On Tuesday, three illegal aliens were sentenced for re-entering the United States after having been previously deported. Denis Izara-Rivera, 25; Margarito Hernandez-Izara, 27; and Marvin Lopez-Lopez, 25; all of Guatemala, were sentenced to time served by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote in Louisiana on one count each of illegal re-entry of a removed alien. They will be deported after they are turned over to immigration agents. According to their guilty pleas, deputies of the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s department arrested the men while they were riding a vehicle together on August 19, 2018 near Many, Louisiana.
After further investigation, law enforcement agents discovered that Izara-Rivera had been previously removed twice. He was first arrested 2013 in McAllen, Texas, and deported to Guatemala. After that, he was arrested one months later and removed again to Guatemala. Hernandez-Izara had been previously removed once. He was detained in 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona, and later removed to Guatemala. Lopez-Lopez had been previously removed on one occasion. After being found in 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona, he was later removed to Guatemala.
United States Border Patrol and the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Seth D. Reeg prosecuted the case.
