Last February, an ICE/DHS Agent named Taylor Johnson started poking around and investigating corruption within DHS and ICE. Her chain of command was appointed entirely by Barack Obama and felt they were above the law… well…
In testimony last year to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Johnson said she was stripped of her gun and badge with no explanation after finding out about fraud. She confirmed she was offered hush money in the amount of a severance package of $100,000 if she would just sign a non-disclosure agreement. She said that during her investigation four years ago, she “discovered that EB-5 applicants from China, Russia, Pakistan and Malaysia had been approved in as little as two weeks” and that case files “lacked the basic and necessary law enforcement queries.” Nobody’s surprised.
Daily Caller reported that Johnson had been investigating the United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) was looking at a program called “EB-5” that granted green cards to foreigners who invest $500,000 in the U.S, and the things she found that didn’t sit well with her.
At ICE, Johnson was the honored recipient of several awards and never had disciplinary problems. But things chenged abruptly in 2013 when she crossed paths with Senator Reid by holding up a visa for a foreigner investor in a Las Vegas casino represented by his son, Cory Reid. The Senator’s office complained to Johnson’s Special Agent in Charge. She was then placed on administrative leave, again, no explanation, on October, 2013.
Under pressure from Senate Democratic staffers Johnson did not mention in her testimony the role Reid’s office played in her ouster. But DHS Inspector General did state in a report last March that US Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) director Alejandro Mayorkas intervened in “an unprecedented matter” to approve EB-5 visas for the Las Vegas casino investors after pressure from Reid’s office. So eventually Johnson’s statements against the agency were true. DHS will not comment on the issue. Which simply shows how obviously corrupt this agency is.
