Foreigners deliberately ‘game’ our system to defraud taxpayers and gain citizenship, and THIS is what happens when they get caught?
The Federal Prosecutor is angry, saying this light sentence sends the wrong message after U.S. District Judge James Selna issued his sentence against Dongyuan Li. (This was in Santa Ana, California.)
She was charging customers up to $80,000 for help in defrauding our system.
Li pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy and visa fraud for running a birth tourism company in Southern California known as “You Win USA.”
Federal authorities said the company helped more than 500 Chinese women travel to the United States to deliver American babies, and that Li used a cluster of apartments in Irvine, California, to receive them.
Authorities said the company coached the women to lie on their visa applications and to hide their pregnancies when passing through customs in U.S. airports.
Li was arrested this year following a years-long investigation into birth tourism schemes that charged Chinese travelers tens of thousands of dollars to deliver their babies in Southern California. Authorities said Li was a birth tourism customer and later got involved in running the business. — nYPost
She was expected to be released by Monday for ‘time served’, even though they called for her to spend years in prison.
