PERRY, N.Y. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Buffalo Station arrested two illegal aliens last weekend, after a police officer from the Town of Perry requested assistance in identifying two subjects.
Border Patrol agents responded to a call from Perry Police on December 17. Perry officers requested assistance to identify two subjects encountered while investigating an abandoned vehicle found in the middle of a road. The individuals were identified as Eliaquin Abilder Aguilar-Roblero, age 22, and Francisco Javier Roblero-Bravo, age 20. A Border Patrol records check revealed the pair were illegally present in the U.S. Following the Perry Police Department’s investigation of a potential alcohol-related violation, the subjects were arrested and transported to the Buffalo Border Patrol Station for processing.
Record checks revealed that Aguilar-Roblero legally entered the U.S. on May 2, 2016, on a valid visa as an agricultural worker. He received his visa to work at a farm in Waycross, Ga., though the visa expired on July 5, 2016. Aguilar-Roblero stated that he moved to Perry, N.Y., to work on a local farm, instead of leaving the U.S.
Roblero-Bravo claimed that he entered the U.S. illegally in December, 2015, by crossing the Rio Grande River. Both subjects were held in DHS custody pending removal from the U.S.
“The successful collaboration between the men and women of the Buffalo Border Patrol Station and local law enforcement is important to securing our communities, and allowing us a safer place to live,” said Jeffrey Wilson, Patrol-Agent-In-Charge of the Buffalo Border Patrol Station.
