SCOTUS: Filing False Tax Return Is A Deportable Offense

One Old Vet reports:

Opinion recap: Court holds that filing false tax return is a deportable offense
Kevin Russell Contributor: Yesterday, the Court issued its decision in Kawashima v. Holder, holding that filing a false tax return is grounds for deportation.

Background:
The petitioners in the case, Mr. and Mrs. Kawashima, had been lawful permanent residents of the United States since 1984. In 1997, Mr. Kawashima was convicted of filing, and his wife was convicted of helping him to file, a false corporate tax return that understated their income and therefore deprived the government of owed tax revenue – violations of Section 7206 of the tax code.

A provision of immigration law allows the government to deport anyone who is convicted of an “aggravated felony.” Originally, the term was defined narrowly to include crimes like murder and drug trafficking. But over time, Congress has expanded the definition, so that it now includes any offense that “(i) involves fraud or deceit in which the loss to the victim or victims exceeds $10,000; or (ii) is described in section 7201 of title 26 (relating to tax evasion) in which the revenue loss to the government exceeds $10,000.” [Full Story]

SCOTUS decision begs the questions: What constitutes "filing a false tax return?" What about using false social security numbers, false names, false addresses? What about submitting false birth certificates to secure a social security number? All these situations have been done been done by illegal aliens. After breaking the law by illegally entering the United States, illegal aliens continue to break other laws in order to reside in the U.S., to work (take jobs from U.S. citizens) in the United States and to secure government benefits including medical and eduction for their illegal family members.
