GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Five suspected illegal immigrants are headed to prison for their roles in a massive West Michigan counterfeiting ring.

A federal judge handed down sentences this week ranging from eight months up to nearly four years in prison for members of the group.  Prosecutors say the ring operated in Kent and Ottawa counties, producing thousands of fake ID's and Social Security cards

After serving prison time, most group members also face deportation to Mexico.
