Honduran Man Sentenced For Illegally Re-Entering The United States After Previous Deportations

          CONCORD, N.H. – United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced today that Alexander Alcerro-Romero, of Honduras, was sentenced to serve 15 months in prison for illegally re-entering the United States after having been previously deported.

          According to public records and statements in court, in March of 2016, a deportation officer learned that Alcerro-Romero was illegally present in the United States after having been deported on two previous occasions.  During a motor vehicle stop on April 11, 2016, Alcerro-Romero could not produce a U.S. driver’s license and later acknowledged that he was not lawfully in the United States.  A fingerprint match subsequently confirmed his identity and his prior deportations.

          Alcerro-Romero, who pleaded guilty on July 6, 2016, faces likely deportation after serving his sentence.

          The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alfred Rubega prosecuted this case.
