Texas Department of Public Safety employee conspired with two Cuban citizens residing in Texas, to fraudulently issue 215 CDLs to mostly immigrant applicants who failed to pass or even take the skills portion of the required testing.

OH, no one is surprised?

Texas DPS indicated Blackman received “tens of thousands of dollars” from January 1, 2017 to June 30, 2019.

Marino Maury Diaz Leon, 52, of San Antonio and Fernando Guardado Vazquez, 40, of Pflugerville provided Blackman the names and information of the applicants, Blackman then falsely certified that applicant had passed the skills portion of the CDL test and prepared and printed a temporary CDL license for that applicant.

According to the indictment, the majority of the fraudulently obtained CDLs were created for Cuban citizens residing within the United States.

Court documents show that 197 went to Cuban nationals, 11 to U.S. citizens, one to a Dominican Republic national, one to an Ethiopian, one to an Iraqi, one to a Puerto Rican, one to a Ukraine national and two to Mexican nationals.
