Border Patrol agents in Texas nab 10 convicted sex offenders crossing the border in a week
Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector in Texas arrested 10 convicted sex offenders in a single week as they tried to get into the U.S. illegally -- the latest batch of criminals nabbed by agents at the border. The arrests were made between May 17 and24, Border Patrol said in a statement, with nationals from Honduras and Mexico among those arrested.
The aircrew landed the chopper and attended to the woman, helping to control her bleeding from a head wound – even working through the border fence. The woman told them she had been shot. Mexican authorities later took over at the scene and transported her to a nearby hospital.
"This is an excellent example of the type of good work that can be done through strong partnerships and the availability of AMO and Border Patrol Agents actively patrolling our Nation’s borders", James Schuetzler, Director of Yuma’s Air Branch, said in a statement. "That combined with mature working relationships with our Mexican law enforcement partners, help stop what was heading toward a very ugly outcome. We could not have done this without strong support from all of our partners."

The arrest comes as agents have been scrambling to deal with a continued surge of migration at the border, much of it being assisted or capitalized on by smugglers and other criminal groups. The Biden administration recently announced an operation to target smugglers facilitating illegal migration across the border.
The announcement comes after CBP announced that more than 150were taken into custody in in a 24-hour period over weekend following two alleged human smuggling attempts.
