YUMA, Ariz. — Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a deported child molester who entered the U.S. with family units on Wednesday evening.
Yuma station agents near the Colorado River apprehended a group of six migrants near County 23rd Street and the Salinity Canal around 10:45 p.m.
CBP says previously deported Mexican national 41-year-old Juan Rojas-Rodriguez was convicted of sex with a minor under 14-years-old in California back 1996.
Officials say Rojas-Rodriguez was deported in 2008 after being located at the Lompoc Federal Correction Institution in California.
CBP says "Rojas-Rodriguez is charged with re-entry as a previously deported aggravated felon."
The other migrants are being processed for immigration violations.
