Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Arizona, arrested a previously convicted child sex offender on Tuesday after he illegally re-entered the United States near Sasabe. Sasabe is a small populated place adjacent to the U.S./Mexico border and next to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge.

It was while Border Patrol agents were processing Moises Bautista-Ortiz, 31, a Mexican national, they did a check of his records and found that he had a previous conviction in Maricopa County, Arizona, of child molestation in January 2013 and given life probation. After being processed for immigration violations, he now faces for illegal re-entry as a felon. If convicted, he will probably be placed in a federal prison.

According to a press released from the Border Patrol, all persons apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal immigrants with criminal histories are positively identified.
