Alien from Mexico who stole social security number of mom with handicapped kids gets deported

gavel-justiceSIOUX CITY – A Mexican alien who caused an Iowa mom hardship by stealing her social security number to get a job will be deported.

Ostolia Collazo-Pena, age 43, from Mexico, was sentenced on November 9, 2015, to time served after a September 1, 2015, guilty plea to one count of fraud and misuse of visas, permits, and other documents. She was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett.

In a plea agreement, Collazo-Pena admitted she presented a fraudulent Green Card and Social Security Card to apply for a job in Sioux City, Iowa, on June 11, 2014. Collazo-Pena came to the attention of authorities when the victim whose social security number Collazo-Pena had been using alerted the Social Security Administration that her disability social security payments for her two disabled children had been disrupted.
