ICE and INTERPOL Announce Results from First-Ever Joint Operation in U.S. – FedAgent

Last month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton and INTERPOL Washington Director Timothy Williams announced “Operation FAR AWAY,” which is an operation designed to target, locate and arrest criminal aliens who are believed to be hiding in the United States and other Western hemisphere countries. Over the past month, the operation has been very successful, resulting in 20 arrests of international fugitives residing in the United States. Because of the success of the program, it has been extended until Oct. 31, 2010, said Jim Chaparro, ICE Executive Associate Director of the Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
