Tennessee Couple Pleads Guilty to Selling Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens
Liberals are flooding the country with illegal aliens and helping them get around the laws of the land. Conservative states are particularly their target in this political mission. In Tennessee, for instance, a former Department of Safety and Homeland Security official and her husband pleaded guilty to selling driver’s licenses to non-citizens and people without any legal residency in the country or the state.
In a press release dated December 21, 2023, the Department of Justice (DOJ) stated that 49-year-old Cheryl Huff – former District Manager for the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security (TDSHS) – of Knoxville along with her husband Mario Paz-Mejia pleaded guilty to producing hundreds of false Tennessee driver’s licenses and identification cards for individuals that were not legally eligible to get them. The documents illegally provided by Huff and Paz-Mejia to those seeking it in Tennessee include: fraudulent lease agreements as proof of Tennessee residency, false birth certificates, Social Security cards, and driver’s licenses from other states and U.S. territories to establish proof of citizenship or legal residency in the United States. The PR stated:
Using his association with Huff, Paz-Mejia represented to his customers that, in return for $2,500, Paz-Mejia could obtain for them a Tennessee driver’s license or identification card.
Huff and Paz-Mejia face up to 15 years in a federal prison and $250,000 in fines. Their sentencing is scheduled for May 24, 2024. The DOJ press release makes no mention of any arrests or investigation of the couple’s customers who obtained the driving licenses and other documents illegally.
The DOJ also avoided using the terms “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” in their press release. Accordingly leftist media reported the story with politically correct phrasing by excluding any such terms. NBC affiliate WBIR-TV wrote that the driver’s licenses and identification cards would have gone to “people not qualified to have them” and added:
Authorities said Paz-Meija recruited people who were not citizens of the U.S. and were not residents of Tennessee.
In December 2022, Tennessee’s Governor Bill Lee, a Republican, issued a statement that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told him that they would be releasing single adult illegal immigrants into the state as they await their court proceedings. In a statement to Fox News, Governor Lee called the plan “irresponsible and a threat to the safety of Tennesseans.”
Conservatives have long observed the political weaponization of immigration against the local population, particularly against white conservatives. In one of his recent videos, Tucker Carlson commented on the ongoing immigration crisis in the country, saying that the Biden administration is importing millions of third-world citizens to illegally enter America and are told that white men are the problem here.
Breitbart reported on Tuesday (December 26) that some 2,000 Americans are killed by illegal aliens every year. Many of these criminal illegals are deported multiple times after they are arrested for various crimes, but they easily sneak back into the country.
