The appellant was convicted of illegally reentering the country. For an alien to be "found" under 8 U.S.C. §1326, immigration authorities must discover and note the alien's physical presence, and the illegality of the alien's presence must be known or reasonably attributable to immigration authorities. The conviction is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-10921, 03-19-2013.
