CALEXICO – In two separate incidents last week, U.S. Border Patrol Agents arrested two felons who had already previously “been removed from the United States.”

Around 5:00 p.m. on September 27 agents came upon a man they suspected of entering the country illegally. They detained him for “immigration  and criminal history screening.”

Sure enough, 52-year-old Oscar Rodriguez Espinoza had been convicted in 2003 in California for attempted murder and lewd acts with a child under 14. After receiving an 11-year sentence, the suspect was “removed from the United States by an Immigration Judge on Sept. 11, 2012 as an aggravated felon.”

The next day around 2:00 a.m., the same thing occurred – agents came upon a man they suspected of entering the country illegally, and they took him for screening.

27-year-old Jose Alonso Varquez had been convicted of sex with a minor in 2013 in California, and had also been “removed from the United States on Sept. 13, 2013 as an aggravated felon.”

In fiscal 2019, 25 people who were “either convicted or wanted on sexual assault charges” and illegally entered the US have been arrested and taken out of the country.
