THREE ILLEGAL ALIENS INDICTED FOR ILLEGAL REENTRY INTO U.S.
BIRMINGHAM – A federal grand jury, in separate indictments, today charged three men with illegally re-entering the United States after having been previously deported as illegal aliens, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance.
Each man is charged in a one-count indictment filed in U.S. District Court.
ROGELIO RIVERA-AMAYA, 42, and JUAN PABLO RODRIGUEZ-JUAREZ, 21, both of Mexico, are charged with illegally re-entering the country without permission from proper immigration officials after having been deported in 2008.
PEDRO PAZ-DIAZ, 21, also of Mexico, is charged with illegally re-entering the United States after having been deported in 2009.
Detention and removal agents of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Miles M. Hart is prosecuting the matter.
Members of the public are reminded that the indictment contains only charges. A defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
