Kendall Jenner’s alleged stalker has been deported.
John Ford — a 38-year-old Canadian citizen — was kicked out of the U.S. Tuesday after his hearing in El Paso, Texas.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed Ford, who showed up at Jenner’s home twice last year, had received a “final order of removal to Canada” after he was arrested in New Mexico in March.
He was thought to have been in the country illegally on an expired visitor visa, TMZ reports.
An ICE spokesperson told the site that his deportation could have “very well prevented a violent crime.
“Our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behaviour didn’t escalate to become a tragedy.”
“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,” said Corey A. Price, field office director for ICE ERO El Paso.
“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.”
