Texas authorities say they arrested a suspected human smuggler from Mexico who has already been caught illegally present in the U.S. on at least 13 prior occasions.
On Thursday, Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) troopers and Border Patrol agents encountered a group of illegal aliens in the Rio Grande Valley.
After rounding them up, troopers discovered the man allegedly responsible for guiding them across the border had already been busted more than a dozen times on U.S. soil.
“Members of the TxDPS Brush Team & USBP K9 tracked & arrested a smuggling foot guide hiding inside a drainage pipe who smuggled 3 illegal immigrants by raft across the Rio Grande in Mission,” TxDPS spokesman Lt. Christ Olivarez explained in a statement.
“Romaldo Lopez Sanchez, 28, Veracruz, MX, was charged & jailed for felony human smuggling. It was confirmed that he had 13 previous apprehensions for illegal entry.”
Lt. Olivarez included footage of voice messages exchanged between Sanchez and his ‘supervisors’ in Mexico being played back on a phone.
“I’m here on top of the wall. I’m just waiting for them to leave so I can pass through the rear. Right now, when they move, I’ll pass with one,” a voice presumably belonging to Sanchez can be heard saying.
U.S. authorities continue to apprehend illegal aliens who have already been caught before, many of whom committed serious crimes while in the country before being removed and reentering.
Last weekend, two male illegal aliens with “alarming felony convictions” were arrested in Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector.
“One for 2nd Degree Murder and Attempted Murder, and the other for Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Both face federal prosecution,” Tucson Sector Chief John R. Modlin announced this week.
On Tuesday, Border Patrol agents in Texas caught two convicted child sex predators who illegally reentered the U.S.
Also on Tuesday, TxDPS troopers arrested a man for guiding illegal aliens into the U.S. and discovered he was wanted for murder in Mexico.
