WHO LET LEE MALVO LOOSE?
Jewish World Review ^ | 25 October 2002 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 10/24/2002 2:31:09 PM PDT by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin

The mainstream media informed us this week that Lee Malvo, the reportedly "17-year-old" youth charged as a material witness in the sniper investigation along with John Mohammed, is a "Jamaican national." As of this writing (Oct. 24), the Immigration and Naturalization Service refused to comment publicly on the exact nature of Malvo's immigration status. Here are the facts the INS doesn't want you to know: Lee Malvo is an illegal alien from Jamaica who jumped ship in Miami in June 2001. He was apprehended by the Border Patrol in Bellingham, Wash., in December 2001, but was then let go by the INS district in Seattle in clear violation of federal law and contrary to what the arresting Border Patrol officers intended, according to my law enforcement sources.

According to INS records I obtained, Malvo was arrested by Border Patrol agents in Bellingham, Wash., on December 19, 2001. Local police called the Border Patrol during an incident involving "some sort of custody dispute" between Malvo's mother, Uma Sceon James, and John Mohammed (the ex-Army soldier with black radical Muslim ties now at the center of the sniper investigation). James admitted that six months earlier, "she and her son were passengers on a cargo ship that was filled with 'illegal asians (sic).' They were all off loaded in the Miami, FL area where she immediately located work at the Red Lobster in Ft. Myers, FL."

From there, Malvo and James traveled to Tacoma, Wash., and ended up in Bellingham. At the time of their arrest, INS records indicate, neither Malvo nor his mother had any documents proving their identities or allowing them "to be or remain in the United States legally." The Border Patrol agents concluded that because she had "no roots or close family ties in the United States, James was likely to abscond." The arresting officer noted that the mother-and-son illegal aliens, Malvo and James, would be "detained at the Seattle Detention facility in Seattle, Washington pending deportation charges."

That's not what happened. About a month after their arrest, Malvo and his mother were set free by the Seattle district INS-contrary to what the arresting Border Patrol officers had determined should be done. And in clear violation of federal law regarding the removal of illegal alien stowaways. According to the Detention and Deportation Officers' Field Manual:

"Occasionally, you may encounter an alien who claims to be a stowaway, but cannot or will not provide information concerning the name of the vessel of arrival. Prior to April 1, 1997, such aliens could be handled in the same way as any other EWI [entered without inspection] case and placed into removal proceedings. The [Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act], however, directs that stowaways, regardless of when encountered, are to be removed without a hearing.citing section 235(a)(2) of the Act as the authority for the action."

The law is explicit: Illegal alien stowaways are to be detained and deported without hearings. James admitted that she and her son were illegal alien stowaways. Yet, in January 2002, James was released on a $1,500 bond; Malvo was set loose without any bond on his own recognizance. Here is my theory: Somebody at the Seattle INS office leaned on the arresting Border Patrol officers to disregard Malvo and his mother's "stowaway" status-allowing them to run free and allowing the INS to avoid the costs associated with detention and deportation. So, who let Lee Malvo loose? The Seattle INS office referred my call to the Washington, D.C. headquarters. The national headquarters referred calls to the Montgomery County sniper task force. Standard INS operating procedure: Pass the buck and run for cover.

"This makes me sick to my stomach," says Daryl Schermerhorn, vice president of the Northwest regional chapter of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents Border Patrol agents in Washington State. "The INS is not concerned with enforcing immigration law," he told me this week. "It's more concerned with freeing up jails and saving a few bucks than it is with protecting Americans and removing people who don't belong here."

As I document in my book, Invasion, these countless "catch and release" cases have demoralized rank-and-file INS agents and cost scores of American lives-from cops gunned down by fugitive deportees to victims of illegal border-crossing murderers, and now, quite possibly, to the innocents slaughtered in the Washington, D.C., area sniping spree. Eugene Davis, a retired deputy chief Border Patrol agent in Blaine, Wash., told me: "This is another classic example of how our catch and release policy for illegal aliens remains a danger to us all. What's it going to take for the American people to demand that we fix the system?"

Malkin has got to be one of the MOST astute writers of the day.

Wasn't the shoe-bomber, Reid, connected to Jamaica in some way? His father was Jamaican?

And WHO bears accountability? Perhaps if the officer who let the illegal go free (over-riding Federal Law) were charged as an accomplis to 10 acts of murder; and spent a few years behind bars, others would catch the drift. He directly aided and abeited the murder of 10 innocents.

Yeah, I heard they identified Malvo's fingerprints on a piece of paper left behind one of the murders. This means his prints were already on record.

Malvo and Muhammed. What is their true relationship? Was Muhhamed ever married to James? How does Malvo come by the title "step-son"?

WHEN is someone going to get down and dirty and clean up the intolerable mess at the INS? If the random murder of 10 everyday people doesn't move anyone to action, nothing will. It's over.

Oh, and Mr. Tancredo (pro-borders, language, and culture Congressman from Colorado), call your office!

Failure to control our borders keeps killing innocent Americans. We can expect more of it. Who knows how many sleeper foreign terrorists are waiting within our country to kill more innocents? I don't know if the people will eventually allow their outrage to overcome their foolish political correctness but until they do, many more will probably die.

And WHO bears accountability?

Nobody. The woman who let 13 of the hijackers into the country got a bonus last week. If th INS were a private company, heads would roll. It's a sort-of Libertarian argument, but perhaps if the INS were a private company under contract to the federal government there would be a lot more accountability. What they have done is criminal negligence.

A black muslim and an illegal alien (released into the US by INS officials) shoot 13 people in 'sniper' attacks, and are caught in one of the biggest law enforcement manhunts in US history. The economic impact to the DC area is probably as great as the 9/11 attacks, and the 'terror' is actually more widespread throughout the area than 9/11.

Profilers hired by broadcast networks expouse theories about 'lone white male gun owners'.

Liberal democrats call for more gun control measures.

PC press headline reads: "Former US Army soldier and stepson suspected in DC shootings."

C.A.I.R. press release lists incidents of 'bigotry' against muslims.

US population breaths a sigh of relief and goes back to watching Survivor and Real World.

INS is waiting for an amnesty.

As currently written, the Gephardt amnesty would:

» Grant immediate green cards to not only the estimated 8 to 11 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S., but also to their spouses and minor children who may be living outside the country. In addition they would become immediately eligible for all federal and state welfare benefits available to legal immigrants.

» Give the relatives of illegal aliens admission priority over the relatives of legal immigrants.

» Accept attestations of continuous presence and/or employment in the U.S. in lieu of proof of the fact that an applicant has lived in this country long enough to be eligible for amnesty.

» Bar the INS from deporting illegal aliens who might qualify for amnesty until final regulations are written - a period which could take years.

» Qualify illegal aliens who have been deported and who subsequently returned to the U.S. Moreover, the period during which they were outside the U.S. will count towards the requirement of continuous presence.

» Designate nongovernmental organizations to process applications. This is an open invitation to fraud since both the government and the public will be barred from access to their records. Among the fraudulent recipients of the 1986 amnesty was one of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers.

» Broadly allow denials of amnesty to be challenged in federal courts, creating the potential for years of delay and unimaginable litigation costs.

This is digusting news that Michelle uncovered. Heads should roll at the INS and James Ziglar should be fired immediately, but him and Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan are way too busy promising Amensty and county services to illegal aliens. Look out Maryland, you should expect a big influx of illegal aliens after Doug Duncan's statement yesterday. Oh yeah, heads should also roll in Congress as well.

Good points all, and we can't expect politicians or anyone with any power to address these issues rationally. For just a few hundred dollars, a wack job was able to bring commerce to a near standstill in huge areas, scare the hell out of hundreds of thousands of citizens (rightly so) and untold millions of dollars spent on their apprehension, possibly to the detriment of other, ongoing investigations and duties.

We've also broadcast in excruciating detail to our friends and enemies alike our methods and procedures Law Enforcement uses, and how perpetrators of such horrors can improve their chances of eluding capture.

A great man once said "The Constitution is not a suicide pact". Apparently that knowledge hasn't sunk in quite yet.

One of the meatpuppets just mentioned the way the cops confirmed the notes were from the shooter. The letters would start with five stars at the top of the page.

The speculation is that they represent a popular band in Jamaica called The Five Stars Band or similar names.

Google spat out a few hits under "Five Star Band." Here's a link to an east African paper that mentions the band.

Then I broadened my search and came upon lyrics by the rap group called Killarmy which is essentially the Wu-Tang Clan. Here's a sample:

"To all my Universal Soldier[s]: stay at attention while I strategize an invasion; the mission be assassination, snipers hitting Caucasians with semi-automatic shots heard around the world; my plot is to control the globe and hold the world hostage. . . . see, I got a war plan more deadlier than Hitler; it was all written down in ancient scriptures. . . . lyrical specialist, underworld terrorist. . . . we create a massacre like Texas Chainsaw, blood for blood; keep the unity thick like mud. . . . I pulling out gats, launching deadly attacks"; "Blood for Blood"; Killarmy, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, 1997, Wu-Tang Records, Priority Records, The EMI Group.

Here's the lyrics to the song "Five Stars."

I didn't know where else to put this so I put it here. Have at it.

I won the office pool. I was the only one who said that the sniper or his accomplice would be illegal.

I also had an almost exact profile on the sniper.

I only hope this will wake up those idiots in Washington, and get them to un-fuck the INS. Starting with Ziglar and his crew.

Because he is a cold-blooded killer and methodically thought of a way to throw authorities off of his trail for a while. Makes the police think it's someone else doing the killing. Pretty sharp idea, I must say. Sick, but deviously smart.

Also there are politicians in both parties pandering for votes who make it impossible for the agents when they invite millions to come over to get in on their amnesties for votes.

Grant immediate green cards to not only the estimated 8 to 11 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S

It wouldn't be limited to those currently residing in the US, just like the 80's amnesty wasn't limited to those living in the US at that time. The minute amnesty is opened up, millions of people will come over to get in on it ....they only ask them to get someone (anyone --it can be a total stranger) to write a notarized letter saying they employed the illegal. Illegals don't have documents or at least not real ones so it's impossible for them to prove anything.
