US v. Vasquez-Cruz, 11-10467

In a conviction of defendant for illegal reentry in violation of 8 U.S.C. section 1326(a), district court's imposition of a prison term of 24 months is affirmed, as because the record makes clear that the sentencing judge considered the relevant evidence and argument, defendant's claims of procedural error fail, and the district court's within-Guidelines sentence was reasonable in light of the totality of circumstances, taking into account defendant's four prior deportations and five other criminal convictions as well as the evidence of his cultural assimilation and mental capacity.
