Third time's the charm, I guess?
On Thursday, United States Border Patrol agents announced the arrest of an illegal alien was previously twice deported and has been convicted of sexually assaulting a minor while in the United States.
According to San Antonio News 4, authorities arrested "42-year-old Mexican national Miguel Diaz-Cardoso Sept. 11 near Quemado for illegally entering the country" near the Eagle Pass border station. After running a background check on the illegal alien, authorities discovered that as recently as 2016 the man in question had been convicted for a sexual offense involving a minor and had previously been deported on two separate occasions.
In a press release, Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez said that, “Apprehensions like this highlight our border security efforts and the threats we face along the border."
"Our agents remain vigilant and alert to protect our communities against dangerous individualz," Chavez added.
Likewise, other border patrol agents arrested yet another sexual pervert on September 12 near the El Centro sector in Calexico, TX. According to a press release, that illegal alien had also been previously deported from the United States on Nov. 13, 2015 after being "convicted as a juvenile on April 13, 2003 in Minneapolis, Minn., for Criminal Sexual Conduct-First Degree Penetration Acts with a Child. He received one year in prison and a fine. The man also has a pending charge for failing to register as a predator offender in Sept. of 2009."
Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez said in a press release that, “I am proud of the great work Border Patrol agents demonstrated in stopping this previously deported convicted sex offender. Their actions have kept our communities safe.”
Both men are being held by authorities and will likely face jail time before being removed from the country.
