Criminals commiting fraud? Nooooooo.....

PHOENIX -- As the federal government launches a new program that will allow many young undocumented immigrants to stay temporarily in the U.S., officials warn that applications will be closely scrutinized for fraud and that anyone caught lying could face criminal charges and swift deportation.
Wednesday is the first day that as many 1.76 million undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as minors can begin submitting requests for a two-year reprieve from deportation. The policy, introduced by President Barack Obama and known as "deferred action," also will allow them to receive temporary work permits.
Immigration analysts say fraud is a major concern because some undocumented immigrants may be tempted to submit fraudulent documents out of desperation if they don't meet the age and other requirements for the program.
Analysts also point out that a 1986 amnesty law that allowed nearly 3 million illegal immigrants to get green cards was rife with fraud.


I find it hard to believe that the feds think there might be a chance of fraud being committed by a group of people that broke the law to get here in the first place and then have lived lives of fraud and deception the entire time they've lived here. I mean, what are the odds of that happening?
But seriously guys, dump the deportation threat. We know, you know, and they know it ain't gonna happen.
