CEDAR RAPIDS – A man who illegally returned to the United States after being deported was sentenced today to almost four months in federal prison.

Victor Morales-Suar, age 42, a citizen of Guatemala illegally present in the United States and residing in Marshalltown, Iowa, received the prison term after a January 16, 2019, guilty plea to one count of illegal reentry into the United States.

At the guilty plea, Morales-Suar admitted he had previously been deported from the United States in June 2003 and illegally reentered the United States without the permission of the United States government. Morales-Suar was deported after he was found to be working at a meat packing plant in South Sioux City, Nebraska, under a fake name and using fraudulent identification documents.

In November 2018, Morales-Suar was found by immigration agents after he was detained by the Meskwaki Nation Police Department in Tama, Iowa, after Morales-Suar attempted to enter the Meskwaki Casino using a fraudulent identification card.

Morales-Suar was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C. J. Williams. Morales-Suar was sentenced to 112 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.

Morales-Suar 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.

    Well, he’s still winning. Why do we out these uhm…. “people” in AMERICAN prison? I don’t want to pay for an illegal. How about, beat the shit out of him for a couple weeks, maybe burn a mark on his face. Send him HOME to spread the word to the rest of the scum. The American prison system is beyond corrupt, it’s a for profit industry that should not exist. Keeping non citizens locked up and forcing real people to support him is beyond wrong. Nobody should be locked up for non violent crime and Mexicans belong in Mexico. Why would prison be punishment for a Mexican? Even the worst prison is 1000 times better than Mexico.
