Around 4 p.m. Oct. 25, border officials arrested Jauregui at the Bridge of the Americas border crossing, according to the customs bureau. He was then turned over to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office to face charges in connection to the killing.

“CBP officers are diligently working to protect our nation from a wide variety of threats,” El Paso Director of Field Operations Hector A. Mancha said. “On a daily basis CBP officers identify and apprehend people who are being sought by law enforcement. Some seek sanctuary across the border but when they return to the U.S. history has shown that they will be stopped by CBP officers.”
