Record checks revealed that one of the individuals, a 49-year-old Mexican national has prior criminal and immigration history. This individual was previously convicted for a sexual offense: sexual battery: sex arousal, where he served 75 days in jail with three-years’ probation. Additionally, this individual was previously ordered to be removed from the U.S. by an immigration judge.

Since Oct. 1, 2021, El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents have arrested and/or removed nine individuals either convicted or wanted on sexual offense charges.

U.S. Border Patrol will process the individuals accordingly.
