Ahead Of SuperBowl, Officials Unveil $39 Million Counterfeit Haul, by Curtis Skinner, Philly.com February 4, 2016SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A year-long operation targeting counterfeit sporting goods resulted in the seizure of $39 million worth of merchandise, including about half a million dollars-worth in the Bay Area ahead of Super Bowl 50, U.S. officials said on Thursday. The so-called Operation Team Player started at the end of last year's Super Bowl in Arizona and authorities have since confiscated some 450,000 illegal items, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Forty-one people have been arrested on charges related to distributing the fake merchandise, and 35 people have been convicted, ICE said in a statement released ahead of Sunday's NFL championship decider. Items seized included fake NFL shirts and caps.
So, instead of dealing with the problem of illegal aliens, many of whom kill, like Francisco Sanchez, the killer of Kate Steinle, or the infamous Edwin Ramos, ICE SVU decided that placating the NFL, who could afford any number of private investigators to deal with the problem of counterfeit merchandise, was more important that protecting Americans from illegal aliens.
Give ICE SVU Special Agent-in-Charge Ryan L. Spradlin a call and ask him which is more important, the lives of Americans or merchandise. They can be reached at (415) 844-5455.
