“In each of these instances the clerk has called the police after suspecting
that false documents have been presented, which is an illegal activity. Any
time officers are made aware of criminal activity they have a legal
obligation to respond and investigate. If it is determined that a crime has

  1. Morristown Police Department answered to our request for more information on the alleged cases of illegal immigrants being reported by the Morristown Utilities Services. The reports they received were of individuals who were presenting false documentation in order to get utility services. Presenting false documentation is a crime.
    We have been largely reporting in efforts to educate the communities, that it is better for those with no documentation to avoid purchasing from companies and individuals who offer ID cards and International Driver’s Licenses. Those companies and individuals advertise in the local Spanish-only newspapers claiming that the documents they sell will solve the problems of those who have not resolved their legal status in the country.
