Former Mt. Pleasant Resident Sentenced To Prison For Unlawful Re-Entry To U.S.

By Kyle Smith, March 22, 2019

An former resident of Mt. Pleasant has been sentenced to prison for illegally entering the country after previously being deported.

On March 21, 2019, Ricardo Macias-Saucedo, 29, was sentenced to prison in the amount of time already served on the charge of unlawful re-entry into the United States.  Due to the amount of time he has already been imprisoned in this case, he will soon be released to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Macias-Saucedo pled guilty on November 8, 2018.

Macias-Saucedo was encountered by ICE agents on May 9, 2018 while they were executing a federal search warrant at Midwest Precast Concrete in Mt. Pleasant.  He was administratively questioned and it was determined that he was not authorized to enter, live, or work in the United States. It was further determined that he had previously been deported on January 23, 2008. Since that removal, Macias-Saucedo had not applied for, or received permission to re-enter the country.

This case was investigated by ICE and the Department of Homeland Security, and was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office-Southern District of Iowa.
