Mexican Man Pleads Guilty To Illegally Reentering The United States After Having Been Previously Deported

          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced today that Angel Mata, of Mexico, has pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the United States after having been deported previously. 

          Mata pleaded guilty before United States District Court Judge Paul Barbadoro to an indictment that had been returned by a federal grand jury on June 15, 2016.

          According to court filings and statements in Court, a Deportation Officer developed information indicating that Angel Mata, a Mexican national, was present in the United States after having been deported on two previous occasions. On June 15, 2016, Deportation Officers approached the defendant who confirmed that his name was Angel Mata and that he was illegally present in the United States without any immigration documents. His identity later was confirmed through fingerprint information.

           Mata will be sentenced at 10:00 AM on November 28, 2016, and will be deported 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 is prosecuting this case.
