in response to reader comment: Outraged!

I've been trying for over two years to get the government to act in removing an Illegal Lebanese man that came to the U.S., was deported, went to Canada, got his citizenship there and returned here to the U.S. and has stayed.

My daughter met him in 1996, they married in 1998, she believed that he was divorced from his Lebanese wife, but learned in mid 2004, when an Arabic document came to the house and she had his niece read it to her that he had just gotten the marriage annulled. They have a six year old son, they seperated when she learned their marriage was not legal and he was here illegally. She felt so used and lives in fear for her safety and that of her son. She is afraid that he will take their son and leave the country, as he has threatened to do to both she and my self.

She has borrowed large sums of money to protect herself and her son throught the courts to no avail. Even with the judge, knowing he was here illegally, he has allowed un-supervised visitation. He has been in contempt of court for almost two years, yet she can't get a hearing on the contempt order. He has admitted that he was still married to his Lebanese wife, yet has filed for annulment of this marriage to keep from being charged with bigamy. With the weight his attorney has with the courts (judges), he will probably get it.

This man is here illegally, his brother is a convicted felon, convicted of smuggling cigarettes from N.C. to Mich. when he was arrested there, he faked a heart attack and cut a deal with the FBI giving them the names of the 17 arrested and convicted in Charlotte of smuggling cigarettes, money laundering, fraudulent marriages and funneling money to terrorist group Hezbollah, because he's on the informants list, the authorities won't take action. The FBI stated if they did anything serious, they would take action. I asked, if smuggling cigarettes, money laundering in opening two cigar stores with profits from illegal acts, fraudulent marriage, funneling money to Hezbollah, and being here illegally weren't serious, would they please tell me what was.

I've written to the V. P., ICE, FBI, INS, etc...yet our government won't take any action and remove these two from our country. How can a convicted felon get his citizenship? Shouldn't he have been deported when he was convicted instead of being put on the FBI's Informant list?

The big laugh here is that another member of the group had already given the same names to the FBI in another state when he cut his deal to keep from being prosecuted in the Charlotte deal, it's just that the FBI's communication systems didn't allow them to share this information, and they both cut their deals and remained here continuing their illegal acts.

America, we're in trouble in a big way. We are surrounded by foreigners everywhere we look. When our State Corp. Commission allows illegals to form corporations, and do business, our cities give them business license, they get drivers license, buy cars, do anything they want and no one questions them...What's wrong with this picture? Our tax money is to pay the salaries of those government agencies to protect us, yet they're not doing it, just as they didn't protect us before 9-11.

What are we going to do about it? Where do we turn? Do we just sit back and let the illegal aliens take control of our country? It appears that we don't have much choice at this point, does it? If you've got any ideas, please write and let me know, I've run out of names and address, not to mention agencies to ask for help. I surely can't go to local law enforcement, the man running for sheriff in our district has a huge sign in from of their local store, and they can't even vote, but they can give big donations from their sale they don't pay taxes on....no need to go on, I could write a book.

Open your eyes Americans, be aware of what's happening around you every day. I'M OUTRAGED AT OUR GOVERNMENT, ARE YOU? WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT, I CAN TELL YOU WHAT WE'RE DOING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
