Three illegal immigrants who were charged with immigration crimes were last week prosecuted in federal court. 44-year-old Luis Figueroa-Zuniga, from Honduras, and 31-year-old Samuel Hernandez-Hernandez, from Mexico, were both sentenced for crimes relating to illegal re-entry after initial removals from the US soil, U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart said in a release. Hernandez-Hernandez, residing in Beaver as at January, and Figueroa-Zuniga, residing in Ronceverte as at February, has been in federal custody since March 28 when their proceedings about the re-entry of illegal immigrants began. Following their removal hearings last week, they were immediately handed over to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for deportation proceedings. In a similar scenario, 23-year-old Juan Carlos Reyes-Molina, from Honduras, was also found guilty of re-entry of an illegal immigrant and could be jailed for two years when he is sentenced on September 12. The three men were uncovered by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an agency committed to ensuring America is safe for all by removing threats in forms of illegal immigrants from the country.
