US deports convicted child sex predator back to El Salvador

A convicted child sexual predator in Washington state has been sent back to his native El Salvador, US immigration officials said.

Daniel Alfonso-Lemus, 43, was sentenced to 41 months to life in prison after being convicted in 2015 of first-degree child molestation and being a fugitive. He was then transferred to the Washington Department of Corrections to serve his sentence, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in Seattle said Friday.

ICE agents tasked with enforcement operations then encountered Alfonso-Lemus while incarcerated in Washington state in October 2015 and filed an immigration detainer with jail staffers, ICE officials said.

Alfonso-Lemus was later released from state custody in October and was housed at ICE’s Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. An immigration judge earlier this month then ordered him to be deported from the US on Jan. 5.

“Thanks to the coordinated efforts between the Washington DOC and [ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations], custody of Alfonso-Lemus was transferred directly to ICE, preventing this violent criminal alien from being released back into the community,” ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Seattle Field Office Director Nathalie Asher said in a statement.

The El Salvador native took an ICE charter flight back to El Salvador, where he was transferred into the custody of authorities there, US immigration officials said.
