Border Patrol agents arrested multiple criminal migrants, sex offenders, and members of criminal gangs over the past few days. Those arrested included a convicted rapist, a member of the violent MS-13 transnational gang with multiple deportations, and a fugitive accused of molesting a child in 2019.
McAllen Station Border Patrol agents arrested three migrants on Saturday after they illegally crossed the border near Palmview, Texas. During processing, agents identified one of the migrants as a criminal alien having been convicted in 2006 by a court in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, for aggravated assault and battery with a weapon. The court sentenced the Mexican national to 10 years in prison.
