    Illegal immigrant arrests in South quadruple

    Immigration agents in the southeast who specialize in tracking fugitives arrested four times the number of illegal immigrants in the 2007 reporting year as they did last year.

    That puts their Georgia/North Carolina territory third out of 24 teams in the nation that focus on fugitives, behind only Los Angeles and Miami, according to federal agents.

    "Our teams have become increasingly better at identifying people who not only broke our immigration laws, but who may be a threat to our communities," Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Richard Rocha said.

    Four teams of ICE officers ""¯ two in Atlanta and one each in Raleigh and Charlotte ""¯ arrested 2,295 people in the 12 months leading up to Oct. 2007, up from 525 in the previous 12 months.

    Of that number, 1,031 illegal immigrants had ignored a judge's order to leave the country and were fugitives; an additional 123 were both fugitives and criminals; 574 were criminals without deportation orders; and 567 were simply illegal immigrants caught when agents arrested the others.

    Among those arrested in metro Atlanta were:

    "¢Rory Amoy Sinclair, 27, of Jamaica, convicted by the Superior Court of Fulton County for sexual battery of a minor, possession of marijuana, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to ICE.

    "¢Daniel Mena-Mateo, 60, of the Dominican Republic, convicted of possession of narcotics and conspiracy to distribute cocaine in addition to an arrest for counterfeiting, according to ICE.

    "¢Andre Appolon, 40, of Haiti, convicted for possession of a controlled substance and trafficking cocaine, according to ICE.

    ICE established its fugitive teams in 2003 to eliminate the nation's backlog of immigration fugitives and ensure that deportation orders handed down by judges are enforced.

    The fugitive teams arrested more than 30,400 people nationwide in the 12 months leading to Oct. 2007, nearly double the 15,400 arrests from the previous 12-month period.

    This year, the nation's fugitive immigrant population declined.

    There are now about 595,000 illegal immigrants who have defied judges' orders to leave the United States "”a decrease of approximately 38,000 since October 2006, according to ICE
