Border Patrol Agents Arrest MS-13 Member, Child Sex Predators at the Arizona Border

Border Patrol agents in Arizona arrested an MS-13 member along with two previously deported child sex offenders after they attempted to illegally re-enter the U.S. in Arizona.

As reported by Breitbart, Tucson Sector agents assigned to the Ajo Station arrested a 28-year-old Mexican national Friday night after he illegally crossed the border east of the Lukeville Port of Entry.

According to officials, The Mexican national was transported by agents to the Ajo Station for processing and was later identified as Juan Hernandez Arnas.

During a biometric background investigation, the agents learned Hernandez-Arnas served six years in a California prison following a 2012 conviction in Bakersfield for “Lewd or Lascivious Acts with a Child under 14-years-old.”

The following day, Tucson Station agents arrested a 26-year-old Honduran after he illegally crossed the border into Arizona.

According to Border Patrol officials, a background check uncovered a 2010 conviction in Roswell, New Mexico, for a sex offense against a child.

The agents identified the Honduran national as Yelson Banegas-Barahona. Barahona has a previous deportation on his record. Both men face new federal charges for illegal re-entry after removal as sex offenders.

That same evening, Nogales Station agents arrested a group of four illegal immigrants from Honduras.  According to officials, They were located in a mountainous area west of Nogales.

Officials learned that one of the men, 35-year-old Reyes Guzman-Umanzor is a previously deported criminal alien who is affiliated with the violent transnational criminal gang known as MS-13.

According to Breitbart, Guzman’s previous removals followed convictions for DUI and drug possession. Guzman now faces new federal charges for illegal re-entry after removal.

The three other Hondurans were also processed for immigration violations. All three had previous removals from the U.S. Illegal re-entry after removal is a felony charge with a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison reported Breitbart.

  1. I currently live in AZ in Pinal County. Close to the Vekol valley which is a major corridor for drug and human trafficking. Signs in the desert warn people that the area isn’t safe because of this activity. I grew up in Southern Az, about 12 miles from the Mexican border. I can tell you from personal first hand knowledge and experience that our border is not secure. Our President was 100% correct when he said that murderers, rapists, and violent criminals cross our border illegally every day. If many of the open border/abolish ICE crowd could witness some of the horrors I have seen with my own eyes, and the crime that is a daily occurrence, they might not be so quick to take that stance.

    1. Yes, Bill, I know exactly what you’re saying. I lived in Phoenix and have family and friends down your way. Those ‘signs warning people’ are on the US side and it’s American citizens that are being warned not to use or enjoy the National Parks…I have friends that can see the illegals crossing and can only sit on their patio with a side arm or rifle in reach. plus 2 Dobermans
      These ‘tours’ the legislators take are in broad daylight to ‘walled’ areas..NOT to the open badlands or mountain passes. Our borders are a festering sore and the poison is spreading across the country.
