Illegal From St. Lucia Isidore Isidore To Be Deported Back For Second Time Since 2014
CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A St. Lucia native who was expelled from the territory in 2014 for “moral turpitude” was given 137 days in prison on Thursday for coming to the United States illegally.
Isidore Francis Isidore, 61, of St. Lucia, was sentenced today for improper entry by an alien, U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert said.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller sentenced Isidore to 4.5 months’ imprisonment. Judge Miller also ordered Isidore to pay a $10 special assessment.
An immigration detainer was placed on Isidore, and his prior order of removal will be reinstated.
Isidore will be taken into custody of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and deported to St. Lucia.
According to court documents, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents encountered Isidore on a private vessel in St. John on April 28, 2018.
On August 20, 2018, Isidore pleaded guilty to improper entry by an alien. Court documents showed that Isidore had been removed from the United States and was ordered not to re-enter the country without permission from
the United States Attorney General or the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Isidore improperly entered the United States by failing to appear at a designated port of entry and failing
to have permission to enter the United States.
The case was investigated by U.S. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David White.
