Thanks Barack… ‘Dreamer’ Accused Of Multiple Murders Was Spared Deportation By Obama

Gang Member Facing Murder Charges Was Spared Deportation Under Obama Program – Fox News

.

.
The Obama administration has admitted that an illegal immigrant and known gang member – who recently was charged in the murders of four people – was allowed to remain in the United States under President Obama’s executive actions.

Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez was allowed in August 2013 to remain in the U.S., following his request about seven months earlier to stay under the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez.

Rodriquez acknowledged in a letter to a top Republican senator that Rangel-Hernandez’s application was approved, even though a federal crime database indicated he was a “known gang member.”

“Based on the standard procedures and protocols in place at the time, the DACA request and related employment authorization should not have been approved,” said Rodriguez, in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who had raised questions about the case.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki, in an interview Wednesday on Fox News, declined to address the Rangel-Hernandez case specifically – or whether illegal immigrants who engage in criminal activity are being allowed to stay in the U.S. under DACA or similar executive actions. (DACA is intended to give a deportation reprieve to some illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.)

“Let me tell you what DACA is about,” Psaki told Fox News. “It’s not about not only giving a path [to citizenship] to individuals who are in the United States. It’s morally right… I can’t go into detail on every specific case. This is something that there are a number of steps in place that we take to look at who benefits from it.”

Rangel-Hernandez, originally from Mexico, is now charged with first-degree murder in connection with the killings in February in North Carolina of four people, including former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Mirjana Puhar.

“This statement by USCIS confirms what we have feared – that USCIS is not doing a thorough job reviewing the individuals who it allows to stay in this country under the president’s deferred action program” Grassley said in a written statement.

“It’s no secret that USCIS staff is under intense pressure to approve every DACA application that comes across their desk. And based on this information, it’s clear that adequate protocols are not in place to protect public safety. The fact is that this tragedy could have been avoided if the agency had a zero-tolerance policy with regard to criminal aliens and gang members.”

At the time his request was considered, Rangel-Hernandez already was in deportation proceedings. He earlier came to the attention of Immigration and Customs Enforcement after a 2012 arrest for marijuana possession, for which the charges were subsequently dismissed.

Rodriguez, in his letter, said there is “no indication” that immigration officers were aware at that time he was a known gang member. However, he said a separate database indicated he was. He said USCIS has provided new training.

Illegal Alien Charged With Aggravated Rape Of 10-Year-Old Girl – CNS

.

Hermes Rivera, a 25-year-old illegal alien living in Kenner, La., has been charged with three counts of aggravated rape against a 10-year-old girl, according to reports from the local ABC affiliate.

Rivera was arrested after the girl’s mother, who was reportedly dating Rivera, saw a video on her daughter’s cell phone on April 16 in which the girl claimed she and Rivera had “made love.”

“The mother confronted her daughter about the video, at which time the 10-year-old disclosed the sexual acts occurred in their bedroom,” a press release from the Kenner Police Department stated.

“Once speaking to her daughter, the mother confronted her boyfriend, Hermes Rivera, who then admitted to engaging in sexual intercourse with her daughter on three different occasions,” the police said.

When police arrived on the scene later that day, Rivera admitted to having sex with the young girl three times between March and April 3, 2015, claiming that “she asked him to have sex with her,” police said.

Lt. Brian McGregor of the Kenner Police Department told CNSNews.com Wednesday that local police had not been able to locate a prior criminal history for Rivera.

“This individual had no prior criminal history, at least not locally that we were able to find,” McGregor confirmed.

The press release stated an immigration detainer has been placed on Rivera.

The tragic story is similar to an incident in March, when Ramiro Ajualip, a 27-year-old illegal alien, was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy of a 10-year-old girl in Russellville, Ala.

Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett said Ajualip had been in the country about four weeks when the incident occurred in February and was actually living in the home of his victim as a family friend, according to WHNT 19 News. The report stated Ajualip allegedly raped the girl while her family was not home, then threatened her to keep her quiet.

After the girl told her parents what had happened, Ajualip was arrested and confessed to the attack, the report said.

At the time of the report, Ajualip was being held in the Franklin County Jail under a $150,000 bail.

“Yeah, there was an accident when they had an over-the-shoulder” display, KSWB assignment editor Mike Wille told Times of San Diego. “It wasn’t on purpose.”

Democrat Senator Landrieu Illegally Charged Taxpayers For 43 Private Flights

Landrieu Internal Review Reveals 43 Trips Inappropriately Funded – The Hill

.

.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) found that over $33,700 in campaign flights were inappropriately charged to her official account in an internal review of her finances released Friday.

The report is sure to draw added scrutiny to her use of charter planes just as her main opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), is set to introduce a resolution meant to highlight such spending, which he calls a “waste of Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars.”

The review, which was released four days after her self-imposed deadline of Sept. 8, found that the senator took 43 trips, which amounted to 136 campaign functions, that were paid for by funds meant for official business only. Eleven percent of the total amount Landrieu’s office paid for chartered flights should have been paid out of her campaign funds, the review found.

Landrieu’s office said she fully reimbursed the Treasury with campaign funds and has notified the Senate Ethics Committee of the errors. She also said in a statement that she’s implemented a new bookkeeping system to prevent similar errors from happening again.

“The review I ordered last month found these mistakes stemming from sloppy book keeping. I take full responsibility. They should have never happened, and I apologize for this,” Landrieu said. “A new system has been established that has been successfully used by a number of senate offices to provide a safeguard from this happening in the future.”

Landrieu ordered the internal review after it was reported that she inappropriately used $3,200 in official funds to pay for a flight to and from a campaign event in November. That report sparked criticism from Republicans, and inspired an attack ad that claimed Landrieu “lives like a movie star.”

The release of Landrieu’s internal review again prompted Republicans to hammer Landrieu on the issue.

“With 43 illegal flights and more than 100 campaign events, this was clearly policy of her office to use taxpayer means whenever possible to attend events,” said Louisiana Republican Party Executive Director Jason Dore. “Mary’s staff has changed. The donors have changed. The one thing that has been constant is this is Mary Landrieu’s office. She’s the one responsible for this practice going on in her office.”

Cassidy’s bill would require members of Congress to report any funds used to pay for private chartered planes to the Ethics Committee or the Committee on House Administration within 30 days of the flight.

“Taking charter planes unnecessarily is a waste of Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars. It makes no sense to fly on a $3,000 private jet if you can get to the same location in a few hours’ drive time and a $50 tank of gas,” he said in a statement obtained by The Hill. “Washington’s spending is out of control and this is one of the reasons why. Ensuring that Washington is transparent and tax dollars are spent wisely is a priority.”

Cassidy’s office said constituents had expressed alarm at Landrieu’s use of chartered planes, which had partially inspired the resolution.

Landrieu remains one of Democrats’ most vulnerable senators, and the most recent poll showed a tight race, with Cassidy leading Landrieu by two points. Many expect the three-way primary fight, between Cassidy, Landrieu and Tea Party-backed Rob Maness, to head to a runoff this fall.

Polling shows a tight race.

Suspected Terrorist Charged In Plot To Derail Train Allowed To Plead Down To Lying On A Visa Application

Tunisian Man Gets Plea Deal For Amtrak Terror Plot – New York Post

.

.
A Tunisian man​ charged in an unsuccessful plot to derail an Amtrak train en route from Penn Station to Toronto copped a plea Wednesday to less serious immigration charges.

Ahmed Abassi, 27, avoided terrorism charges by pleading guilty in Manhattan federal court to lying on his visa application and to immigration officials when asked why he flew to the United States in 2013.

“I stated on my visa application that my intention was to enter the United States to engage in business” as a real estate agent, Abassi told Judge Miriam Cedarbaum. “I lied because my entire purpose was to return to Canada.”

Abassi, who previously lived in Canada, “radicalized” one of the alleged train plotters, Chiheb Esseghaier, and met with him in New York City after traveling here in mid-March of 2013, prosecutors said last year in court filings. An undercover agent recorded both men discussing a plot to release bacteria in the air or water to kill up to 100,000 people. the feds said.

Abassi faces up six years in prison at sentencing on July 23 but could be released from jail and immediately deported if Cedarbaum agrees to a defense request for time served. His lawyer, Sabrina Shroff, claimed the undercover agent entrapped her client.

Abassi had faced up to 50 years in prison on terror charges.

The plea deal is a far cry from how Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara previously portrayed him in a statement last year in which he referred to Abassi as radical planning to “commit acts of terror and develop a network of terrorists here.”

Former Rep. Keith Farnham, 66, announced his resignation in March, one day after he won the Democratic primary, running unopposed. (E. Jason Wambsgans, Chicago Tribune)

In March 2014 authorities from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations seized electronics from Illinois Democrat Keith Farnham’s state office.

Today Democrat Keith Farnham was charged with possession of child pornography on his work computer in his state office in Elgin.

The Chicago Tribune reported:

Former Illinois State Rep. Keith Farnham was charged today with possession of child pornography more than a month after he abruptly resigned after federal agents raided his home and state office.

The federal charges alleged that Farnham, 66, of Elgin, possessed two videos depicting child pornography on a computer that was seized from his state office in Elgin in March. He is scheduled to make his initial appearance at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in downtown Chicago on Wednesday.

When he resigned his seat on March 19, Farnham told the Tribune he was stepping down due to serious health concerns. A Navy veteran who ran a painting business in Elgin before running for office in 2009, Farnham said he is receiving treatment for bladder cancer and also struggles with pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that causes lung tissue to scar.

Federal agents executed a search warrant at Farnham’s office and residence in Elgin on March 13. Several computers and electronic storage devices were recovered that contained child pornography images, including the two charged videos, according to the complaint unsealed today.

The office computer that contained the videos was labeled “PROPERTY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.”

According to a criminal complaint, homeland security agents were investigating information received from its Cyber Crimes Center that an email address was being used to trade child pornography on the Internet.
