Cops: Sham school a security threat

Instead, it was a sham, prosecutors said.
Instructors gave students correct answers during tests and encouraged students -- most of whom were undocumented immigrants -- to use false Social Security numbers in state licensing examinations, authorities said.
The result was hundreds of licensees were trained poorly to remove the hazardous material, and many of them went to work on security-sensitive local government projects, prosecutors said.
More than 80 percent of the Queens school's students used false identification to get certificates, then went to work on Port Authority projects, which "undermined the efforts of homeland security and gave individuals access to the city's bridges, tunnels and airports," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.
