WELD COUNTY, CO - Arrests continue this weekend in a Weld County tax probe that could affect thousands of immigrants.
Officials say some 1,300 warrants could be issued over the coming months as they investigate phony tax returns filed through a
A Greeley tax preparer who serves Latinos says at least 15 people have already been arrested.
Authorities say some illegal immigrants were using phony Social Security numbers to receive improper tax refunds from the federal government.
Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck says investigators have traced some $2.6 million in payments.
But immigrant advocates in the area say the probe is a backhanded attempt to deport immigrants before the Supreme Court can rule on an identity theft question that could affect the Weld County cases.
They say more than a thousand families could be broken up before the legal questions are ironed out.
Does anybody else get the idea advocates believe all illegals using ID fraud should not face charges on anything here ?
To hell with facing charges, I want public beheadings on pay-per-view.
Get these people out of my country!

My husband just told me a guy who works for him wife got a new job....it is....get this....helping “immigrants” apply for “benefits”....he said I should be nice to her when I meet her.......AAAAGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH
Which court case? And of course the advocates believe all illegals using fraudulent IDs should get off scott free. They also believe we should be doing more for them.

Not only taking our jobs but our welfare benefits, too?
Go parade several of these Mexican mafia thugs stealing our welfare in front of those in South Texas fishing communities who got trailers - but not permission to use them, or those who are waiting 2 years to get disability.

What the heck legal question? They used someone else’s S.S. numbers. Jail and deport them.
The damage the illegals have already done to self employed people is tremendous. Since our government refused to stop these criminals in the first place they ought to give self employed a couple of tax free years.
Bet they are voters as well! Every voter needs to reregister with proof they are an American citizen!
I think they are trying to make us “feel” sorry for them. Let them take their families back to Mexico with them
McCain has supported even the radical measure to provide illegal aliens, even though they have committed identity theft, with SS and other benefits.
You are exactly right about the devastation that self-employed people have suffered because of illegal activity going unchecked, especially in the construction business. My family has taken a tremendous hit.
