29 year old sex offender, Rudy Chirinois-Hernandez arrested by US Border Patrol agents
Agents patrolling the desert south of Sells encountered Rudy Chirinos-Hernandez. Records checks revealed Hernandez was convicted of Sexual Assault against a child in Dallas, Texas, in 2012. Hernandez was sentenced to two years in prison for this felony offense.
Hernandez was initially brought to a mobile command center for expulsion under Title 42 authority. Criminal records checks revealed Hernandez’s dangerous criminal past. Therefore, prosecution for re-entry of a convicted felon was sought instead of immediate expulsion to Mexico.
Title 42 executive actions allow agents to limit the further introduction of COVID-19 by expelling certain individuals who enter the United States illegally as quickly as possible while continuing our border security operations.
