Mexican Immigrant BUSTED in MASSIVE Fraud Scheme, and It Gets Worse…

By

The US Attorney’s Office has convicted a Mexican immigrant in a massive food stamp fraud scheme that many warn is just the tip of the iceberg.

Raul Carlos Monarca-Gonzalez was in the US legally, but what he did once he got here was totally ILLEGAL.

Breitbart reports:

Raul Carlos Monarca-Gonzalez, a Mexican citizen, 40, was sentenced to 30 months in prison and three years supervised release on Friday in federal court in Hartford, Connecticut, in connection with a massive food stamps fraud scheme, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office.
Monarca-Gonzalez worked at WB Trade Fair Grocery on Willow Street in Waterbury where he, along with others who worked there, illegally allowed customers to redeem food stamps for cash from November 2014 to June 2016.

Investigators from the U.S. attorney’s office say WB Trade Fair Grocery redeemed a total of approximately $3.2 million over an 18-month period, far more than the estimated $120,000 to $240,000 the store could legally redeem.

He was also ordered to pay $1.5 million in restitution, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Monarca-Gonzalez pleaded guilty in November to one count of unlawful use of food stamp benefits and one count of conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud.

He also faces immigration proceedings at the end of his prison term.

As many who commented on the story pointed out, that $3.2 MILLION fraud is but the tip of the iceberg.

There are MANY more people doing what Monarca-Gonzalez did, defrauding the US taxpayers of MILLIONS and perhaps BILLIONS of dollars.

This is the “entitlement” that Barack Obama taught refugees and immigrants they could demand upon arriving in America.

This is NOT the American Dream.
