GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - An illegal immigrant was convicted Monday of public assistance fraud in Green Bay.
Graciela Antonio illegally received $25,416 in taxpayer-funded public assistance for food and medical bills over three years. According to court documents, the 29-year-old Antonio, who lived in Green Bay, has three children.
Really the victims are the community at large, said Kate Zuidmulder, assistant district attorney for Brown County.
County workers discovered Antonios family should have been ineligible for public assistance, because she was employed under a fake name at American Foods, making $12.65 an hour. Her husband was also seasonally employed as a landscaper, making $12 an hour.
Over a period of time, Ms. Antonio had the opportunity to report income, Zuidmulder said, according to FOX 11. She did say that she purposely did not do that because she didn't want to lose the money that was coming in from the government.

Not convicted for being here illegally, or no mention of it in the title.
No worries because I’m sure this is the only time this has ever happened. Like near where I live, the welfare office at 32-00 Northern Blvd. Queens New York city, every morning I see a huge line of people who look an awfully lot like Mexicans, but I’m soooo sure they are all here legally. I like to tell myself that when I get my daily $150- $200 traffic ticket and/or parking ticket by the city because the city is going broke.
Why hasn't the presumption of innocence kicked in?
I never would have thought of doing what she did, given the opportunity and the rampant success of the practice.

Green Bay has become a haven for illegal immigrants. This is just the first of many such incidents that will transpire in Green Bay. Green Bay has changed a lot from the 1988-1991 when I went to college there.(Nice campus UW Green Bay interconnected by tunnels, so if a student in a wheelcahir did not have to go in the snow in winter). Proctor and Gamble big employer (same building is now American Foods). Paper Industry has changed Fort Howard is now a new company.
I was in Green Bay in January of this year and I hardly recognized it. The mall in downtown Green Bay gone. Larsen Canning gone. Areas that were nice are gone. Downtown Green Bay has become the beginnings of a red light district. I was just shocked.
I have been to the suburbs around Green bay other times and they are nice but the Downtown area is hideous.
Where is all the Packer Money going - DePere and other places. Sure is not Green Bay. The Packers actually are in Ashwaubenon.
$12.65 an hour? I only make $11.00 an hour and yet the pro-illegal crowd will say no Americans will work for that wage.

They don’t have to be here legally to collect all the welfare benefits for their American born spawn. They are however supposed to report income which is what this illegal (and most illegals) didn’t do.
Multiply this by 20 million and you get some idea of the scale of the gang raping of U.S. taxpayers by illegal aliens. And it will soon be MUCH worse, courtesy of Marco Rubio & Co.
Harry Reid once said illegal aliens are ‘freeloaders and scam artists’....and that was probably the only time the old SOB ever told the truth.
“$12.65 an hour? I only make $11.00 an hour and yet the pro-illegal crowd will say no Americans will work for that wage.”
Half the people in my area don’t make that much! And they are all natives!
My point exactly - 21% of the US populations receives a government check of one form or another.
Just think of the amount of cheating among 66 MILLION people...
it’s billions and billions and billions of dollars — which the government taxes from the earning population and transferred to the taking population.
This is the same group which will take to the street in protest when a sane administration proposes to cut back entitlements.
That’s the democraps for you. They won’t even defend American jobs against illegal competition.
“Thats the democraps for you. They wont even defend American jobs against illegal competition.”
If only it were just democrats, we’d at least have a fighting chance...
Grover vs. the Bitter Enders(Grover trying to give Rubio political cover)
NRO ^ | April 9,2013 | Betsy Woodruff
Grover Norquist is known as an anti-tax crusader, but in the coming weeks he will be just as much a pro-immigration crusader, combatting what he calls the bitter enders who oppose comprehensive immigration reform.
Norquist says that hes trying to counteract the effect of a handful of radio talk-show hosts who talk loudly. [snip]
Red the whole thread.
I know all about Grover the islamfacist lover.
