Border patrol agents in several sectors of the southwestern border arrested sex offenders on previously deported minors and members of violent gangs.
Sector Patrol Chief Officer Yuma Chris T. Clem tweeted photos of two different child sex offenders after they illegally re-entered the United States from Mexico. Officers arrested 57-year-old Domi Gustavo Jimenez Mayorquin, a Mexican citizen, after illegally crossing the border from Mexico to Arizona on Saturday night. During a biometric background investigation, officers found that a New York court had convicted the man of sexual assault on a child in 1995.

Any previously deported migrants could face federal proceedings for illegal re-entry after removal as a convicted criminal. If convicted, each could face up to 20 years in federal prison.
