HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on January 28, 2022, Imer Jose Mejia-Morales, age 33, was sentenced to time served (26 days) of imprisonment and 1 year of supervised release, by United States District Judge Jennifer P. Wilson for illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, Mejia-Morales pleaded guilty to having illegally reentered the United States sometime after his last removal to Mexico in June 2016. He is alleged to have illegally reentered the United States again sometime after that time.  He was located in the United States on March 30, 2021, in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, after a vehicle stop performed by Enforcement and Removal Operations.  It is expected he will be removed to Mexico at the completion of his sentence.

This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Joanne M. Sanderson.
