At the station, criminal record checks identified Ore-Quispe, a 43-year-old Peruvian national, as a previously removed sex offender. He was arrested in 2013 by the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office in Idaho for multiple counts of sexual abuse of a child.
In 2015, Ore-Quispe was convicted of Felony Rape of a Child under 16 years old and sentenced to 6 to 14 years confinement. At the time, the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office and the Blaine County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, which jointly investigated the case, alleged that Ore-Quispe had a five-year relationship with the girl that started when she was 10.
An “immigration detainer” was issued against Ore-Quispe requiring that he was turned over to the federal agency once released from state custody. Thus, he was previously removed from the United States in 2020.
An additional two other adult migrants who entered the country illegally were arrested by Fort Brown Border Patrol Station agents working in Brownsville.
