Fugitive Captured at Border with Counterfeit Document

(Wednesday, July 07, 2010) contacts for this news release

Blaine, Wash. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers apprehended a Salvadoran man who was wanted in Dallas, Texas, for alleged assault causing bodily injury to a family member on July 3 as he attempted to enter the U.S. at the Pacific Highway port of entry.

CBP officers immediately became suspicious of Francisco Oswald Gallardo, 45, when he presented a counterfeit permanent resident card for identification. Often referred to as a green card, a permanent resident card represents a legal residency in the U.S. but does not convey citizenship.

Gallardo claimed to have been visiting his sister in British Columbia and was returning to his residence in Irving, Texas. Although the permanent resident card was a counterfeit, it did bear Gallardo’s true identity, which, when checked, revealed that he was the subject of a National Criminal Information Center warrant by the Dallas County sheriff’s office.

“Protecting communities throughout the United States is a critical element of our border security efforts.” said Area Port Director Greg Alvarez. “Our officers’ continuing vigilance results in the apprehension of alien fugitives wanted for a variety of crimes as they attempt to enter the U.S. at our ports of entry.”

After verification of the warrant with the Dallas County sheriff’s office, Gallardo was immediately taken into custody by CBP officers and was turned over to the custody of the Washington State Patrol and transported to the Whatcom County jail for extradition to Texas.

The National Criminal Information Center is a centralized automated data base designed to share information among law enforcement agencies. These warrants are for a wide range of offenses and include money laundering, robbery, narcotics distribution, sexual abuse of children, violation of protection orders, fraud, failure to appear, larceny and military desertion.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

I hate that modern 'journalists' couldn't write their way out of a wet paper bag.

When did he cause the bodily injury? July 3rd. Where? Pacific Highway port of entry.

Or maybe not. Idiot 'journalists'.

I'm surprised that they were allowed to question him on such flimsy evidence. They might still be in trouble with the Obama regime.

Man ordered to repay $3M in Calif employment fraud
San Francisco Chronicle | June 26, 2010
FR Posted June 26, 2010 by artichokegrower

A former Marysville resident has been sentenced to prison and ordered to pay back $3 million in fraudulently obtained unemployment compensation. U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner says 31-year-old Manuel Mejia Ordonez was sentenced Friday to eight years and one month in prison for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and identity theft. (Excerpt) Read more at sfgate.com ...

How does a citizen of Mexico make $3 million in unemployment claims? By establishing multiple identities. The guy----Manuel Mejia Ordonez----got eight years for conspiracy to commit mail fraud........and identity theft.

==============================================

May Day Marchers plotting to takeover the USA, raping and killing Americans and shooting cops.

SIGN: "You owe us America. We will shoot more Arizona police until we get free."

========================================

The Obama admin continues to tolerate this ntl-security nightmare of illegals using multiple identities for fear of offending the Mexican government, the National Council of La Raza, and other immigrant advocates....all of whom are providing Democrat voters to endangered Dems. This outrage is burdening taxpayers and polluting our election system----b/c these criminals adopt multiple fraudulent identities.

Evidence shows illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents (which these "poor immigrants" buy from document brokers for several thousand dollars). Illegals also get their anchor babies SS nos. They then use the SS nos to establish fake identities.

====================================

FBI TIP PAGE http://tips.fbi.gov/ (you remain anonymous)

The names of candidates and elected officials suspected of rigging elections w/ counterfeit IDs should be given to the FBI, together with the following information:

===============================================

2 Texans accused of planning to sell counterfeit IDs

NORTH BERGEN -- (AP) 07/21/06---The Pelcastre brothers were a walking threat to national security -- expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, authorities said Thursday. When police stumbled across the pair, the men had turned a hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local identity broker, authorities said.

The brothers, Angel, 31, and Jorge, 34, both of Dallas, were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of government documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the country , including passports and resident alien cards, said state police.

If a terrorist were able to get their hands on this stuff, they'd have free passage throughout the country.

A L/E task force happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in the parking lot of the hotel . Authorities wouldn't identify the hotel by name for fear it could hinder cooperation from other hotels in future investigations or spark retribution from savage blood cartels. The L/E task force regularly runs checks on motor vehicles in area motels.

Members of the task force began watching the cars, a Chevrolet Impala and a Pontiac Firebird, and followed the brothers to an office supply store in a nearby shopping center, where the men purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the brothers to a self-storage facility where they loaded several boxes from a storage unit into one of the cars.

One of the men stood lookout, which heightened police suspicion. Authorities approached the men when they returned to the hotel and questioned them separately. The brothers consented to a search of their cars, hotel room and the storage facility, he said.

Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.

All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a fake document broker for a shipment of 500 Social Security cards.

"They were aggressively selling to brokers. This isn't like selling driver's licenses to individuals. These were multiple layers of high-level documents."

The brothers were being held without bail on charges of possessing fraudulent documents and conspiracy to sell fraudulent documents. Federal charges are also pending against them.

It took my grandfather almost 50 years to earn about one-third of that amount through honest, backbreaking work, frugal living and conservative investments.

Meanwhile the cheap labor dopes wonder why some of us are muttering about treason and dereliction of duty.

I hope he was not a victim of profiling! Would his documents have been scrutinized so closely if he were blue-eyed and blond? Of course not.

Which means that profiling is justified and that profiling works. Most times its used.

If it's good enough for Manuel then it's good enough for Obama. Can you imagine how many years the O could get if he were convicted of all his wrong doings?

You mean these people???????????

Phoenix, Arizona features an astounding annual car theft rate of 57,000 vehicles and has become the new “Car Theft Capital of the World”.

U.S. law enforcement authorities claim that there are now over 1 million members of criminal gangs inside the country. These 1 million gang members are responsible for up to 80% of the crimes committed in the United States each year.

Here they are !!! Take a look !!!

Mexican Reconquista Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz) in the U.S. Congress
American Patrol | open | Glenn Spencer
FR Posted April 29, 2010 by yoe

EXCERPT Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz) is a former member of (MECHA) according to the 1997 "Arizona Daily Wildcat." Did Arizona voters know that Grijalva was involved with an anti-American seditionist organization? Will he denounce MEChA now that he's in Washington? Will he represent rabidly anti-American MEChA viewpoints? Will he violate his oath of offce to represent the interests of Americans?

Grijalva indicates he agrees with the foreign government of Mexico that an investigation is needed into activities of Americans seeking to deter illegal immigration. Read more at americanpatrol.com ...

=========================================

Grijalva supporters-----"just here for a better life"---plotting to takeover the USA.

Reconquista shock troops at Phoenix Capital protest, May 29, 2010.

How did Grijalva get elected? Did he handout our tax dollars in exchange for fraudulent votes?

Cong Grijalva and Ohaha.

Americans DEMAND provisions to secure our elections and protect our tax dollars from latino fraud. Elected officials and candidates who rig elections should be subject to prosecution if they knowingly organized illegals with fraudulent identities, in order to gain public office.

New technology at the border brings up real pictures to match fingerprints and eye scans. If no match is found or person on document doesn’t match person document was issued for then they are caught.
