EL PASO, Texas – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents on Wednesday arrested a San Elizario, Texas, man who allegedly traveled to Mexico to have sex with a teenage girl in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico.

A federal grand jury indicted Gustavo Solis-Martinez, 35, on July 16 for traveling out of the country with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor, a federal offense that falls under the PROTECT Act. The Act authorizes fines and/or imprisonment of up to 30 years for U.S. citizens or residents who engage in illicit sexual conduct abroad, commonly known as “sex tourism.”

“Sex tourism is a felony offense that ICE investigates aggressively with the help of our international law enforcement partners,” said Roberto G. Medina, special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in El Paso. “This case exemplifies our international resolve to ensure that those who prey on children do not go unpunished.”

Solis-Martinez remains in federal custody at the El Paso County Detention Facility after going before a U.S. federal magistrate judge for an initial appearance July 24. (more…)
