I’m going to state right off the start that it gets my dander up when illegal aliens complain about unfair treatment when they have violated numerous laws themselves. They expect to be given the keys to the country for violating our laws when in reality the only thing they deserve is jail or deportation.
Such is the case with Miriam Martinez Solais of Roxboro, North Carolina. Over six years ago, she entered the country illegally. She got a job at Vesuvio’s Pizza & Grill in Roxboro, working 6-7 days a week, sometimes up to 12 hours a day for $400 a week. She finally got fed up with how little she was earning and quite her job. Then she filed a complaint with the North Carolina Department of Labor against the restaurant.
Giovanni D’Abbusco, owner of the restaurant warned her to drop the complaint because he didn’t want anything to happen to her or her daughter, but she refused. D’Abbusco hired a private detective to do some investigating of Solais. They discovered that she was using the Social Security Number of a California resident so they informed local police.
Upon the police investigation, Solais was arrested and charged two counts of identity theft and twenty-two counts of ‘obtaining property by false pretenses’ referring to her receiving paychecks using the stolen Social Security Number.
You would think at this stage that her prosecution was pretty well set, but that’s not necessarily the case. Solais’ attorney has filed three motions to dismiss all of the charges, claiming that local and state authorities have no jurisdiction in prosecuting civil immigration law violations; only federal authorities can prosecute these types of crimes. The attorney is basing his dismissal motions on a 2012 Supreme Court ruling that stated that illegal aliens cannot be prosecuted for crimes including using fake documentation to work by anyone other than federal authorities. We all know where federal authorities stand on prosecuting illegals.
However, the Supreme Court ruling has not stopped a number of state and local law enforcement agencies from doing their utmost to prosecute illegals who break the law. One of the more common charges filed against illegals by state and local agencies is identity theft, just like in the case of Solais. Recently, two illegals living in New Hampshire were charged with criminal trespass because they lived in the state without proper documentation.
Solais case now rests in the hands on a judge who is reviewing the motions to dismiss. Hopefully the judge will realize that this woman not only violated federal immigration laws but she stole an identity and then used it to work illegally in this country and deserves to have the book thrown at her. He needs to either send her to jail for as long as possible or send her packing back to Mexico. I’m sick and tired of these people coming here and abusing our system and expecting to get away with it just because they are Obama’s chosen people.
