There's great news in regards to the “draining of the swamp” in Washington, DC, as former Obama ICE Chief Counsel Raphael A. Sanchez has been sentenced 48 months imprisonment for a wire fraud and identity theft scheme which targeted illegal aliens.

The United States Court for the Western District of Washington brought the charges against Sanchez for his Seattle-based crimes that occurred under Barack Obama, in which the former Chief Counsel abused his access to the files of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency database to operate a scheme of theft and identity fraud.

“Raphael Sanchez was entrusted with overseeing the honest enforcement of our country’s immigration laws,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan. “Instead, Sanchez abused that trust, and capitalized on his position at ICE to exploit his victims and line his own pockets.”

“ICE employees are required to ensure honest enforcement of more than 400 laws,” said ICE Principal Legal Advisor Short. “We cannot let one bad actor detract from the work the agency’s dedicated employees in Seattle and across the world are doing to ensure our national security and uphold public safety. Our employees are held to the highest standards of professional conduct. Individuals who violate the public’s trust will face consequences for their actions, as Mr. Sanchez did in this case. Corruption will not be tolerated.”

During his tenure, Sanchez was responsible for the removal proceedings of illegal aliens in Alaska, Oregon. and Washington; in which he would later confess as per his plea agreement that he was responsible for meticulously plotting a scheme to defraud illegal aliens who were in the process of deportation proceedings.

Having access to the complete identifiable information of the illegal aliens he was tasked with deporting, Sanchez would then open lines of credit and take out personal bank loans in their names, which in effect would manipulate their credit bureau files.

After scheming the cash, Sanchez proceeded to transfer those funds to himself and even went as far as purchasing goods for himself both online and in retail stores using credit cards issued in the names of the illegal aliens.

While no doubt the illegal aliens do not belong in the United States of America, there is no excuse for this kind of corruption occurring that tarnished the names of the patriotic employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

By abusing ICE’s official computer database systems for the access of hard-copy immigration A-files, Sanchez would then forge fraudulent identification documents including Social Security cards and Washington State driver’s licenses with those fraudulent documents.

Using these, he would easily obtain the loans and credit cards, where he accumulated more than $190,000 in debts that he never intended to repay to the banks crediting him.

Sanchez simply planned to cast blame on the deported criminals, meaning that the actions of his own role at the ICE agency could have been motivated by the specific persons he was stealing the identities from, in a widespread targeting scheme that will forever disgrace his career.

Federal prosecutors say that Sanchez made a mistake when he listed his own residence as the home addresses of the illegal aliens on account paperwork, where he would even place public utilities in their names so that he could be approved for various lines of credit and to help conceal the corrupt.scheme.

In at least one incident, Sanchez is said to have manufactured a false earnings-and-leave statement in the name of a female illegal alien, and then used that information to register a new vehicle.in her name.

The court says that Sanchez acquired over $190,000 in the names of aliens to either pay himself or entities that he controlled, often using PayPal and mobile point-of-sale devices from Amazon, Square, Venmo, and Coin to process the fraudulent transactions.

In several cases, Sanchez would even purchase goods over the internet in the names of illegal aliens and then was foolish enough to have them shipped to his personal residence.

During the scheme, Sanchez went as far as to hire credit-monitoring services and corresponded with credit bureaus in the names of the illegal aliens to conceal his fraud scheme, as if he were planning to continue the crimes for years to come.

To make matters worse, Sanchez claimed three illegal aliens as relative dependents on his personal income tax returns for the years 2014, 2015, and 2016.

ICE’s Office of Professional Responsibility, the FBI, and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigated the case, with trial attorneys Luke Cass and Jessica C. Harvey of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section prosecuting the swamp monster within the agency.

44-year-old Former ICE Chief Counsel Raphael A. Sanchez stole a total of seven identities, but as per his plea agreement, he's now guilty of one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.

While the liberal media would love to cast blame at ICE for the actions of Sanchez, remember that those within the ICE agency are patriots risking their lives to serve this nation.

Members of the public who have information about foreign fugitives are urged to contact ICE by calling the ICE tip line at 1-866-347-2423 or internationally at 001-1802-872-6199.

He will serve the 4 years in a federal prison, as well as U.S. District Court Judge Robert S. Lasnik of the Western District of Washington ordering Sanchez to pay back the $190,345.63 in restitution he stole from various banks and creditors during his crime spree.

He essentially walked away without serious punishment considering the magnitude of the crimes he was charged with.

Scratch one more name off the list of those in the swamp needing to be drained.

Every one in the Oboma-nation was and is on the take!

How entrenched is this problem really? That is not the first time I hear about crooks like him?

This is a fairly light sentence for such criminal and at a minimum he should also be charged with tax fraud.

I also know that the overwhelming majority of ICE agents are taking their duties and perform them honorably.

This criminal is an anomaly rather than the norm.

Will his family be harassed while they are dining out in a restaurant as was Sarah Sanders and others? I suppose I answered my own question: As a Obama hack of course not - its the double standard the left exercises!
