United States Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro station apprehended a dangerous gang member attempting to make an illegal entry into the United States Saturday. Border Patrol agents observed the man, later identified as 26-year-old Francisco Javier Lupian-Flores, a Mexican national as he entered the United States illegally from Mexico. Agents arrested Flores without incident 29 miles west of the downtown Calexico Port of Entry. Flores was transported to the El Centro Border Patrol station, where it was revealed he was an active member of the “Surenos” criminal street gang out of San Mateo County, California with an extensive criminal and immigration history. Flores is in Border Patrol custody and will be presented for prosecution on charges for re-entry of an illegal alien after being previously removed from the United States.
