Border Patrol Arrests Human Smuggler, Convicted Sex Offender

Published

on

OCOTILLO, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested a human smuggler, previously convicted of a sexual offense, on Tuesday.

The incident occurred at around 9:52 a.m., when an agent assigned to roving patrol duties pulled over a vehicle that was suspected of alien smuggling on Interstate 8 just east of Ocotillo. Inside the car, agents encountered the driver, a 44-year-old United States citizen, and five passengers. Agents determined all five passengers to be illegally present in the United States.

Agents transported all six men to an immigration rally point for further processing. Record checks revealed that the driver had been previously convicted for “Sex with a Minor 3 Plus Years Younger” out of Santa Maria, on February 1, 1999. He was sentenced to 18 months of incarceration for his conviction.

The driver was processed administratively for 8 USC 1324 Alien Smuggling. The five passengers, all adult Mexican males, were expelled back to their country of origin.

This is the second incident of this kind in two weeks. Last week, El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents pulled over a vehicle near Silsbee Road and Even Hewes Highway, and found that the driver, caught with two illegal aliens in his car, was previously convicted of a sexual offense.

LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents intercepted a human smuggling attempt at the Border Patrol checkpoint on U.S. Highway 83 northwest of Laredo.

The incident occurred during the evening of July 5, when a red tractor approached the checkpoint. A non-intrusive scan of the vehicle revealed several individuals hidden inside.

Agents discovered eight individuals inside, all illegally present in the United States from the country of Mexico. The individuals, along with the driver, a U.S. citizen, were taken into custody pending investigation and subsequent prosecution. The tractor was seized by the U.S. Border Patrol.

Despite the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing summer heat, smugglers continue to endanger the lives of individuals they exploit and the health and safety of our Nation. U.S. Border Patrol agents strive to prevent the flow of illegal immigration and slow the spread of COVID-19.
