All criminal aliens should be banned for life!!!!! Banned for Life Subject Previously Convicted for Attempted Robbery Friday, October 21, 2011 Tucson, Ariz. A 43-year-old male from Sonora, Mexico, who was apprehended by Nogales Station Border Patrol agents in early May, was sentenced to 75 months in prison on Oct. 18. The U.S. Attorneys Office prosecuted Alejandro Rivas-Amador after his apprehension on May 9, 2010, for attempting to illegally re-enter the United States. During processing at the Nogales Station, the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System revealed Rivas-Amador was previously convicted in Santa Cruz County in 1992 for attempted robbery and sentenced to one year in prison before being removed from the United States. Current record checks also indicated Rivas-Amador was previously deported from the United States after serving his sentence. Following initial processing, the Border Patrol submitted the case to the U.S. Attorneys Office for re-entry of a felon. Rivas-Amador will be formally removed from the country following his 75-month incarceration. All illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using IAFIS. This vital tool accesses criminal records throughout the United States, thereby assisting agents to quickly identify violent criminals and wanted persons. In January 2011, the Tucson Sector Border Patrol, a component of the Joint Field Command-Arizona, implemented the Consequence Delivery System as an integral component of its enforcement strategy. CDS centers on delivering a targeted consequence to illegal immigrants, while simultaneously disrupting the smuggling cycle and reducing recidivism rates by ensuring consequences are upheld to the full extent of the law. Rivas-Amador is now banned for life from all legalization processes without a waiver from the U.S. Attorney General.
