Border Patrol agents arrested 23 previously deported sex offenders after they illegally crossed the border into the United States.

“Transnational criminal networks don’t do background checks on the people they help smuggle into the country,” said Chief Rodney Scott. “Our vigilance makes this country safer, one encounter at a time.”

Border Patrol officials report that all migrants apprehended after illegally crossing the border undergo a biometric background investigation that includes checking local, state, and federal law enforcement databases for warrants and previous convictions. In these cases below, the illegal aliens had previous convictions for sexual offenses — many against children.
