U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents working in the Rio Grande Valley Sector caught five formerly deported undocumented criminals, some of which had been convicted of sex crimes against children sneaking in the country.

Officers also saved seven undocumented immigrants who had been abandoned by human smugglers in extreme temperatures.

Patrol agents in McAllen, Texas detained several illegals over the weekend near the Mexican border. Among those arrested were from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

CBP Agents discovered that five of the detained were felons, who had previously been deported from the U.S., had convictions for child molestation, sex with a minor, rape, statutory rape, and unlawful imprisonment.

These are a few the most recent cases of previously extradited violent criminals and sex offenders who have been free to return to the United States due to the open border policies of the Obama Administration. The men are currently facing possible prosecution for illegal re-entry by the United States Department of Justice.

Last weekend, Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue Unit (BORSTAR) agents saved seven undocumented individuals who were left to die by their human smuggler, also known as “coyotes,” in the heat of South Texas. The coyotes usually smuggle individuals around the Border Patrol checkpoint approximately 80 miles from the international boundary but will abandon anyone who falls behind because of illness, exhaustion, or injury.

One of the rescued was discovered severely dehydrated by BORSTAR officials. The man was provided with emergency first aid on the scene and then was airlifted to a hospital.

CBP officials issued a grave warning to people from other countries who are thinking about making the dangerous journey from Mexico to Texas.

According to Breitbart Texas, approximately 30 people have been discovered dead in Brooks County so far this year. Hot temperatures are anticipated to remain well above 100 degrees for the next several weeks, with very little chance of rain, making those making the dangerous journey even more susceptible to adverse outcomes.
