Germar Rudolf jailed

Wednesday, October 19, 2005

Germar Rudolf and his wife go to the Chicago office of the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) for a marriage interview. It goes well and ends with the INS certifying that their marriage is real. As they are about to leave, however, two officers of the INS appear and claim that Germar had been sent a letter instructing him to appear at their Chicago office for photographing and fingerprinting, and that he has not complied. Neither Germar nor his lawyer received such a letter, and they have not been shown a copy of it. The failure to appear would not in itself have brought any drastic action; in fact, the INS had had him photographed and fingerprinted long ago at the FBI office in Huntsville, AL. What exacerbates the situation is that recently the German government has made its second request for his extradition and some clerk at the INS, assuming the matter involved a real criminal case, flagged his file. In any case, Germar is detained and sent to a jail about 50 miles from Chicago.
