Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Wendy W. Berger today sentenced Alejandro Rosales-Gonzalez (36, Mexico) to three years in federal prison for illegal reentry after deportation.         

Rosales-Gonzalez had pleaded guilty on September 30, 2019.

According to testimony and court documents, since 2001, Rosales-Gonzalez has been returned or deported from the United States to Mexico eight times. He has been charged and convicted for illegal entry and illegal reentry four times since 2011, including this case. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement most recently encountered Rosales-Gonzalez on April 19, 2019, following his arrest for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in Melbourne, Florida.

“Thanks to the hard work of our Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) team, this violent criminal illegal alien is out of our communities,” said Miami ERO Field Office Director Michael W. Meade. 

This case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE-ERO). It was prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Brandon Bayliss, on assignment from the Office of Principal Legal Advisor, ICE, in the Middle District of Florida.
