Border Patrol agents in New Mexico are holding an illegal immigrant sex offender after he illegally reentered the U.S. across the southern border.
Customs and Border Protection revealed Friday that earlier this week Border Patrol Agents from the Santa Teresa Station intercepted five individuals climbing through a hole in the border fence.
The agents chased the five subjects, finding them as they tried to hide in desert brush. One of the five illegal immigrants was Mario Perez-Contrera who had, what CBP described as, an “extensive criminal history.”
Perez-Contrera’s criminal history included a felony “Distributing via Electronic Communication Material Relates/Describes Sexual Conduct to a Child” and a prior conviction for sexual assault in Hastings, Minnesota. Both took place in 2012.
