ICE arrested an illegal immigrant from Mexico who entered the country illegal at least five times and allegedly threatened to shoot ICE officers.

Cesar Diaz-Rodriguez was arrested by deportation officers on Tuesday in Houston, Texas, for illegal reentry. He had been removed from the country in 2017 for illegal firearm possession. He was also removed from the U.S. and returned to Mexico twice in September 2004 and again in October 2011.



ICE received anonymous tips through its tip-line that Diaz-Rodriguez threatened to shoot ICE officers.

Patrick Contreras, field office director for ICE Houston, said Diaz-Rodriguez “brazenly ignored U.S. immigration law, while simultaneously threatening the lives of the brave men and women sworn to uphold it.”

“By working together with our partners from ERO Boise, we have removed this dangerous criminal alien from the community before he could act on those cowardly threats,” he said.

Diaz-Rodriguez is in ICE custody in Texas awaiting prosecution for illegal reentry.
