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

Gabriel Hernandez-Martinez, age 39, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the United States received the prison term after a June 21, 2019, guilty plea to one count of illegal reentry into the United States.

At the guilty plea, Hernandez-Martinez admitted he had previously been deported from the United States in October 2009, December 2009, March 2010, and November 2010 and illegally reentered the United States without the permission of the United States government. Hernandez-Lopez and other illegal aliens were found by immigration agents in May 2019 after a traffic stop in Bremer County, Iowa. Hernandez-Martinez was also deported to Mexico one time in November 1998, three times in November 1999, two times on the same day in June 2005, and one additional time in October 2009.

Hernandez-Martinez was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Hernandez-Martinez was sentenced to five 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.

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

    “Stupid Wall” Some people are so damn stupid !! Of course the wall,increased border security and closing the loop holes will solve this problem. We can very easily solve this problem if “we” wanted to. But the Rinos and the Democrats have sold out to the Kock brothers and George Soros globalist idiots to stay in power as long as they give them all the cheap illegal labor.

    I wonder how much US treasure has been spent on catching and deporting this one individual. Caught at least 11 times and he still doesn’t get it. The time and resources spent on this guy alone could have been put to much better use on many more deserving causes.

    This is a prime example of, “no comprende”. Extermination will be the only way to keep this illegal from coming back. Imagine what he has done illegally in the US, in the past 10 years.
