On Thursday, U.S. Border Patrol agents working out of the Eagle Pass Station near Del Rio, along with an Eagle Pass police officer caught 51-year-old Hernan Alvarado-Velasquez, who has been deported multiple times over the last three decades.

During a records check, the agents discovered that Alvarado-Velasquez was most recently deported back to El Salvador on Oct. 8, 2013.

Alvarado-Velasquez's criminal activity in this country spans six states and includes convictions for assault and burglary, as well as much more serious crimes.

The Eagle Pass Business Journal reported:

Alvarado-Velasquez was arrested and convicted in 1994 in Arlington, Va. for assaulting a police officer. In 1997 he was convicted of homicide in Miami and sentenced to 10 years’ incarceration.

In a press release, Chief Border Patrol Agent, Del Rio Sector Rodolfo Karisch said:

Our encounter with this dangerous individual shows the type of environment agents and law enforcement officers deal with on a daily basis."

Alvarado-Velasquez has been charged with illegal re-entry after deportation, a felony, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

This arrest is the just latest example of how meaningless deportations have become due to a lack of border enforcement.

The American people are not only being placed at risk with dangerous foreign criminals entering this country at-will on a daily basis, but we are also being forced to pay for their incarceration and deportations, only to have them re-enter, often within days of their arrival back home.

In short, ours is no longer a nation of laws, but one of men...lawless, corrupt men.
