Sunnyside Attorney Charged With Immigration Fraud

Dumitru’s law firm on Skillman Avenue (Google)

March 29, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

A Sunnyside immigration attorney has been charged with asylum fraud and making false statements on asylum applications for clients.

Andreea Dumitru, whose law firm is located at 48-23 Skillman Avenue, is alleged to have submitted fraudulent forms for over 180 clients with statements and items she knew to be false, according to the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office.

The indictment alleges that between 2012 and 2017, Dumitru signed off on false stories about her clients’ criminal histories, personal narratives or alleged persecution.

“Dumitru is alleged to have used her trusted position to defraud the government, submitting fraudulent documents to claim asylum,” said Angel M. Melendez, of Homeland Security Investigations. “Her alleged actions took up time and resources while those with valid asylum claims waited in line. Now, Dumitru will enter a courtroom as a defendant to face the consequences for her alleged actions.”

Dumitru is charged with one count of asylum fraud, which has a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, and one count of and making false statements, which carries a maximum sentence of five years.

Dumitru was also the former business partner of Gene Friedman, also known as the “Taxi King”. Both were accused last year of failing to pay over $5 million to the MTA.

real truth hurts a little more

Yes, and in the pre-columbian “America” Natives did not tolerate trespassing by other “native” clans. Entering another’s tribal territory often resulted in wars, and treated like invasions.

In fact, Native American tribes held war captives as slaves, and their woman as additional “wives”.

Evidence, please.

Their cultures varied. You can’t claim these as facts for all of the people who preceded what we have become.

Actually they can over from the Bering Staits when frozen over. No one is “native” in any land. Everyone came from somewhere else. Unless you live in the Crescent Valley you are technically an immigrant everywhere.

Ballad in Fred minor

Fred is angry. Sunnyside is the third neighborhood he is getting priced out of since his move to the big apple from Cape Coral, Florida in ‘09. Fred’s parents paid his first years rent for a shared loft in Bushwick with 8 other “working” actors and actresses. Although he forgets sometimes, his folks still pay his cell phone and internet bills:) Fred coerces his Brooklyn bike buds to come up to Queens once in a while. He’s running out of excuses for not meeting them at a bar, but his friends are smart and they feel bad, so they entertain him in his 6 floor walk-up 350 sq ft studio. Fred is angry. But Fred finds comfort and a false sense of enlightenment with his bicycle. He can bike anywhere he wants to, when he wants to. Fred hates cars because, in his head, they symbolize a higher class in society that he’s knows deep down he will never be a part of. Plus, they pollute the air. By protesting against parking, Fred is saving lives and saving the planet. “Cars are over!” He yells as he peddles down Skillman and into Manhattan for a double shift, waiting tables at cafe 77. Fred is angry because he’s recently come to the realization that he might have to ask his mom to move her new office out of his bedroom. Fred is furious. His parents will have to buy him a used car to get to work down there. But he finds a small amount of pleasure in going back home and boasting to his high school buds about NY. We wish you luck Fred.

She didn’t oppose the bike lane. She didn’t have a sign in her window. The new tenant likely will.

Tree of Liberty- I don’t claim to know it all, I just know after I have read an article I would be able to discuss the facts and details of that article. You sound bitter because I keep exposing you for the fake you are. You probably should take a remedial reading class.

Tommy Girl, one thing to disagree. But to always associate one’s you disagree with, with right wing, Trump or Fox News as you do for your argument, it’s getting a bit worn out. And must you always have to make your self feel so superior by stating how stupid someone else is…many days ago one would take care of someone like you in the school yard, but unfortunately today its a hate crime Tommy Girl. Oh Yeah, I just typed this with my middle finger. My middle finger salutes you.

…because nothing says “liberty” like an unaccountable goon squad such as I.C.E.

Your definition of liberty is pretty strange.

I stand by unaccountable goon squad, regardless of the fact that some of their agents have died in service.
“In Massachusetts, civil rights groups filed a petition Thursday in the state’s Supreme Judicial Court asking it to stop immigration agents from arresting people at courthouses, saying it violates the rights of defendants, victims and witnesses, as well as the accused. The case is the first of its kind and comes as Legal Aid Society attorneys protested Thursday in New York City. This is lawyer Jared Trujillo.

Jared Trujillo: “I’m Jared Trujillo. I’m an attorney at the Legal Aid Society. ICE has been entering these courts with something called administrative warrants. Administrative warrants are not issued by a judge. They’re issued solely by ICE. ICE is effectively writing their own warrants to come into the courts. What we are asking is that they not be allowed to come into the courts without a judicial warrant, a judicial warrant signed by a judge.”

“Trump’s trip to California comes as the San Francisco spokesperson for ICE has resigned, saying Trump administration officials have repeatedly and falsely exaggerated the number of people who evaded arrest after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned the community about impending ICE raids across Northern California. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and others have claimed up to 800 people were able to avoid being detained by ICE because of the mayor’s warning. The former San Francisco spokesperson for ICE, James Schwab, says the real number is far lower, and that he quit “because I didn’t want to perpetuate misleading facts.”
