Border Patrol agents have arrested a Mexican man just 10 days after the federal government deported him.
Agents arrested Juan Carlos Moreno Martinez near Roma on Saturday.
“Records checks revealed the Defendant was formally Deported/Excluded from the United States on April 12, 2017, through Del Rio, Texas,” according to the federal criminal complaint against him.
Moreno apparently returned to the United States just 10 days later.
“The Defendant claims to have illegally entered the United States on April 22, 2017, near Roma, Texas,” according to the criminal complaint.
He’s now charged with illegal re-entry.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter E. Ormsby ordered Moreno held without bond.
An attorney for Moreno didn’t respond to a request for comment.
