**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Meet Rizwan Ahmed of Staten Island, New York. The Muslim Pakistani illegal alien wanted to stay here, and he found a willing partner in Hazel Benson, who sold her dead boy’s identity to him for a cool $10,000. Sorry your son died, but then to use that tragedy to sell out your country?
Sadly, there are far too many more where Ms. Benson came from. And far more, who unlike Mr. Ahmed, succeed in their illegal alien document fraud schemes.
Lots of questions here: Who is Rizwan Ahmed? Why was he here? How did he manage to stay here for “several years”? And what was he planning? Was he just a “deli worker,” or was that his cover for something far more evil . . . like a terrorist plot against America? Oh, and how does an apparently illegal alien get a job working at a deli for “several years”? Where is his work permit (which illegal aliens can’t get)? Where is ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) on this?
It sounds like ICE agents should be pulling a dragnet on the Muslims who operate Night Grocery, the way they did on the Jewish-owned kosher meat-packing plant, Agriprocessors, in Postville, Iowa (whose workers were Hispanic Catholics, not the far more dangerous Muslims from Pakistan a la Mr. Rizwan). But don’t hold your breath. ICE chief John Moron doesn’t have the juice . . . or the guts. Watch Ahmed do the perp walk:

Authorities say a Pakistani-born deli worker from Stapleton forked over $10,000 to acquire the identity of a child who died in 1996.
But the state DMV didn’t fall for the dodge, and now investigators are probing whether there was a more sinister motive than the suspect’s explanation that he needed the ID to get a New York driver’s license.
Law enforcers say Rizwan Ahmed, 24, was willing to pay thousands of dollars to assume the identity of Michael Keller, an 8-year-old who died of respiratory arrest in 1996.
Ahmed stands accused of paying $10,000 to Hazel Benson, Michael’s mother, for the boy’s birth certificate and Social Security number.
Once that transaction was completed, Ahmed went to the borough’s Department of Motor Vehicles office in Travis on June 3 with the dead child’s information and filled out two application forms, court papers allege.
The applications didn’t pass muster, though. An internal DMV review sparked a police investigation, and now Ahmed and Ms. Benson face felony charges.
A flustered Ms. Benson told the Advance that “stupidity and desperation” led her to sell her dead boy’s information. “[I was] desperate for funds, which I never received. … I wasn’t really thinking straight. I had a handicapped mother, and I really, really wanted to care for her.” . . .
“I went with Hazel Brown [Benson] to the DMV to get a license,” Ahmed told investigators after his arrest, according to court papers. “I paid her $10,000 to get documents because I knew I couldn’t get an American ID.
Authorities say Ahmed works at the Day & Night Grocery at 466 Bay St. An employee there, Mohammad Aziz, confirmed yesterday that Ahmed had worked there for several years.
Ms. Benson told the Advance she did not go with Ahmed to the DMV, nor receive $10,000. She said she knew Ahmed through his uncle, whom she identified as Ali, since meeting him in Brooklyn in the 1980s, and had dealt primarily with the older man.
Benson claims she didn’t get the money, but I don’t buy it. People don’t commit a crime as serious as this . . . “just ‘cuz” and before seeing the dough.
Do you believe her sob story? Her mother couldn’t be handled by Medicaid? Think Obamacare will end this kind of thing happening? Think again. But I’m sure we’ll hear something making that argument: Ya see, without Obamacare, people help potential Islamic terrorists . . . .
We are at war. And the war is not in Afghanistan or Iraq. It’s on our own shores. And anyone who enables Muslim illegal aliens to remain here and assume a fake identity is giving aid and comfort to the enemy in wartime. I can think of no more direct definition of a traitor.
**** UPDATE – Reader “commonsense” writes:
I wonder – how did Rizwan Ahmed, a menial deli worker, amass ten thousand dollars to pay for someone else’s identity? This detail cries out for an investigation.
