I am getting more than a little tired of the unscrupulous tactics employed by our government. Why can’t they just leave us alone? Graciela forwarded me a copy of the DHS Opposition to Motion to Terminate and I read it, knowing it would be ugly. Boris Badenov stated in his “FACTS” section that Alberto came to the attention of the USICE after he assaulted someone with a rock then he listed each and every injury suffered by the victim. It is ridiculous how they seem bound and determined to paint Alberto in the worst light. They must be trying to exploit the human brain by repeating something enough times so that someone will believe it’s true. In an attempt to cover his own posterior, Boris then filed an I-261 (Additional Charges of Inadmissibility / Deportability) with his Opposition. What charge could he possibly add to this farce? Well, interestingly enough the additional charge against Alberto is INA § 212(a)(7)(A)(i)(I):
Any immigrant who, at the time of application for admission is not in possession of a valid unexpired immigrant visa, reentry permit, border crossing identification card, or other valid entry document required by the Immigration and Nationality Act, and a valid unexpired passport, or other suitable travel document, or document of identity and nationality if such document is required under the INS regulations.
A waiver is available under INA §212(k) where the Attorney General is satisfied that the exclusion was not known to, and could not have been ascertained by the exercise of reasonable diligence by, the immigrant before the time of departure of the vessel or aircraft from the last port outside the United States and outside foreign contiguous territory or, in the case of an immigrant coming from foreign contiguous territory, before the time of the immigrant's application for admission.
What the hell immigration? You paroled him into the United States for Prosecution; of course he’s not going to have a visa or other proof of lawful entry! He was arrested at the border because of the active warrant, and the only reason he was “seeking admission” was because you stated if he said as much he could adjust status here! Now someone please tell me how the actions of the DHS in recent months have resembled anything slightly ethical? Sounds like a rampant lack of morals to me, not that my opinion seems to matter. In the future Boris and his ilk will all have to answer to a higher power, I wonder how they will justify these abuses of power over their fellow man?
