Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended sex offender Jorge Perez-Diaz, 58, who illegally entered the United States early Monday morning April 26, 2021 in Yuma, AZ.

At approximately 2 a.m., an agent patrolling the desert east of the San Luis Port of Entry, encountered a migrant trying to evade detection. The migrant was arrested and taken to the Yuma station for further processing.

Record checks conducted on Jorge revealed felony convictions for lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor, for which he served time in the Idaho State Penitentiary, and re-entry into the U.S. following a prior removal.

Jorge’s most recent removal from the U.S. was March 22 through the Calexico, California Port of Entry. Jorge will face re-entry charges for his most recent apprehension by Yuma agents.
