ICE Confirms Jordanian Who Tried to Enter Marine Corps Base Entered U.S. Illegally Through Southern Border

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed in a statement to American media on Thursday, May 23, that one of the two Jordanian nationals who tried to sneak onto a Marine Corps base in Virginia this month, referred to as “noncitizen 2”, had entered the U.S. illegally less than a month prior.

On April 8, 2024, the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) arrested Jordanian noncitizen 2 near San Ysidro, California, following his unlawful entry into the United States. On April 9, 2024, the USBP issued Jordanian noncitizen 2 a Notice to Appear before a Department of Justice (DOJ) immigration judge.

Later that day, USBP released the Jordanian noncitizen on an Order of Recognizance. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) said that the other Jordanian national, referred to as “noncitizen 1,” had entered on a student visa on September 11, 2022, on a F-1 nonimmigrant student visa, but that his “Student and Exchange Visitor Information System record was set to ‘terminated’” on January 14, 2023.

ERO said: On May 3, 2024, the Quantico Marine Corps Base in Quantico, VA arrested the Jordanian noncitizens for trespassing. On the same date, ERO Washington responded to the Quantico Marine Corps Base and interviewed the noncitizens. ERO Washington arrested both noncitizens after confirming their immigration status.

“ICE has no information that would suggest either noncitizen is associated with any organization that would pose a public safety or national security threat,” the statement said. (BB / VFI News)
