Feds Reveal Massive Operation That Saw Illegals Getting Fake Documents

Remember, illegal immigration is not supposed to cause problems for U.S. citizens, and they aren’t really engaged in crime

Feds: Forgery operation produced over 10,000 fake documents

Located in an apartment in a primarily Hispanic town in Oregon, a clandestine lab churned out thousands of fake Social Security cards, drivers’ licenses and immigration documents that were sold around the United States for years.

The operation, revealed for the first time Tuesday in a federal court document, showed that a syndicate based in Oaxaca, Mexico, operated the forged-document factory in Woodburn, a town of 24,000 in an agricultural region a half-hour’s drive from Portland.

Employers, including farms, nurseries and wineries, routinely employ people who are in the United States illegally but who can produce a Social Security card or work visa. Many agricultural employers say it’s not their responsibility — and that they lack the expertise — to determine if the documents are genuine.

The arrest on Sept. 21, 2017, of Miguel Merecias-Lopez in a fast-food restaurant parking lot in Woodburn reveals how, in many cases, such documents are produced. Merecias-Lopez pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Portland to conspiracy to produce false identification documents and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. He had gone to the parking lot to sell more than a kilogram (2.2 pounds) of meth, prosecutors said.

By “fake social security cars”, they mean ones linked to actual citizens, otherwise they wouldn’t pass any sort of backgrounds check, nor pass through to the IRS nor state departments of revenue. This is called “identity theft”, and can cause immense problems for the true owner of the SS#.

“The fraud ring operated in Woodburn for more than a decade and produced over 10,000 fraudulent documents that they distributed in Woodburn or mailed to customers around the United States,” U.S. Attorney Billy Williams and Assistant U.S. Attorney Peter Sax said in the plea agreement posted Tuesday in court documents. Previous detailed court documents remain under seal.

The Fraud Doc Ring produced a wide array of documents, including drivers’ licenses for over 25 different states, Social Security cards, lawful permanent resident cards, U.S. and Mexican birth certificates and marriage licenses.

Just keep pretending illegal immigration is a victimless minor crime, Democrats. Right up till it’s your life getting ruined.

    WE wonder if any of the documents made their way into the hands of Trump’s illegal workers at his resorts and golf clubs? Wouldn’t that be ironic?

    Do you know if Trump INC has conducted an internal investigation of their illegal worker problem? If so, have any of the principals been arrested?

    The US president hired illegal workers, and that’s NOT the worst thing he’s done!

    • david7134 says:

      But Trump is the best president ever, definitely better than the shoeshine boy, the worst ever.. Winning, MAGA.

    • formwiz says:

      Trump Inc can’t arrest their employees, genius.

      You must be talking about the Ozark Mafia hiring a gardener.

      Still lying, liar? Show me one documented occasion where President Trump ever hired an illegal alien. You people are really deranged.

      On a lighter note, Sunday my wife and I took a casual dinner with our business partners at The Cheesecake Factory and I slipped on some spilled pasta and broke my ankle. I got home from the hospital last night. Two titanium rods and 12 screws later I’m hopping around in a boot. I blame Trump. My wife blames Bush. I hope my non-Obamacare insurance covers everything. This could get pricey what with paying for illegals and all.

      Funny, it was snowing like hell and I slipped on spaghetti some kid spilled.

      • Professor Hale says:

        Cheesecake factory insurance should cover everything. You were injured on their property because of their failure to clean up spills. I suspect your insurance will contact their insurance about the details.

      Harvey loves to try to discredit Gateway Pundit. They announced 240,000,000 hits in ’18. A record.

      Apparently, deplatforming isn’t working. And why, if the Lefties are so right, can’t they win over the country (and they’re not, even they’re conceding Trump will be re-elected)?

      Democrats just announced Fox will not be allowed to host one of their debates next year. If they’re winning, why are they so afraid?

      A woman who’s a lifelong Democrat arranged for her dying brother, who isn’t, a phone call from Donald Trump, who told the man, “You’re a champ”, chatting with him as if he were an old friend. If the demos are so compassionate, why don’t they have any compassion?

    WHAT?? ILLEGALS breaking the LAW by entering ILLEGALLY are NOW buying ILLEGAL ID’s?

    YOU mean these wonderful people who never break any laws and when they do they are simply told to come back to court in a month only to never show up. Its such an egregious system we have in place.

    Can you imagine if every criminal was treated the way Illegals are treated. Commit murder. Released. Helped to escape by sympathetic jail workers and then never return for their court date.

    Bizarrely they then are captured accidently put back in the court and RELEASED AGAIN. I want this to stop, or else I want every American to get the same treatment. In fact I am surprised criminals have not take this to the courts.

    I hear the 9th court in California would probably stay every execution and release every non white being held in jails all over the country.

  3. JGlanton says:

    I had this discussion with my dad last year. I brought up that illegals consume far more taxpayer money than they pay out in taxes. He said that they do pay their share of taxes. I said that if they do pay any taxes then they are using stolen SSN’s and fake IDs, which is criminal fraud and identity theft. Pffft, he didn’t seem to care at all about those crimes.

      My family owned slaves and I want my reparations for them being taken.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        My great-grandfather (on my mother’s side) from Kentucky caught his “master” raping a young girl and snapped his neck. He escaped with his family north to Illinois.

          Sure he did. Right. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

        • Kye says:

          If one agrees with “reparations” which would mean those alive today would be held financially responsible for slavery then it follows you should be held responsible for your great-grandfather’s commission of murder and be taken henceforth and hanged.

          Reparations are a one time payment for a previous wrong. The left and their modern plantation folk don’t want reparations, they want Tribute. A half million white people died to free the slaves. Not good enough. They were given the nation of Liberia as a place to return home to and build their own country from what they had learned. They declined. They were terrorized by the KKK an arm of the Democrat Party and lived under Jim Crow a manifestation of Democrat policy then herded into urban ghettos to facilitate their
          receiving Democrat welfare programs as payment for voting as a Democrat block. They were given preferential treatment in government contracts, government and private hiring, through the Affirmative Action Program and through quotas and set asides. They also have points added to their SAT’s to compete with Whites and Asians to unfairly gain admission to college. All of this for people who never experienced slavery personally and paid for by citizens who never personally owned a slave. The totality of these programs was to cause hate and suspicion between the races, and create pockets of Democrat controlled poverty all with a price tag in the Trillions. NOW they want reparation? Only if they immediately discontinue all their racist black-based organizations like the SPLC and the NAACP, immediately emigrate to Liberia and renounce their American citizenship.

          We are already being held captive with “Tributes” which go on and on with no end in sight. We already can see regardless of how much money we spend on them or how many advantages we bestow upon them they are both ungrateful and insatiable. A one time payment of Reparations followed by them going somewhere they actually love would be an improvement beyond description.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            You describe a Black man stopping a brutal rape of a child as murder? We’re not surprised.

            Conservatives, whether Dem or Repub, are defined by their racism. Now you want to “send ’em back where they came from!”

            Kye typed: “them going somewhere they actually love”

            You don’t think Black Americans love America?

            Kye typed: “A half million white people died to free the slaves”

            Some 330,000 white northerners died during the civil war, and some 30,000 Blacks died fighting for the north. The confederates didn’t die “to free the slaves” but died to keep them enslaved.

            So white people with the approval of the USA enslaved hundreds of thousands of people, but the descendants of the enslaved should stop being so “uppity” and just be grateful since it was white people who “freed them”. Lynching and Jim Crow and “separate but equal” and real estate “redlining”… all white people oppressing Black people. There’s little question that the policies to give the US Black population a hand up have not always been effective. But you will need evidence to support your claim that race problems in the US, both social and economic, are a result of liberals.

            Members of the working classes, both white and Black, need a better government and better policies.

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            So you agree that I should get my reparations. And that you should be hanged.

        • formwiz says:

          With his family?

          Sounds like Zippy’s story of how his uncle liberated Auschwitz.

      • Professor Hale says:

        Did they fight for the North or the South? Funny (ironic) thing about the war of 1861. The North resorted to enslaving their citizens to fight it and the South resorted to freeing their slaves to fight it. Then, the North, after “freeing” the slaves, re-enslaved them to work for the Northern Army.

        • david7134 says:

          PH,
          Consider this the remaining US, after the South left, had no problem with slavery. So they are fighting the South to free the slaves, does not compute. They then say something about the Emancipation Proclamation, but that did not free a single slave.

  5. Kye says:

    30,000 blacks died of disease in the Civil War. 10,000 died in combat. Get your facts straight. 300,000 Confederates were killed by unions to free the slaves. They all died to free the slaves like it or not. In fact, it could be argued the Confederates were MURDERED by unions while protecting their property. However, you being a white hater and America hater cannot possibly understand that most of the Civil War crap you see is propaganda written by the victors. 97% of Confederate soldiers DID NOT OWN ONE SINGLE SLAVE. They were fighting for the rights of their states to be sanctuary states for illegal aliens in the 21st century. Which I’m sure you’re for.

    And yes, you should be hanged because according to “reparations” you are responsible for your ancestor committing murder. Which is exactly what you said he did when you said he “snapped” the guys neck.

    He’s speaking of what the law says, genius.

    Because they’re claim they hate this racist place so much. Demos are worse. They talk blacks into self-extermination and get their Negro vassals to aid them.

    Kye typed: “them going somewhere they actually love”

    You don’t think Black Americans love America?

    You don’t.

    No, most white Southerners died because they had been invaded by a Northern army for exercising their Constitutional right to secede.

    So white people with the approval of the USA enslaved hundreds of thousands of people, but the descendants of the enslaved should stop being so “uppity” and just be grateful since it was white people who “freed them”. Lynching and Jim Crow and “separate but equal” and real estate “redlining”… all white people oppressing Black people. There’s little question that the policies to give the US Black population a hand up have not always been effective. But you will need evidence to support your claim that race problems in the US, both social and economic, are a result of liberals.

    No, blacks were enslaved because Moslem raiders captured them and sold them to merchant captains. These captains crossed the Atlantic and sold them to British colonists (yep, Harvey knows as much about history as he does about science).

    And the evils of the post-Reconstruction South were not the doing of Northerners or Westerners, so reparations should only be the responsibility of the South. Too bad people have moved since then.

    As for “policies to give the US Black population a hand up”, they’ve been used to keep the black man down, to keep him in thrall, to exterminate him.

    And, yes, it’s not hard to find evidence the Left has kept blacks down. All of the hate-mongering since the 60s, which Crusader Rabbit so joyously espouses, are the work of the Left.

    Look up Walter Williams’ work on welfare pushers and poverty pimps.

    Members of the working classes, both white and Black, need a better government and better policies.

    Luckily, Donald Trump is providing that.

    • david7134 says:

      75% of free blacks owned slaves, look up Melrose Plantation, so how do we separate out those. Then the original reason for the early KKK was the seizure of white civil rights, active war against whites, illegal seizure of white property, Harrison of towns by black troops and many other wrongs. So who pays for that?
