DETROIT – Border Patrol agents recently arrested two men who were in the United States illegally after previously being removed for crimes they committed, officials said.
Authorities apprehended Enrique Jimenez-Padilla, of Mexico, and Ala Kazm Rasn, of Iraq, in separate incidents.
Jimenez-Padilla, 45, was taken into custody during a Nov. 7 traffic stop in Clarkston. Authorities said he was removed from the country in June 1995 after a felony conviction for inflicting corporal injury to a spouse.
He told authorities he illegally reentered the U.S. on foot in 2009.
According to authorities, Rasn, 47, was taken into custody during a “consensual encounter” on Nov. 15 in Detroit.
Rasn has felony convictions for theft of property and burglary, authorities said, as well as convictions for possession of drug paraphernalia, trespassing, fraud and public drunkenness and under the influence of a controlled substance.
He was removed from the U.S. in November 2003.
Officials said both men were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.
