Cruz continues deportation efforts

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - It was earlier this month when Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz met with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Enforcement and Removal Operations Office in San Francisco. The meeting was part of Cruz's efforts to seek remedy for the growing and largely uncompensated costs of hosting non-immigrant residents from the Freely Associated States along with enforcing deportation laws.

And while ICE was unaware of the Compacts of Free Association deportation laws, Cruz has since met with the governor's chief policy advisor Arthur Clark on supporting his efforts in hopes the governor shares the same concerns. Cruz adds he has sent additional information to ice on the matter but says unfortunately he does not expect them to respond.

He even brought the matter up to a congressional delegation saying it is a critical part in the Pacific pivot.

Cruz says the next step is to wait for data from the Guam Homeless Coalition count taking place this Friday to use in a follow-up letter to ICE.
