On Monday, July 24, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrest eight northeast of Douglas, Arizona after they attempted to cross the border into the U.S.

The group of eight were transported to the Douglas Station for processing and that was when agents learned of 22-year-old Martin Guzman-Garcia's conviction in Yuba County, CA.  

Guzman-Garcia now faces felony immigration charges for re-entering the U.S. following deportation.
