Illegal Alien Gets Only 29 Months Despite Stealing US Identities for 30 Years

An illegal alien from El Salvador who has been stealing the identities of Americans for 30 years got a low, low 29-month sentence last week.

The illegal got caught after the American whose identity was stolen complained to Social Security that he wasn’t able to get his rightful benefits.

“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.

“In imposing the sentence, Judge Gleason mentioned the impact on the victim, as well as the defendant’s long criminal record spanning more than 30 years,” said the statement. “The victim, a U.S. national living in New York, stated that he found it difficult to obtain the benefits he was entitled to through Social Security because government records indicated that he was working in Alaska. In fact, Alegria-Garcia was working in Alaska, having stolen the victim’s identity.”

Although Alegria-Garcia had been “in the United States illegally since the early 1980s,” according to the statement published by the Social Security Administration OIG, he was arrested in late 2014, according to a press release put out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Who bets that once this illegal’s sentence is up he’ll be released right back into the US instead of deproted to El Salvador where he belongs?
