There are those who claim the illegals are only coming to work. Obviously that is false. This also shows how careless the unemployment office agents are when handing out this money.

And where are all those who want something done about the incompetence of ICE agents who didn't pick up on the lying 15 year old's claims she was an illegal -- how about investigations and firing of incompetent unemployment benefits agents who couldn't spot this guy's lies?

The vast majority of illegals are here to financially rape, pillage and destroy this country. They could care less about America. They simply want what we have and will stop at nothing to achieve their selfish desires. It's way past time to blow out the lamp. We don't need anymore tired, poor, uneducated illegal aliens pooring into this country.

Yes. I'm beginning to think it's a rather rare illegal who is here not committing any other fraud, just working off the books but paying into social security and FICA taxes AND paying for his own health insurance so that he would not be a burden on taxpayers.

Of course I live on the border where the Medicaid cases are sky high, food stamp and WIC use is absurdly high. It doesn't look to me like the immigrants are coming to pay their own way for their costs at all.

The tax fraud perpetrated by illegal aliens in this country is costing us billions annually. I speak as a former tax fraud investigator for the IRS.

Unemployment fraud happens. Often uses illegals as the straw workers. But the perps are seldom illegal. Big mob went down recently in the west. More than a million dollars.

These frauds may well occur. Used to be a special of some of the gypsy groups. But they are relatively sophisticated and generally are not pulled off by the normal illegal alien. He is more likely to end up the straw worker holding the bag and no money.

I think it safe to say that the majority of illegals are committing fraud of some kind just to live here. So I am not at all surprised that 1 was caught committing fraud for unemployment.
