ALBANY, NEW YORK – Alejandro Quintero-Marquez, age 34, and a citizen of Mexico, was sentenced today to time served (135 days in jail), for illegal re-entry into the United States.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Thomas E. Feeley, Director of the Buffalo Field Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

Quintero-Marquez has been previously removed from the United States to Mexico three times, the most recent removal taking place on July 30, 2010.  On July 28, 2018, he was encountered and arrested by an ICE Officer in Walton, Delaware County, New York. A fingerprint check of Quintero-Marquez resulted in the discovery of the prior removals.  Quintero-Marquez admitted that he returned to the United States without permission following the July 30, 2010 removal.  Quintero-Marquez has never had lawful authority to enter or reside in the United States. 

This case was investigated by ICE-ERO and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward P. Grogan.
