Tucson, Arizona border agents have apprehended an illegal alien who had twice been convicted of sex crimes in Tennessee, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported Monday.

After the Guatemalan man was caught illegally re-entering the U.S., a background check revealed that, on two different occasions, he had been convicted of sex crimes, CBP reported:

"Saturday afternoon in the mountains west of Arivaca after he illegally entered the United States, While processing 42-year-old Artemio Raul Escobar-Ramirez, agents discovered he had been convicted in Tennessee for rape of a child in 2006, and aggravated sexual battery in 2008.

"Records indicate Escobar has extensive criminal history in the United States and was previously removed from the country in 2014 after incarceration for his crimes. He will be held in federal custody pending prosecution for criminal immigration violations, and re-entry of an aggravated felon.

"All individuals apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal immigrants with criminal histories are positively identified."
