Skip to comments.Former Kansas welfare worker: Illegal immigrants abused the system (Overwhelming fraud)
Posted on 03/14/2011 6:22:29 PM PDT by dragnet2
testimony today including a statement from a former welfare worker who described overwhelming levels of fraud by illegal immigrants.
Lana Reed, who worked as a bilingual specialist for the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services in Overland Park from 2008 to 2010, urged lawmakers to adopt the bill targeting illegal immigration.
She described a system overrun by illegal immigrants who used false Social Security numbers and other fraudulent documents to game the system.
I witnessed overwhelming levels of fraud and corruption resulting in the waste of millions of taxpayer dollars, Reed told the House Judiciary Committee. Most of the fraud was conducted pursuant to policies of the SRS, which required employees to turn a blind eye to fraud and abuse
The bill, written by Rep. Lance Kinzer, an Olathe Republican, along with Secretary of State Kris Kobach, proposes several ways to stem the waves of illegal immigrants who they say have flooded into Kansas in recent years.
At a time of high unemployment, it is difficult to fathom why a state would not want to ensure that taxpayers dollars are only used to support the employment of legal workers, Kobach said.
Tom Stoffers of Tonganoxie said the state was being bled dry by illegal immigrants who use social services.
Citizens want jobs, he said. And they clearly should have preference for a job over someone who is in this country and our state illegally.

From Sacramento to Kansas to North Carolina....Millions of illegal aliens, most from Mexico, are choking off America...
While legal Americans must obey all laws, as the same government that panders to illegal Mexicans, will fine, jail and seize your assets if you step out of line.
Finally. People are coming to their senses and realize what a burden
illegals really are.
This will be on all the lame-stream media ASAP.
In Chicago a woman PASTOR who’s husband works for DCFS says they are told if an illegal alien comes for help, don’t ask questions just give them what they want.
BUT Americans get asked every question in the book and are often turned away for help they need.
Wow! Illegal immigrants stealing social security numbers and committing more crime? That NEVER happens. /sarc
This is why we need to secure borders folks.
This is as obvious as bears relieving themselves in the woods.
“Millions of illegal aliens, most from Mexico, are choking off America...”
That’s a fact.
NO!!! What a racist thing to say! YOU LIE, YOU LIE!!
Most of the fraud was conducted pursuant to policies of the SRS, which required employees to turn a blind eye to fraud and abuse
People need to go to jail over this, starting with Sebelius.
They’re just doing the scamming Americans are too lazy to do.
How many of those who are leeching off the welfare state are wiring money they have received elsewhere “home” to Mexico? Billions are transferred by wire every year from the US.
If they are going to give away the money they have earned (and not reported), they have no business playing “victim” and asking for assistance (they never contributed to the in the first place).
From Sacramento to Kansas to North Carolina to the White House ......
Can’t be, everyone insists that Fox is a conservative network.
This knowledgable person’s dramatic and pointed testimony has national implications, of course.
But here is how it went down with some of those she addressed in Kansas:
It apparently did not sway 4 freshman Republicans. They voted with the Democrats to table HB 2372, the Kansas immigration bill. They are representatives Steve Alford, Dan Collins, Leslie Osterman and Benny Boman.
Folks like this and the various state legislators who defeat current efforts to enact presidential NBC eligibility bills, appear to have ignored their oaths. They are regarded by many as playing Russian roulette for personal gain. If so, the gun is pointed at our nation.
