Arizona State Official ARRESTED For Taking Part In A “Baby Selling Scheme” Involving Immigrants

, , 65 Comments

This guy was a part of a million dollar illegal immigration fraud scheme. And he just got caught.

According to a report by the Daily Mail, an Arizona state official named Paul Petersen has just been ARRESTED for taking part in a “baby selling scheme”. He was getting pregnant immigrant women to fly in from the Marshall Islands to the state of Utah so that he could sell the babies after they were born on American soil.

He Sold Babies For Up To $40,000 Each

According to the report, Petersen was charged with illegally paying women from the Pacific island nation to come to the United States to give up their babies in at least 70 adoption cases in Arizona, Utah and Arkansas over three years.

The women brought to Utah to give birth received little or no prenatal care and their passports were taken while they were in the US to assert control over them, authorities said.

Prosecutors say that he charged American families anywhere from $25,000 to $40,000 to buy the children after the children were put up for adoption.

Petersen has reportedly agreed to plead guilty in Utah to three counts of human smuggling and one count of communications fraud, all charges he’s facing are felonies.

Hospital Officials Called The Police

The initial investigation began after state officials in Utah were called by staff at several hospitals in Salt Lake City. In 2017, hospital officials noticed that there was an “influx” of women from the Marshall Islands that were giving birth and putting their babies up for adoption.

What was suspicious for the medical staff was that all of the women were usually accompanied by the same woman, who reportedly worked for Petersen.

Petersen faces up to 15 years in prison, a $50,000 fine and a requirement to shut down his adoption practice in Utah. He is expected to plea guilty to a federal charge of harboring aliens for financial gain in Arkansas, which carries up to 10 years in federal prison.

Do YOU think he deserves to be punished? Comment below!

    Ok since this article didn’t mention this politician or official was a Republican. He or SHE ! Was a demo-commie.

    You can always tell when the media are covering for the left. It this were a conservative. We would have his or her name, address, phone number, shoe size and where they bought their clothing.

    I should have researched this MORON before my first post. Because I’ve seen the media do what I posted so often covering for demo-commies. But this criminal was a Republican or IMHO a RINO.

    He should be sent up for the max amount of time. But it’s known. With those like Romney, Coker, McStain and many others in the Gop. Are just demo-commies who ran on the Gop to get elected and then stab those who elected him or her in the back for political and personal gain.

    He was/is part of the Mormon/LDS church like Romney. The mormon cults have a lot of this stuff going on. Google Ervil Lebaron, the Mormon Manson or the Lebaron Polygamist group in mexico.
    The scum bag needs the max. sentence.

    don’t you dare to claim that all Later Day Saints are in a cult, we believe in God and Jesus Christ and do all he asks of us but not what you are accusing us for, since their a good and bad in all walks of life and if you keep on doing your stupid things be prepared to be judged accordingly.

    I think that everything published was very logical.

    However, consider this, what if you added a little content?

    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website,
    but what if you added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Arizona State Official ARRESTED For Taking Part In A
    “Baby Selling Scheme” Involving Immigrants – Liberty News Alerts
    is a little boring. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create
    article titles to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
