Wanted on Child Porn Charges, Mexican Citizen Apprehended

Apprehended while wanted on child pornography charges, fugitive Alfonso Hernandez-Gonzalez, a citizen of Mexico, remained in the custody of the Imperial County, California Sheriff’s office Tuesday morning. 

Hernandez-Gonzalez had been taken into custody when he attempted to pass through the Calexico West port of entry last week. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers discovered an active Federal warrant for his arrest. 

A 56-year-old male, Hernandez-Gonzalez was a passenger in a Toyota Corolla when the vehicle and its occupants were selected for secondary inspection at the border crossing, 4:30 a.m. on September 17.

It was during a more in-depth inspection that Hernandez-Gonzalez’s warrant, issued at the request of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Fresno, was discovered. According to a CBP release, “CBP officers escorted Hernandez to a secure location for processing where they confirmed his identity, and the active no-bail warrant.”

Hernandez is reportedly a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. and was taken into custody by HSI special agents who booked him into the Imperial County Jail. 

Last week, Breitbart’s Kristin Tate reported on five convicted sex offender illegal aliens arrested in just one month by Border Patrol agents in Texas’ Del Rio border sector on the U.S.-Mexico border. Spokesman for the Del Rio sector, Jose Castro, told Tate, “We’ve seen an increase in apprehensions in people who had been deported who had been convicted of sexual crimes. Last year, we apprehended 16 previously deported sex offenders in Del Rio Sector.”
