ATLANTA - Four former driver's license examiners are among six people accused of a scheme to issue licenses to illegal immigrants in exchange for thousands of dollars.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Thursday that a federal grand jury charged 33-year-old Shijuanna V. Cobb of Ellenwood, 31-year-old Rickell M. Patterson of Covington, 38-year-old Angela R. Read of Lithonia and 23-year-old Chardye M. Lloyd of Conyers with conspiracy to commit identify fraud.

Officials say they issued 136 illegal licenses from the state Department of Driver Services in Lithonia.

Also indicted were 48-year-old Satishkumar B. Patel of Nashville, Tenn., and Harikrishna A. Patel of Snellville, a 26-year-old accused of charging immigrants $7,000 to $8,000 for licenses.

The stand the Bush

The stand the Bush administration took on illegal immigration encouraged this activity. I'm glad to see this crime prosecuted, but I look for all charges to be dropped on Jan. 20.

In my opinion the offer of "Free Money" encouraged this activity.The positive on this is there are a lot of people who need jobs that will be glad for the chance to go to work for the state. Obviously, these folk's jobs weren't too important to them.
