Caught Again: Dangerous Gang Member Deported 10 Times Since 1993 Arrested in Tucson

The United States Customs and Border Protection agency arrested a dangerous illegal alien and member of the notorious “18th Street Gang” in Arizona on Tuesday evening, according to a press release.

Arizona CBP reports that “51-year-old Hector Gustavo Montoya, a member of the dangerous 18th Street gang in Los Angeles,” was apprehended this week near Nogales while agents were patrolling the border. Montoya has been arrested by American authorities on numerous occasions, “most recently in 2016 when he was convicted for drug smuggling offenses. He served a 24-month prison sentence for that conviction and was removed from the country after confinement.”


Montoya has an illustrious history with repeated illegal entry into the country. In what some politicians may describe as “an act of love,” the 18th street gang member has been deported from America “more than 10 times for immigration violations dating back to 1993, as well as multiple arrests for crimes committed in California.” Montoya hails from Honduras and will be held in custody by federal authorities.
