Skip to comments.NJ airport supervisor admits using dead man's ID

An illegal immigrant from Nigeria admitted Friday he assumed the identity of a murdered man so he could work at Newark's airport, where he was a security supervisor for 20 years. He now faces possible deportation.
Bimbo Oyewole, 54, pleaded guilty in state court to using a fake security badge under a plea deal in which prosecutors agreed to recommend he receive probation. He had been charged with identity theft when he was arrested in May.
Oyewole admitted in court that he is in the country illegally, having entered on a student visa in 1989 and stayed after it expired.

Glad my parents didn’t name me “Bimbo”
An ILLEGAL immigrant from Nigeria was a SECURITY SUPERVISOR at an AIRPORT???????? OMG!!! He was a Security RISK!!! We are DUMBASSES.
There could be millions like him...
I can’t get past anyone hiring a guy named Bimbo.
He got away with it for 20 years, that’s NoBimbo to me.
Under Obama's Rule, everyone now realizes that punishment for infraction of laws is capricious. Capricious in the respect that "color," "origin," and "likelihood of political persuasion" are the important factors here.
“I cant get past anyone hiring a guy named Bimbo.”
THEY DIDN’T KNOW HIS NAME WAS BIMBO!!!
Why do you think he needed a new identity? LOL.
This is really bothering me. Nigeria used to be a British Colony. English is like a second language there. They HAD TO KNOW that naming a kid “Bimbo” could only lead to bad things.
I have nail clippers in my brief case and the TSA hauls me off for jail. Bimbo here get's a "do over" , WHAT!?.
why would anyone illegal want to become legal? Break (more of) our laws and we send you time out for a bit so you can try again later.
That word ‘possible’ burns me up.
I read where an illegal immigrant raped a toddler and after his jail sentence, he, too, would face ‘possible’ deportation.
The one time I didn’t read the article...busted. Still betting his work buddies called him Bimbo not Jerry. Guess background checks only happen in the private sector.
A great example of why security systems based on ID cards and records are so likely to fail.
“Glad my parents didnt name me Bimbo”
Hey! Watch it! My middle name is “Bimbo!”
Nigerians and Somalis have taken over nearly every major airport in the US. Glad I don’t have to fly much anymore.
"Jerry Thomas," all-American---after his arrest.
When "Jerry" showed up for work in his batik head-dress carrying
his ceremonial sword and prayer rug----the sap-happy Port Authority
chalked one up for "diversity."
“There could be millions like him...”
There is...in the awhile House.
Problem is, the one in the White House isn’t nearly as experienced.
