ICE’s $50,000 John: Well, Now We Know Why Immigration Wasted Our Tax $$$ on Tommy Lasorda

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE: Tommy La-Whore-da’s lawyer is claiming he never met the “Hollywood Super Madam.” So, maybe he didn’t meet her, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t “meet” one of her “girls.” And FYI, the Super Madam claimed, today, on FOX News’ “The Big Story,” that she has the officially certified court documents showing La-Whore-da’s “invoice” for services, phone calls to her number, etc. And the L.A. Times viewed the court docs and independently confirmed that his name is on the records.****
Last summer, I wrote about how Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Director of Detention and Removal Operations, John Torres, was holding a week-long confab to promote himself and waste hundreds of thousands in our tax dollars. All of the top ICE officials and Detention and Removal Operations Field Office Directors were there, while they could have been doing immigration enforcement and deportation work, getting rid of illegal aliens. The event was held with the full approval and attendance of ICE Chieftess Julie Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess.”
I also wrote how Torres a/k/a ICE’s own evil Costanza paid Major League Baseball’s Tommy Lasorda between $30,000 and $50,000 of our tax money to be the keynote speaker at this event–a huge hint that the week-long party (at which ICE DRO officials did NOT want to be but were required to attend) had nothing to do with immigration enforcement.

ICE’s Most Famous Johns: 

Homeland Security’s Tommy Lasorda w/ John Torres, Mikey Chertoff

Well, I was wrong. Besides having expertise in keeping aliens like El Duque in the States doing the work “Americans just won’t do,” it appears that Tommy Lasorda actually has a lot of experience with criminals and some of them might even be illegal aliens.
Hollywood Madame Jody “Babydol” Gibson (yes, she spells “Babydol” with only one “L”–everyone in Hollywood has to spell the wrong way on purpose, just to be noticed) just released the contents of her “little black book” of johns in a new book, “Secrets of a Hollywood Super Madam.” The L.A. Times reports that court records of her phone and payment logs and other records (from her 2000 trial and conviction for running an international prostitution ring) show one of her prominent customers was none other than newly-minted ICE Detention and Removal Ops expert Tommy Lasorda.
Since this info on Lasorda came out in a 2000 trial (and has been available to law enforcement since that time), that means that John Torres, formerly an INS investigative agent, could have investigated Lasorda’s background–and didn’t–before inviting him to speak. How embarrassing for an agency that is mostly involved in “investigations.” I guess that explains why The ICE Princess chose an investigator–with no experience in detention and removal of aliens–to head Detention and Removal Operations. Clearly, he wasn’t any good as an investigator.
And, as we’ve mentioned on this site, The ICE Princess and others have tried to work the illegal alien slave sex workers angle for ICE exposure in sympathetic TV movies on Lifetime, etc. Perhaps Lasorda even “encountered” such an alien in his “patronage” of the “Hollywood SuperMadam.” Gibson was, after all, convicted of running and “international” prostitution ring.
Either way, one thing is for sure: While Lasorda paid her and her girls a thousand or so for encounter as their john, we–American taxpayers via ICE–paid Lasorda $30-50K as his john.
That’s a lot of money for very little “service.”
John Torres and Julie L. Myers ought to be ashamed–having one of America’s most famous johns as their keynote speaker (and paying him heftily for it). They pimped American taxpayers.
But unfortunately they aren’t. There’s no shame atop ICE. And that’s the real shame.

Debbie about 10 years ago I was in a “men’s club” and a pretty blonde dancer came up to me asked me if i was jewish. i admitted it and asked her if she was and she admitted it too. but she claimed she was married so it didn’t work out for us.

The guitar player for the Sex Pistols Steve Jones was the only man man enough to admit using the escort service, how ironic that it takes the Sex Pistols to once again undermine the hypocrites in the music and movie industry. He is the guy ICE should hire to give motivational speeches.
As I said here before, Lasorda was known to invite pornstars into the Dodger lockerroom after games for orgies. I’m not pointing a finger for the prostitution, but for his hypocrisy.

first off, dont even think that its a man thing, the women in this world nowadays arent helping themselves any. CUM to think of it, isnt hoin’ an expression of feminism’s triumph over male dominance by showing that womyn can OWN their stuffs?!!
If you ever want to know why all these rich white males in haarrywoo pay for it, read charlie sheen’s comments on the subject. (IOWs what the diff these days..)
all that aside, are we in the era of vespasian or what?!! these effin communists and their freakish ways are just amazingly stupid. I commend the Deb for finding all this out and actually saying something. I would say that the inmates are running the asylum but it looks like there is no asylum.
I hope the mexicans do a good job when they run the place. I just hope they dont paint the white house green white and red too..
I wish we could get term limits for gubmint employees. if we ever have a draft again it should start with all these clowns getting replaced by execs from the auto industry they destroyed.

The fact that you clearly have very personal and lasting grudges against John Torres and Julie Myers is unmistakable. The question that I have is – why? Why the very personal, immature, yellow journalistic attacks? What is the point?
Do you believe that this type of “journalism” increases the number of people who read your site? Or do you just not care about reporting responsibly?
ICE as an agency has done more in the last year and a half under Julie Myers than in the previous 36 months. She inherited a fiscal mess that is now repaired. She inherited a culture of animosity borne out of wildly unpopular merger that is subsiding. She inherited an atmosphere of lethargy that has been replaced by energy. She inherited catch and release and a dormant worksite enforcement program – she ended one and revived the other.
She has done a masterful job. John Torres has done a masterful job – ending catch and release and taking over the criminal alien program that ICE’s OI didn’t want, and couldn’t manage. No matter – it is getting done, and with greater success than before.
I know for a fact that others have e-mailed you contradicting your information – and you have refused to correct yourself and villified them for disagreeing with you. No doubt you will either block this post or attempt to identify me. I don’t care. Your stories posted here are just those – fairy tales. Tommy Lasorda didn’t get paid a dime for speaking at the DRO conference last year – and you know it. You choose not to write about it and perpetuate the lie for the sake of a good story. True journalists require sources who corroborate each other, not disgruntled employees who will lie and distort the truth at the expense of the public. You, Debbie, are the one who should be ashamed. Julie Myers went to law school. You went to law school.
Julie Myers is in charge of a Federal agency with a $5 billion dollar budget. You write a blog that caters to disgruntled government employees. Who should we look up to?
SINCE EVERY SINGLE ICE AGENT I’VE HAD CONTACT WITH IS “DISGRUNTLED” (AND THERE HAVE BEEN THOUSANDS–MOST OF THE AGENTS THAT EXIST), I’D HAVE TO SAY THAT THE PERSON WHO CALLED YOU A “BUTT-SNORKLER” OF MYERS AND TORRES IS INCORRECT. YOU ARE LIKELY NOT JUST A “BUTT-SNORKLER” OF MYERS/TORRES, BUT ONE OF THEM, HIM/HERSELF.
YOU’RE RIGHT. A LAWYER WITH ZERO LAW ENFORCEMENT EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE IN CHARGE OF ONE OF THE LARGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES. MY BAD. SILLY ME. AND SILLY EVERY SINGLE OTHER LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE WHO AGREE ON THIS ISSUE LIKE NO OTHER (YES, THE CAUSE OF THE ICE PRINCESS’ ABSOLUTE INCOMPETENCE AND LACK OF QUALIFICATIONS DID THE RARE THING OF UNITING LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES WHO WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD TOGETHER).
I’D NEVER WANT TO RUN ICE, B/C UNLIKE HER, I ACTUALLY ADMIT I AM NOT QUALIFIED AND AM NOT VERUCA SALT-ESQUE ENOUGH TO SAY, “UNCLE GEN. RICHARD, I WANT THAT JOB AND I WANT IT NOW.” SO, MY BAD FOR NOT BEING AS SELFISH TO THE POINT OF SERIOUSLY JEOPARDIZING MY COUNTRY’S NATIONAL SECURITY FOR A JOB I WANT TO PAD MY RESUME AND FEEL IMPORTANT. MY BAD FOR NOT BEING BORN A CLOSE RELATIVE OF A GENERAL WHO KNOWS NO BOUNDS OF DIGNITY IN PROMOTING ME FOR A JOB I DON’T DESERVE AND FOR NOT SLEEPING WITH PEOPLE WHO COULD ALSO GET ME THIS JOB I DON’T DESERVE. THE NERVE OF ME. YOU KNOW, YOU’VE NOW INSPIRED ME TO SEEK THE JOB AS THE HEAD OF NASA. BECAUSE, HEY, I WENT TO LAW SCHOOL. ERGO, I MUST BE QUALIFIED. IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE, RIGHT?
AND SHAME ON ME FOR NOT BEING ONE OF JOHN TORRES’ EXTRAMARITAL GIRLFRIENDS, SO THAT I COULD GET A CUSHY JOB I’M NOT QUALIFIED FOR IN EXCHANGE FOR THE “JOB” I’M PERFORMING FOR HIM. HOW DARE I EXPOSE THAT KIND OF MALFEASANCE? SO “IMMATURE” OF ME. GETTING JOBS FOR SLEEPING WITH THE BOSS–ESPECIALLY IN SUCH AN IMPORTANT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY–IS A GREAT THING.
MYERS’ “REPAIRED” THE FISCAL SITUATION AT ICE?! SHE JUST SPENT $4.25 MILLION ON CHIP-CLIPS, CHAP-STICK, AND STUFFED MONKEYS, AND WHO KNOWS HOW MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS ON THE WEEK-LONG TOMMY LASORDA THING. AND HOW ABOUT THE MONEY SHE WASTED TO CREATE A NEW SPECIAL LAWYER JOB FOR HER BUDDY WAYNE BAKER, WHO HAD TO LEAVE BECAUSE HE ALLEGEDLY TRIED TO GET THE FEDS TO DROP A DRUG DEALING CASE AGAINST HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW? ARE THE ICE LAWYERS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER THAT SHE WASTES OUR MONEY ON THIS ETHICALLY-CHALLENGED CRONY OF HERS? AND AGENTS ARE TELLING ME THEY DON’T HAVE MONEY FOR OIL CHANGES FOR G-CARS OR PENS AND FILES TO OPEN CASES.
AND YOU’RE CLAIMING THAT SHE REPAIRED THE FISCAL CONDITION? HELLO . . .? YOU REALLY THINK CATCH AND RELEASE HAS ENDED? WHAT, INDEED, ARE YOU SMOKING? DO THEY RANDOM DRUG-TEST TORRES AND MYERS? APPARENTLY, THEY SHOULD, SINCE YOU ARE ONE OF THE TWO, AND ARE EXPERIENCING EXTREME DELUSIONS.
AND WHAT AN IDIOT I AM FOR DERIDING THE ABSOLUTE WASTE OF MONEY JOHN TORRES, A BASEBALL FAN WHO PLAYS IN A FANTASY BASEBALL LEAGUE, FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET ON IMMIGRATION AND DEPORTATION EXPORT TOMMY LASORDA. AND THE MONEY HE WASTED ON A WEEK-LONG PARTY TO PROMOTE HIMSELF. HOW COULD I HAVE SUCH CHUTZPAH AS TO QUESTION THIS GENIUS MOVE?
I’VE NEVER RECEIVED ANY E-MAILS WITH ANY PROOF SHOWING LASORDA WASN’T PAID. OR EVEN MAKING THAT CLAIM. IF LASORDA DIDN’T GET PAID, IT WAS ONLY BECAUSE I WROTE ABOUT AND EXPOSED IT. BUT HIS REPS SAID HE WAS, INDEED, GETTING PAID AND DONATING OUR TAX MONEY TO CHARITY. THAT WAS THE PLAN. HOW NICE. AND WHAT ABOUT THE COST OF THE WEEK-LONG EVENT? HUH? THE PHOTOGRAPHER, THE OPEN BAR, THE HOTEL ROOMS, THE FLIGHTS, THE WEEK-LONG OF NO DRO OFFICIALS ON THE JOB B/C THEY WERE BUSY FETING YOU, THE ICE PRINCESS, AND JOHN TORRES?
YOU WANT SOURCES. YOU SHOULD ASK DEAN BOYD WHY HE STOPPED RESPONDING TO MY QUESTIONS. SORRY, BUT I PROTECT MY SOURCES, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT MYERS, TORRES, AND COMPANY ALL SPEND FAR MORE TIME EXACTING REVENGE ON WHISTLEBLOWERS THAN THEY DO ON ACTUAL LAW ENFORCEMENT, WHICH THEY COULDN’T CARE LESS ABOUT.
AND FINALLY, SINCE YOU BELIEVE IT’S PARAMOUNT THAT I CITE MY SOURCES BY NAME, LET’S START WITH YOU. WHY WON’T YOU POST UNDER YOUR REAL NAME, IF YOU’RE SO BRAVE AND THINK OTHERS IN YOUR AGENCY SHOULD BE,TOO? I THINK WE KNOW THE ANSWER. AND IT’S THE SAME REASON I CAN’T DISCLOSE ICE AGENTS’ NAMES.
GEE, I NEVER THOUGHT “FANTASY ISLAND” WAS A REAL PLACE. BUT CLEARLY, YOU HAVE BEACHFRONT PROPERTY THERE, AND AREN’T LEAVING ANY TIME SOON. SAY HI TO TATTOO AND MR. ROURKE FOR ME.

WHY ICE? on March 1, 2007 at 5:36 am

Is his allegation true? Did Tommy Lasorda get paid or not?
SEE MY RESPONSE, ABOVE. THE PLAN WAS TO PAY LASORDA UNTIL I EXPOSED IT. THEN, THE CLAIM WAS THEY WERE PAYING HIM, AND HE WAS GOING TO DONATE THE MONEY TO CHARITY–A DISTINCTION WITHOUT A DIFFERENCE, SINCE IT’S STILL A GIANT WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY. IF–AND THAT’S A BIG IF–HE DIDN’T GET PAID, IT WOULD ONLY HAVE BEEN BECAUSE I CAUGHT THEM WITH THEIR PANTS DOWN AND IT CAUSED THEM A HUGE EMBARRASSMENT THEY WANTED TO AVOID. BUT THE LASORDA PAYMENT WAS ACTUALLY A TINY COST COMPARED TO THE WHOLE WEEKLONG EVENT, WHICH COST TAXPAYERS AT LEAST A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS, AND LIKELY MORE–PER DIEMS, AIRFARE, AND HOTEL ROOMS FOR 3 OR 4 NIGHTS PER PERSON, A PHOTOGRAPHER, LASORDA’S AIRFARE AND HOTEL AND LIMO, CONFERENCE ROOMS AND A WEEK’S WORTH OF SALARY FOR 50 OR MORE PEOPLE, WHO MAKE, ON AVERAGE, $140,000 PER YEAR.

Oh the insanity! First of all I’ll tell you what the problem with ICE is. One agency is trying to handle Immigration and Customs violations. They should be separate! The broken immigration system is a disease that spread through ICE like a bad case of herpes. Skeletor(Chertoff) and the ICE Princess have taken a once proud agency, US Customs Office of Investigations and turned it into an alien catch and release rent a cop agency. WHY ICE’s comments sent me throught he freakin’ roof! Obviously a paper pushing HQ type! “Ice has done more in the last year and a half under Julie Myers than in the previous 36 months.” She has done more to run morale into the ground! “She inherited a culture of animosity borne out of a wildly unpopular merger that is that is subsiding.” Whaaat!? Subsiding my a$$! Its worse than it was now that she is in charge. The agents that work customs cases are left with scraps. I don’t know who WHY ICE is but I’d like to have a face to face and set him/her straight! Debbie your comments are right on!
Later,

TDYINHELL is partially right. Immigration enforcement and customs enforcement should be seperate, but that’s the extent of it. As a legacy INS officer, what I have seen more than anything is an unwillingness by legacy customs agents to do ANYTHING to make the situation better. Believe me, I have no desire to work customs issues. When I was an inspector, I could not imagine doing anything less intelligent or dignified than checking people’s dirty underwear. Intercepting fraudulent documents and then conducting the entire case was far more satisfying. I don’t know where TDYINHELL is working, but given that DRO is removing and apprehending more aliens than ever, I would have to say that he is talking out of his a$$. If anyone thinks there is a sense of apathy or legarthy, then it certainly has not manifest itself in DRO, which by the grace of God has been almost untouched by legacy Customs pukes. Think about it, CUSTOMS and Border Protection has low morale as does Immigration and CUSTOMS Enforcement (at least according to TDYINHELL). What’s the common denominator? Oh yeah, CUSTOMS.
maybe Customs is the herpes that has spread.

DEPORTEM on March 2, 2007 at 9:02 am

For anyone to say that ICE has had some huge turn around because of Julie Myers is absolute B.S.
First of all, ICE was in such disarray and financial hardship that for us not to get better, was impossible. We had no where to go but up. It would be like inheriting the head coaching job at the Oakland Raiders next year. Can they really get any worse?
Obviously someone is drinking the Kool-Aid. This site is visited by many agents in my office, not just the disgruntled people. I guess I should have been born into a famous family with political connections, because apparently that gets you farther ahead in this country than hard work.
Ending catch and release, that one made me laugh.
As to DEPORTEM: Legacy Customs pukes? Which agency did Congress abolish? Oh thats right, the INS.

ICEAGENT on March 2, 2007 at 11:37 am

First off, Debbie, thank you. Your response to my post has, in a much more eloquent manner, proved my point. I welcome your attacks on me, an anonymous poster with a different point of view. There is nothing more I can write that will better expose your bias than your own words.
I don’t want you to name sources, but I want you to be aware that your sources are part of a network that is fabricating information. Here is the most telling sentence I read, and it was actually in your response to a post responding to my post: “There’s no evidence that Tommy Lasorda didn’t get paid (Schlussel, 2007).”
What evidence do you have that he did? Hearsay? Did you learn about hearsay in law school? You must have, yes? What you propogate, and what true journalists attempt to avoid, is circular reporting. The rumor mill. Congratulations – you are the official ICE rumor mill. Outside of hearsay, you have nothing.
One comment to the fellows who posted subsequent to me – let’s drop the USCS v. INS argument. Both agencies believed in their mission, both agencies had talented personnel. Yes, INS was ineffective because of its contradictory missions. Let’s move on – really. Customs investigations are getting shortchanged now because immigration enforcement is a priority. Priorities in the Federal government are cyclical. At some point, fossil smuggling, trademark fraud, and bull semen smuggling will once again be top priorities for the Federal government.
EITHER READING ENGLISH IS NO LONGER A REQUIREMENT FOR ICE AGENTS, OR THEY’VE ELIMINATED READING COMPREHENSION FROM THE TEA EXAM OR WHATEVER EXAM HAS REPLACED IT SINCE THE FORMATION OF ICE. THAT’S GOTTA BE THE CASE, SINCE YOU APPARENTLY MISSED THIS PART OF MY RESPONSE TO YOUR FIRST COMMENT AND FALSE ALLEGATIONS THAT YOU REPEAT IN THIS, YOUR SECOND COMMENT:
“IF LASORDA DIDN’T GET PAID, IT WAS ONLY BECAUSE I WROTE ABOUT AND EXPOSED IT. BUT HIS REPS SAID HE WAS, INDEED, GETTING PAID AND DONATING OUR TAX MONEY TO CHARITY. THAT WAS THE PLAN.”
AND YOU DON’T ADDRESS THE TREMENDOUS COST AND WASTE OF TIME THE WHOLE WEEK-LONG CONFAB (AT WHICH LASORDA SPOKE) WAS. THAT HE WAS THE KEYNOTER SAYS IT ALL–HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IMMIGRATION, EXCEPT, AS I SAID, WHEN IT COMES TO EL DUQUE AND HIS PARTICIPATION IN AN INTERNATIONAL PROSTITUTION RING. NOR DO YOU ADDRESS THE $4.25 MILL YOUR PRECIOUS ICE PRINCESS WASTED ON STUFFED MONKEYS AND OTHER IMPORTANT TRINKETS.
MY RESPONSE DIDN’T PROVE ANYTHING YOU CLAIM IT DID. BUT IT DID PROVE THAT YOU ARE WASTING MY TIME NEEDLESSLY. AND THAT YOU DON’T READ THINGS CLOSELY, SINCE I’M BEING FORCED TO REPEAT LIKE A BROKEN RECORD HOPING YOU’LL ABSORB BY OSMOSIS IN PLACE OF THE NORMAL COMPREHENSION SKILLS YOU APPARENTLY LACK.
AND THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS–NOW I KNOW IN WHICH ICE OFFICE YOU APPARENTLY WORK AND IN WHICH NEARBY SUBURB YOU APPARENTLY LIVE, WHICH HELPS ME NARROW DOWN WHO YOU ARE. SEE, I MAY NOT BE A FORMER INS INVESTIGATIVE AGENT LIKE TORRES, BUT I DO HAVE A LITTLE SKILL IN THAT AREA.

WHY ICE? on March 3, 2007 at 4:29 am

I shouldn’t respound to WHY ICE, but I will. The reason I left the Border Patrol years ago was because I wanted something more challenging than just rounding up aliens. I could have become an INS agent. Most of those guys were Border Patrol flunkies and couldn’t find there a$$ with both hands. I opted for Customs Special Agent. Customs Agents were on the frontline of the drug war. They tackled money laundering, commercial fraud, intellectual property right violations, child pornography, arms and startegic technology violations to name a few. That certaintly beat the hell out of processing illegal aliens. WHY ICE is definitely an INS Agent or DRO or whatever. He/she obviously doesn’t understand customs law and never will. I just look forward to the day I get my beloved Customs OI back.
