A Mex­i­can gang mem­ber who killed some­one in the Fresno area 35 years ago and even­tu­ally was de­ported made an at­tempt last week to il­le­gally re-en­ter the United States.

U.S. Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion stated in a news re­lease that the man was ap­pre­hended Mon­day by bor­der pa­trol agents in Yuma, Ariz.

Au­thor­i­ties learned the man had been con­victed of vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter in Fresno back in 1984 and served 11 years in prison.

Agents de­ter­mined the man, who ad­mit­ted to be­ing a mem­ber of the Bor­der Broth­ers street gang, had bur­rowed un­der an older sec­tion of bor­der fence, the same area used by the group of 376 Cen­tral Amer­i­cans the week prior in their at­tempt to get into the United States.

All per­sons ap­pre­hended by the Bor­der Pa­trol un­dergo crim­i­nal his­tory checks us­ing bio­met­rics to en­sure il­le­gal im­mi­grants with crim­i­nal his­to­ries are cor­rectly iden­ti­fied.

The Mex­i­can man will be pros­e­cuted for reen­try af­ter de­por­ta­tion. Nei­ther the man’s iden­tity nor age was re­leased.
