Border Patrol Arrests Yet Another Sex Offender; And Leftists Would Say Migrants Aren’t Dangerous
Border Patrol Agents Arrest Convicted Sex Offender
TUCSON, Ariz. – Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended a man with a violent criminal history after he entered the U.S. illegally near San Miguel southwest of Tucson Tuesday evening.
During processing, agents conducted a records check on Euder Eizeo Gomez-Fuentes, a 23-year-old Guatemalan national, and learned he was convicted in February 2018 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for 3rd degree sexual conduct with a child under the age of 16.
Gomez-Fuentes will remain in federal custody pending a court decision on criminal felony immigration charges.
All individuals apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal aliens with criminal histories are positively identified.
Federal law allows agents to charge individuals by complaint, a method that allows the filing of charges for criminal activity without inferring guilt. An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials welcome assistance from the community. Individuals can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol and remain anonymous by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free. Reporting illicit activity could result in saving someone’s life.

Border Patrol Agents Assaulted by Illegal Aliens
TUCSON, Ariz. – Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents were assaulted during two separate incidents west of Tucson Tuesday.
The first assault occurred when agents disrupted a human smuggling attempt south of Three Points. While attempting to arrest four male suspects, one of the men became combative.
The 25 year-old Guatemalan national resisted arrest by throwing dirt at an agent’s face, and by swinging his belt and affixed buckle, attempting to strike the agent. After a struggle, the man was handcuffed by assisting agents and placed in a service vehicle, where he again assaulted another agent by spitting in his face.
Two illegal aliens from Mexico and Guatemala, along with an Arizona man, previously arrested by Border Patrol for smuggling, were arrested during this incident.
Later that evening, west of Three Points, another Border Patrol Agent was assaulted as he attempted to arrest an illegal alien. The agent, accompanied by a canine partner, tracked the man to a desolate desert area, where a 36-year-old Guatemalan national became combative, striking the agent several times. The agent eventually made the arrest by subduing and handcuffing the man.
Both combative men will face criminal charges for assaulting a federal agent. The illegal alien responsible for the second assault, was previously removed from the country in May for immigration violations.
One agent was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, and was released.
