Third Plea in Scheme to Funnel IDs to Illegal Immigrants via the Virginia DMV

Matt Zapotosky, Washington Post, November 7, 2013

A third person pleaded guilty Thursday to participating in a conspiracy to get authentic state IDs for illegal immigrants by bribing a sympathetic Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles employee.

Noemi Barboza, 42, pleaded guilty to a bribery conspiracy charge, admitting that she often drove illegal immigrants to the Fairfax DMV location where an employee would approve their applications for driver’s licenses, learner’s permits and identification cards knowing they could not prove legal presence in the United States. The applicants paid bribes of few thousand dollars to Barboza’s husband or another person, who split the money with the DMV employee.

The employee, 45-year-old Maria Cavallaro, and Barboza’s husband, 42-year-old Jose Calderon, pleaded guilty to their roles Wednesday, admitting they helped obtain documents for as many as 300 people and netted tens of thousands of dollars for themselves. {snip}

    This situation is going to get much worse in Virginia now, thanks GOP establishment for leaving Cuccinelli hanging with no support. You hate the Tea Party so much you would rather have a Democrat win – 3% we lost by 3%. I know you party hacks probably know exactly how much money you could have spent in the last month to pick up that many votes. I am not going to forget that betrayal. I really hate seeing former Confederate states turn blue.

      The Repub establishment strongly favors large-scale immigration. Listen to the Chamber of Commerce bang on about how necessary it is. Of course they’re going to oppose those who oppose their cheap-labor policies. There’s no hope in the party system for stopping the Mexicanization and Indianization of the US.

    Helpin’ out their peeps and making some bling. Diversity in action!

      • Not Vincente Fox?

        Or does it even matter?

        • Oil Can Harry

          I did a google search and it appears the phrase was uttered by Calderon, successor to Vincente “Crazy Like A” Fox.

    And where voters are required to present identification, a driver’s license is sufficient. Right?

    • WR_the_realist

      Of course, that’s too much for the Democrats. In their view, an illegal immigrant shouldn’t have to go to the bother of getting false identity to vote.

  • Just some anchor babies or asylum seekers running a little side business out of the DVM?

    DMV=Department Mexican Voters.

    La Raza aiding and abetting their fellow La Raza. What a shocker. This is who the DMV hires, mexicans who are either illegal themselves, or the byproduct of illegal immigration, aka anchor babies. Perhaps Bossman can stop by and remind us what a blessing these parasites are.

  • MBlanc46

    First we let some of them in, then they conspire to open the gates and let the rest in.

    • WR_the_realist

      One of the illegal immigrant women who got the Reagan amnesty now has a radio show (in Spanish, of course) where she warns illegals where the border patrol is, and by implication, where they aren’t.

        Do you know her name?

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    She will have to answer for her crimes, but Governor Moonbeam and the moonbat California Legislature just did the exact same thing to the applause of the MSM.

  • gregCall

    Seeing all the names mentioned as charged I suppose we can add identity fraud as one of the jobs we need illegals for that Americans won’t do.

    These people need to be arrested for treason and/or deported to Mexico.

  • One of the defining characteristics of Latin America is official corruption – on every and any level, even in Communist Cuba. In 1989 for eample, Cuban Major General and Hero of the Republic Arnaldo Ochoa, Cuban Ministry of Interior Colonel Antonio de la Guardia, and Ministry of Interior Brigadier General Patricio de la Guardia were convicted of corruption, drug trafficking and treason. Ochoa had also been involved in the smuggling of diamonds and ivory from Angola; he had previously commanded the Cuban forces allied to the communist MPLA there. The three were executed by firing squad. The remarkable aspect to this case was that Ochoa had been the most powerful man in Cuba after only the Castro brothers, and was very close to General Raul Castro, his superior.

    Currupt people at a state motor vehicles office? That’s nothing for the greaseritos.

    • mobilebay

      Crime seems to be an inbred trait with Latins.

      • It make you feel really good we have one of these greaseritas on the United States Supreme Court and another running the Department of Homeland Security, doesn’t it?

        DHS has racked up over $2 billion worth of waste and fraud, including beer brewing kits, boats purchased at double the retail price – which could not be found later on – and iPods used for “data storage”. When one of them gets put in charge of something, this is what happens.

        Latino countries are Roman Catholics. If the RCC is so holy why is it their countries are mired in corruption and poverty.

        • Blue-eyed Devil

          Because of poverty. Don’t knock the religion please.

    • Jesse James

      Yes but wouldn’t it be nice if just once in a while corrupt officials here were executed, promptly.

      • I’m in favor of simply seizing their assets, locking them up and letting them rot. Randy “Duke” Cunningham was so corrupt he actually had a price list. I can’t imagine what he was thinking. “Gee, I’m a famous navy jet fighter ace and now a respected congressman. Life has been great! I know what I’ll do; I’ll betray the trust of the nation that loves me in exchange for some trinkets and baubles.”

        The 88 months he served wasn’t any joke.

        The advantage of not executing folks is that if the court makes a mistake – or if the cops lie under oath – one can release the poor guy and give him some money. There was an infamous wrongful murder conviction here in Colorado that was a complete frame-up, and overturned a few years ago.

        • Jesse James

          I hear you Michael about the wrongly convicted but if you were playing the odds wouldn’t you think that there are more murders and rapes committed by released felons than there are innocent men put to death? A country that refuses or is unable to render prompt and consistent justice can hardly claim to have rule of law. Rule of lawyers maybe but no rule of law. I think the leftist radicals have so confused the issue of right and wrong that our society is paralyzed, there is no or little consensus of our morality.

          • When I returned from prison, I was so delighted to be back in my own home recidivism never occurred to me. I tossed out my lying, thieving house-sitter (I had no idea he was a child-molester until later), and straightened up the place. The feds had wandered around the complex, warning everyone I was home – I am not a sex-offender, but apparently I have a reputation that would make the Waffen SS puke – but the first thing any of the neighbors said to me was “Welcome back.”

            For whites who never used drugs, I doubt recidivism is a major issue. That mileage doubtless varies with blacks and Mexicans, but this is already the site for discussion of precisely those differences.

    Who really knows, but he loves illegal invading squat monsters.

  • Katherine McChesney

    Mexicans and other from Central and South America are LATINOS. ‘Hispanics’ are Whites from Spain.

  • Blue-eyed Devil

    I’m 110% sure that Bossman is Mexican. Why would he come in here? I suspect it’s both curiosity and to get a rise out of us. He should join the Brown Berets.

  • Blue-eyed Devil

    Englelman is most likely Asian.
