EDINBURG, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley arrested three sex offenders and a member of a notorious gang.

On Monday, McAllen agents working near McAllen, Texas, arrested a Mexican national whose record checks revealed a prior arrest in Pharr, Texas, for Aggravated sexual assault. The man received 10 years probation.

On Tuesday, Weslaco agents responded to a call for assistance from the San Juan Police Department (SJPD). Upon arrival, agents interviewed a subject detained by (SJPD) and determined the Mexican national to be in the country illegally. During processing, record checks revealed an arrest by the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office for sexual assault of a child.

That same day, McAllen agents working near Hidalgo, Texas, arrested a Salvadoran national after he entered the United States illegally. During processing, agents observed multiple tattoos linking him to the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang. Additional record checks confirmed the man is a member of the dangerous gang.

On Wednesday, Kingsville agents working at the checkpoint arrested a U.S. citizen after a failed human smuggling attempt. Record checks revealed an arrest in Houston, Texas, for aggravated sexual assault of a child.
