20,000 Fake driver’s licenses seized at Chicago airport so far this year

 

Am I the only one asking if it is so easy to get a fake driver’s license how difficult must it be to scam our election system? Looking back at the history of this enterprise, another gift from China that keeps on giving. Bet as well China is up to making fake ballots. Fake I.D’s have been flowing in for at least a decade. Bet China could put a lid on this if they wanted to.

This is huge:

“These fraudulent identity documents can lead to identity theft, worksite enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, fraud linked to immigration-related crimes such as human smuggling and human trafficking,” CBP said in a news release, adding that, “these documents can be used by those individuals associated with terrorism to minimize scrutiny from travel screening measures.”

The federal customs officers have seized 1,513 shipments from overseas containing fraudulent documents—19,888 counterfeit U.S. driver’s licenses—just at Chicago O’Hare International Airport this year through the end of June.

Most of the shipments came from Hong Kong and mainland China, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Other shipments came from South Korea and the U.K.

CBP said most of the fake IDs were for college-age students. Many had the same photo but different names. But one alarming discovery was that the barcode on the fake Michigan licenses actually worked, CBP said.

Piccirilli, the acting area port director in Chicago, called the counterfeits “very realistic” and praised the officers for being able to scope out the fake documents and stop them from getting to the buyers.

In April, CBP said that customs officers at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport were seeing an increase in shipments of fake documents. Officers inspecting international shipments had found about 2,000 fake IDs in the prior year and a half.
