Minnesota: Woman Charged with Visa Fraud; Injured Illegals to Help them Get Special Visas

Just when you think you have heard it all, here comes yet another scam on America.

Did you even know there were U-Visas that allow illegal aliens to stay in the US if they have been the victim of a crime.  This creepy woman actually cut her willing accomplices with a box cutter to help create the lie that they were victims!

Thanks to reader Cristina for sending me the story from last month.  (I am getting behind due to the distractions of life these days.)  Which reminds me to say I hope all of you are doing well and staying healthy.

From the US Justice Department:

Woman Orchestrated Scheme To Obtain U Visas, Charged With Visa Fraud

YURIDIA HERNANDEZ LINARES got off lightly for the local charges against her, but must now face federal charges for conspiracy to commit visa fraud. Don’t miss this local news account from January where we learn she pulled the trick four years earlier to obtain her own U Visa. https://www.kare11.com/article/news/crime/woman-sentenced-in-fake-armed-robbery-scam/89-fdb71b8a-d299-4c8b-8b1c-ae6ff0ee3e78

“According to the allegations in the indictment, between August 20, 2019, and September 30, 2019, LINARES conspired with other individuals to defraud the United States by making false statements to fraudulently obtain U Nonimmigrant Visas (“U-Visas”), for four individuals.

Victims of certain criminal activities that occur in the United States may be eligible to apply for and obtain a U Visa. A victim who obtains a U Visa may subsequently apply to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to adjust their status to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States.

According to the allegations in the indictment, LINARES devised and participated in a detailed scheme, whereby the four individuals each falsely reported to the Eden Prairie Police Department that they were victims of robberies committed in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

LINARES directed the individuals to file a police report stating that they were a victim of a fabricated assault, and to corroborate each other’s account of the assault. LINARES used a box cutter or other sharp object to cut the four individuals before they filed their false report with the Eden Prairie Police Department. In exchange, LINARES collected a $2,000 fee from each individual.”

  1. The mental sickness in the human race never ceases to amaze!!! And, that applies to the national Democrat Party leadership who are directly responsible for both the perpetrator and the victims in this case!!!!!!

  2. I believe the visa this woman thought she could get for her customers was based on their being witnesses for the authorities, thus possibly jeopardizing their safety. While there is such a visa, it is far more difficult to get than by simply claiming you have been a crime victim.

    The law enforcement authorities have to be convinced the person is in some sort of real danger for reporting the crime. Obviously they would have to investigate the claim to a get extent, and find convincing evidence the crime occurred, the victim is a potential witness, then assess the risks.

    Even small police departments wouldn’t fall for this hoax crime and even if they did, they have to get the visa through ICE. The federal agency would require quite a bit of information from the law enforcement agency seeking the visa status for the “victim.”

    Hernandez is an idiot and deserves what she gets. I only hope and pray she is a deportable alien. As for her “victims,” they were victims in the sense they paid her.

  3. Ship her illegal-ass back to her shithole country, that she was spat out of-and all those who conspired with her!
