Rio Grande Valley Sector agents assigned to the Falfurrias Station on February 22 located about 80 miles from the Texas-Mexico border came upon a Mexican national attempting to circumvent the immigration checkpoint located in the middle of Brooks County, Texas, according to information received from Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol officials. The agents apprehended the migrant and transported him to the Falfurrias Station where a biometric background investigation uncovered an extensive history of deportations and a criminal history that included convictions on drug charges and sexual assault.
That same day, agents assigned to the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station in the Tucson Sector arrested a Mexican national while patrolling the border near Naco, Arizona. The agents transported the man to the station for processing where identified him as 36-year-old Eloy Flores-Balbuena. A records check uncovered a 2013 felony conviction from a court in Liberty, Illinois, for battery. The court sentenced him to 176 days in jail and 12 months probation.
Falfurrias Station agents came upon a group of three illegal aliens who also attempted to circumvent the immigration checkpoint on Thursday.
