Palestinian man sentenced for false immigration document


A Palestinian man has been sentenced to six months in prison and faces deportation proceedings after being convicted of possessing a fraudulent immigration document.
Suleiman Muhammad Ramiyeh, 35, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer. He was ordered to be turned over to immigration officials following his release for deportation and removal proceedings, U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced Monday.
In 2001, Ramiyeh was ordered deported and then physically removed from the United States by an immigration judge.
Ramiyeh applied for readmission to the United States in 2004 through the U.S. Consulate in Amman, Jordan, using the name, Suleiman Muhammad Abed Alqader, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig R. Gestring, who handled the case.
During that application process, he failed to disclose that he had previously been in the United States or that he had been removed under another name.

Ramiyeh was discovered by federal agents conducting an immigration investigation in Rochester in January. http://www.democratandchronicle.com/article/20110510/NEWS01/110510016/-1/7daysarchives/Palestinian-man-sentenced-false-immigration-document
