An immigration official who stopped Homeland Security agents from arresting the alleged gun supplier of the San Bernardino terrorists the day after the attack, and then lied about it to department investigators, is to receive an award for her work.
Irene Martin allegedly prevented armed officers from detaining Enrique Marquez, who was scheduled to be interviewed alongside his Russian wife Mariya Chernyk, a government report has stated.
Yet despite her deliberate obstruction, where she seemingly blocked five armed Department of Homeland Security agents, she has been nominated for the Secretary's Award for Valor.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
Department of Homeland Security officials refuse to say what Martin did to earn the award which is described as 'the highest departmental recognition for extraordinary acts of valor by an employee or group, occurring while on or off duty' and is reserved for 'those who have demonstrated extraordinary courage in a highly dangerous, life-threatening situation or emergency under extreme stress and involving a specific act of valor, such as saving another person's life or property.'
FoxNews has applied for a Freedom of Information Act request to establish what the award is for.
And while this crap is going on, the head of the place is demanding that "Gun control is a matter of national security!"
