Kendall Jenner‘s alleged stalker was sent packing — his duffel bag, to be exact — back to Canada.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Enforcement and Removal Operations deported John Ford to his home country Tuesday following two convictions for trespassing into Jenner’s California home, according to a news release from Tuesday.
“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.”
A spokesperson for ICE provided Page Six with a photo of Ford, 38, at the airport, wearing an olive green jumpsuit and a straw hat, and carrying a print duffel bag.
He was escorted by ERO officers from El Paso, Texas to Houston International Airport, where he boarded a commercial flight, which ICE said officers verified went directly to Ontario, Canada.
In March, Ford was detained by ICE, 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.”
A rep for ICE previously told us Ford was not immediately removed from the US because “aliens processed for removal may receive their legal due process from federal immigration judges in the immigration courts.”
A federal immigration judge finally ordered Ford’s deportation on April 30.
The Canadian citizen entered the US through Sweetwater, Montana, using a non-immigrant B-2 visa, in March 2018. He was permitted to stay in the country for six months, meaning he was supposed to return to Canada by October.
Jenner, 23, was granted a temporary restraining order in October, and Ford was later ordered to stay away from the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star for five years. He also served jail time for trespassing.
A rep for Jenner could not be reached for comment about Ford’s deportation.
