from the United States District Court for the Southern
District of Texas
CLEMENT, DUNCAN, and OLDHAM, Circuit Judges.
KYLE DUNCAN, CIRCUIT JUDGE
Vasquez-Puente appeals two special conditions of supervised
release in his written judgment, arguing they conflict with
the sentence orally pronounced by the district court. Finding
no abuse of discretion, we affirm.
pleaded guilty to being unlawfully found in the United States
after a previous deportation in violation of 8 U.S.C. §
1326(a) and (b). Based on his presentence report
("PSR"), he faced a guidelines range of 51-63
months. In objections to the PSR, he admitted he
"obviously knew that it was illegal to return [to the
United States], because he has been prosecuted for this same
offense twice before." At sentencing,
Vasquez-Puente's attorney stated he had warned his client
"more than once . . . that he should not be coming back
here because these sentences are just going to get higher and
higher[, ]" adding that Vasquez-Puente "has
indicated that he has no plans to return here, [and] that
he's going to stay in Mexico." For his part,
Vasquez-Puente stated, "I want to apologize for having
entered the country illegally." He explained he had come
to the United States "to give a better life for my
children but [now] I see I cannot be here," and so he
promised, "I'm not coming back."
district court gave Vazquez-Puente a low-end prison sentence
of 51 months. The court also imposed "a 3-year term of
supervised release," explaining this was needed
"because . . . in the PSR it indicates how that after
that last removal, you remained in Mexico for only about one
month." The court explicitly warned Vasquez-Puente that
he had been previously deported and that therefore he
"should understand certainly just from that that you
can't be [in the United States]." The court also
admonished him that, "[i]f you are deported, it will be
without active supervision[, ] but if you are in the country,
you're to comply with all the standard conditions adopted
by the Court."
court's subsequent written judgment imposed on
Vasquez-Puente the following "special conditions"
of supervision (formatted for ease of reading):
 You must surrender to U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement and follow all [its] instructions and reporting
requirements until any deportation proceedings are completed.
 If you are ordered deported from the United States, you
must remain outside the United States unless legally
authorized to reenter.
 If you reenter the United States, you must report to the
nearest probation office within 72 hours after you return.
specific conditions, however, did not appear in
Vasquez-Puente's PSR. Nor did the district court
expressly enumerate them when orally pronouncing sentence.
appealed, arguing that the first and second special
conditions in the written judgment conflict with the oral
