This week’s award goes to a certain Yupeng Deng, whose ingenious scheme to defraud Chinese nationals seeking American citizenship was just unraveled by theLos Angeles District Attorney. Not only did he deceive aspiring immigrants into believing they were joining the United States Armed Forces-when all they were doing was enriching him-but in twofer, he indulges in child pornography.
As we’ve documented in the past, California is ground zero for immigration fraud and abuse, including judicial protection of illegal aliens, exploitation of the 14th Amendment’s Naturalization Clause, illegal entry, and virtually every other conceivable form of devastation wrought by a permissive attitude towards individuals who scoff at our country’s immigration laws and naturalization process.
So it should come as no surprise that a huckster would seek to exploit the ignorance of Chinese nationals living in the state in order to bankroll his own twisted lifestyle. The fact that he was able to get away with this charade for so long merely illustrates how far California has fallen, and how different it now is from the state that was the envy of the country-and the globe-only a few short decades ago.
Yupeng Deng is the type of individual you attract when you relinquish control of your borders and do away with any reasonable criteria for excluding unattractive foreign nationals from your society. His arrest should serve as a lesson to the rest of the country of what can happen when you allow anarchy to reign where stability and order once stood.
