MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Alysa Erichs has been named the new chief of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency’s South Florida office.
Erichs had been the acting chief. Erichs was previously a deputy special agent in charge of the Miami office and was acting chief of the Dallas office as well. She also worked at ICE headquarters in Washington and was a criminal investigator for the Internal Revenue Service before her customs career began.
The office’s jurisdiction runs from Key West to Fort Pierce and it has 450 employees.
Erichs replaces Anthony Mangione, who is facing a May trial on child pornography charges. Mangione retired from ICE shortly after he was charged. He has pleaded not guilty.
