Unity construction workers face immigration charges
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) processed and released both Erick and Rolando Tinajero, of Mexico, on their own recognizance after issuing each with a notice to appear before an immigration judge. ICE will continue to actively manage the Tinajoro cases until an immigration judge issues a ruling,” Daniel Modricker, public affairs officer for ICE in New England, said in an email Friday. “All decisions regarding the level of supervision required for individuals in removal proceedings are made on a case by case basis. ICE remains committed to sensible, effective immigration enforcement that focuses on its priorities, including convicted criminals and other public safety threats.”
The two workers were arrested in Washington on July 3, when their vehicle was stopped for an inspection sticker violation.
The brothers, who work for a subcontractor working at the construction site for a new school, were back at the job site July 7, according to SAU 6 superintendent Middleton McGoodwin.
Because of the recent arrest, the Unity work site has been flagged and an inspector will be sent to the site, she said.
