OPEN LETTER TO THOMAS HOMAN, EXECUTIVE ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR, DHS-ICE-ERO

November 27, 2013
 

Honorable Thomas Homan

Executive Associate Director

Enforcement & Removal Operations
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
500 12th Street, SW
Washington, D.C. 20536
 
Dear Honorable Executive Associate Director Homan:
 
My wife, my stepson and I need your help and assistance.  This is a follow-up of an e-mail I sent you on November 21, and 22, 2013 which you refused to accept.  Now it is posted in this great website of Narco News..  
 
On 11/21/2013 pursuant to a CALL-IN-LETTER (DHS Form G-56), my stepson PAUL PETER TJANDRA, Alien No. A-099-365-808 was arrested by ERO agents at 7431 E. 30TH St., Yuma, AZ 85364, as witnessed by myself and wife Anik Muridah (Exhibit 1).  The arrest was conducted by ERO agent Espinoza and another ERO agent.  Your two ERO agents demonstrated an extraordinary professionalism while effecting the arrest.  They were very polite and humble.  I may have acted angry and/or surprised but after all, they were doing their job simply in an extraordinary manner.  I apologized if in some way I may have demonstrated an hostility expression.  Again, I am sorry. Please congratulate both ERO agents for a job well done.
 
However, to be honest and truthful, my stepson, my wife and I expected a different "For Immigration Review" treatment.  The call-in-letter was signed by Jon Gurule, Acting Field Office Director. We assumed, the "Immigration Review" was regarding the "PROVISIONAL UNLAWFUL PRESENCE WAIVER OF INADMISSIBILITY FOR CERTAIN IMMEDIATE RELATIVES." (Ehibit 2)  I am a retired DHS-ICE-HSI Special Agent  after 20 years of federal criminal supervisory and street career experience.  I honorably retired in October 2006.  you can ad 10 plus years in working as a county deputy sheriff and Lansing Police Officer with the Lansing Police Department, Lansing, Michigan.
 
I reviewed your ICE-ERO website and found the following mission statement:
 
"ERO employees work to uphold the agency's mission by ensuring the removal of aliens who pose a threat to national security or public safety through fair and effective immigration law enforcement" (Taken from ICE-ERO Website).
 
In circa 1996 I married Anik Muridah from Indonesia.  She was going through deportation proceedings before an Immigration Judge (IJ) in Imperial, CA.  The IJ asked my wife if she wanted to ad her son Paul Peter Tjandra in the case. My wife's attorney who graduated from a foreign law school answered no.  The answer should have been "yes' since my stepson was 20 years of age.  This was a big mistake because my wife got a "green card" after we went through the Phoenix's USCIS adjudication process.  My stepson had to apply for asylum alone and on his own. 
 
On December 3, 2005, Mr. Tjandra filed Form I-589 - "Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal" (Exhibit 3)  The application was written in English and was readable.  I can attest to this since I hold a PhD academic degree and have written hundreds of affidavits in support of federal arrest and or federal search warrants, as well as hundreds of complete federal criminal investigative reports.
 
Subsequently it is alleged by USCIS and agency administrative attorneys that Mr. Tjanda failed to show-up for an "ASYLUM INTERVIEW" on February 20. 2007.  I declare under the penalty of perjury that we never received such "ASYLUM INTERVIEW NOTICE."  USCIS attorneys issued an unreadable poorly copy of the so called "ASYLUM INTERVIEW NOTICE" - REORDER SCIM-1 (Exhibit4).
 
A review of the USCIS Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations Directorate Asylum Division - AFFIRMATIVE ASYLUM PROCEDURES MANUAL, issued in November 2007, page 95 which lists five (5) reasons can cause the Asylum Office to reschedule an interview.  I found two very important reasons: 1) The file does not contain a copy of the applicant's Interview Notice, and 2) The Interview Notice is unreadable (Exhibit 5).
 
On December 3, 2005, Mr. Tjandra, after receiving Form 589 (returned) from USCIS signed the form 589 and he wrote on a letter that the application had been written in English.  
 
On April 23, 2008, my wife Anik Muridah filed Form I-130 and paid $355.00 with USCIS (Exhibit 6).
 
On June 11, 2007, the USCIS Ombudsman issued his Annual Report 2007 whereby, he officially stated and wrote that 271,969 there were "NON-DELIVERY OF DOCUMENTS" (Exhibit 7). 
 
On August 3, 2007, we received a letter from the USCIS' Asylum Center, Santa Ana, CA ordering Mr. Tjandra to appear for a deportation hearing on February 10, 2009, for failure to appear for his "asylum interview' in Santa Ana, CA (Exhibit 7). We never received such a "NOTICE."  In fact after using FOIA I obtained documentary evidence proving that the USCIS-Asylum Center, at Santa Ana, CA had fabricated (fraud) the so-called asylum interview.  The FOIA material produced over 1200 pages contained in a DVD.
 
On August 28, 2007, Mr. Tjandra retains the legal services of Immigration Attorney James F. Metcalf, who unknown to us he was and/or was to become a candidate for the position of United States Magistrate in Yuma, AZ (Exhibit 8).
 
On September 27, 2007, attorney Metcalf sent a letter to District Counsel Patricia Vroom (Exhibit 9)
 
On February 10, 2009. Mr. Tjandra appeared before Immigration Judge La Monte S. Franks (Exhibit 10)
 
Mr. James F. Metcalf was appointed, as a U.S. Magistrate Judge, U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, November 21, 2012 (Exhibit 11).
 
Mr. Tjandra received VISA information from the Embassy of the United States located at Jakarta, Indonesia (Exhibit 12).  Additional information revealed Mr. Tjandra's VISA package was "missing" and/or that it had been shipped to the USCIS in the USA.
 
On November 11, 210, I wrote a letter to Mr. George Mihalco, Director, Los Angeles Asylum Office, USCIS (Exhibit 13) 
 
Copies of incriminating computer information obtained through FOIA from USCIS (Exhibit 14).
 
 When I was a resident Agent in Charge, Office of Internal Affairs, U.S. Custom Service, the cases that gave me more pleasure were the ones that exonerated our U.S. Customs employees.  I strongly believe in true justice.
 
My home telephone is (928) 329-1099; my wife's cell is (928) 920-1006.
 
We are old folks and we depend in our son Paul Peter Tjandra, age 28 single who is a model Indonesian USA resident who works very hard, files his yearly U.S. Income Taxes every year, pays his federal, state and local taxes, and has his own Blue Cross-Blue Shield health insurance, HAS NO CRIMINAL HISTORY, no traffic tickets, he doesn't smoke or drink alcohol.  I don't understand the logic, my model step-son who is a Oriental Chef and Information Computer System expert.  Our taxpayers are paying for this U.S. Executive Administration to abuse, misuse our funds, such as paying all expenses for my stepson's incarceration, paying federal employees man-hours, paying his flight ticket back to Indonesia.  I am an Arizona State Private Investigator and I will be glad and happy to identify and locate hard core criminal and child sexual predators who are illegal aliens who are roaming free in our street while DHS-ICE-ERO is busy processing my stepson's removal.  This is a NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT!.  Mr. Tjandra is NOT!
 
The following story is not accurate, ICE has been conducting masses of arrests of young hardworking aliens with close ties to the community with no criminal history, no police tickets, U.S. Income Tax filers, have health insurance.  They are related to U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Aliens parents.  Some of them are closely related to retired DHS-ICE-HSI special agents. Some of them have immigration benefits pending.    
 
On November 26, 2013, the following article appeared on Fox News:
 
Austin’s new ICE team nets nearly 200 arrests in first year
Almost 200 illegal aliens with criminal records have been captured in the Austin area this past year. A special team of federal agents played a key role in those arrests.

A restaurant, near the square in Georgetown is where the latest arrest took place. Efrain Antonio Osorio-Osorio who was working as a cook at the time was wanted for murder. Investigators say the Mexican national had fled to Texas from Maryland after shooting a man over a debt.

"I believe his girlfriend was living in the area, and he took up residences here in the Austin area.

After tracking him to the restaurant, federal agents made a to-go order. The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was part of the November 7th operation but the take down also involved agents from a newly created special unit. 

The Austin fugitive operations team is one of 129 created by immigrations and customs enforcement. Since hitting the streets in October of 2012, the team has arrested 198 illegal aliens -- 174 of those who were caught already had criminal histories.

The Department of Homeland Security launched a major a national roundup last year called Operation Cross Check. The crackdown is part of the agency's new strategy to target those who are considered to be high risk offenders, murders, kidnappers, rapists and drug dealers. Austin's growth has made it a popular destination for these dangerous individuals.

"We have targeted some individuals that do have ties to the Mexican cartels and other various continuing criminal enterprises here in the Austin area, and they are otherwise focused on other criminal offenses they commit here in the Austin area."

Before making the arrest in Georgetown, the ICE unit was involved in the arrest of a man who already had a conviction for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Another man had an outstanding warrant for child sex abuse.
