Mexican actress pleads not guilty to sham marriage

Post to Twitter

A Mexican actress and her American husband, whom she wed allegedly in an illegal bid to gain legal U.S. residency, pleaded not guilty Monday to federal charges of engaging in a sham marriage, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Maria Fernanda Romero Martinez Delfuego Ramirez Rodriguez Cadena Sanchez Gonzales Morales Qintanilla McDougal McTavish Einstein Barrymore and Kent Stuart Ross, who were married in 2005, were indicted last week on marriage fraud and related charges, said Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles.

The suspects, both 28 years old, were arrested in April and released on bond.

Romero has appeared in various films, including the 2008 supernatural thriller “The Eye,” as well as in print and television advertising campaigns, according to an affidavit filed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

According to the affidavit, a witness told authorities that Romero paid $5,000 to Ross, a musician and former pizza delivery man, to participate in the bogus marriage.

Foreign spouses of U.S. citizens are eligible for legal residency status, work permits and eventually citizenship.

The federal investigation began after Romero’s ex-boyfriend, Markus Klinko, a fashion photographer, alerted immigration authorities to the alleged scam, the affidavit stated.

Conviction of marriage fraud carries a sentence of up to five years in federal prison.

Texas School Suspends Student For Taking Down Mexican Flag

Post to Twitter

From Michael Berry on 740 KRTH Radio

Local School Suspends Student for Removing MEXICAN Flag

Yesterday, a listener’s son was offended that his school, Klein Collins High School, displayed the Mexican flag prominently. His mother called to complain, and the school wouldn’t return her call. The student took the sign down.

The school pitched a fit, reviewed the surveillance tapes, found the student, and suspended him for 3 days. AND he has to pay for the flag. In light of the SF story of students sent home for wearing the AMERICAN flag because it offended the Hispanic students, I thought you’d like to know about a story closer to home.

Right here in our community. Feel free to let the school know what you think. You pay their salaries.

Klein Collins High School (832) 484.5500. Assistant Principal handling the case: Mr. Shelly Dick. Seriously.

Call Mr. Dick and let him have it. The Superintendent is Jim Cain.

You realize, I assume, that if a student removed – or even burned – the AMERICAN flag, they wouldn’t do anything about it, I’ll bet.

American Flag Tee Shirts Start Firestorm at Live Oak High School

Post to Twitter

I have been reading a lot of articles about the controversy started at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill California. The principal, Miguel Rodriguez, thought that he should send some kids home for daring to wear shirts and bandanas emblazoned with the dreaded American flag on Cinco de Mayo.

Principal Rodriguez dropped the ball here.He should have stopped being “Super Mexican” and let the kids wear the flag shirts. Doing things that attack American principles and beliefs is like pissing up a rope. I have been saying it here for years. If you want to piss off real Americans, walk around waving a Mexican flag and proclaiming the greatness of Mexico.

I say real American, because there are a lot of “Mexican Americans” here in California that show little or no loyalty to America. Some even have the audacity to fly Mexican flags over the state of California flag at their homes.

Reading stories about how some of the Hispanic kids at Live Oak and parents were “offended” by these kids and their attire is ridiculous. Offended?

So let me get this straight. Every time Latinos are pissed off for any reason, they protest and wave Mexican flags . . . and thats okay.

But let anyone show any loyalty to America, THE COUNTRY YOU LIVE IN, and your offended. Only in America.

US officials: Tijuana drug lord captured

Post to Twitter

drug wars in Mexico

For those of you too wrapped up in your daily existence to pay attention to world news,  Mexico is more dangerous than Iraq for Americans that travel to Mexico.   Tijuana is a war zone,  and people are being murdered at an alarming rate.   There are Mexican nationals here in California and Arizona that are being kidnapped and killed because of the drug wars going on in Mexico.    Just a bit of news to brighten your day.

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) – Alleged Tijuana drug kingpin Teodoro “El Teo” Garcia Simental—considered to be one of Mexico’s most violent traffickers—was arrested Tuesday on the Baja California peninsula, U.S. and Mexican officials said.

Garcia Simental was arrested at 5 a.m. (8 a.m. EST; 1300 GMT), said Amy Roderick, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in San Diego, California. She said she had no other details.

A U.S. official and a Mexican law enforcement official said he was captured in La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur state. He is the second alleged major drug lord to be taken down in less than a month by President Felipe Calderon’s government.

Neither the U.S. nor the Mexican official was authorized to give a name for publication.

Garcia is considered to be among the country’s most vicious kingpins. Officials say he was to blame for many of the beheaded bodies found dumped in Tijuana and that he ordered hundreds of bodies to be dissolved in acid.

He is listed among Mexico’s 24 most-wanted drug lords and the government had offered $2.1 million for information leading to his arrest.

Officials say Garcia was a cartel lieutenant who broke away from the Arellano Felix gang following the arrest of its leader, Benjamin Arellano Felix, and the death of his brother, Raul.

Garcia formed his own gang, which was zealous in killing street-corner peddlers as he tried to solidify his control of eastern Tijuana. He is believed to be allied with the Sinaloa cartel, run by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, according to an army document dated February 2009.

His arrest comes on the heels of another triumph for Calderon’s drug war. Mexican marines killed reputed kingpin Arturo Beltran Leyva on Dec. 16 during a raid on an apartment complex in Cuernavaca, south of Mexico City.

Federal officials on Jan. 2 arrested his brother Carlos Beltran Leyva in another blow to the gang.

Calderon’s government has sent more than 45,000 troops to drug hotspots to confront the cartels. Cartels have responded with a vengeance, unleashing unprecedented killings. More than 15,500 people have died from drug violence since 2006. The government says most of the dead are smugglers.
