Slavery in Southern California
You would think the Southern California press would be all over this story. Where's Foxnews, Bill O'Reilly ? Don't they love these crime stories? But this isn't a cute blonde girl or an adorable middle class couple gone horribly wrong, it's Islamic slavery right here on American soil. Best to ignore it.
Slavery is deeply ingrained in Islam, Mohammed himself was a slaveholder.
An Egyptian former couple have pleaded guilty to enslaving a 10-year-old girl in their southern California home. The girl, who was brought to the US from Egypt, was forced to work 16-hour days and was not allowed to leave the house during her 20-month ordeal.
Abdel Nasser Eid Youssef Ibrahim, 45, and his ex-wife, Amal Ahmed Ewis-abd Motelib, 43, agreed to plead guilty to four federal charges.
They face jail terms of three years when they are sentenced in October.
She was forced to clean their home, take care of their five children, prepare food and do the laundry, for no pay. She lived in squalor in the garage and was told that if she left the house in Irvine, southern California, she might be arrested.
The girl was discovered by immigration officials in April 2002 after an anonymous tip-off. The girl, whose name was not released, was brought to the US by the couple in August 2000 when she was 10.
The Orange County Register has some background...
In 1999, the girl's older sister was working for Ibrahim and Motelib. The pair told the girl's parents that they caught the sister stealing and threatened to report her unless her younger sister worked for them. So the parents decided to allow their younger daughter to work as a domestic servant. The parents agreed to pay 100 Egyptian pounds – about $30 – monthly to Ibrahim and Motelib for 10 years. Once here, the girl's passport was taken. She didn't receive any money and had to work as a nanny and housekeeper.
Apparently, this is somewhat common.
The girl is one of 53 human-trafficking victims in Orange County, according to Bob Jones, with St. Anselm's Cross-Cultural Community Center, a member of the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. Most of the female victims who can apply for green cards choose to stay in this country. The girl has decided to stay. She is a ward of Orange County Superior Court and is living in foster care locally. She is taking summer school classes and aspires to attend college, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Keenan said. She has not been back to Egypt and doesn't want to return, he added.Loose Immigration laws enable this behavior, and political correctness demands a blind eye it's inevitable results.
