Release Date: 
March 28, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz. – Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested nine convicted criminals within the last two weeks.

One subject was convicted of vehicular manslaughter and inflicting corporal injury on his spouse.  Another subject was convicted twice for rape of a child and also convicted on 3 separate occasions for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. 

One of the subjects is an MS-13 gang member from Honduras, while the others are from Mexico and El Salvador.  All of the subjects were previously charged, convicted and removed from the U.S. 

All nine of the subjects were apprehended for immigration violations and were processed for prosecution and removal proceedings in accordance with Tucson Sector prosecution guidelines.

In addition to enforcing immigration laws, the Border Patrol contributes to a safer America by removing dangerous criminals from the country. All individuals apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, a vital tool for ensuring illegal immigrants with criminal histories are positively identified.   

Customs and Border Protection also welcomes assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free. All calls will be answered and remain anonymous.
