Predictable Fraud Exposed

Since even the most lunatic legislators aren't declaring that "There Shall Be Open Borders,"(you would need to be really crazy to do that) the threatened amnesty is only for illegals who are in the US now, it doesn't cover any future invaders. Of course, all they would need was a piece of paper to say that they'd been in the US before the qualifying date, and illegals have lots of pieces of paper. This Washington Times story is only the tip of that particular iceberg, but it demonstrates what we've been saying about the possibilities of fraud implicit in Amnesty.

Amnesty' fake papers pledged in wiretap By Stephen Dinan and Jerry Seper June 27, 2007

ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: The head of a Mexican forgery ring was convinced he could make phony documents that illegal aliens could use to indicate fraudulently that they were eligible for a new amnesty, says a government affidavit recounting wiretapped phone calls the man made.

Julio Leija-Sanchez, who ran a $3 million-a-year forgery operation before he was arrested in April, was expecting Congress to pass a legalization program, which he called "amnesty," and said he could forge documents to fool the U.S. government into believing illegal aliens were in the country in time to qualify for amnesty, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent said in the affidavit.

In recounting a wiretapped telephone conversation, ICE agent Jason E. Medica said he heard Mr. Leija-Sanchez tell an associate the forgery ring could "fix his papers" to meet the requirements of a legalization program such as the bill the Senate is debating today.
