por los delitos de homicidio y pertenencia a organizaciones terroristas, informó la embajada estadounidense en El Salvador.

Erick Salvador Hernández Bonilla, de 24 años, que era buscado por la Interpol y que ingresó ilegalmente a los Estados Unidos en fecha desconocida, fue capturado en septiembre de 2021 por la policía de Beaufort, en Carolina del Sur. Quedó bajo custodia de agentes del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE por sus siglas en inglés).

Un juez de inmigración de la Oficina Ejecutiva de Revisión de Inmigración (EOIR por sus siglas en inglés), del Departamento de Justicia, ordenó la expulsión de Hernández Bonilla a El Salvador el 29 de abril de 2022.

Hernandez Bonilla, a quien se le relaciona con la pandilla Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), será procesado en El Salvador por homicidio, feminicidio y organizaciones terroristas, según consta en la lista de los 100 más buscados.

“Gracias a nuestra cooperación (con El Salvador) en este año hemos traído a 34 fugitivos a enfrentar los cargos por sus crímenes cometidos en este país”, dijo Dueholm en su cuenta de Twitter.

A su vez, Washington ha solicitado a El Salvador la extradición inmediata de al menos 14 cabecillas de la Mara Salvatrucha para procesarlos por delitos cometidos en ese país.

En 2012, el gobierno estadounidense incluyó a la Mara Salvatrucha, en una lista de organizaciones criminales internacionales, y tres años después la Corte Suprema de Justicia de El Salvador la declaró terrorista junto a la pandilla Barrio 18.

La política de mano dura de El Salvador se acentuó después de que el 26 de marzo se reportaron 62 homicidios en un día. El Congreso salvadoreño, a pedido del presidente Nayib Bukele, aprobó un estado de excepción para combatir a las pandillas que suspende los derechos básicos de los detenidos como el de conocer los cargos o el acceso a un abogado.

Desde su aplicación, las autoridades dicen que han capturado a más de 58.000 personas a las que acusan de pertenecer o ser colaboradores de las pandillas. Organizaciones sociales han informado que han logrado documentar más de 4.000 casos de violaciones a los derechos humanos durante los primeros siete meses de vigencia de la medida. Afirman tener informes que al menos 80 personas han muerto bajo custodia de las autoridades.

Las llamadas maras o pandillas, que se estima tienen unos 76.000 integrantes, tiene presencia en populosos barrios y comunidades de El Salvador. De acuerdo con las autoridades, esos grupos están involucrados en el narcotráfico y el crimen organizado, extorsionan a comerciantes y empresas del transporte asesinan a quienes se niegan a pagar, agregan.

Foreign fugitive on 100 Most Wanted list by El Salvador Police, removed to El Salvador

ATLANTA — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Atlanta, ERO El Salvador, and the El Salvador Security Alliance for Fugitive Enforcement (SAFE) removed an unlawfully present foreign fugitive on the El Salvador Police’s 100 Most Wanted list to El Salvador, Dec. 2.

Eric Hernandez Bonilla, a 24-year-old unlawfully present Salvadoran national, was flown from Alexandria, Louisiana, to the El Salvador International Airport. Upon arrival, he was turned over to the proper authorities.

Hernandez Bonilla illegally entered the U.S. on an unknown date and at an unknown location without inspection or parole. On Sept. 21, 2021, SAFE notified ERO Atlanta of Hernandez Bonilla’s active warrants for aggravated resisting arrest, conspiracy to commit homicide, and homicide.

ERO Atlanta arrested Hernandez Bonilla Sept. 23, 2021, in Beaufort, South Carolina during a targeted law enforcement action and took him into ICE custody. On April 29, an immigration judge within the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review ordered Hernandez Bonilla removed to El Salvador.

“The United States was not a safe haven for this dangerous foreign fugitive who thought he could hide in our communities,” said Sean Ervin, field office director of ERO Atlanta. “Our immigration officers are uniquely qualified to track down unlawfully present foreign fugitives and return them to their home countries so they can face justice.”
In 2012, ERO created the SAFE pilot program in concert with Salvadoran law enforcement authorities to better use subject information derived from local in-country investigative resources and leads to locate, apprehend, detain, and remove individuals residing in the U.S. illegally who were subject to foreign arrest warrants. SAFE El Salvador was so effective in enhancing intelligence leads and optimizing removal operations between the U.S. and El Salvador that the neighboring countries of Honduras and Guatemala also adopted the program.

SAFE is a fugitive enforcement and information sharing partnership that operates primarily out of the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras under the respective host nation’s assistant attaché for removal (AAR) and under the supervision of the regional deputy attaché for removal assigned in Guatemala City. To implement SAFE, a participating host nation’s AAR constructs a SAFE task force composed of relevant foreign law enforcement agencies, immigration authorities, attorneys general and national identification repositories — as well as other regional, national, state and local government agencies. The managing AAR ensures that each task force member complies with SAFE policies and standards consistent with the program’s standard operating procedures. Once established, the AAR-led SAFE task force generates new leads and vets existing SAFE fugitive referrals for ERO action.

ICE’s ERO directorate upholds U.S. immigration law at, within and beyond our borders. ERO operations target public safety threats, such as convicted criminal noncitizens and gang members, as well as individuals who have otherwise violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally reentered the country after being removed and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judges. ERO deportation officers assigned to Interpol also assist in targeting and apprehending foreign fugitives or fugitive arrest and removal cases who are wanted for crimes committed abroad and who are now at-large in the United States. ERO manages all aspects of the immigration enforcement process, including identification and arrest, detention, bond management, supervised release, transportation and removal. In addition, ERO repatriates noncitizens ordered removed from the U.S. to more than 170 countries around the world.

Members of the public who have information about foreign fugitives are urged to contact ICE by calling the ICE Tip Line at 866-DHS-2-ICE or internationally at 001-1802-872-6199. They can also file a tip online by completing ICE’s online tip form.
