Now this is worrisome. Illegals getting government issued IDs which will let them stay, work and vote because, after all, it's a government issued ID.

These 14 got caught but how many more are out there doing the same ?

Phillips said in a written statement. "Conspirators operated a vast black market where identities were bought and sold. It's crucial for business and public safety that we maintain the integrity of government-issued IDs. Those who profited from this illegal scheme will be held accountable."

Charges in immigration scam filed against 14 people in Kansas City

I posted about this yesterday.

I agree...this sort of thing is a huge concern.

It's OK.

It's interesting that no one on here cares. You'd think the regular posters on the illegal immigration forum would be infuriated about something like this.

Of course we care and are outraged. As for myself I don't often comment on new's stories about crimes that illegal aliens commit either. That doesn't mean I don't care obviously because I vehemently object to illegal immigration. I have often said that the employers (and accomplices such as those in this incident) and the illegals are equally guilty.

Here's another one I found. Note that the perpetrators were each charged with 1 count with the max sentence at 15 years.
AP Newswire | Stars and Stripes (http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/C/CB_PUERTO_RICO_DOCUMENT_FRAUD?SITE=DCSAS&SECTION=H OME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&utm_source=feedburner&utm_med ium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+tbo%2Fap%2Fworld+%28 AP+World+News%29 - broken link)


Considering no one gets the max and there were obviously numerous documents that changed hands I think 1 count is very low. Hell, they will probably plea bargain and get probation. And citizenship to boot LOL.

Sorry, I don't comment much because I just get too depressed.

Only now the corruption has infiltrated USG offices and they are getting government issued ID's.

How is an employer to know it's the result of fraud ? They don't.

Almost all illegals are commiting felony document fraud.

Yes, we all should be outraged over this.

Illegals are being encouraged by the federal government to break any law they please and commit crimes that would get American citizens prison time.

The violent cartels control much of the stolen ID business. Illegals will gladly associate with their violent cartels to be smuggled over the border but also for their stolen social security numbers, stolen border crossing cards, and any kind of document the cartel will get them.

This is all about organized crime because that controls all this.

I've been too busy watching world events, didn't even know about this happening in my own town. Thanks for the heads-up.

Oh, wait, it happened in St. Joseph. (I-29 corridor north for illegals migrating)

"St. Joseph was the hub of a criminal conspiracy for thousands of illegal aliens who traveled to Missouri from across the country," Phillips said in a written statement.

Those who profited from this illegal scheme will be held accountable."
