CEDAR RAPIDS – A Mexican man who used a false identification document to obtain a job was sentenced to more than three months in federal prison.

Jose Moctezuma-Hernandez, age 33, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the United States and living in Fort Dodge, Iowa, received the prison term after an August 23, 2018, guilty plea to one count of unlawful use of an identification document.

At the guilty plea, Moctezuma-Hernandez admitted he used a fraudulent Social Security card when he completed an employment form at a business in Clarion, Iowa, on December 1, 2015. Moctezuma-Hernandez, claiming to be a United States citizen, used the name, date of birth, and social security number of a United States citizen on the employment paperwork. Moctezuma-Hernandez came to the attention of immigration authorities in July 2018 following his third conviction for driving while barred in Wright County, Iowa. Moctezuma-Hernandez was previously removed to Mexico in June 2004 after illegally entering the United States.

Moctezuma-Hernandez was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by Chief United States District Court Judge Leonard T. Strand. Moctezuma-Hernandez was sentenced to 94 days’ imprisonment. He must also serve a one-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Moctezuma-Hernandez 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 Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations.

    I have a Hispanic family living next door to a friend of mine. Mom dad 4 adult sons. None of them work! Dad only makes tacos on weekends, 4 sons stay home never ever saw them get up to go to work. When my friend leaves for work they are still asleep at 5am. When he comes home after work at 3:30pm all of them still home just chilling drinking beer? All driving better looking cars than him!! WTF WHY AM HE WORKING TO SUPPORT THESE PEOPLE! THEY ARE NOT PRODUCTIVE, NOT U.S. CITIZENS, don’t pay taxes, everything is free for them. How do he know? The father was boosting that they came here 20 years ago. They never got citizenship because the US government pays for them to stay here????????for free?????

    Hmm…I wonder how an alien from another planet be treated? According to U.S. laws, NO ONE is allowed on American soil without a visa or green card ?? *

    And btw: WHY do we ASSUME aliens from another planet will be PEACEFUL? What if they turn out to be 50′ tall and are protected by a force field that NONE of our weapons can penetrate? And Humans are their version of candy?

    Thanks a lot, NASA for your GAMBLE re Earth’s existence! We (U.S. taxpayers ) contribute BILLIONS and BILLIONS and MORE $$$ that MIGHT hook us up with VIOLENT beings Beings that never knew about us until they caught a radio signal. Or found one of our spacecraft?

    *JUST KIDDING! I know there are numerous exceptions to NEEDING a green card or visa to legally enter the U.S.

    Dirty Dodge, instead of locking illegals up why don’t we put a tracking device in them and drop them off back in their motherland?
