JAIL: Fake Immigration Attorney ARRESTED After Allegedly Filing Hundreds of Bogus Asylum Claims

He did it with impunity.

Published

on

An man who posed as an immigration attorney in Florida allegedly filed more than 200 fake asylum applications with the federal government.

Elvis Harold Reyes is being charged with mail fraud, making false statements in immigration documents, and aggravated identity theft. The charges were announced Wednesday in a press release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Reyes, a resident of Brandon, Florida, allegedly sought out illegals who were seeking driver’s licenses and work authorization. He advertised himself as an immigration attorney, a pastor, and a former federal law enforcement officer, according to authorities. He operated a company that was advertised as EHR Ministries Inc.

Reyes is being charged for applications filed with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services that made false claims in order to secure immigration benefits for illegals. He allegedly manufactured claims of persecution and imminent fear of returning to home counties on behalf of his clients.

Reyes apparently didn’t coordinate the sham applications with the applicants themselves, failing to tell them that filing bogus immigration applications is a federal crime.

It appears the man’s goal was to convince the illegals hiring him to retain his services. It’s unclear at this time if any of the fraudulent immigration or asylum applications he allegedly filed were approved by USCIS or other federal immigration agencies.

Reyes could face up to decades in prison for his pervasive defrauding of the US immigration system, with maximum penalties of 15 years for the immigration fraud charges and 20 years on the wire fraud charges.

American asylum laws are regularly abused and utilized as a legal means to illegally enter the country by migrants with dubious claims of persecution. The Supreme Court approved President Donald Trump’s game-changing ‘Stay in Mexico’ policy on Wednesday, forcing migrants to remain in Mexico while their asylum claims run their courses through the court system.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle

This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.

Published

on

It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.

Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.

Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.

The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
