Illegal alien: I can't believe I got away with this

Finnish man headed home because of fraud
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A man who deceived Americans for decades is set to return to his native Finland.

Pentii Reino Tuomi, 58, used at least 16 aliases and false Social Security numbers as he hopped from one state to another performing a variety of jobs.

But Tuomi admits that even he couldn't believe some of the things he got away with.

"How does an illegal alien do security?" he said of the job he got escorting Mondale. At the time, he was working for a Burbank Studios security company that set him up on the job, he said. And he was using the identity of a friend's dead brother, Gary Thompson — the same identity he later used in Oregon to apply for Social Security and other benefits.

Teacher: Now class, how did he get away with this?

Student: *raises hand* Oooh, oooh, I know, I know, pick me, pick me...

Teacher: Yes Daniel?

Student: Because our federal government is derelict in their duty and our own state government actively helps criminal aliens?

Teacher: That's exactly right Daniel.

I think that I know the answer...
if you check out the ICE home page, you will see them brag how good that they are, however you'll notice that most of the bragging is about the drug busts.
Department of Detention and Removal(DRO) the small dept of ICE who is looking for illegal aliens

besides, according to the statesman Journal ICE, is not actively looking for illegal aliens... in their own words, "we have bigger priorities"

I used to attend the same church as this man, and know him personally. He's truly sorry for what he did, and I have to give him props for turning himself in. He knows he has to face the consequences for his actions, and I agree that he deserves whatever punishment the government gives him. But on a personal level, I still consider him a friend.

Where are the criminal apologists now?

Apparently you are racist.

"...There has been more and more anti-immigrant sentiment lately. And by anti-immigrant, I mean anti-Mexican. I'm sick of it. It's time to call this what it is: racism."

Time to say good by to Bradbury ...
