RIP Philo

Yet another corrupt government official

> Raphael A. Sanchez, who was chief counsel at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Seattle when he opened credit cards and took out loans using the personal information of vulnerable immigrants, has been sentenced to four years in prison.

He took a plea deal with the Justice Department, which was approved by a judge on Thursday. He has also been ordered to pay more than $190,000 in restitution.

Sanchez — whose responsibilities included overseeing immigration removal cases in several states — stole and exploited the identities of people who prosecutors say were “particularly vulnerable given their status as deported or otherwise excludable.”

He also misreported his earnings in his IRS filings. And, the Justice Department said, Sanchez “claimed three aliens as relative dependents on his tax returns for 2014 through 2016.”

The funny part is that the immigrants still have to pay back the loans.

Article fails to discuss that Judge Sanchez is a Mexican who oversaw immigration proceedings in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington dealing with almost 100% NON-hispanic immigrants who had crossed the CANADIAN border.

Wrong. Sanchez is a black dude born in Puerto Rico.
