**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
While the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) flack boys emphatically tell you that none of the aliens here or the plot were “tied to terrorism,” they actually have absolutely no idea of that. One thing they aren’t sure to tell you (but I will), is that almost all of the aliens Dr. Ramesh fraudulently helped get citizenship without taking the test in English are Muslims, most of them Arab Muslims.
He was working with Dr. Walid Salah, a Muslim Arab, whom ICE and the feds allowed to flee the country. Without interrogating and thoroughly investigating him, they can’t be sure in the least that this plot and these aliens were not tied to terrorism. In fact, it looks like–since most of these aliens were Lebanese Shi’ite Muslims in Dearborn (also not noted in the article)–this was some sort of pan-Hezbollah operation.
But, of course, we’ll never know for sure because while this Indian doctor takes the fall, the key player and organizer–an Arab Muslim doctor–was allowed to flee the country. SOP for the feds.
A West Bloomfield psychiatrist pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to commit naturalization fraud, admitting he falsified diagnoses to help people gain U.S. citizenship without passing the English-proficiency portions of naturalization exams.
Between 1999 and 2001, Chilakamarri Ramesh, 54, worked at a Dearborn immigration clinic called Four A’s Hope Global Psychological Evaluation Center and performed psychiatric evaluations on naturalization applicants, according to federal agents.
This place was a well-known immigration fraud mill, getting a ton of Shi’ite Muslim aliens citizenship through fraud. Those seeking citizenship must take the citizenship test in English. The only way to avoid that is to get a doctor to certify that you don’t have legal capacity–ie., you are mentally disabled. That’s why a psychiatrist–Dr. Ramesh–was needed for the scam.
Ramesh falsely diagnosed applicants with mental retardation, post-traumatic stress disorder, learning disabilities and dementia.
According to the indictment, Ramesh signed 953 false and fraudulent naturalization waiver forms for 492 citizenship applicants in Dearborn, Cleveland, St. Louis, and Chicago. . . .
Khaalid Walls, an ICE spokesman, said investigators didn’t find links to terrorism in the case.
Sure, they didn’t. Because they weren’t looking.
As part of his plea Ramesh told U.S. District Judge Julian Abel Cook Jr. that he conspired with another doctor, Walid Salah, a fugitive since 2003. . . .
Ramesh has been an assistant professor of psychiatry at Wayne State University since 1990 and has staff privileges at St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital. . . .
Ramesh, who is free on a $10,000 personal bond, could get up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. His sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 18.
Looks like Dr. Ramesh made a nice chunk of change from the Muslims for all of this immigration fraud. Check out the satellite photo of where he lives. You can’t see the home. It’s at the secluded end of a wooded court in the fancy shmancy Royal Point neighborhood of West Bloomfield, Michigan, where the homes are gigantimongous.
Throw the book at this guy. And ask yourself why ICE allowed his partner in crime–the real mastermind of the operation, the Muslim Dr. Walid Salah to leave. Like I said, this is Standard Operating Procedure for the feds. This case was filed back in August of 2002, so Dr. Salah was given plenty of time (and opportunity) to leave.
There’s a reason he left. Someone tipped him off that he was under investigation. And that same someone let him leave American soil.
Just like they did with Hezbollah financier Talal Chahine.
**** UPDATE: Read the superceding indictment, filed in October 2008. (Again, the original indictment was filed in 2002.) The masterminds of this immigration fraud are identified as Walid Salah, Ph. D. a/k/a Al Kailane Walid a/k/a Walid Kailane and Samir Al-Kilaine.
