Visa Fraud on Embassy Row

I know this sounds like an oxymoron but this is a bit different. This is a chauffeur service run by an Indonesian on an A2 Visa. Why are there special visas to fulfill a need for chauffeurs? I’d like to know what senator slipped that boner into a bill which was probably unrelated to immigration.

H/T to The Stein Report. From Legal Times:

For diplomats from the embassies of Jordan, Brunei, and Benin, Hendarmin Mansoer was the chauffeur who shuttled them through Washington, D.C.’s teeming traffic. To U.S. Embassy officials overseas, however, Mansoer had assumed the identities of some of those same diplomats in a visa-fraud scheme that exploited weaknesses in U.S. border security.

When investigators searched Mansoer’s home in Silver Spring, Md., they recovered stolen embassy letterhead stationery, stamps containing official embassy seals, embassy employment records, and even passports belonging to ambassadors and other embassy personnel from Benin, Brunei, and Jordan. Some of the seized documents included Mansoer’s scrawled handwriting from his practice at forging diplomats’ signatures.

snip….Mansoer, a 44-year-old Indonesian citizen who held an A-2 diplomatic visa through his embassy jobs, filed 63 fraudulent visa applications with U.S. Embassies in Indonesia and Pakistan for scores of paying clients and relatives. Nineteen Indonesians successfully entered the United States after receiving A-3 diplomatic visas from Mansoer, fooling U.S. Embassy officials with false claims they had been hired as housekeepers by diplomats at the three embassies where he worked.

Don’t you feel all safe and cozy with our Immigration officials at work?
