Gulfport, Miss. – A Mexican national was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, followed by one year of supervised release, for unlawful reentry by a removed alien, announced U.S. Attorney Darren LaMarca and Jason E. Schneider, Chief Patrol Agent of the Border Patrol’s New Orleans Sector.
According to court documents, Daniel Alvarado-Alvarado, 29, was stopped by a Jackson County Deputy Sheriff on Interstate 10 in Jackson County for a traffic violation. Alvarado-Alvarado had no driver’s license and a fraudulent Texas Identification Card. Immigration records checks determined that Alvarado-Alvarado had been convicted twice for driving under the influence and also for illegal entry into the United States. Alvarado-Alvarado had been removed from the United States on multiple occasions, and had not received official permission to reenter the U.S.
If Alvarado-Alvarado is removed again from the U.S. following his prison term, his supervised release period will be non-reporting while he remains outside of the United States. However, if he were removed and unlawfully returned, Alvarado-Alvarado could face separate, consecutive penalties in addition to further prosecution. Alvarado-Alvarado was convicted after pleading guilty on August 26, 2021, before Judge McNeel.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Border Patrol and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
Assistant United States Attorney Stan Harris prosecuted the case.
