Federal officials recently arrested 36 people on charges of illegally obtaining Florida commercial driver’s licenses, according to a June 7 report on eTrucker.com.
The arrests were part of a five-month investigation led by Immigration and Customs Enforcement that led to 52 people being taken into custody, including several Florida driver’s license examiners, the ICE announced.
The ICE announced seven arrests in Maryland and Michigan.
The corrupt Florida examiners charged fees of $100 to $200 to falsely certify an illegal alien as a legal citizen, while the illegals paid go-betweens $1,500 to $3,000 for the service, the ICE announced. The examiners also allegedly issued certifications to haul hazardous materials and access to South Florida ports, the eTrucker.com report said.
