Three Child Molesters Arrested Trying to Cross Border Illegally
Three men who had previously been deported from the United States after child molestation convictions were arrested this week trying to re-enter the country at the southern border.
“In the most recent arrest, agents at the Sarita checkpoint between Brownsville and Corpus Christi took a Salvadoran man into custody Wednesday as he tried to skirt the border checkpoint through thick brush. They ran a record check and discovered he had been arrested by Dallas police on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault of a minor,” said a Dallas News report.
According to the report, a second man was arrested Tuesday attempting to cross the border near Mission, Texas where a background check showed that he had been arrested in the state for indecency with a child, for which he served three years in prison.
Finally, a third man was arrested Tuesday afternoon near Brownsville, Texas. He had been convicted in South Carolina for criminal sexual conduct with a minor, resulting in a 12 year prison sentence.
None of the men were named by police.
The fact that three illegal men with past convictions for child sex crimes attempted to re-enter the country in separate incidents, but during the same week, highlights not only the problem with illegal reentry, but also the prominence of sex crimes committed by illegals.
