Del Rio, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Del Rio Sector arrested two convicted sex offenders shortly after they illegally entered the United States, Dec. 21.
Eagle Pass Station agents arrested a man from Honduras. Record checks revealed that, in 2018, he was convicted of sexual assault of a child and sentenced to four years confinement. The man was most recently removed from the United States in 2020.
