Federal ID fraud sweep touches Framingham

Federal prosecutors say nine people were arrested last week in Framingham, Hull, Lawrence, Malden, Medford and Worcester and charged with selling bogus identification documents such as Social Security cards, green cards and alien registration cards.

U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan said in a statement that "it is understandable that many from around the globe would want to come to live, work and raise families here in the greatest democracy in the world. However, this must be done in compliance with United States immigration laws -- not in violation of them."
