Judge frees man who was deported 9 times, has criminal past
A Mexican national who has been deported nine times, has a lengthy criminal record and skipped his trial on a domestic assault and battery charge last month was freed on bail by a federal magistrate yesterday over the objections of prosecutors.
Bulmaro Enriquez was arrested May 30 on federal charges of re-entering the United States after being deported, according to court records.
In a court filing, prosecutors noted Enriquez has already been deported nine times, and that he had been convicted of operating under the influence three times since 2004 and possession of a controlled substance twice, most recently in 2015. Authorities found Enriquez with 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana, along with scales and other drug-dealing equipment, prosecutors said.
“Enriquez is in the United States illegally having been deported on nine separate occasions between 2004 and 2016,” prosecutors wrote in a brief opposing bail. “Enriquez has demonstrated a lack of respect for the laws of the United States by illegally re-entering the country after being deported on numerous occasions.”
