A 30-year-old Mexico City man was sentenced to 33 months in prison for illegal re-entry into the United States by a felon, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Friday.
Jose Fernando Calderon Rodriguez was apprehended by Naco Station agents in June for illegal entry. During processing, agents found Calderon was convicted of robbery in California in 2005 and sentenced to four years in prison, the Border Patrol said.
Calderon was sentenced on April 19. He will be formally removed from the United States following his sentence, and is now banned for life from all legalization processes, the Border Patrol said.
