Convicted Honduran Murderer Captured Illegally Re-entering the United States

 

EAGLE PASS, TX – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Del Rio Sector arrested an illegal alien convicted murderer on April 14.

“Our agents are doing a great job handling the increase in apprehensions while remaining focused on capturing these dangerous criminals,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Austin L. Skero II. “It’s important to remember those who attempt to evade detection do so for a reason.”

Agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested Luis Alonso Godines-Maldonado, 49, a citizen of Honduras, shortly after he illegally entered the United States. During processing, records checks revealed that Godines-Maldonado was convicted of murder in 2002, and was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment. Godines-Maldonado was most recently removed from the United States in 2017.

As a convicted felon, he faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – Re-entry After Deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Since the start of Fiscal Year 2021, Oct. 1, Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended 608 illegal aliens with criminal records, a 236 percent increase from the previous fiscal year.

I find this interesting, so if you are deported and come back into the United States and get caught, you will essentially be forced to stay here? After 17 years he is probably institutionalized to the point he feels more comfortable in than out, keeping him in prison is probably doing him a favor.
