Texas border patrol arrest felony immigrant child rapist Francisco Rodriguez-Garcia re-entering the US

U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station arrested a convicted sex offender, Aug. 25.

“Criminals will keep trying to enter further into the United States and make their way into our communities,” said Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “This is how our men and women of the Border Patrol keep our communities safe from predators like this.”

Agents apprehended Francisco W. Rodriguez-Garcia, 35, a citizen of Mexico, after he entered the United States illegally. During processing, records checks revealed that he was convicted in 2005 of felony aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14, in Garland, and served nine years in prison. He was deported to Mexico in 2014.

As a convicted felon, he faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – re-entry after deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

All individuals apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks utilizing multiple databases including the use of biometrics to ensure those with criminal history are positively identified regardless of their immigration status.
