Mexican national gets prison time for faking citizenship, stealing $350G in benefits
Andres Avelino Anduaga, a Mexican national who impersonated an American citizen for more than 30 years, was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison for stealing more than $350,000 in government benefits from government agencies.
The report, citing court documents, said in 1980, he used a birth certificate belonging to a U.S. citizen to obtain a California driver’s license and a Social Security card, then used his new false identity to commit a variety of crimes.
He reportedly admitted that he was able to travel freely between the U.S. and Mexico using a passport that he obtained via the same stolen identity he used to defraud public assistance programs.
This is just the kinda thing that the guy who the Democratic Party in California endorsed over Pelosi wanted to make sure continued, eh?
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Los Angeles lawmaker leading the fight to make California a so-called “sanctuary state” has suggested half of his family would be deported for using falsified Social Security cards and other fake identification.
California Senate Leader Kevin de Leon made the claims during testimony before the Senate’s Public Safety Committee for SB54, a bill introduced by De Leon that would create a statewide sanctuary for immigrants living in the country illegally.
"Half of my family would be eligible for deportation under the executive order, because they got a false social security card, they got a false identification, they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB 60, they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification.”
It creeps me out when...
Most Mexicans believe that we somehow or other stole California from Mexico. That turns out to be total bullshit. Mexico never HAD California. They were never able to get past the Apaches and Comanches in order to get TO California via land so that by the middle 1800s, all they had to show for their 300 year head start in California was a handful of missions which had to be supplied by ships coming around South America.If they had ever done anything with California, there is no way in the world that Anglos would have been able to simply walk into the place in the 1840s.
Most modern people have no idea how big a deal the Comanches were in the 18th and 19th centuries. Comanches were the absolute bottom of the Native American totem pole in the ages before horses were reintroduced to the Americas. But of all the Native American groups which managed to domesticate wild Mustangs and adapt themselves to cavalry operations, the Comanches did by far the best job. By the turn of the 18th century they were being described as the best light cavalry in the world.
Even today, polls show that Mexicans hate "gringos." 75-80% of them say that any Mexican living in the US owes his loyalty to Mexico. Most of the rest "aren't sure." That's the pool the illegal immigrants are coming from.
The Commanches were constantly raiding and burning villages far into what is now Mexico. Many feared they would take over Mexico City.

S C Gwynne, author of Empire Of The Summer Moon about the rise and fall of the Comanche, says simply: ‘No tribe in the history of the Spanish, French, Mexican, Texan, and American occupations of this land had ever caused so much havoc and death. None was even a close second.’
He refers to the ‘demonic immorality’ of Comanche attacks on white settlers, the way in which torture, killings and gang-rapes were routine. ‘The logic of Comanche raids was straightforward,’ he explains.
One by one, the children and young women were pegged out naked beside the camp fire,’ according to a contemporary account. ‘They were skinned, sliced, and horribly mutilated, and finally burned alive by vengeful women determined to wring the last shriek and convulsion from their agonised bodies. Matilda Lockhart’s six-year-old sister was among these unfortunates who died screaming under the high plains moon.’
Not only were the Comanche specialists in torture, they were also the most ferocious and successful warriors — indeed, they become known as ‘Lords of the Plains’.
They were as imperialist and genocidal as the white settlers who eventually vanquished them. They terrorised Mexico and brought the expansion of Spanish colonisation of America to a halt. Settlers in Texas were utterly terrified of the Comanche, who would travel almost a thousand miles to slaughter a single white family.
