Judge Who Ruled Against Trump in Case Involving Afghans and Iraqis Has a Complicated History

***Update*** The plot thickens as Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s IT guy is suing the Daily Caller.  Thanks to reader Ann for alerting me to the news.

 

I thought “complicated history” was a nice way of describing the Obama judge who recently ruled that Trump isn’t moving fast enough to admit MORE Afghan and Iraqi Special Immigrant Visa holders to your towns and cities.

We have already admitted over 80,000 but Judge Chutkan says MORE needed and faster!

I posted that story 4 days ago at RRW and the post went viral. I don’t know how or why, but it garnered nearly 10,000 hits at RRW since then.

Although I knew nothing about the judge, many of you did, and Judge Tanya Chutkan has a claim to fame.

She is the judge who presided over the case of the Pakistani brothers who had for years been doing IT work for influential Democrats on the Hill and were arrested on some funny business regarding mortgages.  However, many questioned, and still do question, whether they compromised the US in their role in Congress as information gatherers and keepers.

Here is what reader Deidra alerted me to regarding Judge Chutkan.

From a 2017 article at True Pundit:

‘Rigged’ Awan Judge Appointed By Obama After Giving Thousands in Campaign Cash; Her Husband Appointed a Judge by Obama Too

The federal judge in the Awan case has President Barack Obama’s back. His cohorts Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch are likely covered too. No worries in The Swamp.

The players: Judge Tanya Chutkan, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and Pakistani Imran Awan.

 

U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is presiding over the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi fraud case, was appointed to the federal bench by Obama after she kicked thousands in campaign donations to his presidential campaign when he was a U.S. Senator in Illinois, records confirm.

Obama also appointed Chutkan’s husband, Peter Krauthamer, a judge to the bench in the District of Columbia Superior Court in 2011.

Krauthamer’s mother, and Chutkan’s mother-in-law, also contributed campaign cash to Obama, records confirm.

And Chutkan’s former law firm, where she worked until her appointment to the federal bench in 2014, currently represents Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The firm also is stacked with Democratic lawyers who worked for Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and Barack Obama’s White House, just to name a few D.C. insiders.

If Obama or his administration is implicated in the expanding Awan Congressional probe they likely have little to worry about.

These revelations damper rank-and-file FBI agents who are pressing to expand the case to encompass Awan’s two brothers and press an indictment for selling intelligence gleaned and possibly stolen from Congressional IT network the Awams were charged with safeguarding.

“It’s rigged from almost every angle,” a frustrated FBI insider said.

[….]

FBI agents fear [US Attorney] Phillips — now backed by the federal case judge Chutkan — has cleverly rigged the Awan case to protect Obama, Lynch, Holder and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This likely includes the dozens of Congressional Democrats the Awans served as IT specialists.

[….]

Chutkan, the federal judge on the Awan case, was born in Jamaica. She lived in Jamaica, the Bahamas, France and Spain before coming to the United States, federal law enforcement sources said.

One more reason we must work to keep Trump in office for four more years—to give him time to appoint new judges!

California: Ringleaders in Massive International Fencing Ring were Afghan Special Refugees

You know those “brave boys” who worked for the US military in Afghanistan I’ve been telling you about; the ones who supposedly would have been killed if we left them in their home country; the ones we have been admitting as refugees to the US by the thousands—56,000 so far!  See here.

I’ll bet if you live in any state other than California, this is news to you.  Gotta hand it to local NBC for their great reporting and the Freemont, CA police for their undercover work!

And, many thanks to reader Michael who spotted the information (buried several paragraphs into the story) that those busted ringleaders include three who were welcomed to America by the US military!  So much for robust screening!

Upon their arrival you (your tax dollars) set them up with apartments, medical care and an assortment of social services.

I think we need to find out who in the military vouched for three of the Afghan creeps!

From NBC Bay Area earlier this month:

From an undercover car in a nondescript Hayward strip mall, detectives snapped photos as Isaiah Langley and D’anthony Larks walk into a cellphone store called Torspin Wireless with a bag police believed was stuffed with brand new iPhones.

A few minutes later, photos and video shot by detectives captured the men strolling casually out of the shop towards a black Audi SUV. The bag appeared empty, and they were openly carrying large bricks of cash. It was June 7, three days before Langley would sign a professional football contract with the Oakland Raiders.

Investigators from at least eight different Northern California law enforcement agencies were zeroing in on a crew police say were tied to more than 60 strong-arm robberies and grand thefts – from the Bay Area to Sacramento – targeting delivery drivers carrying shipments of brand new cellphones. Police tracked the crew for three more months, arresting Langley, Larks, and 10 others in August.

But as the Oakland Police Department and Alameda County District Attorney’s Office led the investigation into the suspected robbery crew, detectives from the Fremont Police Department took an interest in Torspin Wireless, the Hayward store police believed was just a front for a major fencing operation trafficking in stolen electronics.

[….]

Detectives began a months-long surveillance operation on the shop – watching time-after-time as customers walked into Torspin carrying boxes or bags and walking out with cash. Detectives would come to believe they’d found the Bay Area’s largest fencing operation for stolen electronics – and the starting point of an international pipeline of stolen phones spanning at least four continents.

[….]

Zemlok [ Fremont Police Detective Rick Zemlok] said the man calling the shots for the operation was one of the store’s three owners, Muhibullah Nuristani. The store’s other owners – Mohammad Mustafa and Abdul Janah – also took part in the suspected fencing ring, as well as Mujibullah Nuristani, a relative of Muhibullah, according to Zemlok. All but Mustafa had been granted citizenship in the United States after serving as translators for the U.S. Army during the war in Afghanistan, according to police and attorneys for the men.

Stolen phones were sold….

all over the globe, in Mexico, China, Russia, Vietnam, Singapore, Dubai, and Australia, among other countries.

There is much more here, see how the police stung the perps.

You paid for their flight to America, set them up with social services and now guess what….

….if found guilty you pay for their incarcerations!

Special Immigrant Visa Holders Coming in by the Thousands from Afghanistan, but Iraqi Flow has Slowed

In my previous post we learned that an Iraqi refugee (from a Special Immigrant Visa holder family) has been arrested in New Hampshire for the murder of a man who was once his neighbor.
(Local news reports say that the alleged killer’s father was a driver for western and UN diplomats, so I am assuming they are an SIV family.)
The story reminded me that I wanted to fill you in about where we stand with admitting these ‘special refugees’ who supposedly once helped us in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Related posts lately include my number crunching for the regular refugee program and for the Unaccompanied alien children (teens!) program which can be found here and here.

Ticket to America for 56,000 Afghans (so far!)

 
The Special Immigrant Visa program is one more legal immigration program.
The number of SIVs from Iraq has dropped under the Trump Administration, but Afghanistan is another story.

The numbers coming in are huge!

Little Laconia, NH has a Murder and the Man Arrested is an Iraqi Refugee

To be more precise, Hassan Ali Sapry is the son of a Special Immigrant Visa holder from Iraq.  The family arrived in New Hampshire in 2008 according to local media reports on the case.

Hassan Sapry
New American Hassan Sapry is behind bars in New Hampshire.

Of course they are all local reports because murders by refugees (or most illegal aliens for that matter) go unreported in the national print or cable news media.
This story is a month old (thanks to Julia for sending it), but it is new to me and likely new to everyone of you (unless you live in NH!).
The news reminds me that I have been planning to tell you where our Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) program is under the Trump Administration.  The last time I looked at the numbers being admitted they were huge—largely from Afghanistan at the moment.  Ten years ago they were growing exponentially from Iraq after Ted Kennedy got the SIV program quietly off the ground.
SIVs are treated just like regular refugees and receive all of the usual welfare goodies refugees receive. Paid refugee contractors are responsible for placing them and someone knowledgeable about the program once reported to me that it is the SIV arrivals that are keeping the contractors afloat.
But I digress….
I’ll post the latest numbers soon.
For more on the Laconia, NH murder, there are lots of local stories about the murder and the manhunt that followed. Here are just a couple of those.
