Embedded with the group was Marcos Velasquez-Taperio, a Guatemalan citizen who was convicted of sexual assault crimes in 2009. He was deported after serving nearly three years in prison.

“I am proud of our Border Patrol agents for making this arrest,” the chief patrol agent said Tuesday. “Deported sexual predators seeking to illegally enter the U.S. will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
