This is just the tip of the iceberg there are many more out there doing this. Could be as many as 1-10 households.
Loved ones would be will to take care of their own and not paid by the taxpayer. Time to clean up New Mexico Governor and state and federal legislators.

There is the same type of activity ongoing in numerous parts Dona Ana County.
But with the increased scrutiny and budget-trimming from the new Martinez administration, I'm sure all of these people illegally obtaining benefits will realize the error of their ways and begin promising new careers at both Pic Quik and Wal-Mart, just to make ends meet.
