Two Illegal Immigrants Sentenced For $1.4 Million Food Stamp Fraud

Two Korean citizens in the United States illegally were sentenced last week in Baltimore to prison for obtaining over $1,400,000 in payments for food sales that never occurred as part of a food stamp and wire fraud scheme.

U.S. District Judge George L. Russell III gave Hyung Cho 38 months in prison and three years of supervised release and his mother, Dae Cho, 18 months in prison. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the District of Maryland, "Both defendants resided in Catonsville, Maryland and are Korean citizens who are illegally present in the United States."

The U.S. Attorney's Office says that the Chos "agreed not to object to any proceedings that may be brought to remove them from the United States upon completion of their sentence."

took them 2 years to catch them.
so if you steal 1.4 million you only get 18 months in jail?
but if you get caught with pot you can end up in jail for 10+ years?

Its the governments fault. Handing out welfare like trick or treat candy with very limited research.

Wow, 38 months for STEALING 1.4 MILLION TAXPAYERS DOLLARS??? Put them in a Hard Labor Camp until they pay their debt, however long it takes to Pay In Full. Maybe they will find "some creative ways" to make money for the Taxpaying Citizens.

Does this mean y'all will stop complaining that immigration enforcement doesn't exist?

Better enforcement <> better results. Take a look at the War on Drugs. Its only made things worse.
