The father of a five-year-old boy found abused and neglected in Mexico City in June was arrested on his way to work in Escondido and deported by immigration agents Tuesday.

The father, Pascual Castro, was an unauthorized immigrant who had been deported nine times previously, most recently in 2013, according to a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Castro was arrested by early Tuesday morning during what spokeswoman Lauren Mack described as a “targeted enforcement action conducted by ICE Fugitive Operations.” He was deported under a prior notice of removal issued by an immigration judge.

In a phone interview from Tijuana Wednesday, Castro said he was arrested on his way to work in the morning, then sent back across the border that afternoon.
