I wish you guys could show us "whistleblowers" who have
had to take a stand for what we ALL believe in?
I suffered for doing my job and now still another
colleague of mine is suffering for working an under cover
operation posing as a "dirty inspector" in Arizona which
resulted in the indictment of 19 bad guys trying to buy
FREE passes for loads of marijuana and cocaine. This
involved a Bribery case of a public official or law
enforcement official who was solicited. 18 USC 201.
The Customs agency did NOT investigate.
This particular bribery "sting" operation
was investigated by the Treasury OIG agents who
"allegedly" got promoted and transferred. Another bribery
case in San Luis Arizona by the same Customs inspector was
also investigated by Customs I.A. and those agents were
also "allegedly" rewarded with a promotion and transfer.
See a pattern here?
Customs internal affairs did NOT participate in the other
case and was embarrassed as they are probably too dirty
and can't investigate itself. Apparently an NICB agent
name Jesus Alvarez was busted taking bribes and was
"allegedly" discovered to be on the Customs "new hire"
list. He was still awaiting his school date at FLETC. I
guess Customs management got caught on that one. Sometimes
Customs waits into the first year before catching some of
the "new" hires that have a questionable background or
flaw. (According to our sources, others in management were
involved as well as narcotics cartels)
The employee is currently getting threats by the cartel
and suspects as they know where his family lives.
He gets numerous telephone hang ups everyday, etc....
I am assisting and advising him personally, but this is
the very same type of stuff that does NOT get support by
the U.S. Attorney who is prosecuting this case. Customs is
NOT co-operating or assisting this brave man. they are
leaving him out in the open and should be protected like
the agents that were "allegedly" promoted and transferred.
There is NO PROTECTION for the employee or the family.
This employee should get an automatic transfer, promotion
and maybe some special protection until he can be "set up"
at another location of his choice away from the Southern
Border. Instead, the OIG or AUSA of the DOJ will probably
do nothing and leave this fine man out to hang for doing a
very good job. His career may be over and all the AUSA is
interestedd in is getting this ONE 19 count prosecution.
This AUSA will most likely get a promotion out of this
case as well.(ALL FELONIES for bribery a public official
18 USC 201)
Instead all they gave him was a Commissioner's Award and
about $5,000 cash award. After that nothing else.(Note:
Cash awards ARE taxed) What award???
Most other cases I have seen the employees were also
treated unfairly and without concern abut safety.
In other cases, the employee was take well care of,
transferred, later promoted to an area of his choice.(Cash
awards are taxed and promotions are permanent, but most
are not taken care of) Maybe it depend son who your CMC
You will NOT see 19 indictments on a routine basis. It
will also cause various attorney's in the AUSA's office to
get THEIR promotions. You can do this once in a lifetime
and then after that move to another area where the
cartel doesn't know you.(If you want to take that chance)
I don't recommend it. The southern border and specifically
in Arizona is very bad with corruption and illegal alien
invasion issues at this time.
WHAT YOU CAN DO?:
YOU can write you local Congressman and Senator to support
us Customs whistleblowers by supporting the laws that are
supposed to help us and get new legislation to enforce the
laws that protect us all. Force the government to support
