Border Patrol officials along the entire southwest border with Mexico report increasing numbers of previously deported child sex offenders illegally re-entering the U.S. The criminal aliens reportedly include child molesters and child rapists.

As the border crisis continues to grow, Border Patrol officials report they are seeing increasing numbers of criminal aliens attempting to re-enter the United States after being deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The reports come from nearly every sector along the southwest border, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials revealed.

Tuesday evening, McAllen Station agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector arrested a migrant who illegally crossed the border near Mission, Texas, CBP officials stated. During the processing, agents conducted a biometric background investigation that identified one of the men as Jonathan Rivera-Rosales, a Honduran national. The criminal background check uncovered a conviction from a court in Marathon County, Wisconsin, for 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child. The court convicted Rivera-Rosales and sentenced him to ten years probation. Officials did not disclose the age of the child.

A few days earlier, McAllen Station agents apprehended a group of eight illegal aliens, again near Mission. In this group, the agents identified one of the migrants as Jose Moreno, another Honduran national. Records discovered by the agents show a court in Suffolk County, New York, convicted the Honduran migrant for “rape forcible compulsion” and “sexual conduct against a child,” officials stated. The court sentenced him to nine years in state prison.

At the other end of the southwest border, San Diego Sector agents coordinated with U.S. Coast Guard officials to interdict an offshore human smuggling attempt. During the processing of 14 adult males, four adult women, and a 15-year-old child — all Mexican nationals — the agents identified one of the men as a previously deported criminal alien. A court in Oregon convicted the 39-year-old man of rape in 2006 and sentenced him to 75 months in state prison.

Two of the other Mexican nationals in the group had previously been deported as well.

El Centro Sector officials also report they arrested 12 migrants with sexual offense convictions or charges.

Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Hastings said his agents arrested 91 sex offenders so far this fiscal year which began on October 1, 2020.
