Border Patrol Agents Apprehend Registered Sex Offender Among Group Of 11

YUMA – A convicted sex offender, Jose Shul-Cruz, was just one member of a group of 11 illegal aliens intercepted by Border Patrol agents in the desert south of Dateland.

Last Sunday, Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents assigned to the Wellton station encountered the group at approximately 1:00 p.m., according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). A record checks revealed that Shul-Cruz, a 36-year-old Mexican national, was a convicted felon and registered sex offender.

Shul-Cruz had convictions for sexual assault, corporal injury of a spouse or cohabitant and disorderly conduct. He also had seven previous Border Patrol apprehensions.

“Keeping these criminals out of our communities is critical,” said Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Chris T. Clem. “This is another great example of why border security is national security.”

Shul-Cruz will be prosecuted for illegal re-entry after previously being deported from the United States.
