Foreign woman is thrown out of America for carrying lingerie and condoms in her bags.
That line about sexual assault came from angry man who was holding a women alone in the room with him against her will. And it’s not like ICE agents haven’t raped women detainees before. The sad thing is that if she had freaked out and, say, gouged out one of his eyeballs with a pen so she could make her escape, some prosecutor would have tried to make it seem like she was the bad guy.
They eventually let her go, but not without further threats and orders not to re-enter the United States.
Finally, in addition to everything else that’s wrong with this series of incidents, think for a moment about what the ICE agents thought they were doing: They believed they had discovered that an attractive and sexually active young woman was coming here to have sex with members of the American male population. And they tried to stop her.

Anyone familiar with Houston will know, from all the headlines lately, that city officials have been focusing a lot of attention to on a particular gentlemen’s club. According to police, Treasures, the Galleria-area cabaret, is a haven for crime that needs frequent police attention.
Houston vice cops have certainly been offering that personal, frequent attention to the popular nightspot. In fact, so much attention, that surveillance video has been captured of the officers eagerly “investigating” the club atmosphere.
“They’re in there drinking beer, having a good time and getting dances from pretty girls,” said attorney Casey Wallace, who represents Treasures.
The video in question depicts a Houston police Sergeant letting his fingers wander while getting a private dance. The Sergeant can also be seen kissing the breasts of the dancer in public.
In the September 2009 video, the sergeant’s partner also is seen groping another dancer on the same night.
In fact, police records show during their investigation, the two cops over two days, bought alcohol and table dances totaling $850 of taxpayer money.
According to the police report, there is a very good reason: “In order to keep from looking suspicious.”
And what was the result of the two-day operation?
“(There was) not a single arrest, not a single criminal charge, nothing but some officers inside having a good time in Treasures,” Wallace claimed.
Police records reveal similar visits to the club. In April, three undercover officers got table dances, and “observed numerous sexually-oriented business violations,” but chose not to make any arrests. They did write “investigation to continue.” Three days later, the same cops went in again, and again they got table dances and observed violations. But again, no arrests were made. And again they determined, “investigation to continue.”
And then there’s a case in May, where undercover cops came to the club and officers negotiated for two dancers “to engage in oral sex with each other.” But instead of arresting them immediately, the cops “observed the suspects” doing the sex act and “waited for this to be completed.”
By the way, the two officers in the video have since been transferred to other divisions. Go figure.
