Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol (RGV) agents arrest two child sexual predators and more gang members.

Agents working at the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint referred a tractor trailer to the secondary inspection area following a K-9 alert on April 18.  A search of the trailer revealed four migrants illegally present in the U.S; among the group was a Salvadoran adult male. Record checks revealed he had a 2020 conviction of sexual assault of a child.


On Friday, April 15, Rio Grande City Border Patrol agents apprehended a group of nine migrants. Record checks on a Guatemala national adult male revealed he was convicted of sex with a minor less than 16 years old and had served 180 days and three years’ probation.

Additionally, RGV agents arrested an 18th Street and a Mara-Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang member with extensive arrest records to include unlawfully carrying of a weapon and assault.

Border Patrol processed all subjects accordingly.
