In the wake of usurper Barack Obama's betrayal of law abiding US Citizens and legal immigrants by granting back door amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, we will most certainly see a huge spike in the manufacture, sales and distribution of fraudulent documents. Identity theft is already running rampant and this recent executive order will more than likely open the flood gates to even more fraud. The criminal use of fake identification, a.k.a. fraud, is a felony in most jurisdictions.
Barack Obama has committed what may be the single worst abuse of executive power in American history. If you are "undocumented" and in the United States "illegally", how can you prove you've been here since you were 16 years old and are actually under 30? Obviously, those that are ineligible will resort to crime to get their foot in the door.
Most people living in Arizona already know that identity theft is the number one crime in this state. This fact is directly proportional to our proximity to the unsecured and porous Mexican border. According to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America.
Many identity theft victims are children and, because children don't normally check their credit reports/ratings, the crime often goes undetected for years. I remember one of my former employers receiving a letter from the Social Security Administration inquiring about the four year old child that was working for him. This employer knowingly and routinely hired illegal aliens.
Just wait until these children grow up and want to buy a car, apply for a student loan, start a business or purchase a home. Their “dream” will come to an abrupt end. They can thank illegal alien pandering Barack Obama for destroying their lives before they ever get started living.
Preparing for work permit process
MESA, AZ (CBS5) -Thousands in Arizona will be able to apply for work permits after President Obama announced changes to the immigration policy Friday and people in the Valley are trying to get a head start preparing. Full Story
Less that 48 hours after Obama's televised announcement, we already have a lawyer capitalizing on and exploiting young and desperate illegal aliens. Money is already changing hands. Where there is money to be made, there is going to be more than just a little dishonesty and corruption. Perhaps, we should consider deporting lawyers, as they appear to be worse than the illegal aliens. We would probably have trouble finding a country willing to take them.
An "affidavit" should not under any circumstances be accepted in place of genuine documents that will pass under the most meticulous scrutiny. I'm predicting that this entire verification process will be a joke. Unfortunately, this is not as laughing matter.
The Social Security Number currently being used by Barack Obama does not pass a check with E-Verify, the electronic system the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created to verify whether or not employees possess the required authorization to legally work in the United States.
Approximately half of all illegal aliens using stolen identities actually pass the E-Verify check. I believe this system is intentionally flawed and favors corporations that want to hire illegal aliens. Oddly, we see very few businesses prosecuted for violating the law.
Detecting Fraudulent Documents and Degree/Diploma Mills
The most effective and reliable way of combating fraudulent documents is to adhere to strict document requirements and to insist on receiving credentials in the appropriate form directly from the institutions that issue them. Full Article
Degree mills are criminal organizations that manufacture and sell bogus degrees and transcripts. They are not backed up by school attendance, study or examinations. Despite giving themselves legitimate sounding university names, degree mills operate out of P.O. boxes and mail drops. They are very difficult to trace. We will be seeing lots more of this in the coming months as illegal aliens rush to acquire documents to legitimize their presence in this country.
Federal agents make arrests in fake document mills
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested the alleged ringleader of fake document mills that catered to hundreds of unauthorized immigrants in San Antonio and Austin. Full Story
The Department of Justice prosecutes cases of identity theft and fraud under a variety of federal statutes. In the fall of 1998, for example, Congress passed the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act . This legislation created a new offense of identity theft, which prohibits knowingly transfer[ring] or us[ing], without lawful authority, a means of identification of another person with the intent to commit, or to aid or abet, any unlawful activity that constitutes a violation of Federal law, or that constitutes a felony under any applicable State or local law.
18 U.S.C. § 1028(a)(7). This offense, in most circumstances, carries a maximum term of 15 years' imprisonment, a fine, and criminal forfeiture of any personal property used or intended to be used to commit the offense.
“I'm a 9th generation American and patriot (1737). My forefathers served in the Pennsylvania Militia. On June 27, 1781, they were called to perform a tour of duty. I'm still protecting freedom and securing the border, 275 years later.” --Harry L Hughes III
