TWO Americans who were arrested in Pampanga early this month due to large-scale fraud cases that federal authorities have filed against them in Texas will be deported.
Bureau of Immigration (BI) deputy spokesman Melvin Mabulac identified the fugitives as Robert Wayne Boling Jr., 38, and Allan Albert Velarde Kerr, 30. They were arrested last August 7 in the cities of Angeles and Mabalacat, respectively, by operatives from the Bureau’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) headed by Bobby Raquepo.
Mabulac said the duo will be deported for being undesirable aliens and because they have become undocumented since their passports expired several years ago.
‘They will be sent home to face trial for the crimes they allegedly committed. Also, their continued presence here poses a risk to public safety and security,’ he said.
Meanwhile, FSU chief Raquepo disclosed that Boling and Kerr are subjects of arrest warrants issued by a US district court in Western Texas on July 23 this year.Both of them were reportedly charged before the said court with Wire Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering and Aggravated Identity Theft.
Raquepo said that prior to their capture, the duo overstayed in the country for many years during which they operated their fraudulent racket in connivance with other suspects here and in the US.
He added that Boling has been here since August 26, 2011 while Kerr’s last arrival was on Dec. 1, 2006.
