A killer convicted in Honduras and an MS-13 gang member also from Honduras were arrested in California last weekend after crossing the border illegally, Border Patrol said Friday.

The two are being held up by federal authorities as examples of some of the criminals who have traveled through Mexico to the border with Central American caravans hoping to enter the U.S., many through the asylum process.

Both arrests occurred Saturday.

Around 11 p.m., agents detected three people crossing the border about one mile east of the San Ysidro Port of Entry, authorities said.

There, documents indicated that one of the men had been released recently from prison in Honduras after serving 10 years for homicide and three years for robbery.
