Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended a sex offender who illegally entered the United States early Monday morning.

At approximately 2 a.m., an agent patrolling the desert east of the San Luis Port of Entry, encountered a migrant trying to evade detection. The migrant was arrested and taken to the Yuma station for further processing.

Agents identified the migrant as Jorge Perez-Diaz, 58. Record checks conducted on Perez-Diaz revealed felony convictions for lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor, for which he served time in the Idaho State Penitentiary, and re-entry into the U.S. following a prior removal.

Perez-Diaz’s most recent removal from the U.S. was March 22 through the Calexico, California Port of Entry. Perez-Diaz will face re-entry charges for his most recent apprehension by Yuma agents.
