Guatemalan had weapons convictions in Phoenix

A 30-year-old Guatemalan man with weapons-related convictions was sentenced to two years in prison for illegal re-entry of a felon, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Friday.

Nogales Station Border Patrol agents apprehended Allan Yair Najera Valenti on May 12. A records check showed Najera was convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm in 1998 in Phoenix. He was sentenced to 15 months in prison. In 2009, he was convicted of misconduct involving a weapon in Phoenix and sentenced to 18 months in prison, the Border Patrol said.

Najera was sentenced for illegal re-entry on Nov. 8. After serving his sentence, Najera will be removed from the United States and will be banned for life from all legalization processes without a waiver from the U.S. Attorney General, the Border Patrol said.
