South Florida Confidential: Upper Keys Times
Blows The Whistle On Refugee Scam]
Now that a local newspaper in Key
documented how a group of Cubans faked an illegal
entry in the Florida Keys—in order to get on a
refugee benefits—the bigger picture of refugee
benefit fraud and abuse is coming into focus.
And guess who`s involved?—all the
usual suspects of the permanent
Treason Lobby, as well as its most notorious
accomplice: the federal government.
As always, when it comes to
inspecting failed immigration policy, all roads lead to
a two-headed bureaucratic monster:
- the U.S. Department of Justice`s
alien-friendly Executive Office for Immigration
Review (EOIR) Immigration Court system and Board of
Immigration Appeals, with its perpetual bureaucratic
limbo of hearings, appeals and more appeals
- the Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) with its institutionalized
“catch and release” policies of
non-detention spawned by the former Immigration
Service, which are all still in effect at Customs
and Border Protection (CBP)
ports of entry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement

don`t just enter by sea, they also fly to Mexico, walk
right up to any port of entry and demand asylum—and are
promptly let in under parole after a brief interview.
This way they still qualify for the same benefits as
rafters, whereas virtually any Mexican doing the same
thing would be turned back to Mexico.
Exactly! At land border ports of
entry and airports, most aliens who say the magic word
“asylum!” ultimately are released from
immigration detention and paroled into the United
States—in the hope they may, someday, show up for EOIR
Immigration Court hearings.
But as I`ve reported before, a
97 percent of all asylum-seekers from ANY
country who were released from immigration custody
were never apprehended again by the federal government.
And, of course, were never deported.
The “brief interview”—my
reader`s term—that the aliens undergo at land border
ports of entry is required under the “credible fear”
review process of Section 235(b) of the
[For an airport scenario, read the
DeportAliens.com anonymous report:
Credible Fear and Loathing -- Real Life in the
Airport as Aliens Drop from the Sky]
According to DHS sources, 93
percent of all aliens who ask for asylum through the
“credible fear” review process are found to have a
“credible fear” of persecution.
A nationwide 93 percent pass
rate—what a bureaucratic joke!
With numbers like that, the
majority of the rubber stamp-wielding asylum officer
Eduardo Aguirre`s Bureau of Citizenship and
Immigration Services (BCIS)
probably never met an alien they thought wasn`t
Though the “credible fear”
required by current immigration law, releasing the
aliens from immigration detention is
not. And yet
Secretario Ridge`s minions keep releasing more
aliens into the U.S. anyway . . . every day.
The informed VDARE.com reader also
reports even more fraud once the intrepid asylum-seekers
are released from detention:
years ago, I participated in a raid on a house of Cubans
involved in large-scale alien smuggling, an increasingly
popular line of work. I was assigned to evidence
gathering. This family had been in the U.S. for all of
five months. I gathered stacks of benefits they were
collecting, everything from free medical to refugee
assistance checks to incredibly, checks for a number of
government loans designated for refugees.
most shocking thing I found were airline tickets
scheduled for the next month—to Cuba! Of course, they
were routed through
Mexico, so as not to trigger suspicion, fines or
refusal of entry back into the U.S. Heaven forbid they
be denied entry—since they are supposedly `fleeing
persecution` and they couldn`t go back to Cuba—unless of
course, it`s with a government reentry permit or green
card in hand.
“Another shocker [is that] state government
agencies are so easily duped into automatically
believing that people from certain countries are
team arrested a Haitian who entered the U.S. as a
stowaway—and was subject to
expedited removal. [He had] injured his leg
jumping off the ship to try to escape the immigration
officer. After we paid for treatment, he was paroled in
for a hearing. [VDARE.COM
note: That`s a hearing before the dreaded EOIR
Immigration Court, of course.]
he was arrested—after he lost all appeals after several
years—we found in his wallet cards for the state
taxpayer-paid Refugee Medical Assistance Program
and receipts showing the reduced medical and dental care
he was receiving. I said, `You aren`t a refugee – you`re
a stowaway!` The card listed him as a refugee and
that he was sponsored by
Catholic Social Services—a complete fraud and
abuse of state funds as he was not brought to the
U.S. as a
refugee by any agency.
So there you have it—the federal
government, state agencies and the helpful Treason Lobby
making it easier for aliens to commit
refugee and asylum fraud every step of the way.
The fraud will continue unabated
until the DHS finally puts some teeth back into
Immigration Act Section 235(b)—putting an end to the
ridiculous 93 percent favorable “credible fear”
charade. But even more importantly, the so-called
“homeland security” department must
STOP RELEASING ILLEGAL ALIENS FROM DETENTION,
even if they pass the current “anyone with a pulse”
standard of “credible fear” review.
So let`s review. Why is the DHS
releasing “credible fear” asylum applicants from
immigration detention in the first place?
Here`s the illogical but true
answer: they`re being released so they can supposedly
show up for EOIR
Immigration Court hearings and continue hiding
in the EOIR
briar patch of
perpetual litigation. In fact as we`ve seen,
97 percent of asylum applicants released from
detention can disappear without a trace, never to be
But remember that, regardless of
whether or not the aliens have a bona fide asylum
claim, as long as they`re free inside the United States
(courtesy of the DHS and EOIR), they`ll be
feeding at the public trough.
A great deal for the Treason Lobby
and their alien charges!
