US immigration law officers say man lied about identity

Some people know what it's like to face legal problems associated with their identities. In fact, more than a few people in Florida have been wrongly accused of crimes because of mistaken identity. A man in another state was recently arrested on a warrant and then detained by Immigration Customs and Enforcement for violating U.S. immigration law.

The man was arrested for supposedly driving without a valid license and for other traffic violations. Police say there was a warrant and that when the man was booked, he offered a false ID. Authorities claim that the documents he provided included another name and an incorrect age. At some point, Immigration Customs and Enforcement got wind of the situation and took the man into custody.

ICE says the man was already deported to Mexico some time ago, and the agency does not know how he re-entered the United States. Apparently, he also has a drunk driving conviction on his record from 2008. He is currently being held in a county jail pending removal proceedings.

U.S. immigration law is complex and when criminal charges and legal status issues intersect, it can take some time to sort things out. Anyone in Florida facing such problems may take advantage of local resources available to retain legal representation before attending any hearings. An attorney well-versed in both criminal law and immigration law would be the greatest asset to have on hand at such a time. Many law firms have one or more attorneys who can address both criminal and immigration law concerns.
