Criminal history includes aggravated sexual assault of a child, assault causing bodily injury and injury to a disabled person.

Robert Anthony Lopez, 48, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Tango Blast gang member, is now in custody after being arrested on Friday in San Antonio, and tipsters will be paid $7,500. Lopez has an extensive criminal history that includes aggravated sexual assault of a child, assault causing bodily injury, injury to a disabled person, violation of protective order and prohibited weapons.

After receiving tips placing Lopez at a San Antonio residence, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Unit arrived at the location and arrested him. The arrest was the result of two tips, and a total reward of $7,500 will be paid.

I noticed that all of the top 10 fugitives listed on the site had hispanic surnames and organized crime ties. And my republican congressman and senators are pushing for amnesty (immigration reform). Am I the only person bothered by the idea of 12 million criminals being granted citizenship. If you get caught in Mexico illegally you are a considered a felon. You face up to 2 years in prison, because you are a criminal. How about a quid pro quo immigration policy.
