    Orlando Terrorist Worked for Same Security Contractor That Has Been Moving Illegal Al

    Orlando Terrorist Worked for Same Security Contractor That Has Been Moving Illegal Aliens Into U.S. by the Vanload

    BY DEBRA HEINE JUNE 13, 2016

    Gun control proponents have been blaming the 2nd Amendment for Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen's easy access to guns, but the terrorist had been working for a major Department of Homeland Security contractor for nearly a decade, and had somehow passed two screening and background checks with the company. Concerns about Mateen's "angry, loud, and profane" outbursts apparently went unheeded for years.

    G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. is the same security contractor that has been quietly transporting vanloads of illegal aliens to selected urban areas around the country, as was reported here at PJ Media earlier this month.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, the company has been plagued by a series of high-profile gaffes in recent years and in the wake of its most recent failure, is seeing its stock take a dive in Monday trading.
    G4S PLC is best known here for botching its contract to provide security for the 2012 London Olympics, which forced the U.K. government to mobilize 4,700 troops to make up for a shortfall in personnel. It also faced questions after an employee who was vetting prospective guards told a local television station that she and others were pressured to push through questionable candidates to provide the promised security force on schedule.G4S said at the time that its vetters met an industry standard when selected. The company apologized and covered the cost of the short-staffing.

    A year after the Olympics, G4S Chief Executive Nick Buckles resigned and was replaced by Ashley Almanza, who for the past three years has been trying to reshape the firm into a nimbler, more-profitable company.

    In a statement, G4S said it had employed the 29-year-old Mr. Mateen at a gated retirement community in South Florida. It said that company screening and background checks during his recruitment in 2007 “revealed nothing of concern,” and that “his screening was repeated in 2013 with no findings.”

    G4S said it learned in 2013 that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had questioned Mr. Mateen, “but that the inquiries were subsequently closed.” The company said it wasn’t made aware of any alleged terrorist connections with Mr. Mateen, and was unaware of any subsequent FBI investigations.
    A later statement from G4S changed some of the initial statement’s wordings, calling the 2007 screening “detailed” and saying the 2013 rescreening ended with “no adverse findings.” The later statement deleted the references to the FBI and to the timing of G4S’s knowledge of the FBI’s inquiry, saying that Mr. Mateen had been subject to checks by a U.S. law-enforcement agency with “no findings” reported to G4S.

    G4S said it was fully cooperating with authorities on their current investigations. It declined to comment further on Monday.
    Mateen, who held two firearms licenses and a security officer license, regularly made threats of violence, according to a former G4s employee who worked with him. Daniel Gilroy told the Tampa Bay Times that Mateen was "an angry, loud, profane man who used slurs for gay people, blacks, Jews and women." Gilroy said that he "never used other words to describe them.”
    “He talked about killing people all the time,” Gilroy told The New York Times. And Gilroy wasn’t surprised when he learned of the massacre: “I saw it coming.”Gilroy said Mateen started badgering him and sending dozens of text messages to him daily. Gilroy said he reported Mateen’s behavior to his bosses.

    “I kind of feel a little guilty that I didn’t fight harder,” Gilroy said. “If I didn’t walk away and I fought, then maybe 50 people would still be alive today.” [Emphasis added]
    Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer, said he complained to his employer several times but it did nothing because Mateen was Muslim.

    Also raising alarm bells is the PC-paralyzed company's work with DHS transporting illegal immigrants away from the border and their security work for U.S. nuclear facilities.

    Via Counter Jihad:
    “G4S supports the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CPB), with its operations at the U.S. * Mexico border and with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to transport illegal immigrants in selected urban areas,” the company says in a brochure, titled “Providing Manpower Solutions for Government Services.”The DHS contract with G4S is worth more than $234 million. The contract states that one of the “performance requirements” is helping identify “suspected terrorists” trying to enter the U.S.

    The security contractor also provides security guards and other security services for “90 percent of U.S. nuclear facilities.”

    G4S uses fortified buses to transport “hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants” from city to city and from cities to the U.S.-Mexican border. But earlier this month, Judicial Watch revealed G4S has been quietly moving and releasing van loads of illegal aliens away from the border to interior American cities.

    The immigrants were classified as OTMs — Other Than Mexican — and included mostly Central American illegals but possibly also foreign border-crossers from the Middle East and Pakistan.

    “A security company contracted by the U.S. government is driving the OTMs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector, where they were in custody, to Phoenix,” the Washington-based government watchdog group said. “The firm is called G4S and claims to be the world’s leading security solutions group with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees.”

    It’s not clear if the 29-year-old Mateen worked on any federal contracts or dealt with federal inmates. One of his jobs was to help transport and guard state and local prisoner youths in Florida. The subsidiary he worked for — G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. — is based in Jupiter, Fla., which is located just south of Mateen’s home in Fort Pierce, Fla.

    It’s also not immediately known if he had federal security clearances, or what kind of security background check G4S administered before hiring Mateen.
    According to Counter Jihad, Mateen's co-workers reported that he "openly praised ISIS in conversations," yet was still allowed to guard prisoners.

    G4S congratulated Mateen for five years of service in a 2012 company newsletter.

    Judicial Watch: DHS Quietly Releasing Vanloads of Illegal Aliens Into the United States


    While the nation focuses on the 2016 Republican and Democrat presidential campaigns, the Obama administration has been continuing its lawless policies on the Mexican border. Judicial Watch reports that the Department of Homeland Security has been "quietly transporting" illegal aliens from the border to Phoenix and letting them go without processing or issuing court appearance documents. JW's Border Patrol sources say that this week alone, the government transferred 35 "Other Than Mexican" (OTM) immigrants 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station. From there, they were allowed to go their separate ways.

    Judicial Watch was on the ground when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at a Phoenix Greyhound station.
    The OTMs are from Honduras, Colombia, El Salvador and Guatemala and Border Patrol officials say this week’s batch was in custody for a couple of days and ordered to call family members in the U.S. so they could purchase a bus ticket for their upcoming trip from Phoenix. Authorities didn’t bother checking the identity of the U.S. relatives or if they’re in the country legally, according to a Border Patrol official directly involved in the matter. American taxpayers pick up the fare for those who claim to have a “credible fear,” Border Patrol sources told JW. None of the OTMs were issued official court appearance documents, but were told to “promise” they’d show up for a hearing when notified, said federal agents with firsthand knowledge of the operation.A security company contracted by the U.S. government is driving the OTMs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector where they were in custody to Phoenix, sources said. The firm is called G4S and claims to be the world’s leading security solutions group with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees. G4S has more than 50,000 employees in the U.S. and its domestic headquarters is in Jupiter, Florida. Judicial Watch is filing a number of public records requests to get more information involving the arrangement between G4S and the government, specifically the transport of illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to other parts of the country. The photo accompanying this story shows the uniformed G4S guard that transported the OTMs this week from Tucson to Phoenix.

    Outraged Border Patrol agents and supervisors on the front lines say illegal immigrants are being released in droves because there’s no room to keep them in detention. “They’re telling us to put them on a bus and let them go,” said one law enforcement official in Arizona. “Just move those bodies across the country.” Officially, DHS denies this is occurring and in fact earlier this year U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske blasted Border Patrol union officials for denouncing this dangerous catch-and-release policy. Kerlikowske’s scolding came in response to the congressional testimony of Bandon Judd, chief of the National Border Patrol Council, the labor union that represents line agents. Judd told lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee that illegal immigrants without serious criminal convictions can be released immediately and disappear into the shadows. Kerlikowske shot back, telling a separate congressional committee: “I would not stand by if the Border Patrol was — releasing people without going through all of the formalities.”

    Yet that is what the Obama administration has been doing right under the noses of the Republican-run Congress.

    Judd, the Border Patrol Union chief, told senators during a judiciary hearing last month that about 80% of apprehended illegal immigrants are released into the United States. And that isn't even the worst of it.
    In what Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz called "the most infuriating thing" he's seen in this government yet, Immigration and Customs enforcement has in a three-year period released more than 86,000 criminal illegal aliens into unsuspecting American communities.

    "These are people who were here illegally, got caught committing a crime, were convicted of that crime, and then instead of deporting them, they were just released back out into the United States of America," Chaffetz said during an Oversight hearing on April 28 titled Criminal Aliens Released by the Department of Homeland Security.

    Altogether, the criminals aliens had been convicted of more than 231,000 crimes, Chaffetz said. "In 2015, 196 of these people had been convicted of homicide and ICE released them back into the public rather than deporting them." He continued, "124 of those who were convicted between fiscal year 2010 and 2015, went on to commit homicide."
