Dominican Who Returned Illegally Was Tripped Up by Fingerprints Now US Asks 30 Months

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 21 – Desiderio Marte Vargas was deported from the US to the Dominican Republic in 2015 after conviction for burglary, a felony. 

Then he returned.

  He was arrested in The Bronx, and on August 18, 2023 he pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court. 

 The arrest was for possession of a controlled substance, and his fingerprints gave him away. His sentencing guideline is 24 to 30 months, to be followed by removal.

On November 21, the US Attorney's Office wrote it asking for a sentence "at the top of the stipulated Guidelines" - that is, 30 months.

case is US v. Vargas, 23-cr-428 (Schofield)
