Danny Noriego Doesn't Like ICE

[Moxley Confidential] Why are government officials protecting an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who almost killed an innocent Anaheim man?

In the aftermath, Anaheim PD and ICE have refused to tell Nick O'Malley, Noriega's attorney, what happened or identity the shooter. Over government objections, O'Malley is seeking to enforce a subpoena to get answers. Officials say they are entitled to keep the information a secret because, they claim, there's an ongoing investigation into filing charges against Noriega.

Both assertions are malarkey. Government officials know exactly what happened. This unidentified ICE agent, who hadn't done adequate preparation work, prematurely locked himself into the erroneous belief that he'd found a fugitive, failed to identify himself in an incident he provoked near an elementary school, fired his weapon at an unarmed person, lost the suspect, and then looked for an excuse to mask his own incompetence.

How can I make such a statement? Even before Noriega made his 911 call, Anaheim PD officials knew ICE had botched the operation. One police official with insider knowledge described the shooting as "FUBAR"—fucked up beyond all recognition.

ICE and Anaheim PD won't admit it publicly, but the man they'd been looking for wasn't Noriega, the father of a 4-year-old girl. They'd been looking for Juan Carlos Alcala, a 38-year-old, Costa Mesa-based, major international cocaine dealer and fugitive with a federal warrant for his arrest. At the time the ICE agent took his shot at Noriega, Alcala was more than 120 miles south in Mexico.

Nine days after the Noriega fiasco, immigrant officials finally got the right man when Alcala crossed into the U.S. Earlier this month in a federal court in Texas, he pleaded guilty to cocaine-distribution and money-laundering counts. Whenever he's sentenced, he'll face a maximum punishment of life in prison, plus $8.5 million in fines.

Still, despite the dramatic developments, Noriega and O'Malley remain in the dark. Officials won't tell them what happened, except that the mystery agent remains on the job. On April 17, Orange County Superior Court Judge William Monroe will decide whether to force the government to come clean.

Who's the suspect fool? The suspect or the one who follows him?

The only thing worse than screwing the pooch, is trying to deny that you screwed the pooch. The local law enforcement agencies are wrong for helping cover up the FUBAR by ICE. Instead of rationalizing and trying to find some off the wall justification, the ICE Agent needs to man up and admit he made a mistake, didn't follow procedures, used excessive force and take his medicine. The Judge hearing the case will likely see it that way. That clinking sound you hear is the cash register paying out our tax dollars to Mr. Noriega in his Civil Suit. .

Only the Constitutional TEA PARTY can save us now from the Socialist agenda of the Obama and his Czars in the administration. A major agenda of this government is to slyly pass a backdoor amnesty for illegal aliens, who have not only committed their first offense by entering a sovereign country without permission, but to get work they either made up a social security number, but would likely stolen an innocent Americans ID. This is a Felony and the President Obama, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano, are ignoring this criminal violation. Currently the amnesty that Obama administration is proposed is to make it easier for illegal aliens who are family members of American citizens to apply for legal permanent residency. This is a absolute travesty when millions of foreign nationals, wait in their countries sometime for years, to be granted a visa. Only Congress can change the laws governing naturalization and Citizenship—NOT OBAMA AND HIS FLOCK OF CZARS.

This is a political ploy of the Obama government to gain political points, for the presidential race in November. Also seen is the Liberal Democrats attitude that anybody should be allowed to vote, including some of the 20 million illegal migrants and immigrants living here already. It is no stretch of the imagination to be aware that if states do not pass laws, that at least one piece of official ID, such as a drivers license the door is wide open for significant voter fraud, especially in a close race. Democrats and their pushers of special interest groups will do anything in their power to halt states from enacting official government ID laws, to be shown when voting.

A financial calamity is at hand, if we don't start singling out bad politicians, Governors, Mayors and public elected officials who are pro-illegal alien, such as Governor Chaffee of Rhode Island, and Chief of Police Beck of Los Angeles California. These officials are everywhere and must be thrown out of office, before they do more financial damage. These personages are pandering to the illegal alien organizations such as La Raza, Mecha and many other minorities. They are just a small part of our elected officials who see no wrong in passing on the cost of public welfare programs, to taxpayers.

That illegal immigration and their riding on the citizenship of their children is costing a estimated $113 Billion dollars annually and still rising out of your pocket. This is not an immobile dollar figure as millions of legal entries are granted entry documents annually, Only the Conservative TEA PARTY, governed by U.S. Constitution have the ability, to throw out corrupt and the senile lawmakers and vote into office young, honest legislators who rid Washington of the rot that has entrenched there. Only the American taxpaying public has the vote to end massive financial issues like "Obamacare" that will fine you if you don't enroll in a health care package, while the flakes and parasites get the whole package free. I’m sure we will pay for every destitute person and anybody who slips across the insecure border or arrives here legally/illegally by jet to stay.

These people have figured there way to get subsidized government housing and many on welfare drive more expensive cars than average Americans. The same with Obama's push to pass an overflow of poverty from other countries, that taxpayer will also pay to the IRS. Americans must demand mandatory E-Verify, Secure Communities, the 287 G program from Congress, as our jobs are at stake. We must also rescind all Sanctuary city ordinances, chain migration, dream acts and any form of Amnesty. We must remove the Obama administration, before we become a nation of beggars, in the eyes of the world?

Um if you fire at someone with no justification and no reason is the idea that "anything is a reason" justification enough? You tell me.

"there's an ongoing investigation into filing charges against Noriega".

And for what? Because one of your own ICE agents fired at a man unprovoked after he dropped his girlfriends kid off at school and was waiting at a stop sign when the ICE agent jumped from his car and fired a shot at Noriega:

Noriega: "I didn't know if he was going to try to shoot me again".

Actually, ICE has been worming its way into even domestic drug cases,

http://www.vdare.com/posts/ice...

Probably because its top brass -- Director Morton, and of course Holder and Obama, have been sending the message that they will not enforce 'mere' immigration law. After all, ICE could probably find gainful employment for all of its agents just by raiding a few Home Deport parking lots, chatting up the lawn guys in South OC, or investigating a few landscaping contractors. But since those illegal aliens merely suck the tax money from state coffers, their crime is ignored.

ICE enforces Immigration & Customs....this includes drug smuggling/distribution, anti-terrorism, money laundering, intellectual property rights....the list goes on and on. Basically any violation of law that has some nexus to a boarder.
