Reyes-Lopez had been previously convicted of Sex Trafficking of Children by Force , Fraud or Coercion and served 21 months in prison for the crime. She was subsequently ordered removed by an immigration Judge in August of this year. The 62-year old El Salvadoran citizen will be prosecuted for reentry after removal. Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim said , " This individual was a convicted felon who preyed on young , innocent children. The men and women of the U. S. Border Patrol are this country's first line of defense against threats like this."
