A federal judge has sentenced a Chicago man to three years in prison for a nearly half-million dollar fraud scheme involving the Illinois Department of Employment Insurance.

Federal officials say 34-year-old Robert Cisneros was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to mail fraud in January. Prosecutors say because of Cisneros the department paid the insurance money to about 57 ineligible claimants who weren't legally allowed to work in the U.S.

Cisneros also was ordered to pay restitution to the department.

Not only are illegal aliens getting billions of dollars in tax refunds from the IRS for claiming dependents in Mexico, they are also siphoning money from state unemployment commissions. Makes you wonder how many $millions are being bilked in this manner nationwide. Makes you wonder how many illegals are getting vet disability benefits, welfare, social security checks, or govt retirement checks through scams like this. We already know they get free medical, in-state tuition, and subsidized housing.

What exactly is the true cost to each U.S. tax payer for the known and yet unknown, scam (and in some places allowed) government payouts to illegal aliens?

In California alone the yearly cost of illegal aliens is in the billions.

And this doesn’t count the decline in the quality of life, the graffiti and the gang culture that came with them.
