Manuel Zumba-Mejia, 46, was arrested in New York for unlawfully re-entering the U.S. after ICE officers sent him back to Ecuador in 2011 following a prison sentence for reckless assault.
Zumba-Mejia was convicted in February 2010 of reckless assault by the Westchester County Court for causing serious brain injury to his 7-week-old daughter by "shaking or impacting the head." He was sentenced to three years incarcerated.
The announcement said Zumba-Mejia initially entered the U.S. at an unknown location on an unknown date, and was not inspected or admitted by an immigration official. He was first encountered by ERO authorities at Westchester County Jail in February 2009 for the assault on his daughter. An immigration detainer was lodged.
