CEDAR RAPIDS – An illegal alien who was caught drunk driving in Iowa has been sentenced to four months in prison for illegally returning here following deportation.

Amador Artiniega-Reyes, age 38, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the United States and residing in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the prison term after a January 3, 2018, guilty plea to one count of illegal reentry into the United States.

At the guilty plea, Artiniega-Reyes admitted he had previously been deported from the United States in May 2010, and that he illegally reentered the United States in October 2011 without permission of the United States government. Artiniega-Reyes was also returned to Mexico by immigration officials in 2002. On November 24, 2017, Artiniega-Reyes was found by immigration officers in the Benton County, Iowa, Jail following Artiniega-Reyes’s arrest for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

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

Artiniega-Reyes is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be turned over to immigration officials.

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.

    Why would he get supervised probation for a year if he is here illegally?

    Just wait till he drives drunk and kills someone. This is why we need to deport them. They break the law by coming here and continue to break the law when they are here.
