> Armenians in the USA have committed some "deportable" acts but who wants a ticket back to that place? Apparently the feeling is mutual.

Here's one person's solution, though who it was and what she/he did to be adjudged removable is unstated...

If you are looking for any serious ethnicly and religiously motivated crimes , just take a look at Turkish criminality in the West . Without any exaggeration it is one of the most serious threats the West faces. So instead of examining one Armenian fraudster discovered by you after a long Google search let's consider the threat in some details that massive Turkish criminality poses to entire countries and cultures in Europe.

There is an interesting analysis that explores this broad problem. Let me quote a few passages from it to illustrate its real proportions and dire implications.

"Turkish organized crime groups function primarily as coordinators, financiers, and facilitators in the drug trade. Their experience in areas such as transportation, company formation, and facilitation management is used for organized crime activities in illegal immigration and trafficking in human beings. Turkey is an important transit country for illegal immigration to the European Union [...]. Turkish organized crime groups are known to be involved in an array of legal businesses that are likely to be a method of laundering proceeds from heroin trafficking. [...]

Germany is a central redistribution point within Europe. Once heroin reaches Germany, it is repackaged and shipped on from there to the other major European markets, especially Britain and Scandinavia. Moreover, some of the leaders of the Turkish syndicates resided in Germany in the 1990's and the country became a center of gravity for Turkish organized crime [...]

Turkish organized crime groups are usually hierarchical and homogeneous, but over the years they have formed some enduring partnerships with other organized crime groups in Europe. Many Turks involved in the drug trade the Europe are long-term residents within their host countries, which assists them in developing links with non-Turkish organized crime groups and in their move to other areas of crime. In this respect, collaboration between Turkish and Albanian groups in particular has proved beneficial in exploiting large segments of the European market, in many different fields of illegal business [...]

The major sources of criminal proceeds in Turkey are drug trafficking, smuggling, fraud, bankruptcy, document forgery, pillage, highway robbery, kidnapping, and "serious crimes against the state," [...]

The general outlook for Turkish organized crime groups is a continuation of their strong role in the contemporary European environment as well as in Turkey.

The heroin trade is mainly in the hands of second generation Turks residing in Germany who collaborate strongly with their Albanian counterparts in a variety of schemes. Interesting trends in the operation of these groups include their diversification into the synthetic narcotics market, with the Netherlands as an epicenter. "

If I compare an Armenian you've mentioned with an army of professional Turkish thugs, murderers, robebrs, human traffickers and drug dealers and heroine barons who ravage and depopulate Western Europe , the comparison strongly reminds me of Mathew 7.5 "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye". Sorry for not finding any apt Quranic quote that would be no doubt much nearer and dearer to your Moslem heart and mind.
