A man from Mexico has been sentenced to 10 months in prison for selling fake Social Security cards and permanent resident alien cards.

U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch said Tuesday that 32-year-old Rafael Torres-Moreno admitted that on Sept. 22, 2009, he told undercover officers that could sell them false identification documents for $140 a set. The investigators bought the documents the next day.

Two other men charged in the investigation await sentencing.

I'm afraid we are on just the tip of the iceberg on this. Wonder how many thousands, millions are here illegally but used phony ID to get legal status. You can't blame the employers if they can't tell if their SS no. and green card are counterfeit. But how did they get here in the first place? We need to figure that one out and still need tougher border security. Even that is not fool proof. I think this issue can't be resolved. We just have gone too far on this and can't turn back. Can't wait until Dec. 21, 2012.

You all are getting off topic bashing Bush, Osama, Clinton, and Regan. The article is about a poor Mexican who came to America (illegally) to "have a better life for him and his family" arrested for breaking the law. Amnesty for all illegals!

HW,

That's true, but Clinton is the only president in the last 35 years that eliminated the deficits and started showing budget surpluses.

Whatever he did regarding the economy, we should do again, and more of it, regardless of his many flaws.

Why is it the Dems keep bringing up race? Whats that got to do with anything? There is a general dislike and disrespect because he has already spent all the tax dollars i will ever pay, my childerens tax dollars, and my unborn grandchildrens tax dollars. Hes paying bailout money to corporations that probably should be allowed to go bankrupt...and forcing mandatory health care reform on a majority of Americans who don't want it. I don't care if hes black, white, asian or hispanic....as long as he has a birth certificate showing he's a US Citizen (which he may not).

These types of stories are not helping Obama's political career. I'm sure that Obama's Minister of Propaganda, Robert Gibbs, will smooth out all the wrinkles and say this is "an isolated case". La Raza may help with the legal fees for these guys, that is, whatever pro bono work the ACLU doesn't cover.

May god bless.

" Fake IDs are the root of the underground economy of illegal aliens."

No, the root of that economy is that they cost about a 1/3 as much to hire as someone "legal" does.

This type of crime is a threat to our national and economic security, folks. We need a much longer mandatory minimum sentence for falsifying documents for illegal aliens, followed by deportation across a sealed border.

Ten months is not nearly enough time for this. Fake IDs are the root of the underground economy of illegal aliens.
