Democratic Senate Intern Illegal Immigrant & Sex Offender- BUSTED!
UPDATE 1/16/13 (short story is my “’wait-till-after-election-day’ hijinks” line was correct!) FOX NEWS- US Delayed the Arrest of Sen. Menendez’s Undocumented Intern Prior to the Election
This is my “now-I’ve-heard-everything” of the day, with some “wait-till-after-election-day” hijinks thrown in. An intern in the office of Senator Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) was arrested December 6, 2012 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, for being in the country under an expired visitor visa.
Authorities in Hudson County [New Jersey] notified ICE agents in early October that they suspected Sanchez was an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender and who may be eligible to be deported. 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.
The moral of the story for Menendez?
Menendez said the arrest spoke to the need for comprehensive immigration reform that brings illegal immigrants out of the shadows.
Is that lefty spin or what? Democratic Senator has illegal immigrant registered sex offender working in his office, and this speaks to need for immigration reform? Amazing.
BTW– just in case you missed it– Women: Sen. Bob Menendez paid us for sex in the Dominican Republic (11/01/12)
