    Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt) admitted Wednesday that under the Senate immigration bill, forging up to two passports is not a crime, adding that the bill leaves the decision whether to charge someone with passport fraud up to the discretion of prosecutors. On Capitol Hill on Wednesday, asked Leahy, “One of the provisions has to do with passports; that’s an important component. Do you know how many passports someone is able to forge before it’s a crime?” Leahy said, “Well, it depends upon which interpretation is being used. You could have one form which is two, but then there are...

The investigators used forged birth certificates purportedly issued by Ohio and New York, and successfully submitted them in three other states. “In most of these five attempts across the three states, we were issued permanent or temporary licenses...

A scanning machine told the cashier at Town Liquors that the license was legitimate, so the customer was "OK to purchase" liquor. Only one problem, though — the license was fake. "It was an absolutely amazing ID. It was very well done," said Yogi Patel, owner of Town Liquors, located less than a mile from the UMass Dartmouth campus. For about $200, someone today can upload his or her picture and basic information into a website, and receive two fake IDs a few days later from companies...

    One day in the winter of 1996, while 12-year-old Suad Leija was getting ready for school, more than a dozen armed FBI agents raided her family's Chicago-area home. They were looking for her stepfather, Manuel Leija-Sanchez, who federal authorities believe runs a document-fraud network -- producing fake passports, Social Security cards, driver's licenses and a variety of other official papers -- with cells throughout the United States. That cold morning, the agents were too late. Manuel Leija-Sanchez had fled during the night to Mexico after he was tipped off to the impending raid, his stepdaughter recalled. The business continued to...

    COSTA MESA -- Like many teenagers, Ivan Hernandez wants to buy a car someday. On Sunday, he went to get a wallet-size laminated card that may help. It's not a driver's license or a credit card. Hernandez, 16, is a Mexican citizen, so he applied to his country's consulate for a matricula consular, a photo ID card much like a U.S. state ID. To get the card, applicants must show legal documents such as birth certificates or passports, and they give their fingerprints and signature. Organizers from the Orange County Congregation Community Organization worked with the Laguna Niguel-based Unico Foundation...

    The Department of Homeland Security allowed a man to enter its headquarters last week using a fake Matricula Consular card as identification, despite federal rules that say the Mexican-issued card is not valid ID at government buildings. Bruce DeCell, a retired New York City police officer, used his phony card -- which lists his place of birth as "Tijuana, B.C." and his address as "123 Fraud Blvd." on an incorrectly spelled "Staton Island, N.Y." -- to enter the building Wednesday for a meeting with DHS officials. Mr. DeCell said he has had the card for four years and has used...

    AUSTIN, Minn. — In Minnesota towns where hogs and turkeys meet their ends at the hands of workers from foreign lands, local officials often find themselves asking newcomers a simple question.Who are you?A worker with questionable immigration status may be carrying equally questionable identification. In Austin, where immigrants are lured by pork processing jobs, Mower County Attorney Patrick Flanagan has seen enough bad-ID cases to worry about a sizable "ghost'' population of misidentified residents."If you're a ghost, how can we help you? How can anyone help you?" he asked.Imagine a small, rural community where people are used to knowing one...

    Law enforcement officials yesterday announced the dismantling of a major fake identity-document ring - exposed in The New York Sun on Monday.

Among those arrested was the dealer who last week sold this reporter a fake green card signifying permanent resident status. The Queens district...

    Even though Los Angeles is considered the epicenter of the fake ID trade, for years the problem didn't register as a high priority for an already burdened police force. The lack of consistent enforcement allowed the underground industry to build up until it was "out of control," said LAPD Officer Fernando Flores. [snip] "When you first get here, you don't know where to go," said Flores, 25, who lives in Huntington Park. "The people who have been here a long time tell you. Everybody knows you can buy papers in MacArthur Park." [snip] Mica [slang for laminated ID cards] mills...
