Lorraine Henderson, the Boston area port director for the Department of Homeland Security, was charged with hiring three illegal aliens to clean her house. illegal-immigrant-sign

According to a New York Times story, the housekeeper in question wore a wire for federal authorities who were investigating Henderson on suspicion of hiring illegal workers.

“Ms. Henderson is in charge of all international points of entry, including airports and shipping terminals, in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and she supervises more than 200 Customs and Border Protection agency employees. She was also responsible for preventing illegal immigrants from entering the country and processing all foreign citizens at ports. She was appointed to the post in 2003.”

Henderson knew the employee was illegally in the country throughout her service.

“You have to be careful ’cause they will deport you,” Ms. Henderson told the woman, who is from Brazil, after she asked about filing immigration papers for her new baby, the federal complaint says.”

Henderson was released on $25,000 bond and is facing up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if found guilty.

How ironic is this? The woman in charge of immigration was caught knowingly hiring three illegal aliens.I guess it is hard to find good help these days.

These are important positions, which require competent employees. This is just another example proving federal employees are not all honest, law abiding citizens. It’s time for the government to put more research and effort into their hiring practices, otherwise this country quickly turn into a laughing stock.
