U.S. Border Patrol agents Saturday apprehended a convicted contract killer and a child sex offender who tried to reenter the country illegally.
Agents from the Three Points Station arrested a man near Sells, Arizona, after he tried to illegally reenter the country, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The agents identified the man as a 35-year-old Guatemalan citizen named Jose Juana-Zapata.
CPB claims that Border Patrol agents also conducted a biometric background investigation. This investigation indicated that a court in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania had convicted Juana-Zapata in 2008 on a murder-for-hire charge and sentenced him to three years behind bars.
That same day, agents patrolling near the Port of Douglas arrested another man, according to CBP. The agents identified the man as a 40-year-old Mexican citizen named Victor Rodriguez-Galven.
Although the number of people in our custody has decreased, I reminded Congress yesterday that the crisis is not over. pic.twitter.com/6DNby1v6Rf— USBPChief (@USBPChief) July 25, 2019
