Convicted Criminals Arrested at the Border in the Rio Grande Valley
EDINBURG, Texas – Border Patrol agents arrest a sex-offender and a convicted murderer.
On Tuesday morning, McAllen agents working near Mission, Texas, arrested a Mexican national, later identified as Jose Grimaldo-Requena, whose record checks revealed a previous arrest in Dallas, Texas. The Dallas Police Department arrested Grimaldo-Requena for sexual assault of a child and a judge sentenced him to eight years incarceration.
The following evening, Weslaco agents working in Donna, Texas, arrested a Mexican national after he illegally entered the United States. During processing, record checks revealed an arrest and charge in Hidalgo County for “Murder-Intentionally Causing Death,” a 1st degree felony.
Both subjects were referred for Federal prosecution.
Even with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, human smugglers continue to try these brazen attempts with zero regard for the lives they endanger nor to the health of the citizens of our great nation. The U.S. Border Patrol agents of the Rio Grande Valley Sector will continue to safeguard the nation and community against these criminal elements.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with securing the borders of the United States while enforcing hundreds of laws and facilitating lawful trade and travel.
