After a second drunken driving conviction, the federal government wants to deport a Mexican man for the seventh time.

Oscar De La Rosa-Mendoza, 31, of Mission -- a Mexican citizen who wasn't lawfully present in the United States -- pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated, a Class B misdemeanor, on May 9. He also pleaded guilty to resisting arrest, a Class A misdemeanor.

De La Rosa had previous convictions for drunken driving, evading arrest and assault causing bodily injury, according to Hidalgo County court records.

County Court at Law Judge Albert Garcia sentenced De La Rosa to time served on the drunken driving charge.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained De La Rosa at the Hidalgo County jail on May 14.

"Record checks revealed the defendant was formally removed from the United States to Mexico for the sixth (6th) time on March 3, 2016 via the Brownsville, Texas Port of Entry," according to the criminal complaint against him.

De La Rosa is charged with illegal re-entry.

An attorney for De La Rosa couldn't be reached for comment.
