More innocent people may have had their identities stolen by undocumented immigrants and Democrats don't care at all.
One Nicaraguan and 14 Mexican suspects are now in custody after U.S. Border Patrol officials say they allegedly used fraudulent documents at the Gulf Coast Safety Council in St. Rose Wednesday morning.
Federal agencies found the suspects at the facility, which provides industry-specific safety training for local employers. Investigators say the suspects appeared to have counterfeit social security cards and drivers licenses.
In a statement, U.S. Border Patrol New Orleans Sector Chief Gregory Bovino said:
“These arrests represent a beautiful example of the Department of Homeland Security components working together to ensure national security. Illegal aliens can use fake identification to thwart the E-Verify System used by some corporations. Some of these companies constitute critical infrastructures, such as chemical plants or refineries, where the potential exists for possible terrorist attack or sabotage.”
Bovino added that this type of identity fraud can be detrimental to U.S. citizens.
“The damage stemming from illegal aliens fraudulently using social security numbers can cause serious problems for United States citizens well into the future, including tax issues and poor credit ratings,” he said.
The arrests come a few weeks after a massive ICE raid rounded up a suspected 680 undocumented workers at 6 different food plants in Central Mississippi.
Our Voice Nuestra Voz is a Spanish-speaking parent advocacy group in New Orleans. They condemn the arrests made in St. Rose and released the following statement:
"Our Voice Nuestra Voz is vehemently and disgustingly appalled by the kidnapping of 15 asylum seekers, including one child, by U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) New Orleans agents. USBP New Orleans sector Chief Gregory Bovino’s praise of agents’ actions highlights the despicable lack of humanity and evil within ICE and border patrol operations.
That Bovino could describe the ripping apart of families and the destruction of lives as “beautiful” is particularly horrifying. Furthermore, to suggest that these employees are benefiting from their undocumented status is false.
