Convicted Murderer Illegally in US Arrested by Border Patrol Agents

Convicted Murderer Illegally in US Arrested by Border Patrol Agents

HOUSTON, Texas — A convicted murderer who was in the U.S. illegally was recently arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas’ Eagle Pass South Station. 

44-year-old Francisco Rodriguez-Garcia is a Mexican man convicted of second degree murder in Sanford, North Carolina, in 1997. According to the El Paso Business Journal, Border Patrol agents learned of the Mexican national’s criminal record — as well as the fact that he was in the U.S. illegally — while processing him at the Eagle Pass station. 

Rodriguez-Garcia served 12 years in prison for the murder. He was subsequently deported back to his home country.

It is unclear when or how Rodriguez-Garcia illegally re-entered the United States. 

Chief Patrol Agent of the Del Rio Sector, Rodolfo Karisch, said in a statement, “Our encounter with this dangerous individual shows the type of environment agents and law enforcement officers deal with on a daily basis. We rely on the invaluable training we receive to protect our communities and the nation.”

Agents in the Del Rio Sector, near the Texas-Mexico border, have continued to apprehend an alarming number of illegal immigrant criminals amid the border crisis.

Earlier this year, Breitbart Texas reported on the arrest of numerous sex offenders — all in the U.S. illegally — in the Del Rio Sector. Some of those apprehended were previously convicted of raping children in the United States; despite serving time in prison and then being deported, these individuals re-entered the country. 

Critics claim that the U.S. is not harsh enough on illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes — in their view, the foreigner felons have little fear when they come back to the country after being deported.
