CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A man who illegally returned to the U.S. and used false documents to obtain employment has been sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.

Anacleto Morales-Carrera, 40, an illegal alien living in Hampton, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful use of identification documents, one count of misuse of a social security number, and one count of illegal reentry into the United States by an aggravated felon.

Morales-Carrera was deported from the United States in January 2001 after having been convicted in Iowa of forgery.

The forgery conviction involved the possession of a fraudulent social security card in his name.

In November 2005, he was again deported from the United States after having been found in Iowa.

In January 2006, Morales-Carrera was convicted in Texas of illegal entry into the United States in December 2005, and again deported on January 12, 2006.

After that date, he yet again illegally reentered the United States and in August 2012, Morales-Carrera used a fraudulent permanent resident card and a fraudulent social security card, both in his name, to gain employment in Iowa.
