On November 9, 2023, Jesus Moises Ruiz, Jr., aged 34 from Rio Rico, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Scott H. Rash to a 40-month prison term. Ruiz had admitted to one count of transporting illegal aliens for financial gain on August 31, 2023 in Tucson, Arizona.

On February 20, 2023, Border Patrol agents in the United States began to chase a grey Chevrolet pickup driven by Ruiz on State Route 90. Ruiz picked up speed and eventually made it to I-10. Through the help of air support, the agents eventually tracked Ruiz down and, after a prolonged pursuit, apprehended him.

During the chase, five undocumented noncitizens got out of Ruiz's car, and law enforcement agents tracked them down afterwards.
