Silvino Barrera-Lopez appeals his sentence imposed following a guilty plea to being a deported alien found in the United States, in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1326(a). Barrera-Lopez contends the district court erred by imposing his sentence consecutively to his undischarged state prison sentence. We have jurisdiction under 18 U.S.C. § 3742, 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and affirm.


Although Barrera-Lopez asked the district court to impose the federal sentence concurrently to the state sentence, he did not mention U.S.S.G. § 5G1.3(c). The government, on the other hand, asked the district court to impose a consecutive sentence under U.S.S.G. § 5G1.3(a). Thus, we review the district court's imposition of the federal sentence consecutively to the state sentence for plain error. See Fed.R.Crim.P. 52(b); United States v. Karterman, 60 F.3d 576, 579 (9th Cir.1995).


We discern no plain error. See United States v. Guzman-Bruno, 27 F.3d 420, 423 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 115 S.Ct. 451 (1994).




We unanimously find this case suitable for decision without oral argument, and thus deny the request for oral argument. Fed.R.App.P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
