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.
This must've pained the AP horribly to print this. I can just see the editor yelling, "Shut up, stupid! Don't admit it. We could've covered for you."
...and this would be the same Newark airport where the fifth hijack team "disappeared" into the crowd on 9/11/01.
Some might ask how a Nigerian native could enter the US illegally, as a "student" and have thousands of dollars to buy fake identities......and just "happens" to find a cab driver in the big city selling forged/false id's.
And how did this Nigerian have the smarts to use an elaborate and complex scheme of ID theft to pass multiple security checks.....including (1) checks by The Port Authority, (2) checks by New York and New Jersey govt officials, (3) state govt oversight, (4) the federal government's oversight, (5) NJ state police checks, (6) FJC Security checks (company hired by PA), (7) and checks by the US Customs and Border Protection agency?
WHO WAS HELPING "JERRY" GET A KEY PA JOB? WHO WAS THE ILLEGAL TAKING ORDERS FROM? We need to know what this Nigerian imposter knows about the fifth 9/11 hijack team that melted into the crowd after their plane returned to the gate at Newark and was emptied of its passengers and crew, who all managed to disappear on that cataclysmic day. Clearly "someone " was covering for "Jerry."
"YOO, HOO, LARRY, DO YOU KNOW?"
WHO IS LARRY SILVERSTEIN AND WHY WAS HE THE BIGGEST WINNER OF THE "9/11" LOTTERY? The biggest winner of the "9/11 Lottery" seems to be Larry Silverstein---developer of the WTC. Larry fought like hell to get insurance billions "he said" was for "two accidents" from the 9/11 bombing---AND Larry got billions more from the PA budget, supposedly for (cough) rebuilding.
Seems Larry's not too good at math (/snix) b/c the World Trade Center rebuilding is set to cost $14.8 billion, 35% more than the 2008 estimate of $11 billion....So the sap-happy PA "says" it has to raise tolls to pay Larry for the increases. (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
A recent audit issued July 2012 said the Port Authority is a "dysfunctional organization with a payroll of some 6777, many of whom are high-paid upper echelon management types.....1700 alone in its cop contingent."
According to the audit, "poorly coordinated capital planning, insufficient cost controls.....and a lack of transparent and effective oversight of the WTC rebuilding......has deliberately obscured full scrutiny of billions of dollars (requested by WTC developer Larry Silverstein)." The PA says its recent toll increases (with more pending) were based on Silverstein's redevlopment needs.
MEMO TO LARRY So, Larry, Where's all the money going?
JUST A COINCIDENCE In 1995 (the year Newt Gingrich became the powerful Speaker of the US House), his then-wife Marianne Gingrich landed a plum job with the Israel Export Development Company (IEDC).
Marianne Gingrich's previous job was a makeup consultant for a door-to-door cosmetics company. Marianne was now employed as IEDCs Vice President. Talk about affirmative action (/snix). Marianne's boss at IEDC was Larry Silverstein---lessee of the World Trade Center.
Among Marianne's tasks for Larry Silverstein and his Israel Export Development Company were (1) to develop Americans to relocate jobs and businesses to Israel, and, (2) to get jobs for Israeli interns in Congressional offices.
Wouldn't you love to see the paper trail of numerous financial bombs the IEDC interns planted in US govt agencies to jetstream zillions of US tax dollars to Israel? Zillions over and above the "piddling" $10 billion foreign aid appropriation "ceremoniously" announced each year.
BTW, WTC developer LARRY SILVERSTEIN was the biggest winner of the "9/11 Lottery." Larry fought like hell to get insurance billions "he said" was for "two accidents" from the 9/11 bombing---AND Larry got billions more from the Port Authority govt agency's budget (supposedly for (cough) rebuilding.
Seems Larry's not too good at math (/snix) b/c the World Trade Center rebuilding is set to cost $14.8 billion, 35% more than the 2008 estimate of $11 billion....So the PA "says" it has to raise tolls on the working class to pay Larry for the increase.
The sheer stupidity of the filthy PA----scumbags so busy looting the govt agency, they exploit Americans, undermine US national security and jeopardize the safety and security of the rest of us.....and get off scot-free.
Welcome to Obama's America.
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. He will be jailed pending sentencing Oct. 19.
The state attorney general's office, which prosecuted the case, said Oyewole faces potential deportation. Oyewole admitted in court that he is in the country illegally, having entered on a student visa in 1989 and stayed after it expired.
"I came in legally," Oyewole, hands cuffed behind his back, told the court. Oyewole admitted he used the identity and identity papers of Jerry Thomas, who was shot outside a Queens YMCA in 1992. Authorities had said Oyewole assumed Thomas's identity weeks before he died.The NYPD said Thomas had sold his documents to a Nigerian cab driver, who then sold them to Oyewole.
Prosecutors said they had no evidence tying Oyewole to Thomas' death. Oyewole said he presented Thomas' birth certificate and Social Security card to airport officials. He then received ID cards that give airport workers security clearance. Prosecutors said Oyewole also obtained a New Jersey driver's license and high school equivalency diploma under Thomas' name.
The Port Authority, which operates Newark Liberty International Airport, said Oyewole most recently worked for FJC Security Services, a contractor that staffs access gates and had access to airplanes and the tarmac. He supervised about 30 guards.
Port Authority officials were alerted to Oyewole after receiving an anonymous letter about him."Today's conviction will serve notice to all that the Port Authority of NY and NJ will not tolerate fraud or any other criminal misconduct at its facilities," Port Authority Inspector General Robert E. Van Etten said in a statement.

You know, I almost give this guy a pass. If he worked there for 20 years without incident, get his papers in order and let him stay. GOOD immigrants are hard to find.
“Today’s conviction will serve notice...will not tolerate...” YEAH...after 20 years!!!!!! Great security...great internal controls and investigation. How impressive are these incompetent and corrupt morons?
A good immigrant does not commit fraud.
