Kendall Jenner's Stalker Has Been Deported Back To Canada By ICE
Welcome back, I guess?
If you're a Kardashian-Jenner fan, you probably know that over the years, the girls have had some um... "dedicated" fans. When you're a celebrity, the paparazzi follow you everywhere, and people are constantly trying to sneak photos of you and find out your location. Essentially, your privacy is next to none. You may remember a while back when an especially creepy fan began allegedly stalking Kendall. Well, Kendall Jenner's stalker has been sent back to Canada.
Last October, a man named John Ford scaled a hill by Kendall's home and ended up by her swimming pool. Shortly after that, he returned again and this time ended up on her porch.
Upon further investigation, it was found out that Ford is a 38-year old Canadian citizen who was in the U.S. on a visitor visa that had since expired, meaning he was in the country illegally.
Ford was arrested by ICE back in March in New Mexico, after being hunted down by the authorities. Authorities feared that Ford could get violent with Jenner and others, so they're incredibly glad to have hunted him down.
Following his hearing in El Paso, Texas, it was ruled that Ford would be deported out of the United States and back to Canada. He was escorted by officers from El Paso to the Houston airport and then flown out of the U.S. into Ontario, Canada.
An ICE spokesperson told TMZ that they believe they "very well have prevented a violent crime", and also said, "our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behaviour didn't escalate to become a tragedy."
It's unknown exactly WHY Ford was in the U.S., but he came in through Sweetwater, Montana with a non-immigrant B-2 Visa, which would allow him to stay for no longer than six months. Upon his arrest, the Kardashian-Jenner family released the following statement:
"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. 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. Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind."
