U.S. Border Patrol Agents working the El Paso sector made several arrests of undocumented immigrants crossing the border, including two men with alleged gang ties.

Border Patrol Agents from Clint arrested three people on July 29. Once in custody, agents said one of the men, Oscar Fabricio Aviles, admitted to being an inactive MS-13 gang member. Agents report Aviles, who is from El Salvador, was deported from the U.S. for numerous crimes he committed while living in Boston, Massachusetts, including a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon.

   

Additionally, agents near Ft. Hancock arrested a man in need of medical attention after a passerby waived down agents for help. Javier Buelna-Contreras, 21, was transported to Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso for extreme dehydration.

During a conversation with an agent, Contreras allegedly admitted to being an active “Paisa” gang member.  Contreras was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility for illegal entry.
