You can bet on that. It wouldn't be hard to catch some of the fraud. The clerks will actually advise illegals to find someone with the same last name who will "lend" an electric or water bill that they can submit as proof of residency. The schools along the border do this also, they know full well many reside outside the school district when enrolling kids and they will coach them on how to commit fraud. No regard for tax payers at all.

Oh my word, 5 people arrested, out of a population of over 2 million, it's practically a crime wave! Whatever shall we do?

The best way to eliminate this problem is for the surrounding states to pass laws similar to New Mexico's 10-year-old law which makes Driver's Licenses available to undocumented immigrants. It is in the public's interest to have them be tested on road knowledge and driving skills, rather than forcing them to drive... and drive they will... without benefit of any license at all.

Yes facilitating criminals is always a better approach than enforcing laws and holding them accountable.
Lets see. It is in the publics interest to leave your doors unlocked so that burglars don't have to break in and break in they will.
It is in the publics best interest to do away with speed limits so speeders won't have to speed and speed they will.
It is in the publics best interest to do away with private savings accounts so thieveves won't have to steal and steal they will.
No what we need to do is enforce our laws, punish criminal behavior. Make E-verify mandatory for all employers, land lords and schools. Make life impossible and the illegals will self deport. That is what is in the best interests of the United States of America. It may be hard on illegals and those who support them, but hey next time do it the right way.

Why have laws at all, just get rid of all of them....

If you're state only requires something as simple as a utility bill or a SS number they need to move to an ID that requires a birth certificate, naturalization papers etc.

Here in PA while it won't prevent someone from obtaining a fraudulent ID they use facial recognition technology. Once you have obtained a fraudulent ID you have precluded yourself and whoever you are impersonating from ever getting a legitimate one.

Uh; it's better that ILLEGAL aliens have to "hide in the shadows" and face being arrested if "contacted" by the cops for anything then deported.

Couldn't agree more and just because these 5 were caught doesn't mean that there aren't thousands more like them that haven't been caught doing the same thing. In fact I would bet that is the case.

silly story... "A grain of sand was found in Arizona" makes about as much sense
