US v. Arita-Campos, 09-2368

In a prosecution of defendant for illegal re-entry after being deported in violation of 8 U.S.C. section 1326(a), claiming that a 1994 order of deportation could not serve as the basis for the underlying offense as it was entered in absentia, district court's denial of defendant's motion to dismiss the indictment is affirmed as defendant cannot establish any of the elements required by section 1326.
