US Customs and Border Patrol agents arrest 22 wanted fugitive criminals in Texas sweep

The Epoch Times reported this week that 22 wanted fugitives had been arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents in recent days.

According to the Times, those taken into custody included one person who stands accused of injuring a child, while another faces charges of domestic violence. Others who were apprehended were wanted on charges of burglary, drug possession, larceny, and sexual assault against a minor.

Found and arrested

The individuals taken into custody were all reported to have been apprehended at various points in Texas along the U.S.–Mexico border, where thousands of illegal immigrants continue to attempt to gain entry into the United States.

“CBP is committed to helping find and arresting these wanted persons attempting to evade justice,” CBP El Paso director of field operations Hector Mancha said in a statement on the arrests, according to the Times.

“We are members of the communities we serve and have a professional and personal interest in stopping any and all violations,” Mancha added.

“Humanitarian crisis”

The mass apprehensions come as a surge of migrants are attempting to cross the border, with many of them being unaccompanied migrant children, Fox News reports. Over 100,000 illegal immigrants were detained in the month of February alone.

Texas is among the states being hardest hit by the growing crisis, and Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has pledged to devote resources to addressing the issue.

“Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans,” Abbott said earlier this month, according to The Epoch Times.

“We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis,” the Republican governor added, referencing a recent push to deploy state-level law enforcement resources, including National Guard troops, to assist with controlling the escalating border crisis situation.

Trump responds

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump has not held back in criticizing how his successor has handled the tense situation on America’s southern border.

“We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud, and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers, and human traffickers,” Trump said last week, according to Fox News.

“The Wall, despite horrendous Democratic delays, would have easily been finished by now, and is working magnificently,” the former president insisted. “Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!”

  1. My family lives in Texas right off of I35 which runs from Laredo, TX to Canada. It is the highway for the cartel to smuggle and sell their poison throughout the U.S. What Biden is doing is absolutely wrong and causing harm to everyone who lives in Texas and other states that are having to deal with the illegals coming across the border. They won the election because they cheated, but they are allowing these people to come into our country where the American people not the politicians will have to take care of them. What the heck is wrong with the Democrats. I think Satan is running our government now.

  6. They should go to every city & State to remove all of the criminals who enter the USA Illegally the USA has it’s own problems we do not need any American paid elected official who won legally or Illegally to add to the endangerment of the USA ‘s problems created by negligent parents or negligent elected officials who spitefully enjoy destroying American families, lives & futures.

  7. All those counties at the border should put them on a bus and drive them back down to SAmerica. A lot cheaper than keeping them in holding lots/bldgs. Just DO IT! Worry about the stolen administration later.

  8. Joe Biden is the crisis treasonous president fraudulent election.Bring back my president and deport Joe Biden the fraud back to China I’m sure Hunter can get him a deal on a place in China and all the slaves he want he’s all about the workers you know

  9. Ole Joe isn’t very popular, i’m sure some stupid people are wondering why, what, what for, if these policys arn’t stoped and changed, what happens to our country is we won’t know if we don’t stop. How at the moment we are suppose to be a country of laws, but the Democratic party leaders don’t see that their intent is total power and unlimted spending, you know what that brings look at South America, Africa, Europe. all the unrest is world wide. Our Lord said it is written in the Bible I Shall Return.

  10. All who come across the border illegally should be given a fast ride to DC and dropped off at the White House and Capital. Let the the government deal with the problem of what to do with them. Or drop them at Pelosi’s and Schiff’s house in CA. “Government” does not mean those serving can do as they damn well please. The government officials work for WE THE PEOPLE!!! WE THE PEOPLE SAID “” NO “” !!! Therefore, they brought the illegals in the country, now let them take care of them.

    1. Nix. An easier method would be to dock a troop transport in the Gulf at the eastern end of the Texas border. As they are caught coming in, round them up, tattoo a small ‘I’ on one wrist, and stuff them on the transport. Feed them minimally, and when full, sail down to the southern-most gulf town inside the Mexican border and off-load them, with, perhaps, a sandwich —
      Do this only after advising them that we have pictures, blood type, and fingerprints and if they are ever seen within our borders with either the tat or a scar where it’d been removed, they will not be seen again.
      Bet it’d only take a month of this to demonstrate intention, and we’d have no illegals. The alternative is to bumble around and rant and rave. How’s that working out?

  11. Insert an RFID tag so far under their skin that it is dangerous for them to try to rmove it. Then send them to Siberia. Goal met ~ they want out of their homeland country…bingo there you go! Hell, and they can stay there as long as they like!! The RFID tag would give them away if they ever attempted to come back to the USA. Immediately they would be given their LAST rights.

  12. It is past time to end the democrat/communist control of this country. They all need to be tried for treason and then given the choice to return to China or be executed.
