|Humorous Sign Posted On Border To Make Illegals Laugh!|
From Carolina Journal On Line
"All five admitted they were in the country illegally. Some had been deported more than once. The deputies concluded also that the individuals had not engaged in identity theft but had instead created identities by making up names and tax identification numbers.
Sheriff Jimmy Thornton told CJ he was happy his officers were able to stop some checks from being cashed, but said he has no idea what the magnitude of the problem is in Sampson County, let
alone North Carolina.
The sheriff’s office said it had no authority to arrest the five, who were not accused of breaking any local laws. They were released and the confiscated checks and other documents were turned over to IRS investigators. Officials said they consider this an open investigation, ongoing in cooperation with the IRS. Any charges or prosecution likely would be the responsibility of the federal government."
