US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said Tuesday that Border Patrol agents in Texas have arrested a convicted murderer who illegally re-entered the United States after his deportation.
The arrests took place on September 27 in the CBP’s Rio Grande Valley sector, which covers a 320-mile border in southeastern Texas. A Honduran citizen was among a group of six captured illegal immigrants who have been convicted of murder in Miami, Florida, according to CBP.
CBP said the man was sentenced to 18 months in prison and three years of probation for the crime, and was later deported from the United States. If convicted of illegal re-entry after eviction, which is a federal crime, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
Later that day, Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) soldiers requested assistance on a suspected stewhouse operation. CBP agents responded and captured 12 illegal immigrants. The men were from Ecuador, Central America, Mexico and Peru, and DPS personnel detained one person on charges of smuggling and running a stash house.
So far in fiscal year 2021, Border Patrol agents across the country have found more than 440 illegal immigrant stashhouses in the Rio Grande Valley sector, according to CBP. Agents have also arrested 325 gang members, of whom more than 150 were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley.
According to media reports that turned out to be untrue, President Joe Biden said that some Border Patrol agents would “pay” for allegedly “whipping” Haitian citizens who sought to avoid officers at the Texas-Mexico border. In response, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said his state is ready to hire any agent who is concerned the Biden administration might fire them.
“I’ll hire you to help secure our border,” Abbott said on “Fox News Sunday,” when the host asked if he was trying to detain Haitian immigrants near Del Rio, Texas. Rahe was “disturbed” by the photographs showing mounted agents. horseback
Abbott said, “The person who took those pictures said that the characterization that Democrats have about the Border Patrol is using them as a whip, whipping people coming across the border.” Yes, he’s a liar.” “They were just maneuvering the horses.”
“I want them to know something: If they are in danger of losing the job of a president who is giving up his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas,” he said.
