Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
This woman was arrested and is being charged with Immigration fraud. Though this has nothing to do with money as most of our CrimeDiva posts the charge itself is considered a white-collar crime. As I read through the information it was like reading a movie script and frightening.
Today’s CrimeDivas, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, of Chicago was a part of an organization known as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – a terrorist group in Jerusalem during 1969. According to the information, she took part of a bombing of a supermarket and the British Consulate where two university students were killed and twenty others seriously injured. She was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1970, but was released after 10 years as part of an prisoner exchange. She then moved to the West Bank. Sometime during 1995 she immigrated to the U.S. and in 2004 she became a naturalized U.S. citizen.
As fate would have it, and chances brought to light via her becoming a certified navigator in helping new Arabs sign-up for the Affordable Health Care Insurance, it was then discovered who she really was and this horrible act she had taken part of. She is being charged with immigration fraud for hiding that she was once convicted of a terrorist bombing in Israel. The Illinois Department of Insurance revoked Ms. Odeh’s certification as an in-person navigator.
The indictment alleged that when she filed to immigrate to the U.S., “Ms. Odeh omitted her arrest, conviction, and imprisonment overseas, which were material facts for the United States government in determining whether to grant her citizenship,” the U.S. attorney’s statement said. If convicted, Odeh could be stripped of her citizenship and faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
Arab-American activists in Chicago expressed outrage at Ms. Odeh’s indictment. I find this interesting. Either she lied or didn’t lie. The proof is in the ‘application’ plain and simple. So, this doesn’t appear to have anything to do with anti-Arab racism.
According to records, the non-profit organization she worked with stated that she is a leader in the community— an icon. I would hope that the woman she was in 1969 and after being in prison for ten years would have changed her view of harming and killing innocent individuals. Ms. Odeh pleaded not guilty as her supporters marched outside the courthouse holding signs that said, “stop anti-Arab racism.
As I stated, the truth is in the application, did she or did she not provide truthful information when she immigrated to the U.S.!
