The Kardashian-Jenner family expressed thanks to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for their role in detaining an illegal immigrant who had been stalking Kendall Jenner, breaking into her home on two occasions.
38-year-old John Ford was arrested for trespassing multiple times after the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star secured a restraining order, resulting in a jail sentence of nearly six months.
Ford served only a portion of that time and was released in February. He was released in February, only to be arrested again by ICE last week in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is a Canadian visitor whose visa had expired.

“This timely arrest could very well have prevented a violent crime,” a spokesperson for ICE said a statement. “Our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behavior didn’t escalate to become a tragedy.”
Ford is now looking at deportation hearings which will decide if he is sent packing.

“We are extremely appreciative of the hard work by the Los Angeles Police Dept. and ICE, whose swift response and professionalism led to this man’s apprehension,” they said in a statement.
“His actions have not only had a severe impact on Kendall’s life, but the entire family’s sense of security, causing us to fear for Kendall’s safety as well as our own,” it continued. “Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind.”
Good job ICE! Hopefully some of the Hollywood people will start speaking out about how important you heroes are now that you helped a Kardashian!

Caitlyn Jenner’s Support of Trump
Kendall is the daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, the latter of which was former Olympic athlete, Bruce Jenner.
Her father announced that he was transitioning from male to female in 2015, and as a lifelong Republican, maintained support for President Donald Trump early on.
Since then, Jenner has expressed disappointment in Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military. Now however, we’re sure Jenner is quite appreciative of Trump’s aggressive anti-illegal immigration policies.
