RAYMONDVILLE, Texas -- Two illegal immigrants from Mexico who were charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent in front of his family in Texas have been arrested and deported numerous times, police sources told FoxNews.com.
One suspect has been arrested no fewer than four times for entering the U.S. illegally, according to federal court records. The other has been deported twice after entering the U.S. illegally, sources said.
Gustavo Tijerina, 30, and Ismael Hernandez, 40, were arraigned Tuesday afternoon inside the Willacy County jail library. They were ordered held without bail after being charged with capital murder of a peace officer, attempted murder, and a variety of lesser charges.
The pair, who have been living in Texas illegally, confessed after being interviewed multiple times Monday to killing Border Patrol agent Javier Vega Jr. in front of his wife and two kids and his parents Sunday night while they were fishing in Santa Monica, Sheriff Larry Spence told FoxNews.com.
They finally confessed to the robbery and indicated they knew they had killed someone, but did not know it was an off-duty Border Patrol agent, Spence said in an interview in his office Tuesday morning.
"They do now," he said.
When asked how the suspects reacted when they learned the victim was a Border Patrol agent, Spence said, "shock and concern."
The sheriff said the two suspects were likely connected to cartels or other criminal gangs.

Wall. Blindfold (or not). Bullets.
“When asked how the suspects reacted when they learned the victim was a Border Patrol agent, Spence said, ‘shock and concern.’”
I somehow doubt they are concerned but if so, I guess they are not scared of killing regular folks.
What you said.
They were concerned about receiving the death penalty.
Hang them near the border, preferably next to a well-travelled route, and leave their bodies for a good, long while as a message to others.
That's no reason to get all judgmental.
Anyone can make a mistake.
They're simply trying to escape from gang warfare in their own countries.
First of all, my condolences to this brave border patrol agent..secondly, will the media, yes including Fox News, please stop calling these scum of the earth “Immigrants” they are NOT I repeat NOT immigrants..they are CRIMINAL SCUM every single one of them
Deport them using a Catapult

I’m sure they’ll be back in time for the election
a Tyburn Hill scenario comes to mind...
So an illegal can shoot an immigration cop and only get deported multipel times...
A citizen shoots a cop and is promptly executed....
Someone needs to tell Jessie Jackson about this unfair target of inner city thugs when the thugs from the south can get away with a lot more....
” One suspect has been arrested no fewer than four times for entering the U.S. illegally,”
But we don’t need a fence......
The cartels despise Mexican American border patrol agents. They consider them to be race traitors. That is probably why the agent was executed in front of his family.
This is sick, and could have been avoided if they would just stop them from coming, instead of helping them get here and providing for them upon arrival.
Return them via a plane tot he country fo their origin....
But don’t land or slow down the plane....
A trebuchet is much better. Especially if you tie them by the neck...................
