Korean Illegal Immigrants Convicted for Selling Fake Driver’s Licenses To Other Illegal Immigrants

Here is the case of two South Korean illegal immigrants that I just heard about on the radio today that were arrested last year for selling fake driver’s licenses to other illegal immigrants in California:

Two men have been arrested for their alleged role in a scheme to obtain valid California driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.

Dae Wahn Ahn, 49, from Diamond Bar and 47-year-old Chong Hwan Kim from Norwalk were arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles.

They are accused of using altered Canadian passports and legitimate Social Security numbers to obtain valid California driver’s licenses for illegal aliens from Asia who traveled to Kern County.

The arrests were the result of a 17-month probe by a multi-agency task force, including U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement and Bakersfield DMV investigators. Investigators said the suspects recruited clients through advertisements in Korean newspapers and by word of mouth.

Investigators said the scheme charged clients $3,500 to $5,000 to obtain the licenses and estimated that more than 200 foreign nationals from Korea and China may have exploited the scheme.

“With these arrests and continued enforcement actions, our message is clear- activities related to fraudulently obtaining a California driver’s license simply will not be tolerated,” said George Valverde, director of the California DMV.

Ahn and Kim were arraigned in Bakersfield Thursday on multiple felony counts. The two suspects are both Korean nationals who are in the U.S. illegally after overstaying their original visas.  [ABC 7 News]

Here is more details about the case where they were selling these fake licenses to Korean and Chinese illegals.  Why this case was being brought up on the radio was because these guys received 3 months in jail and will face deportation proceedings.  The argument was that the sentencing was too light considering the amount of fraud they committed.  If you Google driver’s license fraud in California it is amazing how many people have been arrested for this crime to include a number of DMV employees in the state.  Is it any wonder why Republicans complain about voter fraud when all these illegal immigrants with fake driver’s licenses can register to vote in the state?

    But what’s the most often proposed solution to supposed voter fraud? … to have the voter show a valid ID at the polls. Well these guys were obtaining very valid looking IDs. So if these guys intended to vote fraudulently they could have.

    I did a quick query of voter fraud convictions across the country. Of the millions of votes cast, the actual cases where someone who was ineligible to vote attempted to do so are very sparse. In most of those cases the “voter” had a document that would have satisfied as a valid ID. So, how is presenting an ID a grand solution to the scourge of voter fraud?

    Most Koreans and Chinese in the US illegally are not illegal aliens, a legal term for people who enter without inspection. They are illegal immigrants, a colloquial expression for both illegal aliens and visa overstayers. The distinction has one key difference: visa overstayers can adjust status to green cards if they marry US citizens or have a US citizen child 21 or older. Illegal aliens cannot. If they marry US citizens, they must leave to file for an immigrant visa, and when they do, they get a bar on re-entry that requires paying a lawyer thousands of dollars to file a waiver. Thus, adults who game our immigration laws by entering on tourist or student visas to overstay and work illegally can eventually get green cards with no hassle and no penalty, just the filing fees for the paperwork. Meanwhile, young adults brought here illegally as children must pay lawyers to help them jump through extra hoops.

    Maybe they received the light jail sentences because they cooperated with authorities?

    BTW, they were taking out ads in Korean newspapers for illegal US driver’s licenses? Which Korean newspapers accepted ads for illegal activity like this? And don’t try to make the excuse that “all newspapers accept ads for illegal ID’s” because they don’t. So, which Korean newspapers have no problem with running ads for illegal US driver’s licenses?

    Illegal alien arrested, charged with voter fraud

    LAKE COUNTY, Ill. – An illegal alien from the Philippines was arrested
    Thursday morning on a felony complaint charging her with 17 counts related
    to voter fraud in Lake County. The state charges resulted from a joint
    investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE)
    Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Lake County State’s Attorneys
    Office. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) also provided

    Maria Azada, 53, of Grayslake, Ill., was arrested March 17 by ICE HSI agents
    and a Lake County State’s Attorneys special investigator. Azada faces 17
    felony counts in Lake County Circuit Court of perjury, mutilation of
    election materials, and tampering with voting machines in connection with
    illegal voting by a non-U.S. citizen.

    The investigation began in February 2009 when Azada admitted to a USCIS
    officer during an interview for an immigration benefit that she had voted in
    an election. It is illegal for foreign nationals to vote in national or
    state elections in the United States.

    A subsequent investigation revealed that Azada allegedly voted nine times in
    primary, general and consolidated elections between 2003 and 2009. According
    to the arrest warrant, Azada allegedly falsely claimed to be a U.S. citizen
    on two Illinois Voter Registration applications.

    Democratic Rep. Gutierrez says 40 percent of illegal immigrants overstay

    On the July 11, 2010, edition of ABC’s This Week, Rep. Luis Gutierrez,
    D-Ill. — a champion of immigration legislation that includes a path to
    citizenship — faced off with Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif., a leading
    lawmaker who favors prioritizing immigration enforcement.

    At one point, Gutierrez said, “Here’s the problem, and here’s the fact that
    Mr. Bilbray leaves out of this debate. The fact is that 40 percent of the
    undocumented workers in this country didn’t cross that border. They came
    here legally to the United States. They came on a tourist visa. They came on
    a student visa. They came on a temporary worker visa, and they overstayed
    their visa.

    Illegal Immigrants Are Voting in American Elections

    In 2005, the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that up to 3
    percent of the 30,000 individuals called for jury duty from voter
    registration rolls over a two-year period in just one U.S. district court
    were not U.S. citizens. While that may not seem like many, just 3 percent of
    registered voters would have been more than enough to provide the winning
    presiden­tial vote margin in Florida in 2000. Indeed, the Cen­sus Bureau
    estimates that there are over a million illegal aliens in Florida, and the
    U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has prosecuted more non-citizen voting
    cases in Florida than in any other state.

    Florida is not unique. Thousands of non-citizens are registered to vote in
    some states, and tens if not hundreds of thousands in total may be present
    on the voter rolls nationwide. These numbers are significant: Local
    elections are often decided by only a handful of votes, and even national
    elections have likely been within the margin of the number of non-citizens
    ille­gally registered to vote.

    Illegal Voting

    The non-citizen electorate.

    By Hans A. von Spakovsky

    Amid all the talk of new voters becoming involved in the election,
    hopefully one group of voters will not vote in November – non-citizens, many
    of whom are illegally registered to vote all over the country, particularly
    in the southwest. Although there is no reliable method to determine the
    exact number registered aliens, there is evidence that this is a significant
    and growing problem.

    - Hans A. von Spakovsky served as a member of the Federal Election
    Commission and as counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights
    at the U.S. Department of Justice. His new study on “The Threat of
    Non-Citizen Voting” is available at

    NBC2 Investigates: Voter fraud

    Posted: Feb 02, 2012 1:34 PM CST Updated: Feb 02, 2012 5:32 PM CST

    By Andy Pierrotti, NBC2 Investigator

    Two elections supervisors are taking action after an NBC2 investigation
    uncovers flawed record keeping and human error allowing people who are not
    citizens of the United States to vote.

    No one knows how widespread this problem is, because county election
    supervisors have no way to track non-citizens who live here.

    So NBC2 did something election officials never thought to do, and found them
    on our own.

    “I vote every year,” Hinako Dennett told NBC2.

    The Cape Coral resident is not a US citizen, yet she’s registered to vote.

    NBC2 found Dennett after reviewing her jury excusal form. She told the Clerk
    of Court she couldn’t serve as a juror because she wasn’t a U.S. citizen.

    We found her name, and nearly a hundred others like her, in the database of
    Florida registered voters.

    Naples resident Yvonne Wigglesworth is also a not a citizen, but is
    registered to vote. She claims she doesn’t know how she got registered.

    “I have no idea. I mean, how am I supposed to know.”

    Records show Wigglesworth voted six times in elections dating back eleven

    “I know you cannot vote before you become a citizen, so I never tried to do
    anything like that,” Samuel Lincoln said.

    He isn’t a U.S. citizen either, but the Jamaican national says he doesn’t
    know how he ended up registered to vote.

    “It’s their mistake, not mine,” said Lincoln.

    We obtained a copy of his 2007 voter registration application. It’s clearly
    shows he marked U.S. citizen.

    “This is under oath, that document, they are attesting that it is true and
    by falsifying, it’s a third degree felony,” said Tim Durham, Collier
    County’s chief elections supervisor.

    County supervisors of elections tell me they have no way to verify
    citizenship. Under the 1992 Motor Voter Law, they’re not required to ask for

    Plenty of Americans are making fraudulent health insurance claims in Canada (thousands upon thousands of people). Short of closing the borders, these things will happen.

    3 months in jail, you’ve got to be kidding me? Suppose one of these illegal aliens who got a drivers license was a spy or a terrorist? 3 months is no deterrent, 30 years IS a deterrent.

    Every one is illegal if you are not Native American(Indian). So top this bull shit. At least these guys did not kill 60 million Indian nor slaved black Chinese and Mexicans.
