Crime & Incompetence: Guide to America’s Immigration Crisis

Guide to America's Immigration Crisis

An explosive and unvarnished look at America’s immigration problem. Crime & Incompetence: Guide to America’s Immigration Crisis takes the reader into a world of crime, corruption, and incompetence that politicians (on both sides of the aisle) and faceless bureaucrats do not want you to know exists.

Investigative journalist Marinka Peschmann’s eye-opening book exposes the dark side of the broken immigration system.  Bribery—cash, gifts, or sex—is but one criminal element at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

After reading Crime & Incompetence, Americans will learn how, under the watch of both Republican and Democratic administrations, the USCIS grew into a dysfunctional bureaucracy that substantially contributed to the ongoing decades-long illegal alien/undocumented worker crisis.

Legal immigration is so broken it creates illegal aliens. The most damning evidence?  Government reports and court cases tell the tale.

It is worth noting that Crime & Incompetence was inspired by Michael Aytes, the then Acting Deputy Director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Aytes attacked me (it is in the book), after I started reporting on the serious problems with immigration in 2009. Tragically immigration was broken then and it remains broken over a decade later.

“Immigration judges are quitting or retiring early because of Trump,” Los Angeles Times, January 27, 2020.

“[Immigration Judge Charles Honeyman] continued to grant asylum to victims of domestic violence even after the Justice Department said that was not a valid reason to. And he tried to ignore demands to speed through cases without giving them the consideration he believed the law required.”

“A Hamilton County judge told WCPO he regularly calls U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on defendants in his courtroom when he suspects they could be in the country illegally. “I call ICE in a minute. I have no problem calling ICE,” said Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman. Ruehlman said he calls ICE “10 to 20” times a year.”

Update: August 15, 2021. Legal immigration is still broken, and more good people are dying. It’s beyond tragic. This time it’s Afghans who worked with and helped the U.S. military in Afghanistan. The same thing happened with the Iraqi translators.
