U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Fails Miserably


A new report by the DHS inspector general’s office showed that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has failed miserably to crack down on the estimated 4 to 8 million foreigners who have overstayed their visas, ­a supposed priority in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, which highlighted how lax enforcement against visa overstayers has enabled many al Qaeda operatives to stay in the country.

Of the 301,046 leads the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency received in 2004 on possible visa violators, the inspector general found, only 4,164 were formally pursued, resulting in just 671 apprehensionsВ­-few of which will actually result in deportation

Kinda makes you wonder how Bush’s “guest worker” amnesty plan would work doesn’t it? How could they screen 20 million illegals and then ensure that they leave the country when their time is up? How could it not create an even larger stampede across our porous border?
