Nebraska: Illegal immigrant driver’s license scheme brings stiff prison sentence for one man

Posted by nebraskaobserver on July 2, 2008

An Omaha man, Saidjon Ibragimov, pleaded guilty in federal court as part of a national ring to get driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. As the co-leader of the operation, Ibragimov, 22, of Omaha was convicted in federal court in Nebraska for transporting 15 illegal immigrants from New Jersey to Nebraska to purchase licenses, between Nov. 30, 2006, and June 13, 2007. Ibragimov was the fourth and final member of the operation to be convicted in the conspiracy and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Ibragimov was charged with bribing a Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles employee in Omaha who told authorities in 2006 about a man who offered to pay her for state driver’s licenses. As it turns out, Ibragimov, a native of Tajikistan, had gotten to know the state worker because he served as a translator at the office.

Investigators said Ibragimov brought people from countries all over the world to Omaha to get illegal licenses and let them stay at his apartment. He gave the DMV agent $4,000 and seven passports, and told the employee he would bring Chinese, Mongolian and Tajik nationals from Chicago and the Nebraska area to the office to obtain licenses. Investigators secretly recorded subsequent conversations between Ibragimov and the DMV employee.

Agents arrested Ibragimov and 14 other people two days after their last taped conversation took place. In addition to the four people convicted in the conspiracy, nine others were charged with fraud and bribery.

At the time of the arrests, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Department, which participated in the eight-month investigation, placed detainers on 10. That meant the agency suspected the men were illegally in the country.

Following his time in jail, Ibragimov will serve three years of supervised release.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We don’t see any reference in either story to whether Ibragimov is a citizen or here on a visa. Is supervised release the same as parole?…or code for illegal who is being allowed to remain in U.S. If he is here legally but not a citizen, why isn’t he being deported? Any ideas out there?

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 11, 2008

Two men and one woman were arrested after a high-speed chase early Tuesday morning after five people and a pizza delivery-man were robbed at gunpoint. In custody are 19-year-old Kenneth Sailors of Omaha, 18-year-old Carlos Hernandez of Omaha and a 17-year-old girl whose name has not been released. Well, at least three more losers off the street. Good job Omaha Police! WOWT story

Omaha: DUI, speeding, tequila, beer bottles, cockroaches & NE-HHS = toddler in critical condition

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 10, 2008

A Hispanic male, Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista, is behind bars after a Sunday night DUI incident in which his 2 year old son will probably be left a paraplegic. Besides drunk driving, he was cited for felony child neglect.

Nebraska state law requires all children up to age 6 to ride in a federally approved car seat or booster seat that is appropriate for the child’s age, height and weight. Children aged 6 to 18 must be in a seat belt if they are not in a booster seat. Nebraska law prohibits children under age 18 from riding in cargo areas in any vehicle. Drivers and front seat passengers must wear a seat belt or be in a child safety seat.

Nebraska’s seat belt law is a secondary law. Drivers can be cited for this violation only if stopped for a separate violation. Violating Nebraska’s seat belt law carries a fine of only $25.00, for each offense.

Now we all know (well not everybody would agree) that our law enforcement personnel do a great job with the resources they have. However, our state legislators apparently feel that a child’s life and future is only worth $25.00. Instead of spending time giving the taxpayers money to promote North and South Omaha (Little Mexico) as a tourist attraction, their time and our money would be better spent on bills to protect children and the taxpayer.

The Nebraska Observer wants to see some answers to some politically incorrect questions. What is the nationality and citizenship of the parents? Are they here legally or illegally? Do they speak English? Did Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista have a valid driver’s license? What other, if any, offenses has Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista committed in this state or any other state? How many other people are currently living at the father and mother’s new address? Since Health & Human Services was still responsible for Selvin’s welfare, how many home inspections were done after they did a walk through on March 14 and what about those family support services, which could include lessons in basic parenting skills they were receiving,? Does the Douglas County Attorney’s office know these answers and willing to tell? Somebody knows.

As far as we are concerned, he can rot in “hell” but he will probably get off because he is just trying to better himself, Hispanics are very family oriented, he didn’t understand the language, he didn’t understand our laws or driving fast and recklessly is a Hispanic male “cultural” thing. Pick one.

The Nazi’s are coming…..the Nazi’s are coming…..to Omaha

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 8, 2008

UPDATE: June 11, 2008 – The protest date is scheduled for Saturday, July 5th at 12:30 p.m instead of July 8th.

Well it’s that time of year again folks. Those wild and crazy bunch of guys, the (American) National Socialist Movement (Nazi’s) are coming back to Omaha again to protest in “Little Mexico” (South Omaha…for you outlanders). Set up for July 8 at Thrift World, 5128 S 24th St., they will be protesting against a business owner indicted by a federal grand jury in April 2008 for hiring and hiding illegal immigrants dating back to 2002.

The Nebraska Observer in no way endorses this white supremacist group or any other group of this nature. We are simply reporting the news. In fact, these citizens have more right as far as the Nebraska Observer is concerned than the illegal Mexicans and other Hispanics aliens who march in our streets not asking; but demanding citizenship, waving their flags in our face (in some cases, stomping on the American flag) and then saying they are going to take part of our country away from us.

That said, we do applaud the groups First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and protest, as well as having the cahones to do so. Meanwhile, the rest of us (sheep) don’t educate ourselves and complacently go about our daily lives while local Hispanic leaders, politicians and community leaders try to screw every last dollar out of us, the taxpayers. It’s must be every American citizen’s dream to become a “third-world” country like Mexico.

There should be thousands of us (sheep) also out in the streets marching and saying, “we’re sick and tired of all this Hispanic “bull-shit” of trying to get these “illegal aliens” citizenship and as much “free” goodies as possible..blah..blah..blah..whine..whine..whine because they are “brown like me”! This does not include our fellow Mexican-American citizens, such as “You Don’t Speak For Me” who are also fed up with this crap too!
