Obama's Top Immigration Selectee Investigated for Embezzlement

Debbie Schlussel reports that Obama’s top immigration agent selectee is under investigation for alleged embezzlement and/or misuse of ICE funds used in undercover operations.

Robert Schoch and the Los Angeles Deputy Special Agent in Charge, Jennifer Silliman, were escorted from the ICE federal offices in Long Beach, California, and their badges and guns were taken from them (standard procedure when an agent is under investigation and put on leave). They were both put on administrative leave pending a continuing investigation. A search warrant was reportedly executed on Agent Schoch’s home, and sources say his computers from both his LAX and Long Beach offices were seized.
This is not unprecedented. During the 1980s, then-Mayor Tom Bradley forced the LAPD to hire felons like Rafael Perez and David Mack (Rampart) under the pretext of affirmative action. While wearing LAPD uniforms, both did what felons do and the media was happy to help LA’s corrupt politicians blame the LAPD for Bradley’s sabotage.

By appointing someone whose behavior may not be above reproach, Obama can do to US immigration agencies and policy what he’s doing to the US economy and wants to do to healthcare. By creating a crisis, he can fill the vacuum with whatever he wants.
