U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said this week that an illegal alien was released back into the public after being arrested for alleged sexual crimes.

ICE said that they apprehended the 31-year-old Haitian national on January 9 after he was “recently arrested by local police on charges of rape and indecent assault and battery on a developmentally disabled person in Dorchester,” the agency said in a statement. “ERO Boston lodged an immigration detainer against the Haitian citizen, but the Dorchester District Court chose not to honor it and released him from jail after his arrest on the sexual assault-related charges.”

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin said that the suspect’s name was Pierre Lucard Emile, according to an ICE source.

“Source also provided a photo of him from federal database,” he wrote on X. “His name was not included in the ICE press release. He remains in ICE custody.”

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons said, “Disturbingly and despite our filing an immigration detainer, this individual was released back into the community by the criminal court.”

The suspect illegally entered the country at the port of entry in Brownsville, Texas, in December 2022, and was issued a notice to appear before an immigration judge, ICE said.


Following his arrest by Boston police in September 2023, “ERO Boston lodged an immigration detainer with the Dorchester District Court seeking his custody,” the agency said. “The court did not honor the immigration detainer, and the noncitizen was ultimately released from the jail in Boston, where he had been held since his arrest, with an electronic monitoring device Nov. 8, 2023, pending the resolution of his criminal charges in a local criminal court.”

“After becoming aware of his recent arrest and unlawful immigration status, ERO Boston began an investigation to confirm the Haitian citizen’s presence its area of responsibility,” ICE added. “Following confirmation of his presence, officers with ERO Boston arrested him without incident in Dorchester Jan. 9.”
