US v. Ruiz-Lopez, No. 13-10093 (4-25-14) (Gould with McKeown and Quist, D.J.). 

The 9th affirmed a conviction for illegal reentry after deportation against a sufficiency of evidence appeal.    The government introduced into evidence a deportation order.  By itself, a deportation order isn't sufficient.  However, the government also introduced contents of the A file, including an I-213 form and other documents indicating a prior removal, and then an arrest after scaling a fence.  If there is evidence in front of the jury, it can be considered.  There was here.
