Yuma and Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested previously deported criminal aliens after they illegally crossed into the U.S.

Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents on Interstate 10 conducted a vehicle stop in the early morning hours of September 16. During an immigration interview, the agents identified one of the occupants as a 29-year-old Mexican national illegally present in the U.S.

The agents arrested the Mexican national and transported him to the station for a biometric background investigation. The investigation revealed a felony conviction from a court in North Carolina for an unlawful concealed weapon. The records also revealed a 2017 case from an Arizona court for abuse of a child or vulnerable adult.

The agents released the other occupant of the vehicle. The Mexican national now faces new federal felony charges for illegal re-entry after removal as a convicted felon.

Later that night, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents patrolling the Arizona border along a remote trail encountered a man who illegally crossed the border from Mexico. Agents identified the man as a 32-year-old Honduran national. The agents arrested him and transported the migrant to the station for processing and a biometric background investigation.

The investigation identified the man as Henrry Zelaya-Flores. The records check uncovered a conviction by a Dallas County, Texas, court for indecency with a child. The court issued a two-year prison sentence. Immigration officers later deported the man to Honduras.

Zelaya-Flores now faces felony federal charges for illegal re-entry after removal as a convicted child sex offender.
