An increasing number of sex offenders are trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

Tucson News Now reports that Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Sector have arrested 46 sex offenders so far this fiscal year, compared to 69 last fiscal year.

Since March 1, agents arrested 10 sex offenders. Eight were from Mexico and one each from El Salvador and Honduras.

“Border Patrol agents encounter sex offenders, various people with criminal histories in their course of duty nearly every day,” said agent Adrienne Crowley, a spokesperson for the Tucson Sector.

“Border Patrol agents in Tucson Sector face various threats in the field,” Crowley said. “Every person they encounter potentially has a criminal history so we really don’t know what we’re working with until we bring that person in and run those records checks.  Agents are working every day to make our community safer…by getting those people off the streets.”
