(CNSNews.com) - U.S. Border Patrol agents say they have detained an illegal alien who's racked up 37 criminal convictions in the United States.
"Due to the suspect’s numerous criminal convictions, he was processed for an Administrative Removal and will be removed to Mexico," said the announcement from Customs and Border Patrol.
Police in Rochester, N.Y. arrested the man on Saturday, July 20. They called the Border Patrol for assistance after the suspect gave three different names to a Rochester police officer.
Agents determined that the suspect was in the United States illegally, and a check of the database showed that he has 37 convictions, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, on charges such as narcotics violations, assault on a federal officer, burglary and robbery.
A spokesman for the Buffalo CBP sector told CNSNews.com that the suspect's first conviction came in 1982; the most recent was in 2007. Border Patrol says it first learned of the man on Saturday. Continue reading via CNS News...
