This is exactly why President Trump has been cracking down on welfare programs in the country. There are millions of hardworking Americans who are being taxed to death to pay for slackers on welfare just to have these scum steal more of our hard-earned dollars. Well, thankfully two immigrants were found in a massive scam and thrown in jail but it only makes you wonder how many more are out there.
Here is more Conservative Daily Post:
Just recently, two brothers who immigrated to the Portland, Oregon from Iraq back in 2009, were found guilty of ripping off United States taxpayers by engaging in welfare fraud over the course of approximately five years.
Apparently, the two men, who have since been identified as 41-year-old Ali Ratib Daham and 23-year-old Abdulkareem Daham, would let people exchange the credit that they received from government programs like Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for a discounted amount of cash at a halal market that they owned from 2011 to 2016. The liberal media is choosing to ignore the fact that the men were Muslim immigrants.
Disturbingly, though, after being convicted in what the federal prosecutor called “one of the largest, if not the largest, fraud cases involving [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] benefits in [Maine],” both of the immigrants, whose ethnic identification has been largely ignored by multiple news outlets, consequently received a mere slap on the wrist for their halal scam.
Specifically, the older brother, who became naturalized as an American citizen back in 2013, was only given a three years prison sentence for “conspiracy to defraud the US government, money laundering, and theft of government funds” while the younger brother, who will face deportation after serving his time, was sentenced to just two years behind bars for “conspiracy to defraud the government.” Following their sentences, both men will also be on supervised release for three years.
