Viewers across the country can catch U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in action today, Saturday, May 7 during A&E’s “Manhunters” marathon. The network will air four episodes of the series “Manhunters: Fugitive Taskforce” starting at 1 p.m. (EDT).
Two episodes will highlight the work of ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers who serve on New York’s U.S. Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force. The group takes down elusive, dangerous criminals that threaten our nation’s safety.
“Tommy’s Nightmare” airs at 2 p.m. A removed, convicted criminal alien - an expert in fraud and forgery - sneaks back in the United States. There are several leads, but because of the individual’s history of falsifying documents, he could be living under a variety of aliases.
“The Ruse” airs at 2:30 p.m. After committing attempted murder in the United States, a Mexican gang member is deported back to his country. Soon after, federal authorities learn that he has made his way back to New York. The task force is called in to track down the convicted felon.
A special episode of “Manhunters: Fugitive Task Force” will air on May 26. This episode is dedicated to ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent Jaime Zapata who was killed in the line of duty in Mexico earlier this year.
