CBP arrested the 31-year-old Honduran, who was previously deported on June 2018.
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) A man who said he was part of the Central American migrant caravan illegally came into America and assaulted two U.S. Border Patrol agents and a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol pilot.
On Friday, Nov. 23, CBP arrested the 31-year-old Honduran, who was previously deported on June 2018. He also has many previous arrest records in Florida, CBP reported in a press release.
Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents followed the footprints of the illegal alien who had crossed the U.S. border near the Andrade, California port of entry. Agents requested backup and a Marine helicopter assisted in tracking the illegal alien.
After pursuing him for about a mile, agents found him by a tree, which he climbed to escape arrest. The illegal alien then lit the tree on fire and threw rocks at the CBP agents on the ground and in the helicopter.
He didn’t hit the agents or the helicopter, and no one was injured.
Eventually, he climbed down the tree and agents arrested him.
President Donald Trump said many people in the migrant caravan threaten the safety of American citizens.
