When Border Patrol agents detained a Mexican man near Hidalgo on Tuesday, they discovered the federal government had deported him on Aug. 30, 2006 — and he’d returned just two days later.

Jose Sergio Quiroz-Palma admitted illegally crossing the border again on Sept. 1, 2006, according to the criminal complaint against him. Quiroz-Palma apparently remained in the United States for more than nine years before Border Patrol agents detained him again.

Records also revealed Quiroz-Palma had been convicted of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance on Jan. 20, 2005, according to the criminal complaint. He received 10 years probation.

Quiroz-Palma is now charged with illegal re-entry.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Quiroz-Palma, who remains in federal custody.
