Ingmar Guandique is escorted by two ICE officers to his flight to El Salvador.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — ICE has deported an MS-13 gang member who had ties to Virginia back to his home country of El Salvador, they announced today.

Ingmar Guandique-Blanco, 35, has a criminal record dating back to 2001, when he was arrested in D.C.

Guandique-Blanco previously served a sentence of ten years on two counts of assault with intent to commit robbery, and in 2011, he was convicted of first degree murder, but the case was thrown out.

In June, immigration officials took over his case after the murder charge was dismissed. He was detained at Farmville Detention Center until he was flown out of the country.
