Nearly every discussion about immigration these days involve the failures to secure the southern border of the United States and the need to make the E-Verify program mandatory. Most recently the discussions about immigration are most likely to focus on the administration’s ongoing assault on the effective enforcement of the immigration laws from within the interior of the United States and the need to provide “pathways to citizenship” for unknown millions- likely tens of millions of illegal aliens, even though there is no way of knowing who most of these foreign nationals are nor is their any easy way of determining the veracity of any claims that aliens who evaded the inspections process will make in their applications for amnesty. This is also a key problem where the ongoing massive deferred action program that the administration has implemented for illegal alien “DREAMERS.”
Time and again I have provided testimony before various Congressional hearings about the utter lack of integrity to the various immigration benefit programs that provide aliens with lawful status and even United States citizenship. This was also a major factor in the testimony I provided to the 9/11 Commission.
Today I was surfing the internet to see what is going on in the wacky world of immigration and came upon a new release that was issued by the Office of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York on December 18, 2012- just a couple of weeks ago. There have been no reports of this story on news programs that would rather run stories about muggings or examples of celebrities running amok!
Here is the title of the news release:
“Twenty-Six Individuals, Including Six Lawyers, Charged In Manhattan Federal Court With Participating In Immigration Fraud Schemes Involving Hundreds Of Fraudulent Asylum Applications”
Here is the sub-title that appeared in this extensive news release:
“Applications Containing Fabricated Claims of Persecution Were Allegedly Submitted By at Least 10 New York City Law Firms”
Do you think if the law firms were involved in tax evasion or some other area of criminality that the story would not have made headlines? Where immigration is concerned the narrative is more important than the truth! As a result- this major story will likely not be discussed on television or radio programs or written about in newspapers! Since you are not likely to see this press release anywhere else, I have attached it, in its entirety, below.
Before we delve into the particulars of this story I want you to know a bit about my own background so that you will, hopefully, better appreciate my perspectives.
