( -- U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents in Eagle Pass, Texas arrested a previously deported MS-13 gang member after he illegally re-entered the United States by crossing the Rio Grande River.

As the CBP said in a press release, "Border Patrol agents arrested a Honduran national near Eagle Pass shortly after he made an illegal entry by crossing the Rio Grande River" on Dec. 18.

"Records checks revealed that he had been previously deported and that he is a confirmed member of the notorious MS-13 gang, a violent trans-national criminal organization, operating in many parts of the United States," said the CBP.

The illegal alien's order of removal will be reinstated and he now faces a charge of "Reentry After Deportation" (8 USC 1326), which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. 

“Border Patrol agents routinely encounter dangerous individuals while on duty securing our borders,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak in the CBP statement. “The men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol are committed to stopping any threat to the safety and security of our nation.”
