According to a ruling by Obama-appointed federal Judge Beth Bloom, it is not a crime for an illegal alien to use fake federal documents to obtain a state license.
Rubman Ardon Chinchilla is a roofer who lives in Broward County, Florida and has been illegally living in the US for decades.
Chinchilla got busted using fake immigration documents in order to obtain a Florida driver’s license and was indicted on two counts of violating federal law.
Chinchilla was one of 20 illegal aliens who was arrested for using an “Order of Supervision,” — this is a specific federal form to prove to the Florida Department of Highway and Safety that an individual is allowed to be in the US.
Mr. Chinchilla and the illegal aliens lawyered up and fought the charges, arguing that the Florida Department of Highway and Safety doesn’t allow for an “Order of Supervision” to be used as proof of legal status in the US.
Miami federal judge Beth Bloom threw out the charges on a highly technical legal argument and opened the doors for the other illegal aliens caught in the bust to not only beat their cases, but maybe also get to stay in the United States.
The Miami Herald reported:
But a Miami federal judge has now thrown out criminal charges against Chinchilla, saying there’s no actual law that says the form can even be used to prove an “authorized stay in the United States.” It’s a highly technical legal argument, but it’s opening the door for the others arrested in the sting to beat their cases, and maybe even stay in the United States.
The decision was made earlier this month by U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami, in court filings this week, said it will appeal the decision.
At least one other defendant is now trying to use Bloom’s decision to get his own case dismissed. Wilmer Jeovanny Gutierrez Nunez, who ran a plastery company and was a youth soccer coach, is asking another federal judge to dismiss his indictment on the same grounds.
His lawyer, Bob Pardo, filed the request last week to U.S. Judge Robert Scola.
“We were pleased to see Judge Bloom’s decision, however it would be inappropriate to comment on pending litigation,” Pardo said on Tuesday.
The criminal probe into the fake orders was conducted by agents from Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, and the Identity, Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force. The task force, run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is a nationwide effort to crack down on document fraud that “may enable terrorists, other criminals and illegal aliens to gain entry to and remain in the United States,” according to the agency.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch pointed out that this is the second controversial ruling for Beth Bloom.
In December the judge [Beth Bloom] determined that Broward County public schools and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office had no legal duty to protect students during the February 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Seventeen people were killed and 17 others were injured at the Parkland, Florida school when a former student opened fire on the campus.
A lawsuit filed by 15 students named the district and sheriff’s office among six defendants, along with school deputy Scot Peterson and a campus monitor. In the complaint, the students claimed their civil and due process rights were violated by the defendants’ failure to protect them from school shooters. Bloom ruled the school district and county law enforcement agency had no constitutional duty to protect students who were not in custody. “The claim arises from the actions of [shooter Nikolas] Cruz, a third party, and not a state actor,” she wrote in the decision. “Thus, the critical question the Court analyzes is whether defendants had a constitutional duty to protect plaintiffs from the actions of Cruz.”
Obama’s corruption lives on through the radical, lawless judges he appointed during his 8 year crime spree in the White House.
