Alien Sentenced For Illegal Re-entry

Had Been Removed Five Times

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Jesus Vasquez-Loyola (28, of Valatie, NY) was sentenced today to serve 14 months in prison by Chief United States District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe announced United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In May, Vasquez-Loyola pled guilty to illegally reentering the United States following removal, a felony under federal law. Following the completion of the term of imprisonment, the Department of Homeland Security will process Vasquez-Loyola for removal from the United States to Mexico.

In April 2014, Vasquez-Loyola was arrested by New York State Police Officers in Kinderhook, New York and charged with several offenses including driving while intoxicated. Vasquez-Loyola had been previously removed to Mexico five times, most recently in July 2012 after his conviction in the Northern District of New York for illegally entering the United States after removal.

The case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Albany, NY.
