As a Bolivian native faces charges for killing a nun while drunk driving, a Virginia official is calling on Congress to subpoena Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to find out how many criminal illegal immigrants referred for deportation are released back into the communities where they were picked up.

Corey Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County, Va., board of supervisors, said his county’s police referred Carlos Martinelly Montano for deportation twice in the past after he served sentences for drunk driving convictions. But immigration officials released Montano, who allegedly killed Sister Denise Mosier and injured two other nuns in the Aug. 1 accident, on his own recognizance pending a deportation hearing.

“Regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on, or on this issue, we can all agree that if you are an illegal alien and you’ve committed a crime, that you should be deported afterward,” Stewart told Fox News on Friday. “But this guy had been twice handed over to immigration officials and twice released back into the community even though there was an immigration detainer on him. And of course he’s gone right back out and committed the same crime and killed a nun.”

Stewart accused the Obama administration of a policy of “deliberately underfunding and understaffing immigration enforcement” so that officials are left without detention facilities to place illegal aliens who are awaiting deportation after serving time for criminal convictions.

“I want the Obama administration to come clean with the American people about its policy of releasing illegal aliens who localities and other law enforcement officials have identified as illegal aliens who have committed crimes, and the Obama administration is simply turning around and releasing these dangerous individuals back into neighborhoods,” Stewart said.

Stewart said that he appreciates the nuns’ reaction to the accident, but he has a different mission.

“The Benedictine sisters, their mission is mercy and love, but my mission, as an elected official, is the protection of my residents and law enforcement. It is my duty and my obligation and I have a job to do and I’m going to do it,” he said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The head of the Republican Party on Friday urged members to step up their efforts for the fall elections amid cautious confidence about the GOP winning several governorships and perhaps seizing control of Congress from President Barack Obama’s party.

“We can’t rest now,” GOP chairman Michael Steele told the Republican National Committee. “Everything we’ve been doing, and all that we must do, needs to be ramped up and maxed out in the next three months.”

“Sleep? What’s that? We can’t sleep until November 3rd,” he added.

Steele did, however, try to rile up the committee and got a standing ovation with calls to fire House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “Get on the bus,” he yelled as a cardboard bus was pushed out onto the stage from which he spoke. It said: “Need a job? Fire Pelosi.”

Said Steele: “We have a lot of work to do but I believe we are ready to represent a transformative moment.”

The RNC’s internal politics hovered over the meeting

Update (8/7/10): Body Scanners Coming to JFK, Newark, LaGuardia airports – but TSA exempts Muslims so what’s the point?

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has taken transparency to a new level.

First, the TSA posted its entire Screening Management Standard Operating Procedure document online. The posting of that amateurishly redacted document was followed by the posting of a second document with the same redaction flaw – revealing more TSA baggage screening policies.

Terrorists, who no doubt have dissected the unredacted documents, have also been discussing ways to evade and beat airport scanners on jihadi forums:


“We have that system in place in Algiers…does anyone know if it’s capable of detecting [the flammable gas] butane?”

On another Jihadist site, a visitor questions security involving 3D scanners at British airports asking: “Can I refuse [to pass through] for religious reasons?”

Before long comes this answer: “…advise those who wish to avoid the Heathrow scanners to take the train to Paris… and then board a plane from there.”

The TSA website features a map and lists of locations to help terrorists determine which airports to avoid when planning to smuggle explosives aboard commercial airplanes. There’s also a video on CNN showing just how easy it is to beat TSA’s screenings.

Since terrorism isn’t limited to air travel, the TSA also lists other domestic U.S. locations where the scanning technology is used, primarily court houses and prisons. Might court houses and prisons be targets for Islamic terrorists

New budget requests are likely put 1,000 machines in the nation’s highest-risk airports by next year. However, body scanner screening is “optional for all passengers,” and this is due to the stealth jihad of Muslim Brotherhood groups in the United States (funded from outside the United States) – and was enacted to exempt the specific religious demographic that prompted the need for such advanced security.

From a May 2009 posting – well before the Christmas plane bombing attempt and faux fatwas to protect Islamic terrorists were issued; from a host of Muslim Brotherhood-linked stealth jihadists including MPAC, the Islamic Shura Council, and the Fiqh Council of North America:

After a series of meetings with interfaith leaders and advocacy organizations, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) this week agreed to make traveler compliance with the highly controversial “full body scanners” optional.

The welcome announcement came after a number of groups expressed concern over privacy and modesty issues, for themselves and their children, related to the advanced image technology machines. The TSA reassured the community representatives (Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, Chairman Fiqh Council of North America, Shakeel Syed, Executive Director Islamic Shura Council and Aziza Hassan, Director Government Relations of MPAC) in a meeting requested by the Islamic Shura Council to discuss the Islamic perspective on body scanners.

The Fiqh Council’s position for Muslims to avail “alternate screening options” remains good until such time TSA offers less invasive alternate technologies, said Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi.

The Islamic Shura Council will continue to coordinate with the TSA leadership of LAX Airports in regard to body scanner issues.

In other words, the Muslim Brotherhood is keeping the TSA and LAX sharia compliant in check (and we told you earlier this week they were keeping the LAPD and other California police departments in check too – video here). Also keep in mind LAX has been the target of Islamic terrorists before and history proves the jihad likes to target the same site until it is successful.

It all seems too easy. Islamic terrorists have every advantage. They don’t even have to work for information. They are exempt from the security measures in place to thwart and catch them. And their “peaceful” co-religionists aid and abet them. As does the U.S. government.

NOTE :The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced that the hotly debated machines will be installed at Newark Liberty, John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia international airports in September. TSA officials contend that the technology allows security screeners to see non-metal weapons like explosives that go undetected by existing metal detectors.

Only passengers that are flagged for extra security screenings are asked to go stand in the machines for imaging.

~An interesting thing I would like to add on Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, former president of the Islamic Society of North America, states the following: Fatwa of Mufti Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi

Apologists or Extremists Muzammil Siddiqi

Muzammil Siddiqi was born in India in 1943 and studied at Aligarh Muslim University and Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama in Lucknow. After receiving a graduate degree in Arabic and Islamic Studies at the Islamic University of Medina in Saudi Arabia, he went on to earn an M.A. in Theology from Birmingham University in England and a Ph.D. in Comparative Religion from Harvard University.[1]

He is the director Islamic Society of Orange County (ISOC)[2] and was formerly the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) from 1997 to 2000.[3] He still serves on ISNA’s board of directors and is Chairman of the ISNA affiliated North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).[4]

ISNA’s founders had roots in the Muslim Brotherhood. In addition, Siddiqi’s public statements range from endorsing laws in countries where homosexuality is punishable by death to wishing for Sharia law to govern America.

ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas-support trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). The society was listed among entities that were part of the Muslim Brotherhood structure in America. In a statement issued during the trial, ISNA said it “is not now nor has it ever been subject to the control of any other domestic or international organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood.”[5]

However, ISNA was mentioned repeatedly in internal Brotherhood documents from the late 1980s and early 1990s seized by federal law enforcement officials and introduced at the HLF trial.

Federal law enforcement officials are praising Somali-Americans for their help in an investigation which resulted in the indictment Thursday of 14 people on charges of providing money, services and personnel to the terrorist organization al-Shabaab. A large part of the credit goes to Abdirizak Bihi, a Somali community leader in Minneapolis who persevered despite opposition from the Council on American-Islamic Relations and hostile mosque leaders.

Bihi, whose teenage nephew was killed after he went to fight for al-Shabaab last year, persuaded Somali families to cooperate with the FBI’s investigation of al-Shabaab. He expressed hope that the legal process may provide answers about the disappearances of 20 teenagers and young men from the area who went to Somalia since 2007 to fight for al-Shabaab, which is affiliated with al Qaida.

In an interview with the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Bihi noted that two of those indicted Thursday – Amina Farah Ali and Hawo Mohamed Hassan of Rochester, Minn. – are accused of raising funds for al-Shabaab fighters while claiming it was money for humanitarian purposes.

Bihi, whose teenage nephew was killed after he went to fight for al-Shabaab last year, persuaded Somali families to cooperate with the FBI’s investigation of al-Shabaab. He expressed hope that the legal process may provide answers about the disappearances of 20 teenagers and young men from the area who went to Somalia since 2007 to fight for al-Shabaab, which is affiliated with al Qaida.

In an interview with the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Bihi noted that two of those indicted Thursday – Amina Farah Ali and Hawo Mohamed Hassan of Rochester, Minn. – are accused of raising funds for al-Shabaab fighters while claiming it was money for humanitarian purposes.

He said the indictments confirm what many local Somalis have long suspected: that al-Shabaab operatives have been raising money from them under false pretenses by “playing the victim card.”

Somalis have been approached in mosques and in their homes by women carrying pictures of sick people in Somalia and asking for donations to help them. These women claim they are soliciting funds “for Allah” or for purposes like building mosques in Somalia, Bihi said.

Somalis have a tradition of volunteerism, he said, and are leery of giving money to charity. They were also suspicious of the fact that the solicitors did all of their business in cash, giving the community no way to verify where the money went.

Bihi, who has lived in Minneapolis since 1996, told the FBI that for years, Somalis were intimidated into silence about jihadist fundraising in local mosques. The questionable activity has been taking place since 2003, he said, so it predates the rise of al-Shabaab and the Islamic Courts Union, which dominated the Somali government in 2006.

The leadership at the Abubakar as-Saddique mosque in Minneapolis bears much of the blame for stifling would-be whistleblowers, Bihi said, because they ridiculed and discredited anyone who questioned fundraising practices there. The mosque leadership and its allies would talk to mainstream media outlets in the United States and appear on television in Somalia to accuse community members of lying when they raised the issue. They would also falsely accuse those speaking out of being “anti-Islam,” he said.

Mosque leaders also tried to discourage parents from speaking out when young Somalis began disappearing in 2007 – warning that if they talked to the FBI, their children will be incarcerated at a detention facility like Guantanamo Bay. Bihi singled out the local CAIR chapter for criticism, after the group discouraged families from cooperating with law enforcement.

“We were the first [Muslim community in the United States] to stand up to them,” Bihi said regarding CAIR’s objections to Somalis talking to the FBI without a lawyer. He was referring to this 2009 protest by Somali families outside a July 4 CAIR event.

Bihi believes the tide has turned and Somalis in the Minneapolis area are willing to speak out against al-Shabaab and demand answers from the mosque leadership. Al-Shabaab used to be able to dominate community discussion of Somalia issues.

“There was a lot of fear. No one would speak up” against al-Shabaab, he said. But today, “the community is against al-Shabaab” and “people who used to attack us and call us names to discredit us” have gone silent.

Three other indictments were unsealed Thursday in connection with al-Shabaab fundraising. In Alabama, prosecutors announced a superseding indictment of Omar Hammami, (AKA Abu Mansur al-Amriki), a U.S. citizen who has become a senior al-Shabaab military commander. Jehad Serwan, a U.S. citizen, was indicted in the Southern District of California and charged with providing material support to the group. And in Minnesota, authorities made public a superseding indictment charging 10 defendants with, among other things, providing material support to al-Shabaab and “conspiring to kill, maim and injure persons abroad.”

The indictments “shed further light on a deadly pipeline that has routed funding and fighters to the al-Shabaab terror organization from cities across the United States,” Attorney General Eric Holder said. “These arrests and charges should serve as an unmistakable warning to others considering joining or supporting terrorist groups like al-Shabaab: If you choose this route, you can expect to find yourself in a U.S. jail cell or a casualty on a battlefield in Somalia.”
