Most of the illegals had been “previously deported,” some registered to vote
Four Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles employees and two others were arrested for allegedly creating false identification cards for illegal aliens; some of the false ids were used to register the illegals to vote in Boston.
Four state Registry of Motor Vehicle clerks along with two other people were arrested Wednesday after authorities say they were making false identifications through the registry and selling them to people living in the country illegally, some of whom had been deported in the past.
Some of those phony licenses and identifications were used to fraudulently register to vote in Boston, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Evelyn Medina, 56, of Boston; Annette Gracia, 37, of Boston; Kimberly Jordan, 33, of Randolph; David Brimage, 46, of Boston; Bivian Yohanny Brea, 41, of Boston; and a 32-year-old man identified as John Doe were all charged in federal court with aggravated identity theft.
Officials are still trying to determine John Doe’s true identity and list multiple aliases for him.
Medina, Gracia, Jordan, and Brimage were employed as clerks at the Haymarket Registry of Motor Vehicles. Authorities said Brea and Flako worked with the RMV clerks to operate the scheme.
The case against the six people began after Massachusetts State Police received an anonymous letter in October 2015 claiming a “corrupt RMV employee” was providing stolen identifications and drivers’ license to people seeking the phony documents.
“An investigation revealed that several Haymarket RMV clerks – Medina, Gracia, Jordan, and Brimage – were allegedly working with Brea, who acted as the document vendor, and Flako, who acted as the document dealer, to provide licenses and identification cards to illegal aliens for cash,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
These fake ids can also be used to apply for state and federal welfare benefits.
