Defendant's conviction and sentence for illegal reentry following deportation are affirmed, where: 1) the district court properly admitted a prior judgment against defendant to prove alienage because it instructed the jury to consider it only for that purpose; and 2) the district court properly considered unconvicted criminal conduct in enhancing defendant's sentence.
