Although Rrustem is back with his family, the Department of Homeland Security still is trying to deport him, so the struggle is not over yet. They still are pursuing their suit to drug Rrustem before sending him to the assassins who are waiting for him in Albania.
Furthermore, when I went to the Dallas District Office to pay the bond, the DHS made me wait 6 1/2 hours before they would take the money. All the paper work should have taken no more than 40 minutes.
The DHS made me waste a whole work day simply because they wanted to humiliate me and Rrustem’s relatives who were with me, to remind us who is the boss. They wanted to teach us again that to Michael Chertoff’s Department of Homeland Security we the people of the United States are nothing but a bunch of drugged cockroaches crawling around in a bottle.
Rrustem owes his freedom I think to the brave and tenacious Congressman Gohmert, more than to anyone else. I am extremely grateful to everyone who has followed Rrustem’s case thus far.
If Rrustem actually eventually does get a chance to present his case for asylum to an immigration judge, which the US Constitution (but, so far, not the bureaucrats or courts) says he is entitled to, then we will owe special thanks to Congressman Gohmert and Scott Lively. I wish all our elected officials took seriously their oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States as Congressman Gohmert has done in Rrustem Neza’s case.
Please continue to demand that the bureaucracy respect Rrustem Neza’s constitutional right to have his case heard by a competent immigration judge. From the very start, that is ALL we have been asking for–the right to have Rrustem’s case heard in the immigration court. As the great Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over til it’s over.”
