Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt) admitted Wednesday that under the Senate immigration bill, forging up to two passports is not a crime, adding that the bill leaves the decision whether to charge someone with passport fraud up to the discretion of prosecutors.
On Capitol Hill on Wednesday, CNSNews.com asked Leahy, One of the provisions has to do with passports; thats an important component. Do you know how many passports someone is able to forge before its a crime?
Leahy said, Well, it depends upon which interpretation is being used. You could have one form which is two, but then there are other criminal conduct that would be involved with that. Cause you give prosecutors a certain amount of discretion, you have two or three different crimes you have committed, so then its [up to] prosecutorial discretion which one they will charge. I mean, I spent eight years as a prosecutor. One of things you learn [is] the importance of that.

Not sure this is the case. .at least John McCain isn’t ..
The answer should be zero. One should send you to the back of the line.
Well he’ll that’s nice to know. I’d love a couple of spares...

Mccain doesn’t know how many homes he owns either.
So the undocumented immigrant gets one forged passport (not a crime) uses it to register to vote - is that a crime?

You tried to tell US, Senator. You were right.
One should send you to prison for not less than 15 years, then back to your country of origin forever.
I suppose they will legalize identity theft too?
