Honduran Subject Had Been Previously Deported
Del Rio, Texas – A Honduran National, arrested by the San Angelo Police in February, was recently turned over to U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the San Angelo Station.
On Feb. 14, the San Angelo Police Department arrested Jose Santos Argueta, 32, an undocumented immigrant from Honduras, after receiving a call from the local Walmart of a male subject illegally videotaping a woman in the stall of a women’s restroom. On Oct. 13, Argueta was convicted of improper photography or visual recording and was subsequently given a 270-day sentence. On Nov. 11, the San Angelo Police Department turned Argueta over to San Angelo Border Patrol agents. Immigration records show that on April 29, 2009, Argueta had been previously deported from the United States.
Argueta will have his previous order of removal reinstated and he will be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
