“The defendant claims to have illegally re-entered the United States on or about December 15, 2015 by wading the Rio Grande River at or near Hidalgo, Texas,” according to the criminal complaint.
He’s now charged with illegal re-entry.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter E. Ormsby ordered Martinez held without bond.
An attorney for Martinez couldn’t be reached for comment.
