Jose Alegria-Garcia, an illegal alien from El Salvador who has been in the United States illegally for more than 30 years, has been sentenced to serve 29 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to unlawfully using a Social Security number, falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen and stealing the identity of a U.S. citizen.
“Alegria-Garcia, a citizen of El Salvador, has been in the United States illegally since the early 1980s,” says a statement published by the Office of Inspector General of the Social Security Administration.
The OIG statement was headlined: “Illegal Alien Sentenced to 29 Months in Prison for Identity Theft.”
“United States Court Judge Sharon L. Gleason sentenced Alegria-Garcia to the five months imprisonment he has already served on the Social Security number and false citizenship charges, and also imposed a mandatory two-year consecutive term for aggravated identity theft,” said the statement.
