Mother of accused sniper deported

Mother of accused sniper deported


    The mother of accused sniper John Lee Malvo has been deported to Jamaica, federal authorities confirmed yesterday.
    Una Scion James, 38, was taken into custody by U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service officers on Tuesday after deciding not to appeal a pending Nov. 19 deportation order by a federal immigration judge. She initially filed a petition with INS requesting special protection as a battered spouse.
    Mrs. James was flown late Thursday night from Seattle, where she had been detained last year by U.S. Border Patrol agents, to Miami, where she was transferred aboard a flight to Jamaica, her home country.
    She lived in Jamaica with her 17-year-old son until 1998, when they moved to Antigua and met John Allen Muhammad, 41, who also has been charged in the 23-day killing spree in Maryland, Virginia and the District that claimed 10 lives and wounded three other persons. The two also are named in shootings in Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana.
    Law-enforcement authorities said Mrs. James entered the United States in late 2000 using phony documents she obtained from Mr. Muhammad. Her son and Mr. Muhammad remained in Antigua, but came to this country in early 2001 — the boy using a passport identifying him as Mr. Muhammad's son, according to Antiguan officials.
    Initially, Mr. Malvo joined his mother in Fort Myers, Fla., but he ran away in October 2001 to rejoin Mr. Muhammad in Bellingham, Wash., where they lived in a homeless shelter posing as father and son.
    In December, Mrs. James called Bellingham police to help take her son from Mr. Muhammad, but responding officers called the Border Patrol when the teenager suggested he and his mother had illegally entered the country.
    Mrs. James and her son were arrested by Border Patrol Agents Keith Olson and Raymond Ruiz, who recommended them for immediate deportation after the woman said she and her son had been stowaways on a ship that arrived in Miami. It was Mr. Olson who obtained the fingerprints of Mr. Malvo during his arrest as an illegal alien that led federal authorities to his arrest in a Maryland rest stop.
    The agents' recommendation for immediate deportation was overturned by the INS when Mrs. James told a contradictory story about how she and her son had been smuggled into the United States. Within weeks of his release, Mr. Malvo was on the road with Mr. Muhammad.
   
-END of excerpt



We may never know exactly WHERE Malvo's mother was staying near DC, but my bets are in the Coalsville section of Silver Spring, near the corner of Tamarack and Mimosa Ln - or roughly 1400 Mimosa Ln.
[ the area where Muhammad & Malvo were put up for the night on September 29 2002]

Mrs. James and her son were arrested by Border Patrol Agents Keith Olson and Raymond Ruiz, who recommended them for immediate deportation after the woman said she and her son had been stowaways on a ship that arrived in Miami.

The agents' recommendation for immediate deportation was overturned by the INS when Mrs. James told a contradictory story about how she and her son had been smuggled into the United States.

Mrs. James originally told Border Patrol Agents Keith Olson and Raymond Ruiz that she and her son were smuggled into the US aboard a ship (see I-213 narrative by Agent Olsen)

Agent Olson incorrectly classified her and her son as stowaways on the I-213.

The classification was not overturned, it was changed because Mrs. James and her son were not properly classified and never told anyone they stowed away on a ship. BP agents do not charge anyone, they make recommendations and turn them over to the Deportation Officer who makes the final charge and decides to prosecute or not.

The problem here is the INS policy to allow certain classifications of illegal aliens to be set free on bond. No alien should be released, once apprehended, regardless of how they entered the country.

They should be detained and removed form the country immediately, unless they can show immediate proof that their lives would be in jeopardy upon returning to their home country.

Talk about locking the barn door after the horse gets out! This is the equivalent of every horse at the Kentucky Derby escaping, and then the stable police announcing that they've recovered a mouse that lived there.

Once Ms. James is back in Jamaica or Antigua, I wonder how long she will be able to draw breath.

I must keep an eye on the Jamaica Observer and the Antiqua Sun.

There is another woman (a Ms Ascot) presently being detained in Antigua for another one of Muhammad's passport frauds. LE is also searching for a couple of males in Antigua that are suspected of being accomplishes of Muhammad.

Bye-bye Una James.

So after we deport 10 million illegals do we grant amnesty to the other 20 million?

That's why NJ's GOP leaders are now demanding background checks be done on all MVS licensing employees.

Very interesting. I think the DMV (Dept of Motor Vehicles, depending on what your particular state calls it) should be subject to particular scrutiny everywhere. If you can get a driver's license in this country, you have ID that suffices for just about anything, and these people have a lot of power.

But if they are financially corrupt or ideologically motivated employees, there is a serious weak point in the system. Remember the DMV employee who was murdered in Tennessee earlier this year, obviously because she was involved in something like this?

DMV employees should be carefully checked, and members of certain organizations (al Fuqra, for example) should not be hired. They are low-level bureaucrats but control a lot of information and have what one might describe as "authenticating" powers.

The same goes for Post Office employees, who are people who have access to everywhere and whose activities are never questioned. I've always thought that there was probably a postal service employee involved in the anthrax mailings, whether or not he was fully aware of exactly what he was doing.

Low level state and federal government employees are ideal tools for terrorists.

Too little too late you INS bastards.

Next deport the Tancredo kid, and then every Muslim past their Visa, then every Mexican without documentation...HINT: nail them when they go to get their illegal "Consulate ID".

I guess the INS took a little time off from trying to deport widows who lost their legal status after their husbands were killed in the World trade center.

Yup...she should have never been able to slip in, in the first place.

SniperMama Malvo deported?

Must be the first person deported since Lucky Luciano! Maybe this is a trend? Maybe we could use deportations to solve United Airline's survival problem? Round'em up, Head'em Up, Move'em out. If they don't like it: Rawhide!

Seriously, if United Airlines were to do nothing but fly illegals back to their homelands at the government's expense, they would have 5 profitable years ands it still would be cheaper than having real border security.

Take the money from UN dues, and seize all assets of the illeglas' homelands until they learn to keep their problems at home.

The agents' recommendation for immediate deportation was overturned by the INS when Mrs. James told a contradictory story about how she and her son had been smuggled into the United States. Within weeks of his release, Mr. Malvo was on the road with Mr. Muhammad.

And the families of the dead victims must be asking, Why is the INS so eager to protect the non-existent rights of illegals who border-crash their way into America?

Why do I think the government was worried about what we might learn? Funny how they seem to deport the very few we need to talk to...

Wonder how soon El Jorge will order that change in policy?

Never and neither will anyone else, unfortunately.

Another FReeper had the idea of offering them amnesty then arresting the bastards when they show up. That works for me.
