JACUMBA, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a convicted child molester after he allegedly crossed into the U.S. illegally in rural East County, officials said Thursday.

Agents were patrolling the border near Jacumba at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when they observed a man cross the border. They caught up with him and questioned him.

The agents ran a routine record check on the 37-year-old Mexican citizen and discovered that he had been previously deported. He had also been convicted of child molestation and tampering with a witness in Washington State, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said.

The man, whose name was not released, was taken into custody and will be prosecuted for re-entering the U.S. after being deported.

    Mexico seems to have an unusually high number of pedophiles. I don't think this activity is against the law in that corrupt country, so they go right ahead with their crimes when they get here. When any illegal is deported they need a tattoo on their foreheads designating them as illegals. Then, the next time they waltz in, they can go straight to ten years at hard labor. Perhaps building a fence? Sounds fair to me.
