The Border Patrol reported the arrest of 10 migrants previously convicted of sex offenses in the first six days of the new year. The migrants arrested with previous sex crimes, mostly related to children, occurred in seven of the nine southwest border sectors.

Migrants with previous convictions and formal removals face stiff penalties when caught again. The Border Patrol reported more than 60 such arrests in October and November alone.

On Thursday, Border Patrol agents in Douglas, Arizona, arrested Patricio Caravantes-Salgado. Their investigation revealed Caravantes, a Mexican national, was convicted of felony unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under the age of 16 in Orange County, California.
