Description: Syracuse, NY - The United States of America charged Alfredo Carballo Nava with immigration fraud.

A jury convicted Alfredo Carballo Nava, age 26, a citizen of Mexico staying in Homer, New York, of one count of immigration fraud for using a counterfeit permanent resident card. The jury acquitted the defendant of one count of social security fraud.

Evidence presented during the two-day trial established that, in 2008, Carballo Nava unlawfully entered the United States and obtained a counterfeit permanent resident card. This document contained obvious errors including an incorrect date of birth, incorrect date of entry into the U.S., and a fingerprint that did not belong to Carballo Nava. In 2019, after arrest on another matter, an investigation revealed that Carballo Nava used the counterfeit permanent resident card in 2017 to obtain employment in Cortland County.

Carballo Nava faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The defendant may also face immigration proceedings that could result in his removal from the United States[1]. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statutes the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and other factors.

This case was investigated by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Social Security Administration-Office of Inspector General, United States Citizenship and Immigrations Services, and the City of Cortland Police Department.
