MOBILE, Alabama Five men who were working at a Satsuma company are among 3,500 illegal immigrants across the country that law enforcement authorities contend obtained fake identification from a Missouri-based fraudulent documents ring.
This morning, Werner Hernandez-Ramirez, 26, became the third local defendant to plead guilty in Mobiles federal court to use of fraudulent documents. He is eligible for probation under advisory sentencing guidelines, and then will be turned over to immigration authorities, who have initiated proceedings to deport him to Guatemala for unrelated violations.
He was just trying to work, defense attorney Greg Hughes said. Its a sad thing in a way. He was not out selling dope.
Earlier this week, Victor Aguilar-Paz, 23, and Jose Angel Cortez-Aguilar, 27, pleaded guilty to the same offense. A fourth man, Jorge Larosa-Nicho, has announced his intention to plead guilty. The final defendant, whose first and middle name are Mauricio Angel, has not been arraigned. According to court records, all five were working for U.S. Coatings, a company that makes coatings for storage tanks and other equipment. Prosecutors contend that the men obtained fraudulent Missouri non-drivers licenses and Social Security cards to evade the federal employment verification system.
According to court records from the federal court in Kansas City, some 3,500 illegal immigrants traveled to St. Joseph, Miss., from all over the country to get fake IDs. Six people from that state have been charged with accompanying the illegal immigrants to the drivers license office under the guise of being interpreters.

Did they use personal information from legal SS"s numbers in order to be able match each illegal with the document fraud closest to age,gender,etc,etc ? ( The defendants would match buyers with documents of people whose ages were close to theirs. They would help the immigrants practice memorizing the names, dates of birth and other information on the birth certificates. They also helped the buyers practice signing the names on Social Security cards and prepare for possible questions by officials in the drivers license office, according to authorities. )
“A judge let the others remain free as their cases proceed.”
Idiot. They’re gone.

They buy fake licenses, they buy our social security numbers even the numbers of children, they are the largest distributors of illegal drugs, they launder billions of dollars, they traffick in human beings which includes prostitution and even child prostitution, they cheat the IRS out of billions of dollars as we have seen with the recent revelation of thousands of refunds originating from single homes, they are involved in ebt fraud. They are parasites on our country.
