MANILA, Philippines — Immigration agents, acting on a request from the US embassy, arrested Monday an American wanted in Texas for engaging in child pornography.

Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said Christopher Wayne Walker, 60, was arrested at his home in Barangay Darasa, Tanauan City, Batangas.

The fugitive is reported to be the subject of arrest warrants issued by courts in Burnet County and Bend County in Texas, where he is charged with jumping bail and promoting child pornography, respectively.

The BI board of commissioners issued a summary deportation order against Walker on April 23 for posing a risk to public safety and on account of his becoming an undocumented alien after the US government cancelled his passport.

Walker is detained at the BI detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City. He has been placed in the immigration blacklist and banned from re-entering the country.
