Man with fake papers arrested at Dulles

By Washington Post editors

A Bolivian man was arrested Thursday at Dulles International Airport for allegedly posing as a U.S. citizen, said officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Juan Condori Sejas, 51, was arrested by agents after he attempted to use a Puerto Rican birth certificate and a U.S. Social Security card to acquire a customs seal on his Reagan National Airport employee ID. The seal allows bearers access to restricted security areas.

During routine questioning, Condori Sejas allegedly claimed to have crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in 2006 without inspection and said that he purchased the birth certificate and Social Security card from a human trafficker.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia is prosecuting Condori Sejas for immigration fraud.

Customs and Border Protection placed a detainer on Condori Sejas, who will likely be removed from the United States should he be convicted. Foreign nationals who violate U.S. immigration law may be barred from returning to the United States for a period of no less than five years.
