Chris LaRiche seduces immigrants with lies

He offered empty promises but had secrets of his own

"This one hits you in the face," Freeman says. "He uses a false name, testifies to false relationships—boom, boom, bingo!"

Freeman's office recently filed a request with ICE to transfer Martinez-Alanis back into Hennepin County custody. They plan to take him to trial and are working to add felony theft-by-swindle charges.

When Martinez-Alanis's criminal case is over, he will be deported.

"One of the things he was doing is suggesting he'd find jobs for people for a fee and pocket the money," Freeman says. "We haven't seen that kind of chutzpah in a long time."

It is sad that these people deliberately chose to violate our nation's immigration laws. Hopefully they will find peace and comfort once they are repatriated to their homelands.

This type of guy is the lowest of the low. He is bold enough to hide in plain sight and make bold claims that easily fool desperate illegals. He deserves the maximum sentence and should not be deported until he serves his full sentence. I bet this only scratches the surface of his illegal actions.

Interesting article, but if the mark of good journalism is the thoroughness of its reporting, it feels a bit lacking. "Notarios" is not an exotic legal position without an equivalent in American law. It's simply a shortened form of "Notario Publico," or the very, very familiar notary public.

Very interesting article highlighting how greed always has and continues to be a huge motivation for the exploitation of people who have very little power. It is amazing how this man, Martinez-Alanis, was able to exploit so many undocumented immigrants when he was one himself.

As an immigration attorney in Mpls, I see all types of sad stories of people taking advantage of undocumented immigrants. Thank you to David Wilson for helping his clients fight back and thank you as well to Gregory Pratt and City Pages for focusing on an issue which is too often ignored.
