WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Jurors have begun deliberating the immigration fraud case of a self-proclaimed grand chief of the Kaweah Indian Nation.

The U.S. District Court jury received the case against 70-year-old Malcom Webber early Tuesday afternoon. Webber had been expected to take the stand Tuesday but declined to do so, and the defense rested without calling any witnesses.

Webber is charged with selling memberships costing $50 to more than $1,000 apiece to legal and illegal immigrants in Kansas, Nebraska and else across the country by falsely claiming tribal membership conferred U.S. citizenship and other benefits.
