Xiquita came to the attention of immigration authorities in March 2017 after an Allamakee County sheriff’s deputy stopped him for speeding in Postville and arrested him for operating while intoxicated. Court records allege he was in the United States illegally.

Authorities determined that Xiquita had used someone else’s Social Security number and a fake permanent resident card to apply for a concrete job in Independence in July 2016.
