Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol Agents recently apprehended individuals who had previously been ousted from the U.S., including two who are registered sex offenders, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

A CBP press release reported that agents on Wednesday apprehended a man who had unlawfully entered the country, and records checks flagged the individual as a registered sex offender.

"During processing, record checks identified the Honduran national as a registered sexual offender," the press release noted. "In 2012, the migrant was charged with 2nd degree felony rape of a child under 15 years of age in Suffolk County, New York. He was convicted upon a guilty plea and removed from the United States in 2013."

Agents later arrested a man who had been charged with sexual assault and deported in 2019. "Later that afternoon, McAllen Border Patrol Station agents arrested a 42-year-old male traveling within a group of twenty-one migrants," CBP reported. "The Mexican national has a previous charge of a 4th degree sexual assault in Polk County, Arkansas, in February 2019. The migrant was subsequently deported to his country in July of 2019."

A short time later, authorities arrested a Honduran man who had unlawfully entered the U.S. amidst a group of families. "The 42-year-old male's criminal records identified him as a registered sex offender in Wisconsin," the press release noted. "Along with a lengthy criminal record including substance abuse, the migrant was convicted of 4th Degree Sexual Assault in 2012. He was sentenced to 45 days confinement and 2 years' probation. He was most recently removed in 2015."
