TUCSON – U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended a man present in the country illegally, Nahum Rivas-Rivera, who had been previously convicted for murder in Baltimore, Maryland.
On Tuesday, Rivas-Rivera, convicted in 2006 of first degree murder in Baltimore, was arrested by Border Patrol agents on his third attempt to illegally enter the United States since his conviction, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Rivas-Rivera only served one year in prison before being deported.
Brian A. Terry Station agents nabbed the 37-year-old Rivas-Rivera and another unidentified man, while they were patrolling near the international border.
This was Rivas’ third known attempt to re-enter the United States since his arrest in 2006. Rivas now faces immigration charges for felony re-entry.
