An illegal alien wanted for a child sex crime was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Grand Forks, ND, according to a Monday press release.
“The arrest took place Friday morning, when agents assigned to the Pembina Station encountered an illegal alien during a targeted enforcement activity in Grand Forks,” the press release said. “Agents arrested the man and transported him to the Pembina Station for immigration and criminal history screening.”
As The Rundown News reported, CBP in norther border regions have been particularly busy over the past couple of years, as illegal border crossings and activity near the Canadian border has increased. Grand Forks is not far south of the United States’ border with Canada.
“During processing, Agents discovered the 41 year old Guatemalan man had an active warrant for sexual assault of a minor from Larimer County, Colorado,” according to the press release. “Agents confirmed the subject’s identity and warrant after conferring with Larimer County officials.”
The man’s name was not released.
The arrest is also part of a disturbing trend of illegal aliens and foreign nationals being arrested for sex crimes against children. This site has chronicled those stories at great length.
Monday, The Rundown News reported on an illegal alien who was sentenced to just six days in jail for raping a child, only to be deported and then subsequently caught attempting to re-enter the country.
CBP’s Acting Chief Patrol Agent William Maddocks was pleased with the arrest of the Guatemalan national.
“This arrest is a great example of multi-jurisdictional cooperation working together to remove a child predator from the streets of the United States,” he said.
The man is awaiting extradition to Colorado, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has lodged a detainer against him. He will be transferred into their custody when his legal proceedings are completed.
