May 30, 2019
It has been an interesting last week in the month of May 2019 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
This week we take a look at for your radio listeners a criminal illegal alien man who has been charged with illegal entry into the United States of America (USA) who has a criminal history in the State of Washington.
According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) press release dated May 9, 2019 titled “Convicted Sex Offender Arrested by Border Patrol” CBP agents arrested convicted sex offender Bernardino Sanchez-Perea, age 30, a Mexican national, 17.5 miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and took him into custody for alleged illegal entry into USA:
“US Customs and
Convicted Sex Offender Arrested by Border Patrol
Release Date: May 9, 2019
CALEXICO, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested a previously deported sex offender Wednesday morning.
On May 8, at around 10:50 a.m., agents assigned to the El Centro Station observed a man suspected of illegally entering the U.S. approximately 17.5 miles west of the Calexico West Port of Entry. Agents responded to the area and arrested the man and transported him to the El Centro station for immigration and criminal history screening.
Border Patrol agents conducted records checks, which revealed that the man, later identified as Bernardino Sanchez-Perea, a 30-year-old Mexican national, had a conviction for sex with a minor three years or younger on Sep. 12, 2010 out of Skagit County, Washington. He served 15 months in jail. Additionally, Sanchez was previously removed from the United States in 2011.
Sanchez is being held in federal custody pending further criminal prosecution.” – CBP Public Affairs.
Wanting additional information on immigration status of Bernardino Sanchez-Perea, I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Ralph DeSio with a series of questions.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Public Affairs Officer Ralph DeSio forwarded my questions to Anthony S. Garcia, Border Patrol Agent, Public Affairs Office, assigned to the El Centro Sector.
Here are the questions I sent to U.S. CBP Public Affairs that were answered by CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia on Thursday, May 16, 2019:
Was Bernardino Sanchez-Perea illegally present in the USA when he was convicted of the sex crime against the child?
“Yes.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.
Is CBP the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency responsible for removal of criminal aliens from the country if the crime they have been convicted of committing occurs within 100 miles of the USA border?
“The removal of criminal aliens from prison/jail falls within the responsibility of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE anywhere within the U.S.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.
Skagit County, Washington is in northern part of the state, was CBP the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency that took into Bernardino Sanchez-Perea custody after he completed his 15 month jail sentence for the sex crime against the child?
“ICE took custody.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.
Was Bernardino Sanchez-Perea incarcerated at the Skagit County Jail or in the Washington Department of Corrections when he was picked up for removal from the USA?
“Washington DOC-Shelton Corrections.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.
Was CBP the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency that removed Bernardino Sanchez-Perea from the USA in 2011?
“ICE removed the subject.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.
Mexican national Bernardino Sanchez-Perea is an example of the thousands of previously deported criminal aliens that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehend annually who try to illegally reenter the USA.
