Chertoff, Gonzalez Violate Civil Rights Laws: And the Award for “Outstanding Cronyist By Choice” Goes To . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
. . . Emilio T. Gonzalez, Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Gonzalez created a new award: the “Outstanding American by Choice Award,” meant to show us that immigrants are great people.
Apparently, though, he must not really think there are so many great immigrants. Because, guess who won the inaugural “Outstanding American by Choice Award”? You guessed it–Mr. Gonzalez, himself.
Nice cronyist scam: I’ll think up an award, then choose myself for it, then get my crony, Michael Chertoff, to award it to me. Like way totally cool.

And, guess what else? The very existence of this award violates federal civil rights laws, which bar discrimination based on immigration status and national origin. That means that Gonzalez–and his boss, Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff a/k/a “Mr. Burns”–violated the law by having an award that bars eligibility of native-born, non-naturalized U.S. citizens. Too bad the army of DHS lawyers you pay for didn’t seem to notice. And Chertoff, himself a lawyer, was a federal judge and Assistant Attorney General. He knows–or should know–that this is against the law.
But, hey, as long as we’re discriminating against born Americans, it’s okay, right?
Writes one federal agent involved in the immigration biz:

The director of Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Emilio Gonzalez (a naturalized citizen) created an award called the Outstanding American By Choice Award. Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff (Gonzalez’s boss) awarded Gonzalez with the award Gonzalez created. To be eligible for the award you have to be a naturalized citizen. Is this ethical since Gonzalez created the award and it discriminates against native born Americans?

Not only is it not ethical, IT’S ILLEGAL!
Here’s the text from the front page of the USCIS website:

Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff and Deputy Secretary Michael Jackson [DS: Not that Michael Jackson, though it’s sometimes hard to tell which one is running DHS] presented USCIS Director Emilio Gonzalez with the Outstanding American by Choice certificate to commemorate his 40 years as a naturalized U.S. Citizen and his nearly 30 years of public service.

We find it hard to believe Mr. Gonzalez is deserving of any award, except a prison term, since he’s single-handedly jeopardizing our national security from within. As I noted earlier this year, Sultan Farakhan and other CIS contractors and employees exposed the outrageous behavior, which continues, under Gonzalez’s leadership:
He’s giving hundreds of dollars in bonuses to employees who rush through citizenship applications and paperwork based on the number they get processed, which leads to a lot of rubber stamping of dangerous citizen-wannabes and a lot of waste of taxpayer money. Also under Gonzalez’s “leadership” and exposed by Farakhan and others, the applications were not checked against terrorist databases.
That’s an “Outstanding American By Choice”?! Hardly.

We’ll do a massive write in campaign calling for the Outstanding American by Birth Award to be presented to you. In recognition of your unwavering committment to exposing self congratulatory awards, nepotisim and cronieism in the government.
Think they’d go for that one?

The only thing “outstanding” about this is the crassness that these two beauracratic ass clowns exude. The only award that Emilio Gonzalez is eligible is an “Ate My Balls Award”. Emilio Gonzalez ate my ballz! Creepy-looking stunt double for Dr. Evil.

Is it November 2008, yet?
It can’t get here fast enough!

It must be fun working for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
It looks like the folks at the USCIS love group sex and threesomes.
Looking at that picture, I see three fags smiling after screwing each other, and this piece of paper in the front reading:
“The Director of The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Mr. Emilio T. Gonzalez Certifies That Mr. Emilio T. Gonzalez, The Director of The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Has Been An Outstanding Butt-Licker by Choice.”
“We, Messrs Michael Chertoff and Michael Jackson, Testify That Mr. Emilio T. Gonzalez Has Done An Extremely Heavenly Hand And Mouth Job That Could Only Cum From a Lady Like Mr. Emilio T. Gonzalez.”
“We Look Forward For Mr. Bush To Grant Mr. Emilio T. Gonzalez The Highest Civilian Award -The Presidential Medal of Freedom- For His Incredible Ability To Perform Oral Sex, Hand Job, And Double Penetration, All At The Same Time, On The Native-Born Citizens Of These United States.”
“So Help Us Judy Garland.”

Gonzalez deserves the award for being such a good bushbot employee. Greasing the path to the NAU over thousands of dead American bodies, and eliminating once and for all that nuisance called a border. Or is he mexico’s outstanding employee? Bush, too, should get an award for being Calderons best lap-dog employee. Sure can’t seem to remember which country he is supposed to be serving.
