U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez employed as an unpaid intern in his Senate office an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender, now under arrest by immigration authorities, The Associated Press has learned. The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after Election Day, a U.S. official involved in the case told the AP


Wow. Are they that desperate that they can't get legal non-criminals to intern for them?

And we keep being told that only rich Republicans hire illegal immigrants. Yeah, right. Plenty of rich Democrats do also but the left will never admit it.

Agreed. Honestly, I believe the majority of people that have no problem hiring in illegals in the workplace, also hire them in their household as well. Unfortunately for those of us who want our laws enforced, the acceptance of this practice grows bigger everyday. Americans on the dole don't care as long as Obama keeps those checks and other taxpayer funded freebies coming. Unfortunately, the slope for we the taxpayers gets more slippery everyday.

ICE agents in New Jersey notified superiors at the Homeland Security Department because they considered it a potentially high profile arrest, and DHS instructed them not to arrest Sanchez until after the November election, one U.S. official told the AP. ICE officials complained that the delay was inappropriate, but DHS directed them several times not to act, the official said.
Quote:
During the final weeks of President George W. Bush's administration, ICE was criticized for delaying the arrest of President Barack Obama's aunt, who had ignored an immigration judge's order to leave the country several years earlier after her asylum claim was denied.

In that case, the Homeland Security Department had imposed an unusual directive days before the 2008 election requiring high-level approval before federal agents nationwide could arrest fugitive immigrants including Zeituni Onyango, the half-sister of Obama's late father.
So, prior to both the 2008 and 2012 elections, DHS gave a hands-off directive to ICE agents. Does anyone else see a disturbing pattern? Both sides are playing games. But, we should believe they are diligently pursuing "criminal" illegal aliens, and deporting them in "record" numbers.

Obviously, this illegal alien pervert did not undergo a background check prior to being hired. Otherwise, Menendez would have known his intern is in the country illegally, as well as a registered sex offender, which, of course, the good Senator vehemently denies. At the very least, this is negligent hiring. Had he committed a sexual assault on a coworker, Menendez would have been held liable. If not for this incident, his DACA application probably would have been approved. We have no idea how many perverts and other criminals are illegally working for politicians, including at the White House. Not to mention, receiving rubber-stamp approval for DACA. Yet, only racist "wingnuts" oppose illegal immigration, support E-Verify, and want our laws enforced.

Agreed. It is beyond disturbing that this has been kept under wraps. I haven't heard one word about this on any local or cable channel. Volunteer or not he should at least have to fill out an application. Additionally, he and all of his immediate family members should have been subjected to an extensive background check. There's a lot of unanswered questions in this situation. As far as DACA is concerned, all you have to do is browse the Dream Act forum where they openly admit to having past convictions and wondering if they should list them and how it will affect the outcome of their applications.
