Well, here’s a trend I hope catches on (oh, and so much for being “undocumented,” eh?): A Framingham man who told police he can’t afford to return to his native Guatemala, turned himself in Saturday on identity theft charges so he could eventually be deported, police said. Carlos F. Boc, 29, told officers he had […]
