[su_right_ad]A woman who is part of wealthy Ecuadoran family who gave money to Democrats was granted entry to the United States after she’d been banned.

The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.

It was one of several favorable decisions the Obama administration made in recent years involving the Isaías family, which the government of Ecuador accuses of buying protection from Washington and living comfortably in Miami off the profits of a looted bank in Ecuador.

The family, which has been investigated by federal law enforcement agencies on suspicion of money laundering and immigration fraud, has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to American political campaigns in recent years. During that time, it has repeatedly received favorable treatment from the highest levels of the American government, including from New Jersey’s senior senator and the State Department.

The Obama administration has allowed the family’s patriarchs, Roberto and William Isaías, to remain in the United States, refusing to extradite them to Ecuador. The two brothers were sentenced in absentia in 2012 to eight years in prison, accused of running their bank into the ground and then presenting false balance sheets to profit from bailout funds. In a highly politicized case, Ecuador says the fraud cost the country $400 million.[su_csky_ad]

    Well, this is a slap in the face to the less fortunate who are trying to get into this country legally. If this be true as the article describes, Obama should be ashamed.

    We all know with wealth comes privilege, always has always will, but it is embarrassing when it is so blatant and it’s your party that was exposed.

    It’s not like it never happened before that rich donors got special treatment. Think Halliburton. Or the favorable laws passed by Congress that helps out corporate campaign contributors.

    This is wrong and is a blight on the WH. Deprt the theiving bankers and let their country retrieve the stolen funds and incarcarate these people.
