Clarification: ICE Did Provide Information Regarding Criminal History of Inmate Mendoza-Caballero to TCSO

It has been brought to the attention of TCSO that ICE did in fact send an email at 3:45 pm on June 16, 2017 that provided criminal history information about Julio Cesar Mendoza-Caballero. The message also requested that our decision to decline his ICE Detainer Request be re-considered.

Our agency deeply regrets that the message was missed due to a clerical error. We did not receive either a judicial warrant or an order of removal signed by a judge. Either of those documents would have guaranteed that Mendoza-Caballero’s ICE Detainer Request would have been honored.
