Shipments Of 20,000 Fake IDs From China Seized By Feds Ahead Of Election

“These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences.”

With 85 days until the presidential election, fears are increasing that foreign adversaries, such as China, Russia, and Iran, could attempt to undermine the election.

Foreign states, more specifically China, could use covert and overt measures to sway votes from President Trump.

Already, there was an incident in June, when Chinese video app TikTok saw users band together and falsely reserve tickets for President Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which resulted in an embarrassingly low turnout. As a result, the administration when on the offensive against the app and has since signed an executive order to ban it next month.

China could also be attempting to undermine the election by sending counterfeit driver’s licenses to the U.S. So far, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at Chicago O’Hare International Airport have intercepted close to 20,000 counterfeit U.S. driver’s licenses shipped from China this year, reported FOX 5 New York.

Hidden within contents of packages arriving via international cargo, the counterfeit driver’s licenses were shipped mainly from Hong Kong and mainland China. Other shipments came from South Korea and the U.K.

“These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences,” CBP’s Ralph Piccirilli said in a statement.

“Criminal organizations use these counterfeit I.D.s to avoid attracting attention to their illegal activities.”

While many of the driver’s licenses were for underage college students, there was an alarming discovery as one was able to be scanned.

“These fraudulent identity documents can lead to identity theft, worksite enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, fraud linked to immigration-related crimes such as human smuggling and human trafficking,” CBP said in a press release, adding that, “these documents can be used by those individuals associated with terrorism to minimize scrutiny from travel screening measures.”

While one can only assume the intention of these counterfeit driver’s licenses from China is for underage college students to use at bars, readers should keep in mind it is an election year. China is out to get the president, and if that means creating fake driver’s licenses, that could potentially be used to conduct voter fraud.

My thoughts would be more to the point that,somebody in the US is getting fake ID’s made in China.Makes me think back when you boil it all down, its always the US that screams poor me everybody is against me nobody loves me all want to rip me off. MMMM food for thought. The US always seems to get caught with its hand in the cookie tin, then blames everybody else.

Misleading. The headline implies that one big shipment was intercepted, when in fact this is the sum of fake IDs intercepted so far, including those coming from South Korea and the U.K. The article also mentions that ‘ many of the driver’s licenses were for underage college students’. So where is the news here? Mostly kids and a few criminals ordering fake IDs online. As if that is news.
