This is the woman in charge of the local San Bernadino office of USCIS. Following the deadly San Bernadino terrorist attacks, the DHS was investigating Enrique Marquez, who was later discovered to have been the illegal strawman purchaser of the weapons used in the attacks.

Irene Martin heads the San Bernardino U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office, where last December, she allegedly blocked five armed Department of Homeland Security agents from the man authorities say supplied the firepower in the deadly attack a day earlier. Although an Inspector General's report found she acted improperly, and then lied to investigators, FoxNews.com has learned she has been nominated for the Secretary’s Award for Valor.


FYI, lying to a federal investigator is a felony offense. Yet, she gets awarded the distinction typically reserved for acts of valor and self sacrifice. What a political joke this has become. Yes, let us award her for blocking a terror investigation, and committing a felony. Only in the world of a warped and twisted administration is this considered acceptable. It makes me wonder who ordered this award to be given to her, and why? It sure was not for her acts of valor and self sacrifice.

ETA:


The report noted DHS agents were sent to the USCIS building to arrest Marquez, who authorities were frantically trying to track down the day after the terror attack at an office Christmas party. Marquez, it turned out, had not shown up for his scheduled appointment at the USCIS building, but Martin kept agents waiting 30 minutes before meeting with them, and another hour before she turned over the USCIS file on Marquez.


In addition, was Marquez "tipped off" by her office? Is that the reason on that day, he was a no show to that scheduled meeting?

Looks like she is perfect for an award.

Government failures should always get blue ribbons.
