SAN DIEGO — Border Patrol agents working near the U.S./Mexico International Boundary arrested two convicted sex offenders who had entered the U.S. illegally during two separate incidents.  Both men had felony convictions for sex crimes with a minor.

The first event occurred on Thursday, December 5 at approximately 6:30 p.m., when agents encountered five people approximately seven miles north of the border.  All five were Mexican nationals illegally present in the U.S.  Agents arrested the group and transported them to a nearby Border Patrol station for processing.

Record checks revealed that one of the men, a 49-year-old Mexican national, had a 2003 felony conviction for “Rape of a Child and Child Molestation” in the state of Washington.  The man was sentenced to 131 months in prison and subsequently deported to Mexico.

The second incident occurred at about 9:40 p.m., on Monday near Dulzura, Calif.  Agents located three men approximately three miles north of the U.S./Mexico International Boundary.  Determining them to be Mexican nationals in the U.S. illegally, the three men were arrested and transported to a nearby station for processing.

Record checks revealed that one of the men, a 38-year-old Mexican national, had a 2004 felony conviction for “Sexual Assault of a Minor” in the state of Nebraska.  He was sentenced to 24 months in prison and subsequently deported to Mexico.

Both of these aggravated felons are being held in Federal custody pending removal to Mexico.

To prevent the illicit smuggling of humans, drugs, and other contraband, the U.S. Border Patrol maintains a high level of vigilance on corridors of egress away from our Nation’s borders.  To report suspicious activity to the U.S. Border Patrol, contact San Diego Sector at (619) 498-9900.”
