ICE Confirms Amnesty For Another Group Of Illegal Aliens

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a misnomer if there ever was one, recently formalized what was their previously informal amnesty for illegal aliens arrested for traffic offences.  This is clearly in reaction to the anticipated major defeat for the Regime over the Arizona statute, Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, commonly and mistakenly known as SB 1070.

Yahoo News/Associated Press April 27, 2012
Immigration Eases Up On Minor Traffic Cases
WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigration officials say they will no longer immediately detain suspectedillegal immigrants who are arrested only on minor traffic violations and have no criminal history.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez said Friday that immigration agents will now consider detaining people arrested on minor traffic offenses — provided they have no criminal history — only if they are convicted of these offenses.
The change responds to recommendations from a task force that reviewed a federal program that checks arrestees' fingerprints against immigration records.

It is clear that ICE anticipates a huge increase in reported illegal aliens from Arizona once the Supreme Court rules in Arizona's favor.  So it is taking affirmative steps to stop any increase in arrests of illegal aliens in Arizona and any other states that follow the lead of Arizona by bringing illegal aliens to its attention.  It will be a defacto repeal of the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, rendering it ineffective.  All to the benefit of illegal aliens.

Obama Regime Continues To Lie To The Supreme Court

Another important fact regarding the Obama Regime's apparent failure today at the Supreme Court is that they are continuing to lie to the Court regarding asylum seekers.

HuffPo April 25, 2012 by Mike Sacks

SB 1070: Supreme Court Appears To Favor Arizona On Controversial Immigration Law

Alito, too, appeared willing to maintain the lower court's blocking of the criminal sanctions. "We are told that there are some important categories of aliens," such as those with pending asylum applications, who "cannot obtain federal registration, and yet they are people that nobody would think should be removed," Alito said.
In fact, asylum seekers are issued immigration documents by the Federal government, and in any event, neither Arizona or any other State will be deporting any aliens. Once released from DHS custody, an asylum seeker is granted parole status, given a parole document, and given an employment authorization document. The Federal government will be doing that.  And an asylum seeker is not an asylum applicant until they file an application with the Federal government.  By definition those aliens are both known to the Federal government and are not removed until the asylum process is finished. 
The deportation of asylum seekers is a red herring.  And it appears that the Regime lied in its brief to the Court, stating explicitly that asylum seekers could be deported some how if an Arizona officer asks for their immigration papers, which an asylum seeker will in any event have.
Lies on top of lies.  What do you expect from Barak Hussein Obama, Muslim, advocate of infanticide, and racist.

Guess Who Has Been Reading My Blog?

It appears that Chief Justice John Roberts has seen postings on the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty:

NYT April 25, 2012 by Adam Liptak

Chief Justice Roberts said the state law merely requires that the federal government be informed of immigration violations and leaves enforcement decisions to it. "It seems to me that the federal government just doesn't want to know who is here illegally and who's not," he said.
It is good to know that I have very important people reading me, or at least that news that I have broken is now in the national debate.

Secret Service Agents Not Going Quietly Into The Night

Secret Service agents and officers are party animals. So are soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.  They have a stressful and much demanding duties, long hours and prescious little pay for the hours they work.  And like most Alpha males they like to blow off steam.  Contrary to the beliefs of some that they are sinless guardians, they can be quite randy.  And they are pushing back from the ill advised disiplinary actions over the non-event in Cartagena.

WaPo April 24, 2012 by Carol Leonnig and David Nakamura

Some Secret Service employees accused of misconduct in the Colombian prostitution scandal are privately contending that their conduct didn’t warrant dismissal because senior managers tolerated similar behavior during official trips, according to people familiar with the employees’ thinking.
Several of the men who agreed to resign under pressure last week are also considering reversing their decisions and fighting to keep their jobs, said the people knowledgeable about the case.
The prospect of Secret Service agents sharing embarrassing tales about rank-and-file employees and superiors partying to the hilt could bring more anguish to an agency reeling from scandal.
Those close to the accused employees said that in an effort to fight for their jobs they could opt to divulge details of how colleagues spent some of their downtime on presidential trips — drinking heavily, visiting strip clubs and cavorting with women for hire.
“Of course it has happened before” said one agent not implicated in the matter, remarking on the Secret Service’s history of occasionally licentious partying. “This is not the first time. It really only blew up in this case because the [U.S. Embassy] was alerted.”
Contrary to the claims of Jed Babbin, who as a former Air Force officer should know better about licensiousness of airmen and officers at Clark Air Base in the Philippines, the Secret Service hasn't had a blue nose attitude like the FBI under Hoover or the Treasury Department's Prohibition enforcers, at least in private.  And the infamous girls of Angeles City tell us about the tendency of airmen and officers to seek out loose women.  So people like Babbin should deal with some facts first.

Since there is no credible information about anything other than some agents and officers were at sometime involved with ladies of the evening, which is legal in Cartagena, there is nothing to be concerned about.  Even the beautiful Dania admitted that she never knew they were in Cartagena for Obama's visit.  It isn't even clear that she was upfront about her profession when first meeting the agents. Remember, she was first drinking with them at a night club.  It is likely that she sprung the price on the morning after.  But, don't forget, it ain't illegal there.  And there ain't no USSS rule or regulation that prohibits sex outside of marriage.
But it does look like the Secret Service, by coming down on these agents prematurely, will make the matter worse.

More ICE Fail

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) claims they do smart immigration enforcement.  They further claim that auditing employers of illegal aliens is cost-effective enforcement.  A part of the audit strategy is not actually arresting the illegal aliens involved.  Of course, they usually just get jobs elsewhere and don't leave the country.  It appears that illegals and employers care so little for ICE HSI audits that illegals immediately go back to work for their former employers.

The Seattle Times April 24, 2012 by Manuel Valdez

Federal prosecutors say a Washington state herb farm forced to fire more than 200 illegal immigrants because of a government audit, rehired dozens of those workers - paid them cash and asked them to work at night - because production began to plummet.

Duvall, Wash.-based HerbCo International, Inc., now faces four federal criminal charges. Prosecutors say the company knowingly hired illegal immigrants...

Court documents say that after an anonymous tip, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents audited the farm in 2011 and found 214 workers didn't have valid documentation. HerbCo officials then fired those workers and hired a labor firm to provide workers, but production was still disrupted.

Worried that contracts would be in peril, company officials hired 86 illegal immigrants back, paid cash and had them work graveyard shifts to put production back on track.

So much for "smart" immigration enforcement.  Audits are not enforcement.  Raids are smart enforcement.

Arizona Economy Booming Without Illegal Aliens

The wild claims of the illegal alien lobby have been proved wrong again.  They claimed that Arizona's economy would collapse without illegals, and the opposite happened.

USA Today April 24, 2012 by Alan Gomez

As of February, the state had added 42,6000 new, non-farm jobs over the previous year, and state revenues have increased 8.7% so far in 2012. The Arizona Office of Tourism found the state generated $17.7 billion in direct travel spending in 2010 — a 7.9% increase over the previous year. Brewer said there may have been a negative effect in the immediate aftermath of the law, but that the state has rebounded and the "Arizona comeback" is here.

"Businesses are coming. People are recruiting," Brewer said. "We should get a lot of kudos for what we've accomplished."
They claimed the same thing about Alabama, but the effect of Alabama's immigration law was nothing but good for Alabama's economy.

Slowly The Truth Comes Out

Accurate and telling information is slowly coming out concerning the U.S. Secret Service (USSS) incident in Columbia and it is quite instructive.  And apparently $800.00 a night is not the going rate for a lady of the evening in Cartagena, as I surmised.

WaPo April 22, 2012 by William Booth
Cartagena’s Night Life Spelled Trouble For Secret Service
Jimena said the prepago system was good business, for both client and service provider. To go to a room in the back of the Isis costs $100. To go to a hotel for the night would be $350, she explained, gratuities welcome.

Also of interest is that though the media is ripe with alleged details of all sorts of shenanigans by the USSS agents and officers, as well as members of the military, only one of the girls involved has been interviewed and she has disappeared. And, as pointed out earlier, did not know the agents were USSS.

The taxi drivers who work the clubs say any prostitutes who went with any of the American agents are hiding from the media and authorities. The alleged prostitute at the center of the case, who gave a single interview, to the New York Times, has left her home, her attorney said. Her picture was published in the New York Daily News from images taken from Facebook.

So, after some supposed investigation where the girls involved have not been interviewed, the USSS is taking personnel action?  Not a recipe for success, as one attorney has pointed out.

Even more important is that it appears that Dania Suarez may not have been completely honest in her interview with the NYT and entrapped a luckless USSS agent.

The latest phenomenon in Cartagena prostitution is the system called “prepago,” or pre-payment, and it is designed to avoid the very kind of early-morning fee dispute that investigators say occurred in a hallway of the Hotel Caribe on April 12, when a U.S. officer from a Secret Service advance team and the woman who spent the night with him argued, loudly, which eventually attracted hotel security and Colombian police and prompted a call to the U.S. Embassy.

It is clear she wasn't practicing prepago and the likelyhood that the agent, as he was in a night club and she was in undoubtedly something slinky, was just a woman of loose morals, like Sandra Fluke.  Being up front about things is an honest practice, as opposed to loudly demanding money in a hotel hallway.

But more important is that the USSS manager on site in Columbia was an apparent lesbian, not that there is anything wrong with that, with a racial grievance to grind against the white power structure.

Secret Service Scandal: Rising Supervisor Set Uncovering Of Misconduct In Motion
Paula Reid, the new Secret Service boss for the South American region, was in Cartagena preparing for the president’s visit when she received an urgent report: A prostitute, upset because she had not been paid by a Secret Service agent, had created a disturbance in a nearby hotel, knocking on doors and yelling in the hallways at daybreak.
With roughly 24 hours left until President Obama was due to arrive in the Colombian town, the 46-year-old Calvert County native instructed her staff to swoop into the Hotel Caribe at midday April 12 and inspect hotel registration records for all Secret Service employees. Reid, who had been staying at a nearby hotel, swiftly rounded up 11 agents and officers and ordered them out of the country. She alerted her superiors that she found early evidence of “egregious” misconduct involving prostitutes and set in motion the public uncovering of the most wide-reaching scandal at the agency in decades, according to government officials involved in the case.

All fine and dandy, a female Untouchable.  

Those who know Reid said the move revealed a steely resolve that has marked her 21-year rise through the ranks of an agency whose macho reputation has again come under scrutiny. Her story offers a counterbalance to critics who contend the Secret Service has been slow to clean up its act from the “Mad Men”-era days when some agents joked that their off-duty mantra was “wheels up, rings off.”
Not that Reid, an intensely private person, would admit it. In an interview, she offered few new details of her role, sticking to what colleagues described as her businesslike approach.

Until further in we get the Al Sharpton wannabe angle:

After growing up in Calvert County, Reid graduated from the University of Maryland. She joined the Secret Service at age 25 after visiting an NAACP job fair that sought to encourage minority applicants for law enforcement jobs.
According to a promotional interview years later that Reid granted to help recruit more female agents, she studied criminal justice in college and was debating whether to go to law school or become an investigator when she chose the service.
“I can’t imagine not being in law enforcement,” she said then, according to the interview, published in an online newsletter, Women for Hire.
Reid’s time in the agency has not been rosy throughout.
Ten years after entering the service at the bottom rung, she joined as a plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit that claimed the agency engaged in racial discrimination against African American personnel. She provided a declaration giving examples of ways black agents were relegated to lesser assignments. In the broader suit, some of the plaintiffs contended that senior managers had often used racial epithets to describe criminal suspects but were not reprimanded for their comments.
She eventually withdrew from the case, which continues but has since dwindled to a smaller number of plaintiffs. Still, as a black woman, Reid stood out in a mostly white-male agency.

An wracist ambalance chaser but not even a successful one, or perhaps they bought her off with undeserved promotions.  But she clearly has it in for the man, the white man. 

So, in the end, we have some randy soldiers and agents, nothing one does not expect from alpha males, trying to pick up girls at a nightclub and a large group drinking a couple of bottles of vodka.  

Usually white bull lesbians are good to work with in law enforcement, they think themselves just one of the guys and there is no sexual tension.  But bring in a three-fer, and all you have is trouble and grievance mongering.  And someone with an agenda, getting back at those who oppressed her.

Biggest Job Shop Under Investigation, Again

Unfortunately it is not for race and national origin discrimination. Infosys the largest Indian job shop and a company that uses more H-1B and L-1 non-immigrant employment visas is in trouble again.  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), is apparently investigating immigration violations surrounding the failure of Infosys to property document its employees on Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.  While mere failures to properly complete Form I-9 are not significant in and of themselves, what is important is that administrative reviews of said form usually leads to criminal investigations regarding immigration fraud.

Yahoo News/Reuters April 22, 2012

MUMBAI (Reuters) - Infosys, India's No. 2 software services exporter, is under scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for likely errors in employer eligibility documents of its staff working in the United States, the company said in a statement.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is reviewing the employer eligibility verifications on Form I-9, said Nasdaq-listed Infosys (INFY.O) in an April 18 filing on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

"In connection with this review, we have been advised that the DHS has found errors in a significant percentage of our Forms I-9 that the Department has reviewed," Infosys said in the SEC filing.

If the DHS concludes that the Forms I-9, used to verify the authorisation of employees to work in the U.S., contains errors it is likely to impose fines and penalties, the company said.

Case Against Secret Service Agents Falling Apart

Well, contrary to reports, no one has been fired yet concerning the incident in Columbia.  But it does appear the agents and officers are getting the Zimmerman treatment.

Yahoo News/Reuters April 19, 2012

Secret Service Agents Lawyer: "Trial By Mob" Wrong

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The attorney for some of the Secret Service agents under investigation in a scandal involving prostitutes in Colombia ahead of President Barack Obama's trip, said on Thursday a "trial by mob" was wrong. 
Lawrence Berger's comments to Reuters in a telephone interview came after the Washington Post identified the two supervisors involved as David Randall Chaney, 48, in the international programs division, who was allowed to retire, and Greg Stokes, assistant special agent in charge of the K9 division, who has been notified that he will be fired.
Berger, general counsel for the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, represents Chaney and Stokes, and took issue with news reports describing the three of the 11 agents who are leaving as being forced out.

"Nobody has been involuntarily separated from the agency as we speak today, nobody," Berger told Reuters.

"Mr. Stokes is vigorously defending himself from any of these accusations and will take full advantage of the administrative process that is available to him to do so," Berger said.

This is not surprising as the NYT article on the self-confessed escort hints that she demanded money the morning after as, although she was hot, no one would agree to pay $800 a night for her in a city where the going rate is much lower.  She also stated that she did not know they were Secret Service and said nothing about Obama.  She just thought they were rich Americans.

NYT April 18, 2012

The disagreement over her price — he offered $30 for services she thought they had agreed were worth more than 25 times that — set off a tense early morning quarrel in the hallway of the luxury hotel involving the woman, another prostitute, Colombian police officers arguing on the women’s behalf and American federal agents who tried but failed to keep the matter from escalating...

Sitting in her living room wearing a short jean skirt, high-heeled espadrilles and a spandex top with a plunging neckline, the prostitute described how she and another woman were approached by a group of American men at a discotheque. In an account consistent with the official version of events coming out of Washington, but could not be independently confirmed, she said the men bought a bottle of Absolut vodka for the table and when that was finished bought a second one.

They never told me they were with Obama,” she said, addressing published reports that some agents may have openly boasted to prostitutes that they were there protecting the president. “They were very discreet.”
It appears she agreed to go back to the hotel room, then according to her, sprung a "gift" issue:

There was a language gap between the woman, 24, who declined to give her full name, and the American man who sat beside her at the bar and eventually invited her to his room. She agreed, stopped on the way to buy condoms but told him he would have to give her a gift. He asked how much. Not knowing he worked for Mr. Obama but figuring he was a well-heeled foreigner, she said, she told him $800.
Of course, that might be Vegas or NYC prices, so I hear, but not appropriate or believable for Columbia.  But the key is that they met in a night club.  That, at best is false advertising, at worst a demand after the fact. 

It probably went like this, in the morning she demands an extrobinent amount, he is shocked, but to end the embarrassment, offers something more appropriate to get rid of her.  She is not so much insulted as concerned about her kickback to the hotel and her pimp, which she admits is $250.  Still awful high for Columbia, not that I have any first hand experience;  just what I read on the internet.

They knocked on the door but got no response. She threatened to call the police, but the man’s friend, who appeared on the scene, begged her not to, saying they did not want trouble. Finally, she said, she left to go home but came across a police officer stationed in the hallway, who called in an English-speaking colleague.

He accompanied her back to the room and the dispute escalated. Two other Americans from the club emerged from their rooms and stood guard in front of their friend’s locked door. The two Colombian officers tried to argue the woman’s case.

A hotel security officer arrived. Eventually, she lowered her demand to $250, which she said was the amount she has to pay the man who helps find her customers. Eager to resolve the matter fast, the American men eventually gave her a combination of dollars and pesos worth about $225, and she left.

This is supported by the fact that she had a curious web of backing from certain hotel staffers, notoriously corrupt police officers, and a taxi driver of all people. Perhaps her pimp?

Which brings us to the reported terminations.  Well, no one gets fired that fast in the Federal government.  There is an appeals process.  And, frankly, since there was no security leak, there is no case for termination.  Prostitution is apparently legal in Cartagena, and, as the story says, supported by the hotels.  No crime for the agents and officers to violate.  Not smart, but not a termination offense.

Unless, of course, they lied.  But since the Secret Service has not interviewed the girls involved, and have no direct evidence that she let herself be known at the outset as a prostitute in the first case, they have no case other than one that embarrassment was caused to the agency.  If they lied, then they have a bigger problem, but lying in internal affairs investigations is generally not punished by termination.  In fact it is a crime routinely ignored by U.S. Attorney's Offices and tolerated by many Federal agencies, like U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

So, much ado about nothing.  I predict that the Merit Services Protection Board (MSPB), or other reviewing organization, will not uphold any termination in this case abscent serious false statements by employees with previous serious disiplinary records, because, usually, the MSPB will not uphold a termination in a false statement case without the subject employee having a very checkered disiplinary history.

And, as to the Secret Service, they also have a reputation for not terminating those who make false statements.  The USSS has  a reputation for an agency of hard partiers and a Code Blue attittude to minor misconduct.  They just don't care.  It's a brotherhood born in the adversity of long, relentless hours on the job.  Unless the misconduct is serious, and the officer or agent in question does not have a "rabbi," there is not much disipline, especially if it concerns partying.

Now, if there was a really security breech, yeah, they would take action, but this appears to be an inconcieved reaction to bad PR.  Sort of like Zimmerman, but with a little more there there than with Zimmerman, who was at least completely innocent of anything.

Hugh Hewitt Channels Pontius Pilote

But at least Pontius Pilote publicly acknowledged that Jesus of Nazareth was innocent.  In an interview of Roger L. Simon of PJ Media, Hugh Hewitt, RINO, went on an unhinged attack on George Zimmerman.  Basically Hewitt stated that Zimmerman could not be other than found guilty based solely on the anticipated rioting by blacks.  (Sorry, no link as for some reason this particular episode of his show did not have a transcript posted and you have to pay for a podcast.)  Hewitt went further, pronouncing Zimmerman guilty based on factual and legal errors surrounding the false claim that the Sanford Police Department dispatcher's command to Zimmerman to stop following Martin.

First, there was no command from the dispatcher.  The dispatcher merely told Zimmerman that they did not need him to be following Martin.  In any event Martin easily outdistanced Zimmerman, who lost sight of Martin.  Zimmerman, after loosing sight of Martin, agreed with the dispatcher and stopped following Martin, then went to find an address to relay to the responding officers so they could find him.  It was not until after Zimmerman was heading back to his vehicle that he was confronted and attacked by Martin.  But in the end, a police dispatcher has no legal authority to instruct anyone on anything.

One would think that a practicing attorney would know that, one would think that a professor at a law school would know that, and one would think that a supposed Christian, I guess "Christian" only in the sense that Barak Hussein Obama, Al Sharpton, and Jesse "Hymie Town" Jackson are Christians, would realize that sacrificing a man at the demand of a mob was a sin, a major sin, a sin that was at the center of the Crucifixion of Hewitt's supposed Savior.  But I guess that Hewitt has just not internalized the lessons of Calvary.  But one would think that an officer of the court would realize that we don't convict people of crimes to assuage the mob.  To do so would end our Republic as we know it.  But that is fine with Hewitt, who only wants to be the respectable looser, the tax collector for the welfare state, to be a gelded showman, profiting off opposition to the regime, but in reality cooperating with the radical left, as exemplefied by the campaign he led against Tom Tancredo's run for governor of Colorado.

Also of interest is Hewitt's statement that he will not cover the Zimmerman issue, other than to "announce" whatever upcoming verdict.  Which tells us that the reality of black crime and the railroading of Zimmerman, the most important issue of the day, will be ignored by someone who claims to cover the issues.  It was also interesting to listen to Simon's non-response to Hewitt.  He sounded incredibly uncomfortable, especially given that PJ Media recently posted a significant attack on the Zimmerman Affidavit from a gun-nut who previously took the Hugh Hewitt stance that Zimmerman was guilty until proven innocent.

So, it looks like the internet conservatives are soon to replace the lickspittles like Hewitt and Rich Lowry in the RINO MSM, as observed by Hunter Wallace at Occidental Dissent.

The Best Statement On The Upcoming Lynching

Without any doubt Sultan Knish has the best analysis of the Zimmerman Case.  As Ben Franklin warned, we either hang together or most assuredly we will all be hanged separately.

Sultan Knish April 15, 2012

Zimmerman had decorated his flyers and website with the famous quotation attributed to Edmund Burke, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing." His activities reveal a man who took those words to heart, who put his time, money and safety on the line to become one of those good men who do something. But the problem was that Zimmerman had been reading Burke, when he should have been reading Kafka.

"Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything wrong, he was arrested." That is the famous opening sentence to Kafka's novel, "The Trial", words that have far more to do with the way we live now.

George Zimmerman is not on trial because he shot a black teenager during a scuffle. It's not the facts of the case that brought him here. It's his name. Had his last name been Pereira, none of this would have gone anywhere. And it's not the name alone, it's that in this time and place lynching him will help make the political fortunes of everyone from the man in the White House to his cheerful smiling prosecutor who is already counting her campaign cash and book deals.
Zimmerman with his book of quotations from the great thinkers of history, a man who clearly believes in the old fashioned virtues, is particularly ill-equipped to understand what is being done to him and why. The quotation that he plastered on flyers while investigating the beating of a homeless black man and on his own website, is more apt than he realizes.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is indeed that good men do nothing, but as a corollary to it, those are exactly the sort of men that evil will go after. It does no good to read Burke quotations to a Kardashian society which makes its determinations not on truth or justice, but on its omnipresent need for entertainment. Trying to reason with it only makes it angrier. Talking about virtues and decency to people who have none either confuses them or infuriates those few who understand the concept in some distant way.

Read it all.  The battle is joined, the enemy has a plan, the Great Eye has placed its gaze on a target.  Don't say you weren't warned.  We now face a massive racial rioting if a courageous judge dismisses the empy affidavit or the Black Marias will come for each of us in turn.  Be warned.

Another Twist On Naked Officials, Anti-Americanism, And Immigration

There is an immigration twist to the internecine power struggle in the Chinese Communist Party.  The rabid, Maoist inspired, anti-American faction of the CCP is in a struggle with another major faction of the Party that is only slightly less anti-American.  Both sides are corrupt in the Chinese tradition, but it appears that the leader of the more radically anti-American faction, Bo Xilai, now former head of the Chungking (Chongqing) party apparatus and one-time candidate for the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau (Politbureau) of the CCP and now on the outs, has a son, Bo Guagua, a second generation princeling, in the United States as a student.

WaPo April 15, 2012 by Associated Press

Chinese authorities last week said Heywood previously had a close business relationship with Gu and the couple’s son, Bo Guagua, who attended schools in Britain, but that the ties had recently soured.
Bo Guagua’s whereabouts are not known, after British media reported over the weekend that he had been escorted from his apartment near Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The FBI declined comment, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services referred queries to the State Department. Harvard police said its officers are not providing security for Bo, and the university did not comment.
So, the son of one of China's most rabid Maoist radicals, besides being corrupt as any Imperial official, also sends his son to Harvard, where John Kerry and Barak Hussein Obama attended.  It appears that the one-time Christian divinity school is the institution of choice for naked officials, Demoncrat 1%ers, and Islamists.

It also appears that the State Department is accomodating not only anti-American officials with visas for their families, but abetting corruption by allowing the stolen monies to be laundered to American educational institutions.  Is no one reviewing the decisions by Consular Officers?  Is accomodating anti-Americanism official DOS policy?  Under Hillary! and given the Billyjeff Bentpecker China connection, it is not surprising.

Plan B

Now that the paucity of the evidence for the widely touted claim that George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin is out and widely analyzed, the radical left is retreating to their prepared, go-to, defensive position:  The whole plan all along in the Zimmerman indictment was to deliberately throw the investigation and by doing so cause black people to riot, reinforcing the position of the Republican Party of Florida, and, presumably, Mittens as well.

A leftist law blog posted an examination of the Zimmerman Affidavit in support of probable cause that Murder in the 2nd occured and the reaction of leftist readers was that it was all a conspiracy to manipulate blacks into rioting.  The article will not be addressed other than it is in agreement with most in that the affidavit was junk law and junk law enforcement.  The comments are interesting though for their conspiracy theories and obviously racist attitude about blacks; that blacks so lack self-control they will riot at the drop of a hat.

i found it very interesting to follow the analysis of a defense lawyer thru a charge para by para.

my suspicion is and has been that any prosecution of zimmerman will have been set up to fail due to the “realities” of a grotesqely right-wing political establishment in florida.

see this article, for example:

Is the repug-appoited attorney setting the case up for a fail? Do the repugs want a “Not Guilty” verdict, which could lead to riots the way the Rodney King verdict did? Repugs seem to really, really love it when minorities riot or even speak in an angry way. It reassures the bigots that they’re correct in their bigotry. And it makes for great Live TV.

I think the case of Trayvon Martin is about much more than just racial prejudice.

It is resonating with Americans of all stripes because clearly some are above the law while most of us ordinary folks are not – and we’re stuck paying the taxes too. Zimmerman was above, and Martin below – and that was further sanctioned by the cops who essentially backed Zimmerman.

Stay tuned for riots.  The left wants and expects them.  All part of the conspiracy by the Stupid Party.  LOL.  Why then did McCain leave Jeremiah Wright out of the campaign?

Obama Regime War On Whites Continues

White collar workers that is, who, by the way, are predominently white, as are gun owners in Florida and police officers in Cambridge, MA. Here we have white collar workers as a stand in for white people in general.  We all know that Barak Hussein Obama only cares for people who look like him and he has a deep seated hatred of whites, whether they be white Cambridge police officers or white Hispanics from Florida.  But Obama's hatred extends to all employed white Americans.  We know the deep seated hatred for working class whites who cling to their God and guns, but the Obama Regime war on whites extends to the upper middle-class educated workers, supposedly one of the few white groups to support him.  But this is a group of white college graduates not with a useless degree in sociology or Marxism Studies, but engineers. 

To wit we have another case of the Obama Regime violating the law in order to punish whites.  The Regime has ordered U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to allow Boeing to continue its immigration fraud of using alien engineers to perform work in the United States on a B-1 business visitor visa.  Sometime ago CBP broke up a Boeing sponsored alien smuggling operation that brought Russian engineers to the United States to perform day-to-day labor in the United States, replacing white-collar educated Americans and simultaneously driving down wages.  Talk about a War on Men, American men.  Although I do understand there are some female engineers at Boeing, so this is part of the Demoncrat War on Women as well.  Just ask Mittens' wife. 

This blog reported the courageous action by CBP to stand up to the well connected alien smugglers and bad corporate citizen, but it was only a matter of time before Boeing got what they wanted.  Cheap illegal alien labor.  Perhaps part of the settlement of the NLRB issue?

Seattle Times April 14, 2012 by Dominic Gates

 Meanwhile, the policy remains. CBP spokesman Mike Milne said the agency hasn't changed border-control procedures since the October incident, and neither he nor Boeing would comment on their discussions to resolve the matter.

Yet the outcome is that Russian engineers are again flowing unimpeded through Sea-Tac to work — or not to work — in Everett.

Data that SPEEA gets from Boeing show about 250 Russian contract engineers have entered the country at Boeing's invitation since the October incident.

But at least for now, the number here is smaller than it had been. According to SPEEA's data, the Russian contractor contingent in Everett in mid-March numbered 75 engineers, down from 190 in September.
Of course, the alleged investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of Boeing for aliens smuggling and visa fraud was a farce.  In an unprecendented move, the investigating ICE Special Agent was allowed to be interviewed.  That violates ICE policy of having all comments on investigations come from either the press officer or the Special Agent in Charge.

A federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigation into the Sea-Tac incident found no fault with either the passport-control officials or Boeing.

Adam Anderson, the ICE special agent who conducted the investigation, said in an interview that based on what the CPB agents were told, "the visas were improper at the time" and so "the turn-backs, by the sheer face value of them, were appropriate."

He characterized the airport confrontation as "a communications error between what CBP's officers were hearing and what the Russian workers were saying," largely due to "cultural differences."

On the other hand, Anderson said the ICE investigation also exonerated the company, finding "Boeing did nothing wrong."
Which is absurd.  If the refusal of the entry of the Russian engineers was valid, then Boeing is guilty of smuggling because the deported Russian engineers admitted under oath that they were instructed to lie to CBP officers at the airport.  They admitted not only lying but that their intention was to perform work in the United States in violation of the laws of the United States.  There was a conspiracy between Boeing and their overseas employees to violate American immigration law.  Of course, the Regime is not interested in enforcing immigration laws, just as it is not interested in enforcing DOMA.

Furthermore, if the problem was a communication error based on cultural differences, then the deportations were not lawful.  You can't have it both ways.  It is impossible.  It is either one or the other.  Either the Russian engineers were committing fraud with the assistance of Boeing or they weren't.  There  is no cultural difference excuse for immigration fraud.  And we all know the culture of lies and contempt for the rule of law that exists in Russia.  You cannot explain away that cultural diffence.

But the purpose of the Obama Regime is electing a new people and if American engineers at Boeing and other companies have to be sacrified for the Obama Revolution, then that is the cost of the Obama Revolution, just as it is waging war on James Crowley and George Zimmerman.

NRO Girlieman Channels Andrey Vyshinsky

David French, the new, gay, version of Andrey Vysinsky at NRO, states that the affidavit empty of probable cause that a specific crime had been committed is sufficient for an arrest.  And he even claims that in all such cases an arrest is routine.

Of course, he sites no actual evidence.  In fact the only statement of witnesses of any sort mentioned in the affidavit, aside from the irrelevant suggestion from a police dispatcher with no lawful authority, is the testimony of Martin's mother, who was not present at the scene of the crime. And the only claim there is that some, but not all, of the crys for help were from Martin.  Of course Martin's father has contradicted this claim.  He could not identify his son as utering the crys for help.  And, of course, real eye-witnesses have stated Zimmerman was the one crying out for help as Martin beat him.

But to Comrade Vyshinsky facts are not evidence, it is the political purpose of prosecution that is important, just as it is to Comrade Gallagher.

NRO April 13, 2012 by David French

When an armed man shoots an unarmed man, unless there are compelling facts to the contrary, charges are expected and routine. As I’ve watched this case unfold and heard arguments pro and con, I think there’s probable cause for an arrest (and it’s really not close). Whether there’s proof sufficient for conviction will be determined when we see the state’s case. As of today, we’ve just peeked under the curtain.
There are compelling facts that Zimmerman was the victim of Martin's hatefilled rage, especially given Martin's bragging on his assault on a bus driver, but the facts from the eye-witnesses and  Zimmerman's injuries are more than compeling, they vindicate Zimmerman completely. 

However, NRO is not lost.  Andy McCarthy and John Lott give French a legal beatdown.  They agree with Alan Dershowitz that there is no probable cause in the affidavit.  That it is nothing more than a political document from an ambitious prosecutor undoubtedly running as we speak for Attorney General.  But we know that she is going the same way of a former Florida governor.

Lott drills down the import asking where is the beef or the Lenin question Who Will Do What To Whom:

NRO April 13, 2012 by John Lott

Even if everything in the affidavit is correct, it does not even begin to deal with the most crucial question: Who attacked whom? Even if it is true that “Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued,” there may have been no wrongdoing on Zimmerman’s part. “Confronted” does not mean “provoked” or “assaulted.” It could simply mean that Zimmerman followed Martin and asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood. Surely Zimmerman had the right to investigate a strange person in his neighborhood. The police operator’s advice that “we don’t need you to do that” was merely suggestive, not an order to stop. Indeed, the police had no authority to give Zimmerman such an order.

And he saw what I saw on the Grand Jury issue.  The ugliest woman in the world avoided the Grand Jury because she has no case. 

Angela Corey, the special prosecutor who filed charges, claimed multiple times on Wednesday that the prosecutors “are seekers of the truth.” In our legal system, grand juries can sometimes provide a check on prosecutors who indict based on political pressure or the desire to seek the limelight. It is no surprise that Corey avoided the grand jury.

As in my experience, a Grand Jury will indict a ham sandwich, but only when you spoon feed the Grand Jurors the evidence, and a lot of it.  Grand Jurors are generally slow and not quick on the uptake.  It takes much to convince them.  And rightly so.  A man's life is at stake.  And justice is not a show trial.

And McCarthy redeems himself with this observation on Corey:

NRO March 13, 2012 by Andy McCarthy

If I were a cynic, I’d say that an ambitious special prosecutor — exploiting the rabble-rousing of the U.S. attorney general and the racial grievance industry — filed an exceedingly serious charge for which she lacks evidence, second degree murder, in order to bask in the mob’s adulation while pressuring Zimmerman to plead guilty to a lesser charge, manslaughter, on which the special prosecutor runs a high risk of losing if Zimmerman forces a trial. So I’m sure glad I’m not a cynic.
So is there hope for NRO?  Will Girlieman Rich Lowry fire McCarthy and Lott?  Time will tell.  Probably not now, but their days are numbered.  That little shit can't stand people smarter than he is or stands up to Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Barak Hussein Obama.

Slow Walking The Onyango Obama Non-Deportation

Onyango Obama, the illegal alien uncle of Barak Hussein Obama, appeared at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) office.  Despite his outstanding Order of Removal, he was not taken into custody, but released to illegally appeal the previous removal order.

The Boston Herald April 13, 2012 by John Zaremba

President Obama’s illegal-alien uncle met yesterday with federal immigration officials, who say they’re pressing ahead with his deportation as he prepares his legal fight to stay in the country.

Onyango Obama, 67, of Framingham will be required to report regularly to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials after their meeting at an undisclosed location, the agency said in a statement.

“ICE met with Mr. Onyango and his attorney today,” ICE spokesman Brian Hale said in a statement yesterday, referring to the president’s uncle by the last name the agency has on file for him. “Pursuant to this meeting, Mr. Onyango will be required to check in regularly with immigration officials pending his removal. Absent a change in his immigration status or any related court proceedings, Mr. Onyango will be required to report to ICE in the coming weeks in order to effectuate his departure from the United States.”
Other illegal aliens who have outstanding removal orders are routinely arrested.  They are then removed expiditiously.  They are not authorized by law to have any appeal process, nor allowed to remain free to "effectuate his departure."  While Obama is supposed to be obtaining an Kenyan passport so he can be removed, but what ICE is doing is slow walking the removal, encouraging him to file with the Executive Office for Immigration Review and obtain a stay of the removal so the issue can be taken off ICE ERO's back.  They don't want to deport Obama any more than they wanted to deport Barak Hussein Obama's aunt, Zeituni Polly Onyango, whom they allowed to illegally petition to the EOIR for a new hearing at which the hearing officer illegally granted Auntie Zeituni political asylum based on a leak from ICE that stated ICE was not deporting Auntie.

Chekists At NRO And An Empty Affidavit Of Probable Cause

Alan Dershowitz, renown left-wing lawyer, has reviewed the affidavit in support probable cause for the charge of  murder in the 2nd for George Zimmerman.  He states unequivocally that there is no evidence presented for the charge and that the prosecutor is deliberately over-charging in an effort to obtain a plea deal.

MSNBC via Mediaite April 12, 2012
Harvard Prof. Alan Dershowitz: Zimmerman Arrest Affidavit ‘Irresponsible And Unethical’

Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball where fill-in host Michel Smerconish asked him his opinions of the arrest warrant issued and carried out for alleged Trayvon Martin murderer, George Zimmerman. Dershowitz called the affidavit justifying Zimmerman’s arrest “not only thin, it’s irresponsible.” He went on to criticize the decision to charge Zimmerman for second degree murder by special prosecutor Angela Cory as being politically motivated.
“You’ve seen the affidavit of probable cause. What do you make of it,” Smerconish asked. “It won’t suffice,” Dershowitz replied without hesitation.
“Most affidavits of probable cause are very thin. This is so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge,” Dershowitz said. “There’s simply nothing in there that would justify second degree murder.”
Dershowitz said that the elements that would constitute that crime are non-existent in the affidavit. “It’s not only thin, it’s irresponsible,” said Dershowitz.
Dershowitz went on to strongly criticize Cory’s decision to move forward with the case against Zimmerman. “I think what you have here is an elected public official who made a campaign speech last night for reelection when she gave her presentation and overcharged. This case will not – if the evidence is no stronger than what appears in the probable cause affidavit – this case will result in an acquittal.”
Smerconish identified the total lack of any mention of the supposed fight that occurred between Martin and Zimmerman prior to Martin being shot. He said he was disappointed that he did not see any mention of that conflict that led to Martin’s murder.
“But it’s worse than that,” said Dershowitz. “It’s irresponsible and unethical in not including material that favors the defendant.”
“This affidavit does not even make it to probable cause,” Dershowitz concluded. “everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense. Everything.”

As someone who has written a few affidavits in support of probable cause for arrest warrants and search warrants, it is clear there is no evidence of any crime in the affidavit.  In fact, the affiants, supposedly experienced investigators, make certain conclusions in the affidavit unsupported by facts.  They claim that Martin was profiled and committing no crime.  They have no idea what Martin was doing wandering between houses, he certainly could have been engaged in planning his next burglary.  They also accuse Zimmerman of profiling, a non-existent crime in the State of Florida. In fact they accuse him of a thought crime, not liking black people.  

If a police officer had seen Martin walking between the houses he would have been justified in stopping Martin under Terry v. Ohio.  Martin was suspicious, and given his criminal history, ripe for questioning by police.  A police officer only needs reasonable suspicion based on articulable facts.  Burglaries in the area, hooded figure walking between houses, typical behavior of burglars.  Sufficient for a stop.  And there ain't no law against talking to someone in public.

One hopes that this affidavit deplete of evidence will earn both a civil suit from Zimmerman and criminal prosecution for perjury.  Perhaps even a Federal criminal prosecution under the Mittens Administration for civil rights violations.

Worse though is the Felix Dzerzhinsky of NRO, Maggie Gallagher, who previously called for Zimmerman's arrest only to assuage the unjustified anger of supposed middle-class blacks.

Townhall March 5, 2012 by Maggie Gallagher
Arrest George Zimmerman

The other thing we can know for sure is that this case has exploded in the media in part because it touches a raw nerve for every African-American in this country, but perhaps most especially African-American middle-class parents. Can they protect their sons? Will the law stand with them in this process?
If the answer is "no," then no African-American family in this country, however successful, however law-abiding, can feel safe.
If we don't empathize with this reaction on the part of black parents, we cannot in our turn be trusted or ask them to trust the legal process.
What we owe Trayvon and his grieving parents, and every other anxious parent in this case, is the truth.
Was it murder? Or justifiable self-defense?
That depends on uncovering what actually happened that night. We have only one process for discovering that truth, and it is the legal process. It is imperfect. But the last few weeks, if they have proven anything, have proven this: As a mechanism for uncovering truth and doing justice, trial by jury is infinitely superior to the barbaric ordeal of trial by media.

No, jury trials are for those who have been charged with a crime based on probable cause.  We do not arrest people to assuage the anger of the perpetually outraged, especially racist hate mongers like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, and Barak Hussein Obama.  Threats of rioting are not probable cause that George Zimmerman committed a crime.

And the Chekist cheers an arrest that even a leftist like Alan Dershowitz described as politically motivated and empty of any evidence supporting probable cause.

NRO April 12, 2012 by Maggie Gallagher

Indicting George Zimmerman

This is good news for our country. As I wrote in my column on this last week, trial by jury has to be better at uncovering truth than the barbaric ordeal of trial by media.

Since there is no evidence that Zimmerman committed a crime, as evidenced by an empty probable cause affidavit, there is nothing for a jury to decide.  We do not first arrest, then find out the facts.  The facts must be there first.  Perhaps Gallagher should review the 5th Amendment:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger;

Arresting and charging someone to assuage those threatening riots is not allowed.  One needs evidence first before charges may be brought.

A better way for black parents to protect their sons would to not get divorced, not allow their children to attack bus drivers, burglarize homes, and use or deal drugs.  Another good idea would to loose the thug attitude, and have a real talk with their children about respect for others, not fill their heads with the lies about racism directed against blacks.  Trayvon Martin most likely internalized the Al Sharpton racist ideology, but he expressed that hate to an armed white Hispanic and tried to give him a beat down.  Smooth move Ex-lax, next time don't bring your fists to a gun fight.  The real killer of Trayvon Martin were his parents who refused to supervise or discipline this young thug for his misbehavior, criminal activity, and huge chip on his shoulder concerning the alleged crimes of the white man in our society.  Much like Erik Scott's girlfriend and his parents who refused to act to stop Scott's self-destructive downward spiral of abuse of prescription pain medication.  Enablers never solve a problem, they make it worse.

It is also now clear why the ugly bitch of a prosecutor did not want to go to a Grand Jury.  I know prosecutors who claim that they could get a Grand Jury to indict a ham sandwich, but that is mostly a comment on the intelligence of Grand Jurors.  Not the brightest bunch.  But what they mean is that they don't bring cases to the Grand Jury without overwhelming evidence, not just enough for probable cause, but enough to convict.  That is why ham sandwiches get indicted, they are guilty, and the evidence is overwhelming.  The evidence in this case, as admitted by Comrade Gallagher, is just not there.  This indictment is all about assuaging a bunch of racists who threaten to riot if an innocent man is not arrested.

Gun Nuts Who Abandoned George Zimmerman Lose A Big One

The family of Erik Scott, crazed drug addict, have dropped the lawsuit against the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.  The facts were just too much.  Crazed gun nut Mike McDaniel who tried to make Scott the Rosa Parks of the concealed carry movement, is in denial.

Las Vegas Review Journal March 13, 2012
Costco Shooting Victim's Family Drops Lawsuit Against Las Vegas Police

Family members of Erik Scott, who was shot and killed by officers outside a Costco store in 2010, dropped their lawsuit against the Metropolitan Police Department on Tuesday, ending one of the most controversial chapters in the agency's history.
The lawsuit wasn't strong enough to withstand the appeals process, family members said.
"It's not the slam-dunk case that everybody thought it was when we started," said Bill Scott, Erik Scott's father. "If there was a different appeals court involved, I think we could have pressed ahead."
The family also was going up against stiff resistance from Las Vegas police. Sheriff Doug Gillespie said Tuesday that he would not settle the case.
"No matter how you look at it, the Scott family lost a loved one," he said. "I, as a sheriff, understand that the best I can. But I also have to support the process and support our officers when they make appropriate decisions."
The news surprised Chris Collins, executive director of the Las Vegas Police Protective Association, which represents roughly 2,800 officers, including the three officers involved in Scott's shooting.
"They (Scott's family) kept telling people they had a case and they were never going to let it go," Collins said. "They let it go. ... Someone convinced them otherwise."
Bill Scott said they didn't drop the case because they didn't believe in it.
"I believe, as do many, that Erik was murdered, crime scene corrupted, critical evidence destroyed," he said.

What is strange is that the family is claiming that "qualified immunity" is the reason that they believe that their case will fail.  Strange because qualified immunity protects only the involved officer personally, it does not protect the employing government agency.  Whether the officers involved were held personally liable is not relevant for the success of a lawsuit, as their employer is still liable.

Basically the family realized that without the non-existent video of their version of events, they could not win because the eye-witness testimony would show that Scott did not comply with the officers commands and he attempted to draw his weapon, while under the influence of what the coroner described as a lethal level of a cocktail of fraudulently obtained prescription pain killers.  The fact that his fiance admitted to police that Scott was drawing his weapon when commanded by the police officers not to was the death knell for the lawsuit.

What is sad is that the family has not come to realize their responsibility in this tragedy by allowing their son to continue a life of drug addiction and they did nothing about it.  Now they are spinning conspiracy theories worthy of the claims of the radical left that Lee Harvey Oswald, communist, did not kill JFK.

According to the family, the LVMPD, the United States Secret Service and Costco are involved in some gigantic conspiracy to hide non-existent video tape of the shooting.  It is even more sad that the gun nuts encourage this departure from reality.  Note that some in the 2nd Amendment rights world realized their mistake and backed off from supporting Scott.  

Incredibly Ugly Woman Makes Incredibly Ugly Decision

Angela Corey, a RINO, appointed by a spineless RINO governor has indicted George Zimmerman for Murder in the Second.  The decision was of course baseless and without foundation in either the law or the facts.  This monstrocity of a woman, who's hideous visage conceals an even more hideous heart.

She thinks she will ride this to the Attorney General's office.  Think again. Like Arlen Specter, your hideous face and your evil actions will end your political career.  Remember, blacks even abandoned the First Black President, Bill Clinton and Hillary! for Barak Hussein Obama.  Do you seriously think they will vote for you over a Demoncrat?  Good riddance to you.  You are not long for the political world.

Here's Why We Have 11 Million Illegal Aliens

We are wasting $2.3 billion in Homeland Security grants to the States.  Tennessee got $192 and they bought toys for the local police, most used in non-terrorism cases as there were no cases of terrorism in Tennessee last year.

Homeland Security News Wire  April 11, 2012
DHS Cuts Grants To States, Emphasizes Maintenance
Over the past few years, DHS has been cutting funding for grants to state and emergency response agencies; the billions of dollars given to states after 2011 have been used to buy many pieces of first-response and law-enforcement equipment, and DHS now emphasizes the maintenance of that equipment.
Over the past few years, DHS has been cutting funding for grants to state and emergency response agencies. The budget for fiscal year 2012 intended for state and local grants has been reduced to $2,374,681,000. This is a cut of $846,177,830 from the FY 2011 budget of $3,220,858,830. Similar levels of reductions have been imposed by state governments.
These cuts impose difficulties for states and municipalities that have come to rely on these grants for equipment acquisition, upgrade, and maintenance.
The Tennesseean reports on the impact in one such state, Tennessee.
DHS had granted $192 million to Tennessee for fighting terrorism, and the money was used for the acquisition of r remote-controlled bomb-handling robots; special equipment for collapsed building rescues; high-tech surveillance cameras; all sorts of boots, masks, and body armor; and food for police dogs. There was even a training seminar about how to apply for more money.

ICE claims it has the money for only 400,000 deportations a year, a target it never meets.  But what if ICE had $192 million more, much less $2.3 billion more?  How many illegal aliens could it deport?  How many terrorists could it deport?  Why all of them.  That would pay for a lot of agents and officers.  And in one or two years all the illegal aliens would be gone.  Think of that, in two years the immigration problem solved, all instead of Bearcats, boots, masks, and dog food.  Items that are not protecting the homeland, but at most used in routine police duties.  Sounds like a bargain.

ICE Gets Criminal Conviction Unrelated To Immigration Or Customs

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) continues to run away from enforcing immigration and customs laws.  It has decided that it will enforce laws against child molestation and child pornography, something entirely outside the immigration and customs function.  In fact, the FBI exists to enforce inter-state crimes involving child molestation and child pornography.  And since actual child molestion occurs within a State, it is the proper jurisdiction of local and State law enforcement.

Boston Globe April 4, 2012

A Boston doctor is beginning a 21-year federal prison sentence for traveling to Alaska with a plan to have sex with a 5-year-old boy, federal law enforcement officials said today.

John Mark Felton, 48, was sentenced Friday in Alaska. A citizen of the United Kingdom, Felton may pursue transfer to a UK prison pursuant to a treaty between the United States and United Kingdom, officials said.

Felton’s arrest came after an investigation by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations directorate, ICE said today in a statement.

Felton traveled to Alaska, believing that he had arranged with a man over the Internet to have sex with the man’s grandson. The “grandfather” was actually a Homeland Security Investigations agent, ICE said.

So, why wasn't Felton arrested by the Boston Police Department or the Anchorage Police Department? There are tens of thousands of illegal aliens and drug smugglers working out of Massechusetts and Alaska, but ICE decided that it wanted to work child porn and child molestation cases that are properly the responsibility of local law enforcement or the FBI.

While Felton appears to be a legal alien, ICE is as we speak ignorning other legal and illegal alien criminals, especially gangbangers throughout this country. To wit Edwin Ramos, who recently testified in his own defense in his murder trial, but remember Ramos, an MS-13 gang member and illegal alien, was released by ICE to commit the horrible murders he is on trial for. And MS-13, as well as other illegal alien gangs, are free to roam not only California, but Alaska and Massechusetts with no interference from HSI.

ICE should concentrate on its core mission, the detection and removal of illegal aliens as well as the investigation of the smuggling of contraband into the United States. If HSI agents want to investigate child porn they should join a local police department or the FBI.
