A Mexican national recently arrested in Santa Teresa, New Mexico by the United States Border Patrol was repatriated to Mexico for an outstanding warrant.

U.S. Border Patrol agents who caught the individual were alerted to the subject’s outstanding warrant for homicide in Mexico. Collaboration between the Santa Teresa Border Patrol Station, Foreign Operations Branch (FOB) agents and authorities from the Government of Mexico confirmed the outstanding warrant and arranged the repatriation.

The 31-year-old Mexican national, wanted for murder in his native country, was turned over Wednesday to Mexican authorities at an El Paso area border crossing by El Paso Sector FOB agents.

“Border Patrol Agents assigned to the El Paso Sector Foreign Operations Branch routinely work with officials from the Government of Mexico – it is a longstanding partnership and seamless relationship in our region – and one that I’m very proud to embrace,” said El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez. “We will continue to work with our Mexican counterparts to repatriate wanted individuals across the border”.
