DMV forgery acquittals follow string of guilty pleas
Prosecutors were optimistic going into court against three Hillsboro brothers accused of helping thousands of nonresidents fraudulently obtain Oregon driver's licenses.
Eight others in Oregon's biggest immigration fraud case already had pleaded guilty to a collection of charges, including racketeering and forgery. And many of those were lined up to testify against Miguel, Fabio and Sergio Robleto, who prosecutors said were the brains behind a scheme run from the brothers' driver training and testing businesses.
But on Tuesday, a Washington County judge closed cases against Fabio and Sergio Robleto after finding them not guilty of all charges. A different judge acquitted Miguel Robleto in November.
Others who pleaded guilty said they brought illegal immigrants from other states to the two schools, helped them fill out driver's license applications with phony information and took them to Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services offices to have the documents certified.
The important part in this whole story is in that paragraph: "they brought illegal immigrants from other states." You can't get away with this garbage in other states. Only Oregon is so friendly to illegal aliens.
