SOUTH BEND, Ind. An illegal immigrant gets 33 months behind bars for helping others like him get registration and plates for their vehicles.
Paulino Ascencion-Apolino, 23, used a loophole that allows people to get vehicle registration without having to provide a valid social security number.
Because businesses dont have social security numbers, Indiana allows them to use an IRS provided Employer Identification Number (EIN) instead.
The IRS allows that EIN to be assigned to people with Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN).
That number is something the IRS typically issues people who do not have or are not eligible to get social security numbers.Ascencion-Apolino would apply for an EIN, using the illegal immigrants ITIN, as if they were forming a Limited Liability Company.
He would then use the document the IRS would generate and send to him in the mail as part of the registration process at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
In addition to this elaborate scheme to avoid providing a social security number, Ascencion-Apolino would forge documents that were used to show residency.
On several occasions his company used a NIPSCO bill with an altered address. Other utility bills were used in the same way for other registrations.

It goes on to say that he has finished high school; is married and in good health; has no substance abuse problems, and has never been convicted of any other crime.( ah, the better life argument. )
Yeah,yeah,yeah, another hardworker only here to corrupt America, by helping his fellow illegals break the laws.
I hope they deport his beaner ass after he completes his sentence.
Cry me a RIVER, Boo Hoo, Poor thing. He should have gotten 9 years.
He only got 33 months??! He’ll be out in 6 on good behavior!
He should be deported and anything he acquired while here seized. Just what is with these felons?
And did they all vote???
But also, notice that they didn’t prosecute him for being an illegal immigrant. As far as the gubmint is concerned, being an illegal immigration ranks the same as a jay-walking ticket.
