On Tuesday, the AP reported a story about a Bulgarian man that was caught using a murdered Ohio boy’s identity. While applying for a passport, he was caught on passport fraud and identity theft and later convicted. He came here on an education visa in the 1990s and it is surprising that he has been able to remain here since then.
He is now being handed over to immigration officials — hopefully this leads to his deportation.
Indian Marriage Scam in Northern California
CBS had a story about three people of Indian descent in Sacramento. They were charged with paying American women to involve themselves in a scam marriage with Indian men back in the subcontinent.
The women would be paid anywhere from 5K to 15K to go to India, pose for pictures, and help the man apply for a fiancee visa. It was a sham marriage to bring them into the United States.
People like these make it difficult for honest people to bring their spouses over to this country, or honest students to get a student visa.
CA Bill to Limit Detention of Illegals
There is a bill being drafted by Tom Ammiano that would limit the amount of time an illegal immigrant could be detained.
Although the exact language is not yet finalized, the legislation would … instruct law enforcement agencies not to cooperate with certain detainer requests.
I don’t like this one bit. Ammiano says detention hurts the rights of a lot of nonviolent people involved in petty crimes. But if applied to all is a mistake. Remember Kesler Dufrene of Haiti that killed 3 people after being released?
