San Diego, California - Last month on December 23, officers from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) extradited Alejandro Ornelas-Cortes, 37, to Mexico. Ornelas-Cortes was turned over to Mexican federal agents from the Mexican Attorney General's Office (PGR) at the San Ysidro border.
Ornelas-Cortes is wanted in Guanajuato, Mexico for the alleged June 18, 2005 homicide of Salvador Menchaca Castro. Castro was shot several times after an altercation with Ornelas-Cortes at a wedding reception, according to the PGR. He fled to the U.S. to avoid prosecution.
Ornelas-Cortes was arrested in October 27, 2010 outside his residence in San Jose by ICE. An immigration judge ordered his removal from the U.S. on December 12, ICE reported in a news release.
