Customs and Border Protection agents discovered 48-year-old Pornkamol Mongkolsermsak while inspecting a Honda SUV entering the United States on Dec. 30 in Nogales, Ariz.
Mongkolsermsak, from Bangkok, was hidden under clothing in the large suitcase in the back of the vehicle driven by a 56-year-old Phoenix man, whose name hasn't been released.
Customs and Border Protection spokesman Victor Brabble said Tuesday that Mongkolsermsak was being charged with re-entry after deportation.
Authorities didn't immediately know if she has a lawyer yet.
