Obama’s Nominee to Homeland Security Under Federal Investigation


President Obama earlier this year nominated U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services director Alejandro  Mayorkas to be deputy secretary of homeland security, but the nomination seems stalled amid a criminal investigation by the agency’s inspector general and questions about the candor of his Senate testimony.

Testifying in July before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Mr. Mayorkas “contradicted” what he had previously told Senate Judiciary Committee staff about his contacts with Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, who was seeking approval of an EB-5 visa for a Chinese investor, according to an Aug. 23 letter from Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican and ranking minority member of the Judiciary Committee.

Mayorkas is under investigation for breaking ethics rule by arranging for an ‘investor visa,’  the politically ‘elites’ scam to sell green cards for foreign investment.   Gulf Coast Funds Management run by Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodham,  was in cahoots with Terry McAuliffe, owner of GreenTech, that is until it interfered with his run for Governor of Virginia.  It was McAuliffe  who is turn pushed Janet Napolitano to  fast track the EB-5 visa scam.

During his recent confirmation hearing, Mayorkas, a former U.S. attorney in California,  was also  asked about his role in a Clinton-era scandal in which politically connected former officials lobbied the White House for grants of clemency for Carlos Vignali, a convicted drug trafficker, and the son of big Democratic Party donor.  And surprise, Hillary’s brother Hugh Rodham, was hired by the donor to lobby for the commutation.     Mayorkas conveniently does not recall the details of his conversation with the Clintons, but he now concedes that his call was a “mistake.”   A congressional investigation into Clinton’s last-minute pardons blasts Mayorkas for intervening on behalf of Vignali, pointing out that senior law enforcement and political officials should have been precluded from supporting a commutation for such a criminal. Mayorkas resigned in disgrace and went into private practice at a big Los Angeles law firm until Obama named him USCIS director in 2009.

While no vote or action has been scheduled on Mayorkas’ nomination, Senator Thomas Carper, D-DE,  homeland security committee chair, said he is determined to press ahead with the nomination.  “Everything I have learned about Mayorkas, whether it was recommendations from former colleagues (Clintons and McAuliffe?)  or my extensive reviews of his FBI files, has convinced me that he is highly qualified for the job.”

Carper is correct – Mayorkas is definitely qualified for the job – he already has shown his willingness to ignore criminal activity through the  Vignali clemency and through assisting the Clintons, Hillary’s brother,  and McAuliffe in their bid to sell green cards for profit.   He’s absolutely perfect for a job that requires him to be underhanded, forgetful, unethical, void of moral character, tied to the apron strings of Hillary Clinton and by association George Soros,  and already under investigation.  What more could Obama want?

    This administration has succeeded in diverting our attention once again. With all the focus on “illegal” immigrants (an oxymoron at best) they are keeping us from demanding that the current immigration laws are applied to those who have circumvented the system enough to get a green card (so called “legal immigrants).

    My ex came in on student visa yet never went to school and worked illegally for three years (student visa fraud). Got green card by not mentioning her first arrest for theft (material misrepresentation). Failed to mention it again when conditions were removed (again material misrepresentation). Has acquired four additional theft convictions (crimes of moral turpitude). Denied citizenship 2 years ago but continues to reside in US and break our laws. Goes in and out of the country like she’s a citizen. Unfortunately I found this all out after the fact. It’s ICE that needs reform not the immigration laws. And yes, all these allegations (and the supporting documentation) have been submitted to ICE, USCIS, Homeland Security, Obama, and numerous senators and congressmen.
