ALE: Fake IDs Being Sold To Illegal Immigrants

Two Beaufort County men are accused of making fake ID cards, resident alien cards, selling phony drivers licenses and trafficking in stolen identities.

Officers with the Alcohol Law Enforcement Division say the fake cards were being sold to illegal immigrants.

Oscar Gonzalez and Alberto Salazar were arrested last Friday by sheriff deputies. They say their investigation began when investigators bought fake identifications from the two men.

Deputies say they found out that the fake IDs were being made at Gonzalez's home on Carrow Drive in Washington. There they found and seized computers, printers and laminating machines.

The 40-year-old Gonzlez and the 21-year-old Salazar are both in jail on $21,000 secured bonds.

    It amazes me how much ignorance there is in this country first off, not all illegals are Mexicans, look at a globe for once people! Secondly, people dont use these cards to enter the country thats nearly impossible! its just a way to say i can get a job that the lazy bums in this country refuse! Although it's wrong, think... honestly what would this country be without immigrants? Just one tasteless boring country. Im an american citizen, and its only fair to accept others when we want to be accepted in other places, and no illegals arent stripping us of anything, we've brought that upon ourselves, or more like Bush.

    Really? If some guy who cant speak english and has no skills is taking your job.... I think the point is this type of behavior in the story is a threat to national security. Whether the people they are helping are terrorists or not this needs to be addressed on a federal level as such. They need to be put in jail. Deporting them means they will be back in under a month.

    I have a question..If they are Illegal how are they able to get assistance from The Department of Social Services- Food stamps/Medicade and all others? They tell us they are not legal to work but they get help from our US Government this makes no sense to me??

    To 100% Mexican: Are you legal? if so then your are an American Citizen. If not you are Illegal and draining our country of funds meant for AMERICANS. And this country would be alot more without ILLEGALS.
