illegal aliens and their co-conspirators ,,,other illegal aliens,,,,are finding florida,s lack of real enforcement on illegal presence,and illegal employers ,fervent ground for commiting crime....this is another daily example of middle eastern and south american (brazilian) criminals in south florida.....anyone that thinks this is not widespread ,,is sadly mistaken,,,,this is the biggest threat we have to our public safety,and national securitie.....it is time to enforce our laws on illegal aliens.......

15 mill scame 2 to 3 years plus 138k.Don't worry Obana will fix the whole world.He will talk to all the criminals and they will stop commiting crimes.The next thing they will get is a free house to place there stolen goods in. That will teach them. So let's get out there and vote at least 10 times each for Obana.

What an absolute joke. These dirtbags will be out scamming, defrauding and cheating people again in no time. Apparantly, crime pays very well. The Attorney General's Office has the nerve to announce this like they accomplished some great feat of justice?

Supposedly the Bush team and the outstanding "Department of Shampoo Security" department had a handle on all kinds of money transfers.

Look at the names in this story, and rest assured that US dollars are not being sent to terrorists.

Well, at least we're safe from fingernail clippers on our airlines!
