New York Woman's Request of Obama Leads to Immigration Arrest


www.foxnews.com

A woman who wrote President Barack Obama, asking for help resolving her husband's immigration problem got a response she didn't expect: Federal agents turned up at her New York City home and took her husband to jail.

Officials tell The New York Times that Caroline Jamieson's letter to the president was mistakenly forwarded to an immigration fugitive unit. After the newspaper inquired about the case, the man, Herve Fonkou Takoulo, was released.

Takoulo is an engineer from Cameroon. He came to the U.S. legally, but was ordered to leave when a judge rejected his application for political asylum. Now he has a second green card application pending based on his 2005 marriage to Jamieson.

Still, the deportation order remains in effect.

I'm sure that it was "mistakenly" forwarded to the immigration fugitive unit. It looks like someone in the mail room at the White House doesn't agree with Obama's relaxed policies on immigration.

What really gets me about this, is that the NYT enquired about the incident and the guy was immediately released. Why is that?

Immediatley released? Well, if they deport him, he'll only come back again anyway like most of the other illegals. Enforce our laws now! Control the border! Contact your representatives and vote out the idiots who arn't doing their job in protecting the American people.

Usually a routine procedure when an individual has an application pending.

I'm sure he was issued a court date to answer for the deportation charges.

He was already denied asylum and was already ordered to be deported, so he was an immigrant fugitive. Then, when the NYT gets involved, he gets to do another application? Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for the guy that he gets another chance, I just don't like how it was done on the other end. Each time somebody cuts the line, it's like a big "F-U" to everyone who has busted their tail and waited for ever to do it right.
