I'm in MD but this action would take place in NY State
About 3 weeks ago, I received information about a female from another country that was in the US with a fake foreign passport containing a fake US VISA and is also in possession of a fake Canadian passport and other fake ID documents. 2 weeks ago, I received one of her two addresses and reported her to ICE. An investigator took all the information and said he would hand it off to someone else to check into. I can understand they need to verify some of the information I gave them before they expend scarce resources to pursue this individual. This woman is currently in the State of New York.
I have some personal issues with this woman and that is one of the reasons I reported her. Now I have been told by someone familiar with ICE that they almost always disregard information like this when they believe there is a reason of personal retribution involved. I also know ICE is buried with the task of apprehending people like this.
I am receiving information as to her whereabouts by a contact in New York. It has been 15 days now since I called ICE with an address and nothing has been done. My contact is about to pull the plug on his info and I know I will have to do something drastic if I want her taken into custody. I am considering traveling to New York to make a citizens arrest. I have researched the law regarding this in NY as much as I could, and I understand there could be repercussions if I donít do this right.
My question: Can I call ICE, local or State Law Enforcement when I physically spot her and request assistance? I do not want to have to physically restrain her and am considering this only as a last resort. But at this point, I do not expect that ICE will do anything, and to me, it is imperative that this woman be arrested for these felonies.
Any advice?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
