Dominican Man Guilty Of Illegally Reentering The United States After Previous Deportation

          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Onix Abreu, of the Dominican Republic, pled guilty late this morning to a one-count Information alleging that he illegally reentered the United States after having been previously deported.

          On June 15, 2015 agents of the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement approached Abreu at the Salem office of the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles.  Abreu was at the office attempting to obtain a New Hampshire driver’s license under a false identity.  Abreu admitted to the agents that his real name was Onix Abreu and that he had been deported previously.  Fingerprint analysis confirmed Abreu’s identity.  An investigation established that Abreu was deported in 2005 at Alexandria, Louisiana.

          Abreu will be sentenced at 10:00 AM on January 6, 2016, and will be deported after serving his sentence.

          The case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alfred Rubega.
