Texas ships thousands of driver licenses to Chinese organized crime group | Signs of recession – Pratt on Texas 2/27/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Texas among states that shipped thousands of driver licenses to a “Chinese” organized crime group. At least 3000 Texas of Asian origin have been affected. This was not a hacking job but instead a huge operation using people’s stolen personal information found on the “dark web” to request replacement driver licenses. It would be hard to convince me this isn’t part of the Chinese Communist Party’s radically broad efforts to undermine the USA.

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.
