WA Cancels Illegal Alien Journalist's Driver's License That Was Obtained With Help From The Washington Post
Vargas also found work at a Subway restaurant, a Y.M.C.A., a tennis club, and seemingly a number of other positions for more than a decade. Vargas claims that the businesses rarely asked to check his original Social Security card and that, when they did, he gave them the fraudulent photocopy. In addition, Vargas checked the citizenship box on his federal I-9 forms because, as he explained, "claiming full citizenship was actually easier than declaring permanent resident green card status, which would have required me to provide an alien registration number." For this I-9 fraud alone, Vargas can be fined and jailed up to 5 years under 18 USCS § 1001(a). He also is liable for perjury. Time will tell if the federal government feels aliens can openly violate these statutes without fear of being held accountable.
The Washington Post is not the only news agency with lax employment standards. Vargas explains that the San Francisco Chronicle, Philadelphia Daily News, the Seattle Times, the Huffington Post, and The New Yorker also do a poor job screening candidates for employment eligibility.
Thus far, the legal repercussions for all of this illegal activity – other than the driver's license invalidation – do not appear to be forthcoming.
If these violations are not investigated by the authorities, if the aforementioned media outlets don't start using E-Verify, and if Vargas isn't penalized and facing deportation before the end of the year, then the journalist class should not be surprised that the American public continues to feel that our immigration laws are not being taken seriously."
Not a chance. The Obama Injustice Department exists to aid and abet enemies of the United States, both foreign and domestic.
