Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Nogales’ DeConcini crossing arrested a previously deported MS-13 gang member Monday evening.
Officers referred Jose Daniel Calderon-Canada, 29, for further inspection when he applied for entry into the United States claiming to be a U.S. citizen. During a secondary inspection, officers determined he was lying about his citizenship. Subsequent records checks identified Calderon as a Mexican national and an MS-13 gang member with multiple deportations and an extensive criminal history.
Officers arrested Calderon for making a false claim to United States citizenship. He was then referred for federal prosecution.
