Probably, and the next name he'll use is another stereotype, probably go with Paco or Nacho, or some sort of name like that.

Engelbrecht said shortly after founding and leading True to Vote and King Street Patriots, she was visited by law enforcement agencies and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), even though outside of filing their tax returns, she and her husband never dealt with any government agency in nearly two decades of running their small business.

“We had never been audited. We had never been investigated, but all that changed upon submitting applications for the non-profit statuses of True the Vote and King Street,” she told the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee.

“Since that filing in 2010, my private businesses, my nonprofit organizations, my family and I have been subjected to more than 15 instances of audit or inquiry by federal agencies,” she added.

Engelbrecht’s personal and business tax returns were audited in 2011 –“each audit going back for a number of years.” Her business was inspected by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 2012 when neither she nor her husband was present. She said she was later fined over $20,000 even though “the agency wrote that it found nothing serious or significant.”

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms audited her business in 2012 and 2013, and the FBI contacted her non-profit group six times since 2010 in an attempt to “cull through membership manifests in conjunction with domestic terrorism cases,” she claimed.

“They eventually dropped all matters and have now redacted nearly all my files,” Engelbrecht said.

“All of these incursions into my affairs began after filing applications for tax-exemption. There is no other remarkable event. There’s no other reason to explain how for decades I went unnoticed, but now find myself on the receiving end of interagency coordination into and against all facets of my life, both personal and private,” she said.

“Bear in mind, distinguished ladies and gentlemen of this subcommittee, these events were occurring while the IRS was subjecting me to multiple rounds of abusive inquiries with request to provide every Facebook and Twitter I’d ever posted, questions about my political aspirations and demands to know the names of groups that I had spoken with, the content of what I had send and everywhere I intended to speak in the coming year,” she added.

“This government attacked me because of my political beliefs, but I refuse to be cast as a victim,” she said.“I am not a victim, because a victim has no options. I do have options, and I intend to use them all to the fullest extent of my capabilities.”

“As an American citizen, I am part of a country that still believes in freedom of speech,” Engelbrecht said.

No DUH, Sherlock, Chains don't normally sell truly authentic tasting cuisine, heck cuisine makes it sound better than it really is....they make crap with cheaper ingredients, thereby changing the orignal recipes and flavors of the dish. while making it easier for the masses to afford their offerings..DUFUS.

1 in every 100 Americans are in jail for breaking the law. You can rest assured that illegal aliens are assimilating perfectly into American life style which includes breaking the law.

Heck... you break the law all the time when you go outside your home. We have so many laws it's insane.

So lets not over amplify the fact that illegal aliens are violating a law that's nothing more than a civil infraction... the equivalent to a speeding ticket in most States.

When an America has a traffic infraction they get ticket as our laws dictate. When a foreigner violates our immigration laws they are to be deported as our laws dictate. The punishment fits the illegal act in both incidences. Don't like it, tough!
