A week ago, federal investigators arrested over 20 illegal immigrants associated with a counterfeiting syndicate that forged immigration documents so immigrants could obtain legal Florida driver licenses. The mastermind behind the counterfeiting scheme is 47-year-old Valois Nunez Artelis. He faces several federal charges and will go to trial in federal court, later this month.
According to federal prosecutors, Nunez impersonated an immigration officer, falsifying a legal document obtained from the immigration enforcement agency. This particular legal document allows the immigrant to avoid deportation. The certificate was duplicated several times, forged, and sold to more than 20 immigrants who each paid $2,000 for the document. The forged document enabled immigrants, who were in the country illegally, to apply for and get Florida driver licenses. Two of the immigrants detained, have faced conviction and could undergo deportation procedures as a part of their penalty.
Immigration procedures to become a naturalized citizen are long and tedious, testing the toughest resolves. Sometimes it appears, it will never be possible to acquire full American citizenship because it’s as though the migrant encounters one obstacle after another, preventing them from realizing their American dream. Frequently, the idea of doing something illegal to enter and stay in the country comes to mind, but that’s not the way to go about becoming a naturalized citizen.
