Mexican man who used fraudulent Social Security card in Iowa sent to federal prison

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

Charly Martinez-Hernandez, age 19, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the United States and living in Cascade, Iowa, received the prison term after an February 20, 2019, guilty plea to one count of unlawful use of an identification document.

At the guilty plea, Martinez-Hernandez admitted he used a fraudulent Social Security card bearing an alias name when he completed an employment form at a business in Dyersville, Iowa, on August 20, 2018. The Social Security number was assigned to someone else. Martinez-Hernandez also used a fraudulent state of California identification card with the same alias name bearing his photo as part of the application process.

Martinez-Hernandez was admitted into the United States in April 2018 on a visitor visa with authorization to remain in the United States until October 14, 2108. Martinez-Hernandez overstayed his visa and failed to leave the United States as required. Martinez-Hernandez was found by immigration agents on December 29, 2018, after he was charged in Dubuque, Iowa, with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). That charge is still pending.

Martinez-Hernandez was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Martinez-Hernandez was sentenced to 106 days’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
Martinez-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.

    “The number of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who fraudulently posed as families with juvenile children at the border has soared, authorities reported Monday, saying they have opened about 100 investigations and found more than 25 suspected cases in April alone..

    The biggest threat to our country is Illegals coming into our country and being given everything from a Vote, to welfare, medicaid, healthcare, and who knows what else!

      Wrong! Mexican people work to provide for their family’s which is why some work jobs white trash people refuse to do or too lazy to do.
      Learn how to research it’s white trash who abuse the system. Most illegals don’t even have an SSN number so in order to get benefits you have to have that.

        that white – and black – “trash” abuse the system because it makes little sense for them to work minimum wage jobs if doing so afford them no better quality of life than living on welfare.

        deport the illegals who are willing to do americas shit work for minimum, or less than minimum wage, and employers will HAVE to start paying living wages to americas “trash”, a.k.a poor.

        and yes, upper middle class liberals like yourself will have to pay a couple of bucks more for your wine, restaurant meals and gardeners. you may even have to spend a little less time posting trash on the internet and do some actual work instead.

    ‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great American freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’…

      Well, I guess that pesky Constitution gets in the way of your idea. Ever hear of Due Process and Equal Protection? SCOTUS says no State can deny to any person within it’s jurisdiction equal protection of the laws.

      Mind you, Unsanctioned entry into the United States is a crime, and those who have entered unlawfully are subject to deportation. Yet, while they are here, no matter their status, they must obey our laws. And thus, be subject to the consequences should they violate them.

      I might remind you, the law is a shield, not a sword.

        The constitution was not developed for non-citizens. Illegals have no standing in our country and neither do the ones that support them.

      Some real tough talk coming from a NASCAR bib overall wearing Busch light drinking moron who barely graduated from high school.

      The guy was in the wrong for what he did and should be deported not hanged or shot which is what a racist tub of worthlessness like you would say.

      I bet you think all black people in iowa should go back to Chicago because that’s what ignorant white trash people like you think.

      And for you confederate waving flag fans might wanna check your flags might have a nice smelling surprise 🙂

      So white trash people still think Obama took your guns? Bunch of morons believing all that conspiracy garbage from a freaking meme.
      Just goes to show why iowa fails in education.

          Thanks for showing your racism even if hiding your name you still prove my point for all to see.

          I’m no liberal too nutty for my taste. I’m just someone who believes racist garbage has no place in our society.

          There is garbage in every race including white people which is mostly from ignorant white trash side of it.

          It always cringe-worthy when eLViS chimes in with his bs. All you low IQ racists should go back to the cave our ancestors crawled out of and live there.
