A Mexican National with a long criminal rap sheet was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in Michigan.

Federal prosecutors charged Rafael Munoz-Molina on May 10 with illegal reentry into the United States after seven prior deportations, MLive reported.

Munoz-Molina was leaving a motel in Bay County when ICE officers pulled him over. Munoz-Molina openly identified himself to the officers and “freely admitted to not having any legal status or documentation to reside or remained in the United States,” Hector Rivera, a deportation officer with ICE, wrote in an affidavit.

Munoz-Molina has a long criminal history inside the United States dating back to 1995. His first conviction took place in Bay County where he was found guilty of malicious destruction of property valued at under $200. His second conviction, second-degree retail fraud, came later that year in a Saginaw County, Michigan.

Two years later, in July 1997, Munoz-Molina received his third conviction – this time in Midland County, Michigan – of domestic violence and received a three-month prison sentence followed by probation and fines before being deported back to Mexico in October 1997
