BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com )– Federal agents and state police have arrested a Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles employee they say scammed illegal immigrants out of money by promising to sell them driver's licenses.

Adriana Ferreira was arrested Friday morning, and is scheduled for an arraignment in Suffolk Superior Court later in the day.

Authorities allege that after the Boston resident took the money, she would fail to deliver any documents and would report them to immigration officials.

The naturalized U.S. citizen from Brazil faces a 27-count indictment on charges including corruption, bribery and larceny.

Authorities claim Ferreira charged victims $2,000 for a license, and falsely told them she had a contact in the federal government who could delay a deportation for a fee.

They say Ferreira did not know any immigration officials.



Statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

An employee of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) was arrested this morning in Watertown, Mass. The employee was arrested by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), special agents with ICE's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) and Massachusetts State Police detectives.

Adriana Ferreira, a naturalized U.S. citizen, was arrested for numerous violations of Massachusetts law, including corruption, bribery and larceny. She will make an initial appearance in Suffolk Superior Court later today.

In March 2011, special agents with HSI and OPR initiated an investigation into Ferreira. The investigation revealed that Ferreira was using her position at the RMV to defraud illegal aliens. The illegal aliens believed they would receive a driver's license for a fee of $2,000. In this case, it was determined that illegal aliens never received any licenses from the RMV or Ferreira. Ferreira also claimed to have a contact at ICE who had the ability to delay an illegal alien's deportations for a fee.

After an extensive investigation, Ferreira had no interaction or contact with any ICE employees.

The Somerville (Mass.) Police Department also assisted in this investigation. This case is being prosecuted by the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office.

Hows it going Angry American, I see you've changed your name. We have had this conversation before. You complain because they 'live like animals' with a bunch of them in a small place, and then you whine because they have nicer cars than yours and are not homeless.

Can't you put two and two together? LOL

Ever consider that they work hard, several jobs in most cases, and live cheaply, not spending money on many things Americans do.

I dont know who your referring to but great minds think alike. Unlike liberal dopes like you that would rather support illegal invaders. People like you make me want to puke.

So what you are saying is that you are too stupid to understand that they have nicer cars than you because they work hard and live cheaply......it is called "choices"......oh well, it is always the completely stupid ones like you that are racist....you'all just don't get it.

I noticed in the Chico Police Blotter someone "chose" to steal someones Honda; is that one of the "choices" you mention?

Oops..did I say that out loud? I meant to say:
From the "choice" to sneak into this country to the "choice" to contact a forger and obtain fraudulant identification, to disappearing with the furniture they bought on credit, to a raft of many such illegal "choices" the illegal immigrant has many ways to obtain goods (AND teach these "choices" to their children). So much better to come here rather than back home where they activly discourage such things and they have so few "choices".

Wouldn't you agree?

A crime is a crime. And yes some illegals commit crimes (other than the infraction or misdemeanor of entering the country without papers). The crime rate among illegals though is low compared to other groups because they try so hard to stay under the radar.

Conflating other crimes with the immigration issue does not help your point though. They are separate issues.

Car theft should be treated as car theft, regardless of who the "stealer" is. If the perp happens to be illegal they will be deported in addition to anything else. But they are separate issues.

It is a myth that illegal immigrants disproportionally cause crime. THEY DO NOT.

"The Public Policy Institute of California examined the incarceration data as a measure of whether immigrants commit more crime than other people. In a 2008 report (click here for the PDF), it found that immigrants are much less likely to be incarcerated than others. It’s difficult to break out the undocumented population, the report said, but it’s possible to compare foreign-born and native-born prisoners with similar education levels and ages.

Because immigrants tend to be young, male and less educated, there would be reason to expect a higher level of criminal activity, not a lower one, the report says. But the foreign-born accounted for 35 percent of California’s adult population and 17 percent of the adult prison population.

The institute looked further: Could the lower incarceration rates be explained by deportation? What about the jail population, which isn’t counted in the prison data? What if you look at only recently-arrived immigrants, or the ones who have accumulated more years here? What if you look at crime rates in individual cities where immigrants are going? What about the children of immigrants? What if you look only at the ones with less than a high school diploma?

The conclusion was that “the foreign-born have low rates of incarceration and institutionalizations, and that these rates hold true across education and region-of-origin subgroups.” The report ends,“In particular, from a public safety standpoint, there would be little reason to further limit immigration, to favor entry by high-skilled immigrants, or to increase penalties against criminal immigrants.”

So...in 50 words or less, can you tell us if this is true of a "National average" instead of a local area such as LA? Remember what Mark Twain said: "Figures lie, and liars figure."

Because, if STREET GANGS are any indication, I'd say they're holding their own when it comes to crime and killing. Not a very good record from these "peaceful people."

How much crime commited by these "guests" is ACCEPTABLE to you? NONE of it is acceptable to me, so please put a damper on trying to convince us of someones peaceful nature to change the subject away from the crimes these people bring to us and continue to commit.

No one is complaining about the laborer who goes to work in the fields each day. But people DO complain about crime, criminals, overloaded hospitals and lost jobs. I guess your ox hasn't been gored yet, so I'm sure it makes these things easy to ignore, at the expense of your fellow, taxpaying Americans.

Comment?

First of all most gang members are not illegals they are U.S. citizens born here, usually 2nd generation. The ones fresh from Mexico either legally or otherwise are usually referred to as Paisas in the hispanic community and are rarely in gangs.

It is the children of immigrants, born here, who tend in some percentage to be attracted to gang life.

This was true with Irish immigrants, Italian immigrants, Russian immigrants etc. at other times. The first generation tends to work hard and group together (little italy, Russian communities in Roseville and the outer Richmond, china town, etc.) their kids tend to be bilingual and a percentage of them tend to become involved in gangs, and the succeeding generations tend to lose the home language and become more and more American.

As far as the study goes, no it is not just one community, it looks at a variety of data and is very clear about what the data says and where it is insufficient. I won't re-cap that all for you because I am sure you can read it yourself if you are interested.

I don't understand though, why are you are so quick to want to believe that illegal immigrants are prone to crime, the evidence does not back that up, and you seem so intelligent on other subjects.

If they are not illegal then the parents most likely are. The apple doesnt fall far from the tree

"most gang members are not illegals" The leading prison gangs in S.CA are from mexico. These mex. gangs run the prisons in S.CA. and many of their "shot callers" reside in mexico. If you don't know why (???): It's all about the drugs coming north. You MUST have seen or read something about this.

"This was true with Irish immigrants" So give me the name of any Irish gangs that filled the street with murder as the mexican gangs do. Can't (?) because there were no cartels and drug problem as we see today.

"succeeding generations tend to lose the home language" There are now 4th and 5th generation gang bangers...and they're proud of it.

You seem determined to ignore the facts in your zeal. It isn't that I say Mexican people are mentally deficient but I do say that their cultural imperatives are very different than those in the United States and because they (as many different nationalities have) tend to often cluster within their own communities, and use their home language, their culture can only change slowly...and in the meantime we suffer. How hard is that to understand?

There were Irish gangs, ever hear of five points in NY?

Italian gangs, the gang to beat all gangs, ever hear of the MAFIA?

Chinese gangs, Hmong Gangs, Russian Gangs in Roseveille and SF.

And by the way, yes there are Mexican Prison gangs. but these are not "Illegal Mexican" prison gangs. Most of the members are U.S. citizens by birth. Of course their are exceptions, but those gangs were formed in California Prisons by Mexican Americans, not illegals, Ever see American Me, about one of the founders of La "M", etc. Illegals are a very small part of the problem.

It seems to me that your problem is you seem to be conflating Mexican Americans with illegal immigrants. It is apples and oranges.

Once again nothing but lies........

The vast majority of criminal invaders caught sneaking into the USA are in fact gang bangers.......

Now take in to the fact that the millions of criminal invaders held for deportation dont count as incarcerated criminals.....

If you add to the prison stats the ones not in prison but detention facilities the number of criminal invaders causing crime is the highest of any........

But moronic liberals like you refuse to look at facts......

NOPE

Nice try village liar.........But you are busted again..........

Why are you so scared to answer even a simple question?????

Please tell us MICKEY where Vern supported the ban or disagreed with your statement that the ban was a bad idea..........
Waiting..........LOL

But there are more risks with these activities you mentioned. How much harm should come from tubing down a river with friends? Add several thousand and alcohol then you have a major problem. The big picture is a young life was wasted. He could have amounted to something or someone. Judging from the out-pouring of searched I'd say he was well liked. My heart goes out to his family.
