A previously deported illegal alien has crossed the US-Mexico border again, under the direction of President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS), after being convicted of sexual assault on a fourth grade girl.
In February 2021, illegal alien Carlos Bartolo Rios of Mexico pleaded guilty to third-degree sexual conduct and exposing a minor to obscene material after a fourth-grade girl told law enforcement. that she had been repeatedly raped by Rios in North Charleston, South Carolina.
The girl said Rios told her not to “tell anyone” about the sexual assault.
After being sentenced to prison as part of his plea deal, Rios was arrested and deported to Mexico in March 2021 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
This month, Rios was arrested again by ICE agents in North Charleston after crossing the southern border and managing to evade Border Patrol agents, the Post and courier reported:
Rios told investigators after his Oct. 27 arrest that he returned to the United States in 2021 without inspection or approval, a source familiar with the investigation but not authorized to speak to the Post and Courier said. The source said ICE was not aware of any crimes committed by Rios since his return. He is not listed on any State or National Sex Offender Registry.
How the 32-year-old with an aggravated felony conviction entered the country was not immediately clear.
ICE launched the Sex Offender Arrest and Removal Operation as early as 2012 to prioritize the removal of non-citizens who have “demonstrated predatory behavior”.
Rios now faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of unlawful re-entry by an aggravated convicted felon.
The case is just the latest where convicted illegal alien criminals, with prior deportations, are increasingly crossing the US-Mexico border under the Biden administration. A few months ago, for example, five convicted sex offenders and 20 gang members were arrested crossing the border in a single week.
Since Biden took office, about 5.5 million cross-border commuters and illegal aliens have arrived at the southern border.
