The first felon, a previously deported 40-year-old Mexican national with convictions of aggravated battery and burglary in 2001, in Idaho Falls, Idaho was apprehended with another illegal alien at approximately 6:35 a.m. on Saturday. He is now being prosecuted for re-entry after deportation.
The duo illegally entered the country 17 miles east of San Luis.
On Sunday at approximately 7:15 p.m., , a convicted sex offender, was apprehended with a group of seven illegal aliens near Andrade, California.
The 47-year-old male Mexican national has an extensive criminal history, including a conviction of lewd and lascivious acts with a child in 1995. He stated he was attempting to return Los Angeles where that crime was committed. He is now being prosecuted for re-entry after deportation.
