Menendez, Clinton State Dept. Helped Secure Visa for Fugitive Banker’s Daughter

By Jonathan Dienst. Kevin Nious and Joe Valiquette

New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez interceded on behalf of an Ecuadorian woman who was banned from traveling to the U.S. because of allegations she had engaged in visa fraud.

The woman, Estafania Isaias, is the daughter of a fugitive from Ecuador convicted in absentia for bank fraud and whose relatives in Florida made significant campaign donations to the New Jersey Democrat’s 2012 campaign and the Democratic Party.

Current and former U.S. government officials tell NBC 4 New York that Estefania Isaias was barred from traveling to the U.S. in 2007 because she allegedly lied on visa applications to bring immigrant women to the U.S. to work as maids at her parents’ mansion in Coral Gables, Fla.

U.S. officials alleged Estefania Isaias had falsely claimed the women were her personal business assistants. Sources familiar with the matter said U.S. consular officials in Ecuador categorized her alleged wrongdoing as a form of “human smuggling.”

  1. These two people have there own reasons but have no complaints with the Chinese or Russians and who ever else. Cuba is in our backyard and relations should have been normalized years ago.
