Border Patrol Re-Arrests Previously Deported Child Molester
Border patrol has arrested a previously deported illegal alien who was convicted of child sex crimes in 2007.
“On April 5, Border Patrol agents from the Eagle Pass Station arrested a 47-year-old Honduran national after he illegally entered the United States,” according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection release.
“Records checks revealed he was convicted in DeKalb County, Georgia in 2007 for child molestation,” the report continued. “The man was sentenced to three years confinement and was removed from the United States.”
Given there is no physical barrier to entry, the man was able to re-enter the United States, and Border Patrol had to use its resources to re-capture him – a story that is told over and over (and over and over and over) again.
According to the release, the man will face a possible decades-long prison sentence.
“As a convicted felon, the man faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – re-entry after deportation, which carries a maximum sentence up to 20 years in prison,” it said.
Meanwhile, the esteemed elected officials in Washington, D.C. are no closer to accomplishing President Donald J. Trump’s solution of building a border wall.
As illegal border crossings surge, Democrats blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget. President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency to address the issue, with plans to diver Department of Defense funding for the project, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration.
Even Republicans on Capitol Hill have faltered.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.
