Mexican National Returned to Mexico to Face Charges from Fatal Traffic Accident

"Mexican murder suspect handed over to Mexican authorities"
"A Mexican national wanted for vehicular homicide in his native country was turned over to representatives from the Mexican Attorney General's Office (PGR) at the border crossing in Nogales, Ariz., this morning by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Pablo Cruz-Rojas, 28, is suspected of causing a fatal traffic accident while driving under the influence in the state of Nayarit, Mexico, in July 2008. Cruz, who allegedly killed two people and severely injured a third, posted bail and fled to the United States in August 2008.

In August 2009, the FBI in Bakersfield, Calif., contacted the local ICE Office of Investigations and advised that Cruz might be residing illegally in Bakersfield. On the same day, Bakersfield ICE agents arrested Cruz at his residence on immigration violations. Cruz was subsequently transferred to the Florence Detention Center in Florence, Ariz., where an immigration judge ordered him removed to Mexico on Nov. 3, 2009."
