(Tea Party 247) – Illegal immigrants are desperate to find any loophole they can to give the appearance that they have a legal right to be in the United States. The sad truth is, there are too many loopholes and immigrants are very clever when it comes to exploiting them.
One female migrant who obtained a US visa under questionable circumstances, has pleaded guilty to running a scam in which she assisted other illegal immigrants in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, in exploiting the same loophole she used to obtain her own visa.
CBS Minnesota reports:
Yuridia Hernandez Linares, 36, plead guilty to orchestrating a plan for undocumented individuals to get U Visas, by faking armed robberies, for a price of $2,000.
According to the criminal complaint, Hernandez Linares would cut the individuals with a box cutter, to make it appear there was an armed robbery, and then they would report the incident to police. U Visas — which provide temporary protection from deportation —are considered for victims who cooperate with police or prosecutors.
In her guilty plea, Hernandez Linares agreed with the facts of the criminal complaint filed in November.
She is currently in custody, awaiting sentencing on January 30. She faces up to 10 years in prison and/or a $20,000 fine.
According to a statement made by local police, Linares is believed to have reported three armed robberies which never actually occurred, including one in which she was allegedly the victim.
Police Chief Greg Weber: Alleged Robberies on Anderson Lakes Parkway Did Not Occur https://t.co/DIRsckiejK

“Over the past few months, and dating back to 2015, our Department has been investigating three armed robbery incidents reported to have occurred in Eden Prairie,” Eden Prairie Police Chief Greg Weber announced back in November. “After making an arrest, Eden Prairie Police turned the investigation over to the Hennepin County Attorney, who filed criminal charges Friday, Nov. 15.”
“With the announcement of these charges, I want the Eden Prairie community to know the armed robberies reported to have taken place along Anderson Lakes Parkway on Oct. 25, 2015, Aug. 20, 2019, and Aug. 30, 2019, did not occur.”
Linares obtained her visa through lying to the police with knowledge of the loophole that would allow for her to get a visa by being the victim of a crime. In the supposed robbery on Oct. 25, 2015, Linares and a friend reportedly claimed they had been robbed at knifepoint by two black males.
Within about five months, Eden Prairie police received a request to sign off on a U visa for Linares. Well, that certainly seemed to work out well for her. Too bad for Linares, she decided to press her luck and help others run the same scheme. Lucky for US taxpayers, law enforcement in Eden Prairie weren’t to be fooled.
“During the investigation, police identified Linares as an associate of the individuals in the Aug. 20 incident, and noted that Linares reported a similar incident in October 2015,” CBS Minnesota reported in November. “Back then, Linares and her friend reported that their purses were stolen and that they had been cut with knives.”
“In March 2016, Eden Prairie police received a letter requesting a U visa for Linares, which the police chief signed. A U visa can be issued to cooperating crime victims, who are undocumented.”
Linares is a clever woman and even sought to turn a profit on revealing the secret of this loophole to other illegal aliens and helping them to carry out their own fake armed robberies for the bargain price of $5,000.
After she serves her time, should she be sentenced to jail time, she should be immediately deported along with all other illegal aliens involved.
