WASHINGTON — In January, Evin Adonis Ortiz was arrested and charged with killing a 24-year-old man in Los Angeles. After running Ortiz's fingerprints through an FBI database, police learned he was in the country illegally - and this wasn't his first arrest.

Ortiz had convictions for driving without a license and attempted grand larceny.
