Border Patrol Agents Arrest Child Sex Offenders, MS-13 Gang Member In TX, AZ, & California

Published

While illegal border crossings are going down, Border Patrol agents are catching more dangerous criminals & convicted child sex predators, it seems. The wall can’t go up fast enough.

On Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported:

“CALEXICO, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested a previously removed sex offender Monday morning.

The incident occurred at around 7 a.m., when agents assigned to the El Centro Station encountered a man suspected of illegally entering the United States approximately 18 miles east of the Calexico West Downtown Port of Entry. Agents arrested the man and transported him to the El Centro Station for immigration and criminal history screening.

Agents conducted records checks, which revealed that the man, later identified as Mauricio Moreno-Garcia, a 26-year-old Mexican national, was convicted of Sexual Lewdness w/Child less than 14 years of age in 2016 out of the state of Nevada. Moreno was sentenced to 24-60 months confinement for his conviction.

Moreno was removed from the United States on January 11, 2018 as an aggravated felon.

Moreno is being held in federal custody pending further criminal prosecution.

In fiscal year 2019, El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents have arrested and removed 21 individuals either convicted or wanted on sexual assault charges after they entered the United States illegally.”

Today CBP reported:

“TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender Monday near Sells.

Tucson Sector agents apprehended Adrian Castro-Garcia, a 33-year-old Mexican national illegally present in the country, late Monday evening. Castro-Garcia called 911 after he became lost in the desert after illegally crossing the international border. Agents quickly located him and provided medical attention.

Records checks revealed Castro-Garcia was convicted of sex with a minor in 2013 and again in 2014 by Los Angeles County, California. In both cases he was sentenced to more than 150 days of incarceration.

In both instances, Castro-Garcia was deported after serving time for his conviction.

Castro-Garcia will face federal prosecution for immigration violations.”

In another report, CBP notes:

EAGLE PASS, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents in Eagle Pass arrested a convicted sex offender and a confirmed MS-13 gang member this week.

“Agents are making significant criminal arrests along the border and we’ll seek prosecution of these individuals accordingly,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “U.S. Border Patrol agents remain vigilant and committed to safeguarding our communities.”

Agents apprehended Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, 55, a citizen of Mexico, after he entered the United States illegally. During processing, records checks revealed that he was convicted in 1992 of felony sexual abuse, in Polk County, Oregon.

As a convicted felon, he faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – re-entry after deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Agents also apprehended a previously deported confirmed MS-13 gang member, a national of El Salvador, shortly after he entered the United States illegally. He will be charged with 8 USC § 1325 – unlawful entry, and his prior order of removal will be reinstated.

All individuals apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks utilizing multiple databases including the use of biometrics to ensure those with criminal history are positively identified regardless of their immigration status.”

Help us get more wall built to keep these criminals out of our neighborhoods!

Brian Kolfage Pushes Back Against Shep Smith’s Claims Trump Has Built No New Wall

Published

on

...

* By

By Jeff Rainforth

Last Wednesday, longtime Trump antagonist & Fox News anchor, Shepard Smith, claimed that the president has built no new sections of border wall. Smith made the remark after President Trump Tweeted out a CBP video of a portion of the border wall that is under construction, stating that “The wall is going up very fast…”

The Hill reported:

“Fox News chief anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday disputed President Trump’s recent remarks about border wall construction, saying on air that “there is no new wall.”

Smith’s remarks were in response to a tweet from the president that said the wall is “going up very fast.”

“So far, despite the president’s claims to the contrary, there is no new wall,” Smith said. “Existing barriers have been replaced. Same span. The total of repaired barrier is about 60 miles along that 2,000-mile border.”

“The president also said in the tweet that the wall is going up rapidly. It is not. As we just reported, there’s no new wall. Only replacement for walls which were in need of repair or upgrade. Those are the facts,” Smith added.”

WATCH:

The problem with Smith’s claim is:

  1. There was never any wall in some of the places it is being built
  2. Trump never claimed that it was “new wall” in his Tweet, although he could have & he would have been factually correct

Brian Kolfage, who just oversaw the completion of our first section of border wall, took umbrage with Smith’s claims & those made by hosts on CNN and proceeded to dismantle them in a series of Twitter posts.

We have visited several border states & toured sections that only had Normandy barrier or metal posts in the ground in order to keep vehicles out. Many of the sites we toured had no pedestrian barriers, such as bollard walls.

Smith is wrong to say that President Trump has built “no new wall.” There wasn’t a wall in the places the government is building. Trump is absolutely putting up “new wall.”

In the meantime, We Build the Wall has constructed our first section of border wall where none existed before. We’re about to start on sections 2 & 3 soon, too. Smith should put that in his pipe & smoke it.
