Agents arrested the gang member near Ajo, Arizona after he entered into United States illegally. During processing, agents identified the man as 30-year-old Wuilson Lazo-Ramos, a Honduran national with MS-13 gang tattoos and a felony conviction for weapons misconduct in Maricopa County. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years probation for his weapons conviction. 

Lazo told agents he travelled with the migrant caravan through dangerous parts of Mexico for his safety, then crossed the border illegally because he has a criminal record in the United States.

Lazo is in federal custody pending prosecution for criminal immigration violations.

All persons apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal aliens with criminal histories are positively identified.
