    USA: Fake Immigration Deports Woman

    Hemet Couple Arrested for Kidnapping and for Impersonating U.S. Marshal Deputy
    United States Attorney Laura E. Duffy announced the unsealing today of a five-count indictment charging Gregory Raymond Denny, Jr. and his wife, Karen Denny, of Hemet, California, with conspiracy to commit kidnapping and kidnapping while impersonating a federal officer making an arrest. The indictment alleges that the defendants conspired to falsely arrest and subsequently ďdeportĒ a Hemet woman to the Philippines. Gregory Denny also faces additional charges. The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested the defendants earlier today in Hemet.
    According to the indictment, on January 15, 2010, Gregory and Karen Denny went to the victimís residence in Hemet, California where she lived with her husband. Gregory Denny falsely announced that he was a law enforcement officer, handcuffed the victim and informed her that he was going to deport her from the United States. Karen Denny also participated in the false arrest. Gregory and Karen Denny then transported the victim to the Murietta Border Patrol Station where Gregory Denny falsely identified himself as a U.S. Marshal and presented a false badge and credentials. Gregory Denny also falsely informed law enforcement that the victim was the subject of a fugitive arrest warrant and asked Border Patrol to take the victim into custody. After Border Patrol agents refused, Gregory and Karen transported the victim to their residence in Hemet, California, where Gregory Denny called the victimís husband and directed him to buy the victim a plane ticket to the Philippines. A few hours later, the defendants transported the victim to the San Diego airport. Enroute, Gregory Denny informed the victim that if she did not leave the United States he would arrest her and her husband and they would go to jail for five years. Once at the airport, Gregory Denny escorted the victim to the security checkpoint, falsely identified himself as a U.S. Marshal, presented credentials and a badge and informed Transportation Security Administration personnel that he was escorting a prisoner to a flight. Gregory Denny then escorted the victim to the boarding gate area.
    The defendants are expected to be in court on Monday, August 9, 2010.

    An indictment itself is not evidence that the defendants committed the crimes charged. The defendants are presumed innocent until the government meets its burden in court of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

    ^Actually, I don't think she was an illegal, in the true sense of the word. She had entered the country legally, but her visa had expired and she and her husband were in the process of sorting out the visa extension. Sorry no link, but I think I may have read this in a paper here in the Philippines.
