PORTLAND, Ore. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers removed a Guatemalan national Thursday, who was convicted of a 1985 murder in Oregon.

On Dec. 13, 1985, the Portland Police Bureau arrested Luis Lopez Carrasco, 56, for murder and other local charges.

Lopez-Carrasco was previously removed in 1984 after an immigration judge issued him a final order of removal. He illegally re-entered the U.S. and in May 1985 was convicted in Texas for aggravated robbery and sentenced to 10 years’ confinement with the Texas Department of Corrections. It was while he was serving this sentence that Texas authorities facilitated his extradition to Oregon to face additional charges in Multnomah County, Oregon. . .
