Border Patrol Agents Arrest Sex Offender

DEMING, N.M. – Vigilance paid off this week for U.S. Border Patrol Agents in Deming after they arrested a sex offender who was attempting illegal entry in southern Luna County, New Mexico.

On June 23, 2010, agents assigned to the Deming Station were patrolling New Mexico State Road 9 near mile marker 84 when two subjects were observed by the Mobile Surveillance System walking north from the U.S./Mexico international border. The agents approached the subjects, began consensual conversation, and later questioned them as to their citizenship. One of the subjects later identified himself as 29-year old Jose Suarez-Ramirez, who admitted to being a citizen and national of Mexico with no immigration documentation. Suarez-Ramirez was taken to the station and entered into the automated biometric system revealing a prior extensive criminal history to include: Burglary, Possession of Controlled Substance, Conspiracy, Larceny, and Criminal Sexual Penetration 1st Degree (Child under 13). Suarez-Ramirez is currently being detained pending prosecution.
