Mexican Man Sentenced For Illegally Reentering The United States After Three Previous Deportations
CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Luis Ruiz-Aguillon, of Mexico, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to eight months in prison for illegally reentering the United States after having been previously deported, announced Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith.
Court documents establish that the Londonderry Police stopped a vehicle containing four occupants for speeding at 2:45 a.m. on December 7, 2014. The driver of the vehicle presented the police with a driver’s license issued in Mexico. Two of the passengers provided Mexican voter identification cards and the fourth passenger did not have any identification. The Londonderry Police called the Department of Homeland Security for assistance in identifying the occupants of the vehicle. Agents of the Department’s Enforcement and Removal section of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement responded to the scene and obtained admissions from the occupants that each was illegally present in the United States.
Fingerprint comparisons identified Ruiz-Aguillon as having been previously deported from Texas in 2003, 2006 and 2009. On December 19, 2014, Ruiz-Aguillon was charged with illegal reentry after having been previously deported. Ruiz-Aguillon pled guilty to the charges on March 12, 2015.
“Our office will continue to investigate and prosecute those individuals who repeatedly violate our immigration laws by reentering the United States after having been deported,” said Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith. “The path to citizenship does not include an avenue for those who flout the legal procedures for entering the country after having been deported.”
The case was investigated by the Londonderry Police and agents of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alfred Rubega.
