INM deports illegal immigrant wanted by U.S. authorities

Mexico City, Mexico — A Salvador man has been deported from Mexico after failing to prove his legal stay in the country. Melvin “N” was located in a Mexico City checkpoint earlier in the week.

When he failed to produce his legal papers to be in Mexico, authorities ran his identification and found he was also a fugitive on the run from American authorities.

According to a statement from the National Institute of Migration (INM), Melvin “N”, alias “BigFoot”, had an outstanding arrest warrant. He was classified by American authorities as a violent person and a likely member of a criminal organization.

Semar, INM, SSC-CDMX and the State of Mexico Prosecutor’s Office participated in his arrest and subsequent deportation to the United States. He was escorted to the Mexico City International Airport by INM officers and handed over to FBI agents who escorted him back to Florida where he will face charges.
