Salvadoran Man Sentenced for Illegal Re-Entry
ALBANY, NEW YORK – Jose Domingo Contreras Flores, age 34, and a citizen of El Salvador, was sentenced today to time served (about 69 days in jail) for illegally re-entering the United States.
The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Thomas P. Brophy, Acting Director of the Buffalo Field Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
Flores had been removed from the United States in 2003, at Chandler, Arizona. He later re-entered the country without the permission of the Department of Homeland Security. Flores had been living in Hudson at the time of his arrest.
Flores will be transferred to the custody of the Department of Homeland Security, which will place him into removal proceedings.
This case was investigated by ICE-ERO in Latham, New York, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
