WATERLOO (KWWL) -

An illegal alien who had been living in Waterloo is going to federal prison for two years.

The United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says 41-year-old Jaime Rodriguez-Andres, also known as Alejandro Govea-Salvador, pleaded guilty on October 10 to one count of illegal reentry into the United States by an aggravated felon, one count of unlawful use of identification documents, and one count of making a false claim to United States citizenship.

Court officials say Rodriguez-Andres admitted that he came into the United States without permission after being deported on October 6, 2005. He was convicted of forgery and identity theft charges in Black Hawk County on April 6, 2009 and deported again on September 16, 2009.

He then admitted to coming back and using a Social Security card issued in someone else's name while filling out an employment verification form and falsely claimed to be a U.S. citizen while applying for a job.

Immigration officials learned that Rodriguez-Andres had illegally returned to the U.S. when he was arrested for assault/domestic abuse causing bodily injury in July 2014 in Waterloo.

Rodriguez-Andres was sentenced to two years in prison and must serve a three-year term of supervised release after his prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
