Border Patrol takes man into custody after refusing to leave Combat Center

A person was taken into custody after attempting to access the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center without valid identification.

A representative from Marine Corps confirmed that on 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday (March 27), an individual entered the base in Twentynine Palms through the Condor gate, on Condor Road, north of Valley Vista and east of the Main Gate. 

Base security asked the person to leave the base, and the person refused, and was detained by military law enforcement. The person was then transferred to Customs and Border Protection.

A social media account associated with CBP Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino identified the person in custody as a citizen of China who was in the country illegally. 

A representative with Customs and Border Protection said that the agency does not comment on specific cases.
