A woman in a suitcase at the US border was arrested after she attempted to enter the US from Mexico illegally. On Jan. 7, ABC News reported that the 48-year-old woman was hidden under clothing in a suitcase in the back of a Honda SUV that tried to enter the country in Arizona.

The woman has been identified as Pornkamol Mongkolsermsak and authorities say that she was previously deported -- she has been charged with re-entry after deportation according to the report. A 56-year-old Phoenix man was driving the vehicle but his name has not been released and it's unclear whether or not he has been charged.

The woman inside the suitcase at the border was from Thailand. It's unknown if she was deported back to Thailand or why she was in Mexico... but she didn't have much success coming back to the United States. Further details about the case were not available and it's unclear whether or not the woman has a lawyer.
