The public have ridiculed the leader of the English Defence League, Stephen Lennon, after he pleaded guilty to using someone else's passport to enter the United States.
Lennon, 30, pleaded guilty to possession of a false identity document with improper intention, contrary to the Identity Documents Act 2010, at Southwark Crown Court, and has been sentenced to ten months in prison.
Mr Lennon, who had previously been refused entry to the US, used a passport in the name of Andrew McMaster to board a Virgin Atlantic Flight from Heathrow to New York in September.
He was caught when customs officials at JFK airport took his fingerprints and realised he was not Mr McMaster. Lennon was asked to attend a second interview but left the airport, entering the US illegally.
The conviction has been found ridiculous by thousands who have taken to social media to poke fun at the political leader, and the irony that he has been found guilty of immigration fraud given his views on immigration in the UK.
