Now we know the answer to some of the voting irregularities.

Loretta and Linda Sanchez were not available for comment.

Wonder if they can find the records of the fake cards? If yes, then they should be able to track down the people who are using them. Jail time, deportation? Probably not. The local and Fed government have no desire to prosecute.

Soon the American People will come of age, again.
Does anyone think our leaders love us?
On or Before 2014, all Americans will know the answer to the above question.

The government ain’t going to touch the thousands who bought the fake social security cards.

Illegals are above the law.

US citizenship has become meaningless when illegals have more rights than US citizens.

This is the biggest threat to our republic.

Everything else is superfluous.

If conservatives don’t get that protecting our law, territory and sovereignty from foreign criminals is the CAUSE of our lifetime, then we really are done as a country.

the tipoff that something was wrong should have been that she’s 66 and still working for the gov’t, instead of retired... :)

(actually only 29 years service so maybe it makes sense, topping up that pension...)

Same thing happened a few years ago in Arizona when they caught state employees selling Arizona driver’s licenses. I think they were put on “admin leave with pay” for a while. The liberal “media” didn’t let much out about how things went down.

Another example of why so-called real ID is a bad idea.

I guess that the USG does not audit their employees. They must figure that every SS Card is a revenue earner.
If we had real journalists out there they would be following up on this kind of crime and digging to find out what the USG is doing to track down the criminals who bought them.

A woman who worked at an Albuquerque New Mexico motor vehicle department was busted a year or two ago for the same damned thing.

They had a raid here. Supposedly caught over 20 employees making big bucks selling licenses to illegal aliens. That’s about as far as the liberal “media” took it. I never heard how things turned out. Janet Incompetano was the governor at the time so I imagine she handled it.

REFERENCE At a summit held last May, the Guatemalan AG for Human Rights said that 10% of Guatemala's population has relocated to the U S. About 60% currently in the US do not possess legal immigration documents. A 2005 study by the Intl Organization for Migration, says the Guatemalan population here in the US numbers 1,364,000 persons.

The study found that the vast majority of Guatemalan immigrants in the US send money back home, to the tune of $3.6 billion last year, alone. NOTE Do not forget, thousands of Guatemalans came here on ‘temporary status’ after some ‘natural disaster’. They didn’t go home, and neither will the millions of Haitians.


REFERENCE The Guatemalan government prints and distributes passports for its citizens living in the United States through a private company, De La Luz, in Metairie, La. The company sent the new passports in Federal Express packages to the Guatemalans who had applied for them. At least 30 packages could not be delivered to the addresses listed, said a FedEx spokeswoman. FedEx employees opened several packages searching for better address information, she said...

THE NEWEST SCAM TO GET ON THE US GRAVY TRAIN Pleading "domestic violence" to gain US asylum. Whining about "Asylum" revs up the US gravy train bigtime.

"Guatemala Domestic violence victim granted asylum in US" Dec. 16, 2009.

After "suffering 10 years of extreme sexual, physical and mental abuse at the hands of her husband," Rody Alvarado fled her native Guatemala in 1995 and applied for "asylum" in the US.

After a torturous 14-year battle with federal officials over whether domestic violence qualifies for refugee status, an immigration judge granted Alvardo's application and she will remain permanently in the United States (sucking off taxpayers forever.)

Alvarado said in court papers her "physical, mental and sexual abuse" began soon after she married a former military man when she was 16.

THIS GETS BETTER She was so "desperate and fearful" that she fled to Brownsville, Texas, without her children. She said she was stopped by a Border Patrol official but allowed to proceed after "promising to report to an immigration office."

NOW GET THIS She boarded a flight to San Francisco because it was the destination of other Guatemalans traveling with her. "She randomly met a native Guatemalan awaiting the arrival of her daughter-in-law. The woman invited Alvarado to spend the night, and she ended up staying with the family for two years." (Watta coincidence.)

UPSHOT The woman now gets SS checks, welfare, housing assistance, Medicaid, food stamps, blanketed w/ US govt benefits paid for by US taxpayers.......forever. Soon they will all be here. Hubby will "suddenly" become a loving spouse once the US tax dollars start rolling in. When the kids arrive, they'll get SSI for faking ADD. The husband and other relatives will get "injured"---in order to suck up SSI, as well.

ICE should send this phony back ASAP.

Two Texans busted in bogus ID operation in NJ

NORTH BERGEN, NJ -- July 21, 2006 -- Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, authorities said. The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker.

The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the US, passports and resident alien cards, said state police. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. Authorities wouldn't identify the NJ hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution. The Drug Interdiction Task Force, regularly runs checks.

The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. Authorities approached the Texas brothers when they returned to the NJ hotel and questioned them separately. The Texas brothers consented to a search.

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 NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 Social Security cards.

Why did it take 29 years to catch the perp?

Pretty slow justice for the American citizens.
