If duly elected officials, under oath, are aiding anf abetting ILLEGALS to break the law, to obtain unauthorized government benefits using fraudulent documentation, and if elected and appointed officials did, in fact, allow illegals to break the law and allowed illegal access to government agencies, this might be a violation of the Hobbs Act. If elected officials took campaign contributions from illegal aliens, this could be characterized as extortion, and/or bribery, and a violation of the Hobbs Act.
The Hobbs Act was used recently to nail four TENN state legislators and their aides in an extortion scheme. The TENN group was arrested under the federal Hobbs Act, charging extortion, conspiracy to extort and attempted extortion, and accepting bribes as agents of the state. The Hobbs Act covers extortion by public officials, as follows: 2403 Hobbs Act -- Extortion By Force, Violence, or Fear

Public officials on the government payroll misusing your tax dollars are engaged in fiduciary negligence and have placed the financial interests of tax-exempt investors and bondholders of your state's transportation and highway bonds, municipal school bonding, and utilities bonding, in jeopardy.
WHen elected officials ignore illegal aliens registering to vote using phony documentation, and ignored illegal aliens fraudulently voting on bond issues referenda, that might be classified as a felony, and could negate a state's school and municipal subdivisions' tax-exempt bond issues.
The SEC wants to know when the financial interests of tax-exempt bondholders have been jeopardized, and whether other illegalities occured. They should be advised of these concerns. EMAIL enforcement@SEC.gov
Bonding agents, and banks, doing business with states and their municipal subdivisions are registered broker-dealers and members of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). NASD and SIPC should also be contacted regarding your concerns about fiduciary negligence, and use of tax funds for illegal activity.
Banks doing business with your municipalities that are conducting illegal activity are jeopardizing bank patrons, shareholders, and depositors and should be reported as follows:
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is the primary federal regulator for national banks. The OCC's Customer Assistance Group is available to assist customers with questions or complaints concerning national banks. Email to Customer.Assistance@occ.treas.gov.
You can reach one of the OCC Customer Assistance Specialists by calling toll free number, 1-800-613-6743, Monday-Thursday, 9-4, and Friday 9-3.
Moreover, if banks excercised fiduciary negligence and misused the sanctioning power of the FDIC in improper ways, and engaged in illegal activity with government funds, that should also be pursued with the FDIC.
And of course, elected officials fiduciary negligence conducted in collusion with state agencies, banks, and securities dealers that jeopardize tax-exempt bondholders should be reported to the IRS.

Because they have the power of the purse---and control your tax dollars---public officials who represent you are required to be bonded. They might have incurred imprisonment, fines, or other criminal penalties for violating the terms of bonding by misusing your tax dollars.........specifically by aiding and abetting the activities of illegal aliens, and failing to report that crimes were being committed.

Freepers, start your printers!
Thanks for the informative and constructive post.
Great info Liz.........has there been any feedback from anyone using this info to nail some of these public officials yet? As time permits, I plan to make some inquiries with my local officials and I was curious how we get around their stories about having to follow federal law when it comes to dealing with illegals.....such as health care, Motor voter, etc.?
Obtain/Operate vehicles with illegal ID
No problem...er...problemo... here in old Washington, we give illegals drivers licenses, tell police don't ask-don't tell, , have bank loans etc. /s
From soundpolitics.com re WA State:

Mrs. Gregoire promotes entitlements for illegal immigrants
Mrs. Gregoire1 objects to a new federal law that would require Medicaid recipients to document citizenship or legal immigration status, the New York Times reports: "Medicaid Hurdle for Immigrants May Hurt Others"
"This provision is misguided and will serve as a barrier to health care for otherwise eligible United States citizens," said [Mrs.] Gregoire of Washington, a Democrat.
Ms. Gregoire said the provision would cause hardship for many older African-Americans who never received birth certificates and for homeless people who did not have ready access to family records.
The article is full of similar dire predictions. But there is exactly one quote based on actual experience:
In Georgia, Medicaid officials began enforcing a similar requirement in January. Dr. Rhonda M. Medows, commissioner of the state's Department of Community Health, said it had not caused serious problems.
One gets the impression that those who advocate for unlimited entitlements to illegal immigrants simply view them as just another bloc of constituents.

State election officials are not aware of a single documented instance where a non-citizen voted in the governor's race.

Gregoire's "career" was built on Fraud. New opportunities for political corruption can only help further her fraudulent occupation of an office to which she was not elected.

1 If I went to Asia, Europe, or Latin America and demanded their governments to pay for my healthcare, they would laugh at me and deport me.
2 Gregoire is being her normal goofy self, but what do you expect from someone who mismanaged the AG's office for 12 years?
3 Since to qualify for medicaid or medicare, you need to have a social security card, there is already a paper trail
4 There are other valid records than passports
5 If you did not get a birth certificate, there baptism certificates, military records, driver's licensees, social security records, BIA records, et al.
6 Let's see how many individuals there are without standard documents, before we say the rule is impossible to enforce
7 Just like Jim McDermott fights for our parents who get caught in the Medicare/caid Catch 22 form letters, McDermott and the other Representatives will fight on this issue also.
8 Gregoire's been drinking Ron Sims Sound Transit punch.
9 There are probably not that many individuals in the worse case scenario
10 If Greg Nickels has time to fine residents for not properly sorting their garbage/recyclables, he has time to help valid citizens/residents produce suitable alternative documentation
