A man who’s been stalking reality star Kendall Jenner and had become a threat to her after showing up at her home twice has been arrested by ICE. Last October, he was found by her swimming pool and another time on her porch.
He entered the U.S. a year ago from Canada and overstayed his 6-month visa. ICE had been tracking 38-year-old John Ford for weeks. According to TMZ, ICE made it clear that if they didn’t throw this guy out of the country, there would have been a ‘tragedy involving violence directed at Kendall’.
ICE agents were searching for Ford and were able to capture him at a New Mexico hotel. He’s now awaiting deportation in El Paso, Texas.
“This timely arrest could very well have prevented a violent crime. Our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behavior didn’t escalate to become a tragedy.”
Kendall Jenner’s family released a statement thanking the LAPD and ICE:
“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.”
Visa overstays are another huge immigration problem in America:
