Kwok Cheung Chow, AKA Shrimp Boy, AKA Raymond Chow, notorious Chinatown gangster and un-deported criminal alien, was convicted again, this time in a 162 count Federal indictment including murder. This indictment included a number of fellow immigrants, including Leland Yee, notorious leftist and gun control supporter. [Raymond 'Shrimp Boy' Chow Found Guilty Of 162 Counts In Massive Corruption Case, by Hailey Branson-Potts, Los Angeles Times, January 8, 2016].
Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow was convicted Friday of racketeering, murder and other charges in a sprawling corruption case that rocked San Francisco’s Chinatown and the state’s political establishment.
A federal jury found Chow, 56, guilty on all 162 counts after two days of deliberations, said Abraham Simmons, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in San Francisco.
The so-called dragonhead of a Chinatown fraternal organization went on trial in November after a lengthy investigation that cost millions in taxpayer dollars and swept up numerous people, including former Democratic state Sen. Leland Yee, who pleaded guilty to racketeering in July. A half-dozen of Chow’s co-defendants pleaded guilty in the case in September.
Note how the reporter [contact her here] avoided using Chow's real name, Kwok Cheung Chow, to avoid letting her readers know that he was an immigrant, much less an immigrant who should have been deported in 1985.
Criminal Alien Kwok Cheung Chow
AKA Shrimp Boy
The fact that he was not deported then is the real story, and it is one of bipartisan corruption and Cultural Marxism. Chow has a long criminal history:
Chow's first conviction was in 1978, for robbery in Chinatown, San Francisco. Chow received an 11-year sentence, of which he served 7 years and 4 months. He was released in 1985. In 1986, Chow was charged with 28 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, attempted murder, mayhem, and illegal possession of a firearm. He served three years in prison and was released in 1989. In 1992 Chow was arrested for racketeering, later separated into two separate trials. The first was for illegal gun sales and the second was for prostitution, drugs and money laundering. Convicted in 1995, Chow was sentenced to 24 years. When Peter Chong was captured, Chow became an informant, turned informer on his old boss, testifying against him in exchange for a reduced sentence. He was released from prison in 2003. In 1996, Chow was tried again for racketeering, but the indictment was dismissed.
So, in 1985, during the Reagan Administration, Chow was released, but not deported by the then Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). And this has to do with the well known connection between the then District Director for the INS in their San Francisco District, David Ilchert, and Chinese business leaders in San Francisco, usually represented by the Consolidated Chinese Benevolent Association, also known as the Six Companies. The Six Companies have a sometime close beneficial relationship with Chinese organized crime in San Francisco and Asia, generally know as the Tongs, but also had conflict with the Tongs, as the Six Companies and middle class Chinese Americans were the victims of Tong crime. To complicate things, the Tongs had an on again/off again war with lower level Chinese street gangs, like the Joe Boys and the Wo Hop To, who also provided soldiers and recruits for the Tongs. The Tongs originated as political resistance by southern Chinese to the Manchu conquest, but evolved into organized crime groups that extended their reach any where Chinese migrated. The Six Companies was well known as well for their close relationship with the Republican Party and their access was provided by financial contributions. Basically, the Six Companies bought access to political influence.
And that political influence bought access to political appointees or semi-political appointees, like the then District Director David Ilchert. It was well known in the INS of the late 80s and early 90s that Ilchert was close with Chinatown notables, despite the rising faction of Democrat operatives and Marxists led by illegal alien and Red Chinese agent Rose Pak. For the record, INS District Directors are not political appointees confirmed by the Senate, but then promoted from within the INS, but were politically screened at the highest level, at that time by the Attorney General. The position was highly political, but technically a civil service position in the General Schedule, not a Senior Executive Service or political appointee, but treated as so.
Pak led the fight to protect Chow, first by using Republican appointee Ilchert, not only in 1985, but in 1989, after Chow was released on a subsequent conviction. So twice, a corrupt Republican appointee failed to deport a criminal alien.
Chow was soon arrested again in 1992, then convicted in 1995, and released 2003, well before his 24 year sentence had concluded. He was released due to demands from the Chinese "community," again led by Pak, and the Bush Administration and their appointed U.S. Attorney, Kevin Ryan, capitulated to the demands based on the claim that Chow was "reformed." He was, of course, not deported. Nor was Chow deported under the Obama Regime, with their reason for not deporting Chow obvious, sympathy for criminal aliens of color and a desire to destroy the historic American nation.
In the end though, Chow will be sentenced to life in prison at taxpayer expense, three hots and a cot for life, despite a murder conviction where the death penalty was applicable. Chow led a life a long life of crime in the United States, and this latest conviction cost millions. This is another cost of immigration, crime and corruption on a massive scale. Not something Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush like to talk about.
