A woman that some labeled as the ‘welfare princess’ was caught in one of the most riveting welfare abuse scandals that many have seen for quite a while. This incident happened when a model named Carina Reid took advantage of the system and allegedly used the money for extravagant trips and meals. If you thought welfare abuse was just something people living in poverty did, then think again. This lady allegedly cashed the checks and spent taxpayer money on all sorts of fancy things. She wined, dined, and nevermind.
Part of the reason that she was able to be investigated or arrested on the charges was that her story and her lifestyle on Facebook didn’t match up. According to reports, she was a model who was claiming to be so poor that she ate free food from a mosque. However, when looking at her Facebook profile pictures, the investigators noticed her living a lavish lifestyle, taking trips, eating fancy expensive meals, and living it up all on the taxpayer dime. This is likely what prompted a deeper investigation into her lifestyle and how she suddenly went from rags to riches. Apparently, it was easy. She just cashed some checks and used the taxpayer money! Now she’s being found guilty of the crime and could spend several years in prison for what the cops found.
Daily Mail wrote:
“A model who claimed she was so poor she had to accept free food from a mosque has been jailed for three years after benefits investigators unearthed her glamorous lifestyle on Facebook.
Carina Reid, 32, who lived in a flat on Chelsea’s fashionable King’s Road in West London after buying it with a deposit of £20,000, had 19 bank accounts containing £180,000.
But she claimed more than £50,000 in housing and council tax benefits to help fund holidays to Hong Kong, Dubai, Spain, Portugal, France and Switzerland and meals at luxury restaurants.
Reid, who also worked as a beautician, told the council that she had no savings and had taken no holidays between 2009 and 2014 – but was jailed for three years at Isleworth Crown Court yesterday for dishonestly claiming benefits.
The court heard how self-employed Reid first claimed benefits from Kensington and Chelsea Council in 2009, stating she earned a very low income from her beauty business Enhance.
But an investigation found her Facebook profile showed her taking holidays to various countries, sipping champagne in Harrods and dining at top London establishments including Scotts, the Dorchester Hotel and the Berkeley Hotel.
A profile of Reid on the Enhance website said she was a ‘senior medical aesthetician’ who had ‘worked with a wide range of clientele, from VIP film stars, TV and radio presenters as well as on magazine shoots and celebrity events.’
Her King’s Road flat was purchased with a deposit of £20,000, and she got a mortgage based on her true tax returns which showed that Enhance was a successful business.
She had also sent £116,000 abroad in 2013-2014 to acquire property in Dubai, and her LinkedIn profile indicated her desire to expand her business to Dubai and Los Angeles.
Eight of the nine dishonesty charges related to Reid’s failure to declare savings of £180,000 in 19 separate bank accounts.”
There’s even more to the story with her likely charges. The worst part is that Daily Mail reports none of the money was ever paid back. Of course, how could it be paid back if she spent it all and has no way to generate that type of income. If she goes to prison, then she definitely won’t have a way to repay for all the welfare abuse she was caught up in, so it looks like taxpayers might have been ripped off with no way for the system to be replenished and used for someone else who really needs the help.
We’ve seen welfare abuse where people trade food stamps for lower amounts of cash, but this model’s crime is quite a big leap from exchanging a few dollars to buy something that’s not approved, like a bottle of booze. This crime is some high level welfare abuse where she must have gotten a ton of cash to be able to do the things it looks like she’s doing.
Regardless of what she does during or after prison, it seems like the system lost out and it doesn’t seem like they will ever regain the cash. Her time in prison should be spent thinking about a new job.
President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall
When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.
Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”
Do you think Facebook should be regulated so they're forced to treat everyone the same, regardless of their political beliefs, considering their size and influence in society?

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.
SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED
I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.
Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.
Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

The government didn’t spend or receive money from NAFTA. So unless you’re going to raise taxes, there is no money coming into the government from the new deal.

Good, now you can stop bothering Chuck and Nancy about getting our money for it.
— S.Danielle (@sdanielle) December 13, 2018
I am losing faith in you, sir. Why are you asking us taxpayers for 5 billion dollars if the new deal will pay for the wall? You promised that we wouldn’t have to pay for it! Please keep your promise, a free border wall, or I will not vote for you again. #NoWallNoVote pic.twitter.com/eDopbpl7T1

Also the deal still has to be ratified and approved by Congress which probably won't happen until the end of 2019 Or possibly mid 2020. So you're making promises using money you don't have and may possibly not get. What a shocker Mr. Bankruptcy

Well wait until that money is coming in and build it then
— Caren Sykes (@misscsykes12) December 13, 2018
I've decided I'm not buying a Maga hat from you, but instead spend the money on drugs. So, now you pay for my drugs.
— elitaire klimaatdrammer (@graphincent) December 13, 2018
Great so you don't need a penny from Congress or US Taxpayers then. Let us know when Mexico sends you the check for the $5 billion you want for the first payment on the wall. Until then don't bother Americans for the $.
— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) December 13, 2018
No, this means consumers will pay for the wall.
— Carolyn McClanahan (@CarolynMcC) December 13, 2018
If you buy something that normally costs $1000 on sale for $750, you didn't save $250. You spent $750.

Trump's tweets shows how disturbed he is. He cannot deal with being wrong. His psyche will not allow it. To say trump is abnormal is an understatement. America, we have a problem.

Bait and switch

Jeez… I saw that one coming.

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.
Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!
An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.
Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:
An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.
Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.
“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.
Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.
“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”
“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.
“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”
Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.
Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
