Kendall Jenner’s alleged stalker has been deported back to his native Canada. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported John Ford Tuesday following two convictions for trespassing at the supermodel’s home.
“Removing potentially dangerous aliens who are unlawfully present in our country is of the highest priority for ICE, especially those who threaten the safety of Americans,” Corey A. Price, field office director for ICE ERO El Paso, said in a statement. “The swift action of our officers helped protect the Kardashian-Jenner family and future potential victims of John Ford. Our officers work tirelessly to remove criminal aliens from our communities, making them safer and our nation more secure.”
Ford, 38, was escortd by ERO officers from Texas to Houston International Airport, where he boarded a commercial flight headed to Ontario. Ford was detained by ICE in March and held in custody in El Paso until his deportation.
The Kardashian-Jenner family issued a statement about the arrest, saying, “We are extremely appreciative of the hard work by the Los Angeles Police Department and ICE, whose swift response and professionalism lead to the apprehension of this man. Not only have his actions had a severe impact on Kendall’s life, but on our entire family, causing all of us to fear for her safety as well as our own. Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind.”
Ford came into the U.S. through Montana using a B-2 visa in March of 2018. Per the visa, he was supposed to return to Canada in October. The 23-year-old Jenner was granted a restraining order in October.
