Agents say man tried to ride the rails to illegally enter country
NILAND, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents on Wednesday prevented a convicted murder from re-entering the United States.
Agents from the Indio station say they found the 53-year-old Mexican national while inspecting a northbound train near the Highway 111 checkpoint. They say the man was hiding in a cargo box.
Agents arrested him. They say routine processing revealed his murder conviction, as well as a previous deportation.
