Calexico, CA -
El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents assigned to an area east of the city of Calexico, arrested a man who was a previously deported child rapist after entering the United States illegally Tuesday night.

Border Patrol agents on patrol encountered the man and after a brief interview determined the man was a citizen of Mexico who did not possess documents to allow him to remain in the United States legally.

Agents transported the man to the Calexico station to determine his identity. Records checks identified the man as Gregorio Olivarez-Aguilar, a citizen of Mexico. Records indicated that Olivarez was arrested and subsequently convicted on Jul. 14, 2014 in King County Washington for the kidnapping and rape of a child. Olivares was sentenced to 17 month to life in prison, with 26 to 50 months’ probation. Agents also discovered that Olivares was deported from the United States on Nov. 11, 2017.

“The U.S. Border Patrol will do everything within its power to ensure that criminal aliens that prey on our communities are either prosecuted or removed from the United States,” said Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim. “Cooperation with state and local law enforcement agencies helps us ensure that offenders like this, face consequences when trying to return to the United States and the communities they victimized.”
