CUBAN SPY’S FINAL ORDER OF REMOVAL UPHELD

MIAMI, FLORIDA — This past week the Board of Immigration Appeals upheld the final order of removal of Juan Emilio Aboy, who was linked to a Cuban spy network. An Immigration Judge revoked Aboy’s lawful permanent residency status in December 2002.

After considering all of the evidence in the record, the court found that Aboy had knowledge and training in espionage and had failed to register as a foreign agent with the Attorney General. He was found removable under Section 237 (a) (4) (A) (i) of the Act. The court also found that Aboy failed to disclose his foreign military service and his membership in Cuba’s Communist Party on his application for adjustment of status. He was found removable under Section 237 (a) (1) (A) based on 212 (a) (6) (C) (i) of the Act for obtaining his lawful permanent residence through fraud or willful misrepresentation.

Jesus Torres, ICE’s Special Agent-in-Charge said: "Let this be a warning. Those individuals who fail to reveal their true past will experience the full weight of the law, especially those who have been trained in espionage and have been agents of a foreign government."

Special agents of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the FBI arrested Aboy in May 2002 during a special operations effort. Aboy is in ICE custody at the Krome Detention Center awaiting removal from the country.

ICE



The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the primary investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security, was established to bring a unified focus to the enforcement of U.S. immigration and customs laws, with the principal goal of preventing violations by terrorists and other criminals who threaten the nation's security.
