    ICE attorney arrested for alleged immigrant bribes
    The Associated Press
    Friday, June 27, 2008; 8:54 AM

    LOS ANGELES — An attorney for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and his wife were arrested on suspicion of accepting thousands of dollars from both legal and illegal immigrants in exchange for immigration benefits, authorities said.

    ICE Assistant Chief Counsel Constantine Peter Kallas, 38, and wife Maria Kallas, 39, both of Alta Loma, were arrested Thursday at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino, where authorities believed they were accepting such a bribe, U.S. Attorney spokesman Thom Mrozek said in a statement.

    A search warrant affidavit said the couple, using a pair of companies they had set up, filed false employment petitions with federal authorities for 45 illegal immigrants and two legal permanent residents.

    “The egregious acts of corruption alleged in this case are extremely disturbing to those of us who have sworn to serve the United States,” U.S. Attorney Thomas P. O’Brien said in a written statement. “As a law enforcement official, Mr. Kallas abused his position in the Department of Homeland Security simply to line his own pockets.”

    The search warrant affidavit said about $950,000 beyond Constantine Kallas’ salary had been deposited in the pair’s bank accounts since 2000.

    The couple was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy, bribery, making false statements and making a false statement in an immigration application.

    Attempts to reach an attorney for the couple early Friday morning were unsuccessful.

    They were expected to make their first court appearance in a U.S. District Court in Santa Ana on Friday.

    Kallas has worked for ICE since 1998, but had been on unpaid leave since January, 2007.

    I am picking Germany to win. Who do you like Krusty? To me, European soccer is enjoyable to watch - have to admit I can’t stand the MLS game, and I don’t know why.

    BTW, will you have extra chalupas on hand in case the game goes to penalty kicks?

    Unfortunately, it’ll be a long time before a DC resident will be able to get a handgun. There are no gun stores in DC, and I read that there are only 2 people licensed to sell guns in DC.

    DC officials are gonna make it virtually impossible to buy one via regulations and licensing restrictions.

    The DC vs. Heller ruling was a good one, but they will use anything they can to get around it.

    Che’ - Wow, another Fussball fan!

    I hope Spain wins. They certainly played beautifully the last half against Russia. I’ll be rooting for the Spaniards. Ole! (they are cuter than the Germans:))

    Hope the “official” game doesn’t end in a tie because I really hate it when a game has to be decided by penalty kicks.

    Yes, European soccer is a lot of fun to watch. The players are on the move all the time, and the game goes on even when somebody lies flat on the grass. The ball handling skills are fantastic to watch.

    I haven’t met up with a chalupa yet but if Spain wins, I might try to find that delicacy.

    Krutis,

    Chalupas are an American creation, much the same as General Tso’s Chicken at the “Chinese” restaurants. If you really want to celebrate authentically, head on down to Total Wine and buy any wine from “Red Guitar”. The Tampanilla Red is excellent, and a great way to celebrate the win. I too am rooting for Spain!

    Here’s my letter to John McCain. He sent me a nice picture of himself
    and his wife as inspiration to help him get into the White House. I sent
    the whole letter back with quotes circled and underlined.

    June 25, 2008

    Senator John McCain,
    P.O. Box 7802
    Merrifield, Va. 22116

    Dear Senator McCain,

    I have received your letter, requesting that I join your campaign
    efforts to help you become our next President.
    I was prepared to do just that, until I learned of your private meetings with Hispanic leaders, telling them that you will fight for “comprehensive immigration reform”. I understand that this is code language for all out amnesty for all the illegal aliens now in this country. And eventually their family members who they can bring to America later.
    I am offended that you would pander to people that come into our
    country illegally, and “fight” for their “rights”. Your first priority is to the
    legal citizens of this country. Your second priority is to the legal citizens
    of this country. And your third priority is to the legal citizens of this country.
    Those here illegally should be NOT be on ANY list coming from your office.
    I will tell you why I am so disappointed in your actions.
    My husband and I own a small remodeling company in Northern Virginia. We have been struggling for the last 5 years, but in the last two years, we have seen our business decline drastically. We have had our estimates cut in half by “other contractors”. This simply could not be, if those “contractors” had Workmans Compensation and Liability insurance, insurance on all their vehicles, a proper license, paid for all of their materials, matched Social Security taxes on their employees and paid their employees the going rate.
    I see the mobs of day laborers waiting for work, and some localities have even pandered to them more by giving them shelters where they can be picked up for their tax free work. I find this unbelievable. If I bullied a business (7/11) into being my place of choice to steal work from Americans, would you help me, too?
    These people make a mockery of what it means to live and work here in America. Their antics have become so commonplace and accepted that I cannot bid on work anymore. All a homeowner has to do is go to his neighborhood 7/11 and pick up 5 or 6 guys to get his deck built, or house painted. I am sickened everytime I see these people hanging out waiting to STEAL MY WORK FROM ME and taking money right out of my pocket. I might as well drive up to them and hand them my money.
    That is what you are doing by letting this go on for way too long. I want an end to it. I want our borders secured, and absolutely NO AMNESTY for ANYONE that thinks they can come here and take what they want without any consequence.
    These are not people that want to be Americans and adapt to our way of living. They bring their culture with them, their language, and we stupid Americans let them live their third world life right here in our neighborhoods.
    Your letter speaks of how you try your best to tell the truth, that you are honest to us. I see your recent meetings as a slap in the face to us hard working Americans, that have worked for everything we have, and obey our nations laws in the process. You have lost my trust completely. And my family will not vote for you in November.
    If you are being “honest” about being responsive to the concerns of Americans, you are surely losing ground by giving away our country to people that have no right to be here, no right to work here, and no right to take my way of life away from me and my family. If you need votes that badly, and you have to promise these people a passage to citizenship to get their votes, then you have no confidence in the American people, and I am totally offended by that.
    Don’t work on giving everyone here in America the “sublime honor” of being an American citizen. They don’t deserve it. They haven’t worked for it and they surely don’t want to assimilate into what American life is. They will be laughing all the way to the post office when they send their tax free money back to their home countries.
    I am returning your nicely written letter, promising me what? I’m not sure if I’ve figured it out yet. Only because what you say and what you do are two different things.
    Please don’t send me any more of your empty promises. Keep America safe from her enemies by shutting down our border. Do not give any sort of amnesty to anyone here illegally in our country. That would be a betrayal beyond words.
    Senator McCain, I will not be helping you become our next President, unless I hear some strong language from you about ending the illegal alien crisis in this country, about securing our borders, about letting state and local governments use the 287g program, and sending a strong message to those here illegally that their meal ticket has expired. And that they need to go home.

    Sincerely,

    Unless a suspected illegal kills someone, police won’t (don’t have to - told not to) check their papers or lack of. Resolution appears to now be a “paper tiger.”

    Current status on the Rule of Law Resolution: On July 1, all persons arrested will have their immigration status checked, regardless of probable cause. All persons not arrested may have their immigration status checked at an officer’s discretion under a “reasonable suspicion” standard.

    I appreciate your outrage and commend you for writing.

    However, your letter was far too long. Whoever opened it and saw line after line after line might have read the opening word of each paragraph, m a y b e.

    It’s necessary to be brief in order to catch someone’s eye and make an impression. I looked at you letter and have to admit that I didn’t read every word; too long. Better to write several short letters and compartmentalize your complaints. IMHO.

    Hope you take it as positive criticism, MadMom, in the spirit in which it is written.

    Does anyone know who built the homes along Lomond Drive (West Gate of Lomond)?

    I believe it’s the Hylton Group (same company that built most of the houses in Dale City), does anyone know for sure?

    I figure someone on here would know the answer to this obscure question!

    Why then did the police refuse to check the immigration status of the drivers involved in two accidents that were posted on this blog late last week or early this week. One accident was on Sudley Road and the other was at the Westgate giant. If I am correct, both accidents involved Latinos who refused to show ID and left the scene. The police were called in one incident and was told the Latino driver would not provide identification and left the scene. The police dispatcher refused to take the license number of the car in question. I would think that not providing a driver’s license or showing valid identification would be “reasonable suspicion.” Apparently the Police Dept. did NOT!

    Krutis,
    Thanks for the heads up. Next time I will know better and break it up
    a bit. I was trying to touch on the points he was making in his FOUR PAGE
    letter to me….

    Did anyone see the article in the MJM about the accident on PW Parkway
    where someone was killed running a red light. It states that the 2 passengers in his truck were day laborers just picked up from a 7/11……

    At 6:50 this evening, Coverstone 7/11. 6 guys “hanging out” at this point, cant’ possilby be looking for work. One throws his trash over his shoulder and over the fence behind him….

    Did anyone notice the black trash bags hanging on the fence every 10 feet or so? (same 7/11) Seems this guy didn’t know or understand what a trash bag is for…..

    Question: can I call the police when these guys are still there say after
    5pm? How ’bout every day? I’d really like to call every day.

    Anon, the new procedures go into effect on July 1. Between the time the resolution was revised and July 1, Chief Deane rescinded all guidance and pretty much put the PWCPD in a holding pattern. That was NOT a responsible thing to do in my opinion, but it’s what we ended up with.

    I’d like to take more of a look on those incidents you mentioned however. Do you have links? I haven’t been keeping up with the MJM that much lately.

    Leaving the scene of an accident (private property or state maintained roadways) without providing personal information is a hit & run offense. There is plenty the police should have done. A police officer should have been dispatched and the latino driver who has arrived in our country to only provide for his family and do the jobs that Americans won’t do, should have been arrested for refusing to provide his information, and then leaving the scene of an accident. This is an arrestable misdemeanor offense if only property damage occurs, and a felony if injury is involved.

    Greg, the above incident from DPortM is the other accident I was referring to in my 11:50 pm post. I can’t find the original post as it appears to have been removed. I belive it was posted last week. The incident at the Westgate Giant was sent in response to the 234 incident. The facts as stated in my 11:50 pm post are accurate as the incident happened to my wife. After the police were called per instructions from my insurance company to my wife and refused to take the information, my insurance company was informed of the fact and they were “astounded” that the police would not follow up.
