San Diego Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended a Mexican murder fugitive who illegally crossed the border with a group of migrants.
A San Diego Sector scope operator observed a group of six migrants climbing over the primary border fence near Imperial Beach, California, on March 8, officials reported this week. The migrants then cut a hole in the secondary border barrier and climbed through the hole, according to information obtained from San Diego Sector Border Patrol officials.
Border Patrol agents caught up with the six illegal aliens a short distance north of the border barrier. An immigration interview revealed the migrants came to the U.S. from Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras and had no documentation allowing legal presence in the United States, officials stated. The agents arrested the six men on immigration violations and transported them to the Border Patrol station for identification and a biometric background investigation.
