Mexican Man Sentenced For Illegal Reentry After Deportation
CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced that Juvenal Aguilar-Gonzalez, 33, of Mexico, pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the United States after having been previously deported. Aguilar-Gonzalez, who was arrested on March 18, 2016, was immediately sentenced to time served.
Juvenal Aguilar-Gonzalez, using the name Javier Mandujano-Aguilar, was arrested by the Nashua Police Department on March 8, 2016 for operating a vehicle without a valid license. A set of fingerprints taken by the Nashua Police while booking Aguilar-Gonzalez were submitted to Immigration and Customs Enforcement – Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE-ERO) and were found to match fingerprints associated with a record of the defendant’s previous deportation in 2011. A Deportation Officer checked ICE indices and reviewed excerpts from the defendant’s alien file and learned that the defendant had been previously deported from the United States to Mexico. A comparison of the Nashua Police booking photograph to photographs found in the defendant’s alien file was also a match.
On March 18, 2016, ICE ERO Officers were conducting surveillance on the last known address of the defendant. At approximately 5:35 a.m., Deportation Officers identified Aguilar-Gonzalez as he exited the residence and entered the passenger side of a white Ford Pick-up truck the defendant has been known to operate in the past.
The defendant was approached by a Deportation Officer who asked the defendant his name to which he replied “Javier.” The Deportation Officer then asked the defendant in Spanish if he had any documents to be in the U.S. legally to which the defendant replied “no.” Aguilar-Gonzalez was then taken into ICE custody for being illegally present in the U.S. and transported to the Manchester ICE office for administrative processing. The defendant will now be deported.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alfred Rubega.
