U.S. Border Patrol Arrests Felon Convicted of Homicide http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/newsroom/news_releases/local/11152011.xml Tuesday, November 15, 2011 Tucson, Arizona A male Nicaraguan national previously convicted of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle was among a group of individuals apprehended last night near the city of Why, Ariz., by the Tucson Sector Border Patrol, a component of the Customs and Border Protections Joint Field Command-Arizona. Isaac Gutierrez-Blandon, 32, was among the group apprehended by Ajo Station agents for illegally entering the United States. During processing, agents found that he was arrested by the Waupaca County, Wis., Sheriffs Department in July 2007, convicted later that month, and sentenced to six years in prison. His criminal record was discovered using the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, a vital tool that ensures individuals with criminal histories are identified and penalties are upheld to the full extent of the law. Gutierrez-Blandon now faces federal prosecution for re-entry of an aggravated felon followed by a formal removal from the country. In addition to enforcing immigration laws, the Border Patrol contributes to a safer America by identifying and removing dangerous criminals from the country.
