Border Patrol agents in Arizona arrested a previously deported rapist after he illegally re-entered the U.S. from Mexico. Immigration officials deported the Salvadoran national in 2013 following a conviction in New York for second-degree rape.
Yuma Sector agents came upon an illegal immigrant while patrolling in the Andrade, California, area after he illegally crossed the border from Mexico Saturday night, about two miles east of the Andrade Port of Entry. The agents arrested and took him to the Yuma Station for processing and a biometric background check, according to Yuma Sector Border Patrol officials.
During processing, the agents identified the man as a Sogel Robles-Gonzalez, a 33-year-old previously deported criminal alien from El Salvador. Officials said the Salvadoran national received a conviction for second-degree rape in Suffolk County, New York, in 2009 and is a registered sex offender. Following his prison sentence, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers deported Robles-Gonalzez in 2013 via Phoenix International Airport, officials stated.
