Agents of the U.S. Border Patrol continue to discover child predators and other dangerous criminals crossing the border. This week, in the Rio Grande Valley Sector alone, three convicted child predators, an alleged rapist, and two gang members were arrested. Another man was arrested with nearly $2 million worth of methamphetamine.
“Border Patrol agents remain vigilant in their efforts to protect this nation from all threats, including predators and convicted criminals attempting to illegally enter the country,” said Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla Jr., in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.
In what the Border Patrol listed as “significant arrests,” agents arrested two Mexican nationals and a Guatemalan national crossing the border who had previously been deported for criminal sexual acts against children. Those crimes include lewd or lascivious acts with a child, four counts of sexual assault of a child, and child rape.
