“Federal agents targeting illegal immigrants raided meatpacking plants in six states yesterday, arresting hundreds of workers on the uncommon charge of identity theft and shutting down the world’s second-largest meat processing company for much of the day.
About 1,000 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents with search warrants entered plants owned by Swift & Co., of Greeley, Colo., charging that “large numbers” of workers illegally assumed the identities of U.S. citizens or legal residents by using their Social Security numbers to get work, ICE officials said.”

Andres Guerrero, who teaches Spanish at Aims Community College, joined the protesters. He said, “In ten years we’re going to take over the southland, trust me. “This is our land and always will be our land.”

The staunch Patriot combined with know-how is what worries them. A lot of America works on fraud principles, as shown by this ICE raid. Staunch patriots with this much know-how might turn in people.
This is easier to do with the internet, electronic databases of academic articles that cover the last century, electronic newspaper archives, etc. The establishment want people who can use this to expose them to be on student visas.
If China gets it and uses it, that’s ok. If the American people are told it, that’s a problem. China, Pakistan, Russia, India, etc. are all compiling kompromat files.
This won’t change until DOJ leadership is clean.
