LAREDO, TEXAS –Border Patrol agents from the Laredo Sector made three significant arrests of undocumented immigrants in three separate cases within the stations of the Laredo Sector.
On November 5, agents assigned to the Laredo North Station arrested a male Mexican national who had been charged and convicted in 2013 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, for Sexual Abuse to a Child. The following day, Laredo West Station agents arrested a male Mexican national who was charged and convicted in 1993 in Los Angeles, California, for Sexual Intercourse with a Minor. The last case happened on November 9, when Laredo South Border Patrol agents arrested a third subject, a Mexican national, who was previously convicted of Aggravated Sexual Assault.
“These arrests illustrates how our Border Patrol agents work diligently to safeguard our borders, which includes keeping convicted criminal immigrants out of the communities we serve,” said Chief Patrol Agent, Mario Martinez.
All three subjects will be processed accordingly.
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 the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
