South African man obtained citizenship illegally, had murdered two Alaska women: Department of Justice


A federal grand jury in Alaska has indicted a South African national with unlawfully procuring naturalization in the U.S.

According to court documents, between June and September 2019, Brian Smith, 52, applied for and obtained naturalization in the U.S. by making false statements in connection to his naturalization application.

Smith falsely responded to questions asking whether he had been involved in killing, badly hurting or sexually assaulting someone and if he had ever committed, assisted in committing or attempted to commit a crime he was not arrested for. Smith answered “No” to all these questions, when at the time of the application, he had committed related crimes, including two murders that involved torture and sexual assaults.

Smith was convicted of these crimes in February in Alaska Superior Court.

Smith is charged with one count of unlawful procurement of naturalization in violation of 18 U.S.C. §1425(a) and one count of unlawful procurement of naturalization by an ineligible person in violation of 18 U.S.C. §1425(b). The defendant will make his initial court appearance on a later date before a U.S. Magistrate Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska. If convicted, he faces the revocation of his certificate of naturalization.


    • He will be. Sentencing in June (July?)
      Should get the standard 99 years.
      I wonder if we could extradite him to SA? Don’t think they would take him though.

      All this will do is deny his voting rights as we pay for his upkeep until he’s dead.
      Personally I hope the Native Brotherhood gets to him in jail.

    • He’s not illegal.
      A foolish, lifelong, retired, Federal ICE employee brought him here & married him right away so he was totally legal.
      The they went through the citizen process (which she was a expert at)
      The old fool is 22 years older then this POS.
      She met him online while gambling.

  1. His wife, Stephanie Bissland, works for U.S. immigration in Anchorage. She says she’s sticking by this monster. I’d bet my dog that she got him in illegally and or knew about his murders. She has no shame. She makes my skin crawl.

    • She didn’t know what he was up to.
      She’s an old fool and he used her …played her like a fiddle.
      All legal.
      Met online ….courted online …. she visited S. Africa to meet him …. then brought him here & married him right away … then the citizen process …. all legal.
      Bissland retired from ICE many years ago. she is 74 …. and Smith is 52.
      But your right …. this retarded old fool is sticking by him.
      She sat behind him everyday in court while the State showed how he drank, picked up prostitutes then tortured & killed women for fun.
      He was not an illegal person …. everything by the book (according to our ICE ruels)

  2. He made “false” statements. Under current conditions, illegals are not obliged to make “any” statements. We’ve seen the results of this nationwide as innocent LEGAL citizens are murdered by feral “newcomers.” Expect more of the same until the mentally ill empathizers enabling this influx are personally effected by it.

  3. No photo? That would be good as he is cruising our fair city, looking for opportunities to share his culture, since diversity is our strength, I have heard.

  4. He should have been killed for these murders. Capital punishment in the prison systems would help in 4 ways.
    1. Ensure that no murderers are released back into society.
    2. Help control the World population
    3. Decrease our overall cost of prisons.
    4. Maybe get people to thinking before killing someone.
    There should be an automatic death policy for anyone killing a police officer on duty or not.

  5. ICE hard at work… this way the illegal can be deported instead of serving his as a convicted murderer…

  6. You will note he was granted citizenship in 2019, who was the president at the time? C’mon you can admit it was your hero #45.
