    Group Of Illegal Aliens Caught With Fake Green Cards At DMV

    Group Of Illegal Aliens Caught With Fake Green Cards At DMV

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — State officials say four Mexican nationals were taken into federal custody after they were caught trying to obtain
    New Mexico driver’s licenses using false residency documents
    Tuesday – the day Gov. Susana Martinez signed a new measure revising the
    state’s immigrant driver’s license law after years of pressuring lawmakers.

    The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department said two of the Mexican nationals used fraudulent lease agreements to try to obtain New Mexico
    driver’s licenses at an Albuquerque MVD location. Officials say they were caught with a third person, who already had fraudulently obtained a
    New Mexico driver’s license. They were taken into custody by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

    State officials say all three lived in Arlington, Texas, and previously had been deported.

    A fourth person lived in Grand Prairie, Texas.

    Their names were not released.

    Just last July, a New Mexico man pleaded guilty to running an illegal enterprise in which he sold fraudulent documents for obtaining New Mexico
    driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants amid the state’s recent clampdown on driver’s license fraud.

    Eduardo Chavez, 34, was arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents in November 2014 and indicted on six charges, including forgery and possession
    of a forged license, in January, court documents showed, according to The Associated Press. He was sentenced to three years of supervised probation.

    “He (was) supplying residency documents to people who do not live in New Mexico, and they are trying to obtain licenses illegally,” Ben Cloutier, a
    spokesman for the Taxation and Revenue Department, told the Journal at the time.

    The phony documents, which Chavez sold for about $1,000 and were used by undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses from the state,
    included fake water and power bills.

    New Mexico in 2003 became the first state to allow licenses to be issued to immigrants in the United States illegally to curtail the number of uninsured
