US men get jail time for counterfeiting IDs

Two Texas men have been sentenced to federal prison for their part in a conspiracy to produce and transfer false identification documents.

Mario Eleuterio Garcia-Sevilla (44), of Grand Saline and Juan Valazquez Delgadillo (50) of Garland pleaded guilty to the charges in September 2020. They were sentenced to 37 months and 30 months, respectively.

The false documents included US Social Security cards and Permanent Residence cards. Garcia obtained the documents from Delgadillo and then transferred them to individuals throughout the East Texas area. 

“Identification document fraud is a direct threat to the security of the United States and its citizens,” said Assistant US Attorney Nicholas Ganjei. “Disruption of criminal enterprises that aim to compromise document security is, and should be, a primary focus of federal law enforcement.”
