The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that by the end of June, the agency had intercepted over 1,500 shipments, containing 19,888 fake driver’s licenses, at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Most of them originated from Communist China and now occupied Hong Kong.

Is it just a coincidence that they are arriving just months before the US federal election in November?

WND reports:

“These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences,” said Ralph Piccirilli, the acting port director in Chicago. “Criminal organizations use these counterfeit IDs to avoid attracting attention to their illegal activities.”

According to Ballotpedia, 34 states require identification to vote in the November presidential election, with 18 requiring a photo ID.

In its news release, CBP added:

These fraudulent identity documents can lead to identity theft, worksite enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, fraud linked to immigration-related crimes such as human smuggling and human trafficking, and these documents can be used by those individuals associated with terrorism to minimize scrutiny from travel screening measures.
