Deportee with Pending Assault Charge Arrested in Texas

Hidalgo County SO

Federal immigration officials have arrested a previously deported illegal immigrant with a pending assault charge.

Claudia Yanira Cedeno-Arce, 34-years-old of Mexico, has been living in San Juan, Texas, despite being deported back to her native country in December 2015, according to Valley Central News.

Cedeno-Arce was arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, with federal officials noting that she has an outstanding assault charge from 2014.

When Cedeno-Arce was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault, she was released on a $5,000 bond, despite being illegally present in the country.

Cedeno-Arce is awaiting a hearing in an immigration court.
