Texas – October 13, 2018
Border agents in Texas arrested three sex offenders in two days, one of whom had been jailed in Dallas, Dallas News reported. According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials, all three men, whose names were not released, had previously been deported from the U.S. after child molestation convictions.
“In the most recent arrest, agents at the Sarita checkpoint between Brownsville and Corpus Christi took a Salvadoran man into custody Wednesday as he tried to skirt the border checkpoint through thick brush. They ran a record check and discovered he had been arrested by Dallas police on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault of a minor,” said a Dallas News report.
On Tuesday, a second man from Mexico was arrested by McAllen agents attempting to illegally cross the border near Mission, Texas, where a record check showed that he had been previously arrested in McAllen for indecency with a child, for which he served three years in prison.
In the end, agents near Brownsville arrested another Mexican. He had been convicted in South Carolina for criminal sexual conduct with a minor, resulting in a 12-year prison sentence.
