A Mexican citizen in Witchita, Kansas is scheduled for sentencing regarding one count of identity theft. The 62 year old Jorge Alvarez Rivera, a.k.a. Daniel Salas, is scheduled for sentencing on January 11, 2010 for making a false claim of U.S. citizenship and identity theft, charges that he pleaded guilty to last month.
However, Rivera is also linked to thousands of U.S. birth certificates produced for illegal immigrants. In fact, more than a decade ago, Rivera was found with more than 830 Kansas birth certificates hidden in the trunk of his vehicle after he was involved in an auto accident. However, he was never prosecuted for this crime.
Fortunately, he is finally being taken off the streets.
