Immigrants, National Guardsman Busted for Trucker License Fraud

Here's a story from the Miami Herald that's worth keeping track of for coverage in the larger mainstream media, particularly the networks. I highly doubt this story will be a priority for the MSM, although I'm sure conservative bloggers and perhaps immigration reform activists will make sure the American people become aware of it:

Hundreds of wannabe truckers took a detour on the way to the DMV and got bogus commercial driver's licenses, thanks to an Army National Guard sergeant.

Friday morning, authorities threw up the stop sign.

In a series of early morning raids throughout Miami-Dade County Friday, authorities from federal, state and local agencies arrested five people they say obtained licenses fraudulently. Two others were taken into custody later.

More arrests are coming.


Often disoriented, the suspects were allowed to get dressed before they were cuffed and taken in for questioning. While it is not believed that any people arrested Friday are in the country illegally, some are not U.S. citizens and face deportation if convicted of a felony.

The arrested were: Gregory Diaz, 23; Lina Belkis Diaz, 43; Luis Enrique Diaz, 38; Jesus Luis Montesino, 48; Adalberto Ramos, 40; Jacinto Ramos, 39; and Jose Fernandez, 24.

These are just a handful of nearly 200 people the state has targeted for purchasing waivers through Baez.
