In fact, as the Federale blog said in its definitive discussion on the matter, Shapiro was
a Hearing Officer in an immigration proceeding, not a judge of any sort; not a federal magistrate judge or a District Court judge. Any leak of information should have had no bearing on his decision,
Even more interesting was Shapiro`s false claim that President Bush issued an order to stop arrests and deportations of all illegal aliens in response to the leak of Onyango`s status, but, in fact, Bush was informed about Onyanga`s status before it was leaked and the order issued before the leak. The leak was in response to the order, not the cause of the orderâ€¦
To the Shapiros of this world, Democratic Campaign assertions are US Immigration law. Bush`s stupid chivalry gained nothing for him or his Party.
