Salvadoran National Charged with Illegal Reentry After Deportation

BOSTON – A Salvadoran national was charged yesterday in federal court in Boston with illegally reentering the United States after being deported.  

Manuel Erazo-Posada, 37, was indicted on one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien.

Law enforcement in Boston encountered Erazo-Posada on April 30, 2018, and determined him to be illegally present in the United States. Erazo-Posada was previously deported on June 28, 2010.

Erazo-Posada faces a sentence of no greater than two years in prison, one year of supervised release, a fine of $250,000, and will be subject to deportation upon completion of his sentence. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Thomas P. Brophy, Acting Field Office Director, Boston, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case.
