ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents deported a man convicted of trespassing at the California home of fashion icon Kendall Jenner. 38-year-old John Ford was escorted by officers onto his direct flight to Canada.
Acting on a tip, ICE agents had located and arrested 38-year-old John Ford in the parking lot of an Albuquerque motel in March.
Jenner had filed protection orders against Ford, which he violated by trespassing on her property. Earlier this year, he was arrested after being found swimming in Jenner's pool.
"The swift action of our officers helped protect the Kardashian-Jenner family and future potential victims of John Ford," said Corey A. Price, field office director for ICE El Paso. "Our officers work tirelessly to remove criminal aliens from our communities, making them safer and our nation more secure."
ICE officials say Ford entered the U.S. from Canada with a non-immigrant B-2 visa which allowed him to be in the country for no longer than six months.
In March, Jenner's family released a statement thanking authorities for their swift actions in arresting Ford:
“We are extremely appreciative of the hard work by the Los Angeles Police Department and ICE, whose swift response and professionalism lead to the apprehension of this man. Not only have his actions had a severe impact on Kendall’s life, but on our entire family, causing all of us to fear for her safety as well as our own. Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind.”
