( – An illegal alien from Brazil, who was deported once in 2007, was arrested in Massachusetts in late June and now faces charges of rape, assault and battery, and solicitation of a felony, reported U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

As ICE reported in a June 28 statement, the Brazilian national Antonio Ferreira was arrested by the Barnstable County Sheriff’s office on June 22 on “charges of rape, assault and battery, and solicitation of a felony.”

The Barnstable police office works with ICE to ensure that illegal aliens, after facing potential prosecution and sentencing in the United States are turned over to ICE for deportation through the 287g program.

“All current 287(g) agreements operate under a jail enforcement model, which operates solely within the confines of a jail,” said ICE. “Under this model an alien must first be arrested by local law enforcement on other criminal charges and brought to the facility before any 287(g) screening activity takes place.”

“The goal of this program is to enhance public safety by identifying aliens, lodging immigration detainers, and initiating removal proceedings by issuing charging documents on potentially deportable criminal aliens booked into the jail facility.”

Commenting on the cooperative program with ICE, Barnstable Sheriff James Cummings told the Boston Herald, “"This cooperative program is officially off to a good start. The end result will never charge. It will make our county and our country a safer place. If that means doing it one case at a time, so be it.”

“This is exactly why we wanted to be involved in this program, so individuals like this would not be released to the community in Barnstable County,” said the sheriff.

If Ferreira is convicted and sentenced for his alleged crimes in Massachusetts, after his sentencing he will be turned over to ICE for deportation.
