EL PASO, Texas – For the second time in as many days, U.S. Border Patrol agents in El Paso Sector apprehended a convicted murderer attempting to make an illegal entry into the United States.
During the afternoon of November 8, an agent assigned to the El Paso Border Patrol Station arrested Jose Jesus Murillo-Rodriguez, a 46-year-old Mexican National and convicted murderer, attempting illegal entry into the United States.
The article goes on to state the following:
In December 1992, Murillo was sentenced to 40 years in prison by a court in Cook County, Illinois, after being convicted of two counts of murder and a single count of attempted murder. He was ordered removed from the U.S. in November 2010.
After his capture last Friday, Murillo was remanded to the El Paso County Detention Facility to await prosecution.
“Every day, criminal aliens attempt to illegally enter the United States between the ports of entry, often concealing themselves among families or taking a role of a parent with a child during this humanitarian crisis,” said El Paso Border Patrol Sector Interim Chief Gloria Chavez. “The men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol are our first line of defense in identifying these criminals further protecting every city, county, and community across our nation.”
Based on the information the Border Patrol provided, Murillo would have been 19 years old when he was sentenced in 1992 for killing two people and attempting to kill a third person in Illinois.
Border Patrol agents from El Paso Sector, @CBPWestTexas arrested an illegal alien w/ a conviction for 2 counts of murder and 1 count of attempted murder out of Illinois as he attempted to reenter the US.
This is why border security is so important.

The day before, on Nov. 7, Border Patrol agents caught another Mexican national sneaking into the U.S. who had also been arrested for murder in 1986 in Chicago. He has already been deported twice since serving his 24-year sentence for the 1986 murder. Read the press release from the CBP website below:
EL PASO, Texas – On November 7, a U.S. Border Patrol agent assigned to the Ysleta Border Patrol Station detained Miguel Marines-Patino, a Mexican National and convicted murderer, attempting illegal entry into the United States.
The agent, while performing assigned line-watch duties south of the Padres Overpass, arrested Marines-Patino approximately two miles west of the Ysleta Port of Entry. At the Ysleta Border Patrol Station, agents identified Marines-Patino (aka “Pedro Rodriguez-Ruiz”) and discovered his immigration and criminal history. In July 1986, Marines-Patino was arrested for murder by police in Chicago, Illinois, resulting in a conviction with 24 years confinement. Marines-Patino has been previously removed from the U.S. on two occasions, the last one being to Mexico on March 16, 2017, through Brownsville, Texas.
Federal authorities in El Paso filed a federal criminal complaint this morning charging Marines-Patino with illegal re-entry after deportation. Upon conviction, Marines-Patino faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Marines-Patino remains in federal custody pending a detention hearing expected to occur next week in U.S. Magistrate Court in El Paso.
He served 24-years in prison for the 1986 murder but was found illegally re-entering the United States near the Ysleta Port of Entry on Thursday. https://t.co/
