Mexican Man Sentenced For Illegal Reentry After Deportation

            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced  that Jose Villavazo-Gutierrez, 25, of Mexico, pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the United States after having been previously deported.  Villavazo-Gutierrez, was arrested on February 17, 2016.  He was sentenced to time served and is subject to deportation.

            On February 17, 2016, ICE-ERO Deportation Officers encountered the defendant when they were at a residence in Nashua, New Hampshire, during an attempt to locate another individual at the  residence.  The defendant was an occupant at the residence.  The defendant did not have any identification, told the agents that he was from Mexico, and admitted that he did not have any immigration documents which would allow him to be legally in the United States.

            The Deportation Officers submitted the defendant’s fingerprints for comparison to databases of known fingerprints.  The fingerprint impressions submitted were a match to those taken from the defendant on the occasion of his previous deportations from the United States to Mexico in 2014.

            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.
