Two of the arrests occurred in the El Centro Sector in California on Friday and Saturday.
Both apprehensions involved male illegal aliens from Mexico — one who had been sentenced to probation for “sex with a minor” in California, and another who had served time in prison for sexual assault in New Jersey.
A third incident in California came when “agents assigned to the Highway 86 checkpoint encountered a woman with an active federal warrant for ‘Failure to Appear,'” CBP explained in a statement.
“Additionally, records checks revealed that the woman, a 32-year-old United States citizen, had a conviction on April 24, 2017, for ‘Annoy/Molest children’ out of San Bernardino, California. The woman was sentenced to 36 months probation and 30 days jail.”
Two more Mexican illegals were caught in separate events in Texas.
A vehicle stopped on Thursday by the Texas Department of Public Safety was found to be carrying multiple illegal aliens, including a man convicted in Dallas County of “indecency with a child.”
Agents in McAllen, TX, apprehended another man two days later who had been convicted of “aggravated sexual assault of a child” in Henderson County.
