Man Sentenced for Fatally Hitting, Killing St. Paul Student

A man was sentenced in the hitting and killing a 16-year-old girl outside a St. Paul High School.
Carlos Viveros-Colorado was sentenced to more than five years in prison.
He was charged with criminal vehicular homicide and criminal vehicular operation in connection with the death of Clarisse Grime.
Authorities say the incident happened July 5 outside of Harding High School, where Grime was attending summer school.
According to authorities, Viveros-Colorado was driving a SUV at excessively high speeds on Third Street when he misjudged a turn and lost control of the vehicle.
The SUV went off of the road, hit a fire hydrant and mowed over a sign before hitting both Grime and her boyfriend, 17-year-old Eduardo Vazquez-Torres.
Grime died at the scene. Vazquez-Torres, also from St. Paul, was conscious and walking following the crash. He was taken to Regions Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to the criminal complaint, Viveros-Colorado spoke to police through an interpreter. He told police his foot was stuck on the accelerator at the time of the incident. He said he has a health problem related to numbness in his legs.
He said the numbness usually lasts about 15 minutes, and he has to rub his legs to get them to work.
He admitted it was dangerous for him to drive with his condition, but said he was hoping to make it home from work.
Border Patrol to stop interpreting
SEATTLE (AP) - U.S. Border Patrol agents will no longer serve as interpreters when local law enforcement agencies request language help, according to a new decree issued by the Department of Homeland Security.
The new guidance said agents should refer such requests to private services often used by government agencies.
Hundreds of thousands of officially deported aliens have refused to leave the United States. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) estimates that more than 800,000 aliens who have been ordered removed from the country have failed to do so. Although legally barred from receiving federal benefits such as Medicaid and food stamps, one in eight are still able to do so according to an audit conducted by the Inspector General’s Office of DHS according to a December 18th story from the Washington Times. 

The federal government has a system of tracking immigrants’ status called the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements Program, commonly known as SAVE. This system is supposed to identify aliens who are ordered deported but have failed to do so and is shared among government agencies so they can be identified and denied benefits.

According to this study, more than twelve percent of these aliens with an order of removal were still allowed to receive federal aid. Many of these were convicted felons and still were allowed to participate even though they should have been red-flagged. SAVE is maintained by the USCIS.

Some of the aliens ordered deported were not flagged by SAVE and allowed to obtain sensitive employment in airports the Washington Times story goes on to report.

Each year hundreds of thousands of aliens are removed to their country of origin by ICE, CBP and Border Patrol. But only a small percentage of this large number are formally deported.

Fast and Furious gun found at Mexican crime scene

CBS News, December 18, 2012

Another weapon from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agency’s controversial Operation Fast and Furious was recently recovered at a Mexican crime scene, CBS News has learned. Congressional investigators say the crime scene was likely where a recent shootout took place between reported Sinaloa drug cartel members and the Mexican military, in which Sinaloa beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez and four others were killed.

Pistol purchased by ATF agent found at alleged cartel crime scene in Mexico

CBS News has learned that two guns found in the area of a recent Mexican drug cartel shootout have been linked to Fast and Furious: One trafficked by a suspect in the case, and the other purchased by a federal agent.
Mexican beauty queen Susana Flores Maria Gamez and four others died in the brutal gun battle between Sinaloa cartel members and the Mexican military in November. CBS News has learned that an FN Herstal pistol recovered near the crime scene in November was originally purchased by an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) manager who was faulted by the Inspector General in Operation Fast and Furious: George Gillett. Gillett was the Asst. Special Agent in Charge of ATF Phoenix when Fast and Furious began.
The Herstal pistol is nicknamed a “cop-killer” because of its designation as a “weapon of choice” for Mexican drug cartels. CBS News has learned the Inspector General planned to question Gillett today after a hastily-opened inquiry to determine how this agent’s personal weapon got into the hands of suspected cartel members.
CBS News spoke to Gillett, who is still employed at ATF. Gillett acknowledged he once owned the weapon in question, but says he sold it in Phoenix sometime last year after advertising it on the Internet. He declined to provide the name of the man who bought it, but says he went “above and beyond” what was required by law to complete the firearms transaction. That included asking the purchaser to fill out a form giving personal information and stating that he was in the U.S. legally; and checking his driver’s license, which Gillett said was issued in the U.S.

Mexican beauty queen killed in shootout

“I didn’t do anything criminal,” said Gillett, who calls himself a gun enthusiast. “I’ve been a gun collector all my life.”
He told CBS News that he ran into financial difficulties in recent years and sold some of his firearms. Gillett says the Herstal pistol may have sold for approximately $1,100.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote a letter (PDF) to the Inspector General late today asking for an urgent investigation. Grassley included records from three of Gillett’s gun purchases, so-called Form 4473’s, and says that Gillett appears to have provided false information on them.
“Lying on a Form 4473 is a felony and can be punished by up to five years in prison,” Grassley’s letter states. The senator also points out that’s the same alleged violation that suspects in ATF’s Fast and Furious operation were arrested for. “Jaime Avila, Jr. recently plead guilty to a variety of charges” in Fast and Furious, including “for giving a false address on Form 4473.”
Form 4473’s require purchasers to list their current residential address. Gillett’s gun purchase forms incorrectly list the local ATF Phoenix office and a shopping plaza as his personal residence, according to Grassley’s letter.
Gillett did not comment on allegations about the address on the forms.
In a related development, as CBS News reported yesterday, another weapon recovered in the same area after the shootout in which the beauty queen was killed, had been trafficked by Fast and Furious suspect Uriel Patino.
(just a reminder)
With yet another assualt of the Constitution in full force
Here is a reminder of the commonly and FALSE claim of
