Press Release

October 20, 2011

(WASHINGTON) Following his press conference on Monday with Milford Police Chief Thomas O'Loughlin, and the parents of Matthew Denice, Congressman Richard E. Neal released the following letter to Department of Homeland Secretary (DHS) Janet Napolitano today asking for a "full inquiry into this matter including a top down review of all policies presently in place that allowed Mr. Luis Acosta to board a flight at JFK international airport and travel undetected out of the United States. I also ask for a review of the policy allowing private subcontractors to administer these monitoring devises and whether this contributed to the failure of ICE in this case." Since the disappearance of Mr. Acosta, Neal has worked closely with local law enforcement to prevent a similar incident from occurring and to bring truth and accountability to the Denice family.
