Illegal alien, deported 4 times who came back to Iowa, sent to prison

CEDAR RAPIDS – A Mexican man who had previously been deported four times and was caught living in Iowa was sentenced on November 9, 2017, to five months in federal prison.

Eliceo Tecpile-Tzompaxtle, age 35, a native and citizen of Mexico illegally residing in New Vienna, Iowa, received the prison term after a September 19, 2017, guilty plea to misuse of a Social Security Number and illegal reentry of a removed alien.

Tecpile-Tzompaxtle admitted he illegally reentered the United States without permission after having been deported from the United States in 2002, 2007, and twice in 2008. Tecpile-Tzompaxtle also admitted that after illegally returning to the United States, he used a fraudulent Social Security Number when he completed state and federal tax forms in December 2014 at a company in New Vienna, Iowa, where he unlawfully worked.

Tecpile-Tzompaxtle was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge Linda R. Reade. Tecpile-Tzompaxtle was sentenced to five months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Tecpile-Tzompaxtle is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel C. Tvedt and investigated by the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations.
