Border Patrol Arrests 3 Sex Offenders in 3 Hours

Release Date

TUCSON, Ariz. – Three male sex offenders, previously convicted for sex crimes against children, were captured within three hours of each other early Wednesday by Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents.

All three men, nationals of Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico, were previously deported and now face criminal charges for re-entering the United States.

Border Patrol agents work to create a safer America by apprehending criminals attempting to enter the U.S. illegally. Returning sex offenders pose a threat to the communities in which they attempt to reside, as they tend not to register with local authorities.
