On Tuesday, at approximately 3:30 in the morning, agents assigned to the Clint Border Patrol Station said they found foot prints heading north from the border fence indicating the illegal entry of six individuals. Agents, utilizing both ATVs, as well as old school tracking skills, located and apprehended six individuals attempting to conceal themselves within a muddy irrigation canal. The subjects, who admitted to having just illegally crossed the international border, were all placed under arrest and transported to the Clint Border Patrol Station. Agents said they later learned one of the subjects, identified as 32-year old Jose Garcia Samaniego from Mexico, had a felony conviction of 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a Minor out of Hastings, Nebraska. All six subjects are being processed for removal proceedings.
