U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement have deported a former Mexican police officer, wanted for homicide in his native homeland after his recent apprehension in southern Washington.

ICE agents handed custody of 64-year-old Humberto Bautista-Sanchez, over to officials with Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office (PGR) on Wednesday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Bautista-Sanchez is the subject of an arrest warrant issued by Mexican authorities for a 1994 murder in Mexico City.

According to an Interpol Red Notice, Bautista-Sanchez stands accused of fatally beating a man to death, who was found relieving himself on the street, after refusing to get into his squad car.

Bautista-Sanchez was arrested Sept. 15 in Richland by ICE agents in Seattle and was subsequently placed in deportation proceedings while he remained in custody.

An immigration judge ordered him removed last month, paving the way for Wednesday’s deportation.

“Someone in a position of public trust who is capable of murder shows a total disregard for humanity and is a danger to us all,” said Bryan Wilcox, acting field office director for ICE in Seattle said in a statement. “Our cooperation with Mexican authorities is imperative to ensuring the safety of our communities. ERO remains committed to locating and removing all fugitive criminals seeking refuge from their crimes in America.”
