This is a strange story. : I thought the border was secure. : How is this possible:
Border Patrol agents in South Texas have arrested nearly 180 illegal immigrants convicted of sex crimes since last October, Customs and Border Protection announced this week.
The majority of the offenders’ crimes were committed against children, the worst of which included “sexual assault of a child; sodomy, lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14; aggravated sexual assault of a child; and aggravated indecent assault and corruption of a minor,” CBP said in a: release: Tuesday.
According to CBP, the nearly 180 illegal immigrants’ prior convictions were for sex crimes all over the United States. They were apprehended by Rio Grande Valley Sector agents.
In addition to the convicted illegal immigrants, RGV Sector agents also caught three illegal immigrants with arrest warrants for sex-related crimes just last weekend.
