U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers on Tuesday arrested a Mexican man who allegedly threatened to shoot ICE officers.

The illegal immigrant, 30-year-old Cesar Diaz-Rodriguez, was arrested in Houston, Texas. He had on at least five separate occasions illegally entered the United States, according to ICE.

The last time he was known to have been deported was on Oct. 31, 2017, after he was convicted on a felony criminal charge for unlawful firearm possession. According to the federal agency, Diaz-Rodriguez was voluntarily returned to Mexico three other times—twice in September 2004 and once in October 2011.


“This individual brazenly ignored U.S. immigration law, while simultaneously threatening the lives of the brave men and women sworn to uphold it,” said Patrick Contreras, field office director for ICE Houston, according to a news release.
