Illegal immigrant from Mexico pleads guilty to using fake identity to steal $361,000 in government benefits | Fox News


Andres Avelino Anduaga, 66 – who hails from Tijuana, Mexico – admitted in San Diego federal court on Thursday that he assumed the fake identity of a Texas resident named Abraham Riojos in 1980 after obtaining a fraudulent birth certificate, and then successfully applied for a California driver’s license, Social Security number and passport.

From 1989 to 2016, according to the plea agreement, he received around $361,000 in benefits — which included Medi-Cal, food stamps and Supplemental Security Income benefits.

The fake identity also enabled Anduaga – identified as an illegal immigrant and repeat felon – to go back-and-forth without restriction between Mexico and the United States, which he was alleged to have been doing multiple times per week.

”The programs that this defendant stole from – for decades – provide benefits to America’s most needy. This prosecution demonstrates the commitment of the United States Attorney’s Office to protecting the integrity of our welfare programs and punishing those who prey on the goodwill of our nation and its taxpayers,” stated U.S Attorney Adam Braverman.


Investigators also located the real Abraham Riojos, now residing in Florida, who said he had no indication that his identity had deceitfully been used for so long. Authorities have not made clear how Anduaga feigned the identity, but it is believed the two did not know each other and never made contact.

Anduaga is required to pay back the full amount of government funds he fraudulently received, and faces twelve years behind bars and additional fines.

Sentencing is slated for May 29.

Heart mindfulness

The heart-mind in Buddhism is often called Citta. There are other words for mind like vijnana and manas. Citta usually means consciousness of both thoughts and emotions. But the meaning differed depending on the school and the time period. In the west citta was quickly seen as mind only and the heart was left out.
In modern times there has been a lot of research into the influence of the heart on emotions. For instance by the heartmath institute. Itseems that the heart is the center of the magnetic field which surround us.
The heart thus plays a significant role in emotions. We all know that the mind does too. Thinking can lead to a change in feeling and emotions can change your thinking. Heartmindfull means that you listen to both heart and mind. Emotions are not bad, but like pain they give a signal to body and mind. How we deal with that signal is the question.

Today’s Birthday: Jack Sheppard (1702)

Today’s Birthday:
Jack Sheppard (1702)

A popular English criminal who served as the basis for the character Macheath in John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera, Sheppard was arrested and imprisoned five times in 1724 alone. The first four times, he escaped. The fifth time, he was executed. Because his crimes were all non-violent, he was well liked, especially by the lower classes, and he became a fixture in the folklore of the era. His execution resembled a party, with the 22-year-old stopping to do what on his way to the gallows? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History:
The Collinwood School Fire (1908)

In one of the deadliest disasters of its kind in the United States, 172 children and three adults were killed when an elementary school caught fire in Collinwood, Ohio. Though the building’s doors opened outward, they were fitted with regular door latches instead of panic bars, which hindered the evacuation. As the conflagration rapidly spread, many children became trapped. Within two years of the disaster, residents of Collinwood voted to make what dramatic change to their community?

Article of the Day: Cremation

Article of the Day:

Cremation is a widespread practice that dates to at least 26,000 years ago and is, for many, related to a belief in fire’s purifying nature. The practice fell out of favor among Christians until the late 19th c, when people began to recognize the health risk posed by overcrowded cemeteries in large urban centers. Though a log pyre was initially used in cremation, modern methods expose the corpse not to flames but to intense heat that reduces the body to ashes. Which religions prohibit cremation?
