Bizarro-world, Colorado Edition

The Colorado Supreme Court has somehow managed to conclude that an illegal alien did not commit any crimes when he used a stolen Social Security number to get a job in the U.S., as well as apply for an auto loan:

'"We cannot conclude that [Felix] Montes-Rodriguez pretended to be another person in his loan application simply because he supplied a false Social Security number,' Justice Michael Bender wrote in his majority opinion."

Incredible.  How can those actions not be viewed as constituting felony theft and fraud?

We'll have to file that court decision away for future reference in case the need ever arises for us to move to that state and fraudulently assume another person's identity, tax history and credit rating, since that action apparently isn't a criminal offense there.

Well, the card used to say "not for identification purposes," a promise of FDR's that is of course a mockery now.

And of course, ICE could not be contacted.....
