Chief U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal sentenced two Mexican nationals on Tuesday for illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien into the United States, according to a prepared statement from the Wyoming U.S. Attorney's Office.

Alejo Mijares-Chaves, 44,  and Arturor Bustos-Alcantar, 42, both of whom had several aliases, were arrested in Wheatland.

Freudenthal sentenced each of them to time served plus 10 days in jail, and they are subject to deportation upon release from custody.

These cases were investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
