If it was these women who exposed this illegal alien fraud they should be getting a medal for whistle blowing on the Department of Welfare Services. But our AG Shurtleff doesn't get it, 1300 cases of fraud and stolen identities exposed and he is going after the whistle blowers.

There has already been enough evidence publicized that this fraud list was very accurate and true and he won't let it go. The evidence of the truth of the list was slapping Shurtleff silly as illegal aliens deserted the DWS as thieves for fear of being caught committing fraud.

It's a Utah state government thing, they cannot allow this cheap and illegal labor force to be exposed and criminals and frauds. If illegal are forced out of the state the schools lose federal head tax funds and other federal funds based on numbers that are stealing it.

What Shurtleff should be doing is prosecuting the DWS boss and all 1300 identity theft thieves for fraud, then the judge should throw this case out of court and put the whistle blowers in protective custody.

The attorney generals office reported that 32 of the 34 social security numbers reported were fraudulent. Since they were used illegally to gain government services, were these people also investigated and have charges pending? It's a felony at the very least. Or is this just a message to the citizens not to report criminal activity when people here illegally are involved?

I am very afraid to talk to police in this state, and dealing with the Attorney Generals office should be avoided at all costs. We are living in a scary state right now.

Illegally obtained evidence cannot be used in a court of law. If this employee suspected illegal activity, it was her duty to report it up the chain and have the evidence gathered legally. It's call due process, perhaps the two previous commenters should do a little research on it.

If it was illegally obtained, wouldn't it be in Federal court?

They have not been charged yet, bust it seems they are already convicted by many.
Whistle blower laws apply here, and they followed the law correctly by reporting it to the Federal government first.

The question remains, will the 32 social security numbers that are fraudulent be charged, or just the American citizens?

After decades of being an honest citizen, I will think twice before I report a crime.

If I were on the jury hearing this case she'd get a medal. We need to give the boot to those who have entered our country illegally .... just like they do in Mexico.

I believe these ladies did the general public a favor. Over the past couple of weeks all I see are reports of Violent crimes committed by people who should not be in this country.

What if by picking them up and sending them back saves a couple people from a premature death then I am okay with that.

On the other hand I can see why they want to be in America look how dangerous and crazy it is in other countries right now, who would want to raise a family in that. So in that sense illegal immigrants have my support but not if they get caught up in the gang style crime on the public.

I feel there is a solution to the immigration problem, these people pay thousands to get snuck across the boarder. Instead let them pay it toward the US and 5% of all there wages annually for 5 years and give them citizenship and entitlement rights after they pay their dues.
