EL PASO, Texas -- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers deported a convicted sexual predator to Mexico on Tuesday, ICE officials announced Thursday.
ICE agents turned Inosente Borunda Hernandez, 34, over to Mexican authorities at the Ysleta port of entry on Tuesday.
Borunda Hernandez, a Mexican citizen and former U.S. permanent resident, was convicted in Perryton, Texas, on June 28, 2007 of aggravated sexual assault for committing indecency with a child by sexual contact, a first-degree felony, officials said.
He was sentenced to seven years probation. He was intercepted in October 2007 at the Presidio, Texas, port of entry after he applied for admission into the United States, officials said.
Officers found he had the previous criminal conviction, and Borunda Hernandez was paroled into the U.S. To face deportation proceedings. On June 25, 2008, an immigration judge ordered Borunda Hernandez removed to Mexico.
He had been detained at the El Paso Processing Center until Tuesday when he was deported, officials said.
ICE encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE, which is staffed around the clock by investigators.
Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 or www.cybertipline.com.
