GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Two men found working under assumed names at a Pascagoula shipyard will be deported.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1cS3gZq) Chris Chirinos, also known as 41-year-old Jose Miguel Ramirez and 30-year-old Gabriel De Jesus Ascanio-Salto were sentenced to time served Tuesday and turned over to immigration officials.

Court papers show both were employed by Southern Sandblasting and Coatings and have families in South Mississippi.

Homeland Security Investigations arrested them and a third man Jan. 29 in a visit to VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula.

Each of them waived indictment and pleaded guilty to a bill of information, admitting they impersonated U.S. citizens by using the identities of others.

Thirty-three-year-old Luis Alberto Virgen-Gonzalez received the same sentence March 30.
