"It is a serious federal crime to hijack and steal a citizen's good name and credit to illegally stay in the United States," said U.S. Attorney Richard B. Roper. "These federal indictments demonstrate federal law enforcement's commitment to address rampant identity theft and immigration fraud."

Besides the Social Security count, most of the 53 defendants were also charged with aggravated identity theft, having fraudulent immigration documents, and false representation of U.S. citizenship, authorities said. Those charges carry maximum sentences ranging up to 10 years in prison plus fines.

Seven people were charged with re-entering the country after deportation, and two were charged with aggravated felon re-entry, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
