THE Bureau of Immigration (BI) has arrested an American pedophile wanted in Texas for engaging in child pornography last Monday, May 8, in Batangas.
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente identified the American fugitive as Christopher Wayne Walker, 60, who arrested at his residence in Barangay Darasa, Tanauan City, Batangas.
Morente said the United States embassy informed the BI about Walker's presence in the country and his charges in a court in Texas for jumping bail and promoting child pornography.
The immigration chief said the BI board of commissioners has issued a summary deportation order against Walker, an undocumented alien, last April 23, for posing a risk to public safety.
The American national is now detained at the BI detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, while awaiting his deportation to his country.
Morente said Walker could not enter the country again as his name is now placed on the immigration blacklist. (SunStar Philippines)
