Since joining the San Juan Field Office three years ago, Roberto Cintron has played a key role in establishing a USCIS presence within San Juan and U.S. Virgin Islands while forging partnerships with local, state, and federal law enforcement and working closely with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations in San Juan.

Through these partnerships, Cintron has helped lead the efforts to close numerous national security related cases on behalf of USCIS, as well as the arrest and prosecution of several individuals involved in FBI criminal and terrorism related investigations.
