Sanctuary California Rapist Arrested Re-Entering U.S. from Mexico


Border Patrol agents arrested a Mexican national previously deported for a rape conviction in a California county with sanctuary policies.

Agents assigned to the Tucson Sector discovered a man in the desert near Sasabe, Arizona, on Saturday afternoon. The man illegally crossed the border. After arresting the man, agents took him to the Tucson Station for processing. During a records investigation, agents determined the identity of the man to be Juan Sotelo-Carasco, a 40-year-old Mexican national, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials. Further checking revealed that a court in Contra Costa County, California, convicted Cotelo-Carasco in 2016 for rape. Immigration officials subsequently deported the man.

Contra Costa County is listed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) as a sanctuary county.

He now faces new criminal charges for felony criminal immigration violations.
