“Homeland Security” Gives Deported Illegal Aliens from “Special Interest Countries” U.S. Citizenship
In the latest of many gaffes at the mammoth agency created after 9/11 to keep the nation safe, at least 858 illegal immigrants with deportation orders were mistakenly granted U.S. citizenship. It gets better; the foreigners are from “special interest countries” of concern to national security, according to a federal audit that blasts the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Even for DHS, which is charged with preventing terrorist attacks but is well known for a multitude of security lapses, this seems like a bit much. The illegal immigrants fooled our nation’s Homeland Security agency by using different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship. It was that simple, which makes it even more frightening. “This happened because neither the digital fingerprint repository at DHS nor the repository at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) contains all old fingerprint records of individuals previously deported,” according to an announcement released by the DHS Inspector General along with the scathing report. That means this could be the tip of the iceberg because there’s about 148,000 old fingerprint records of illegal aliens from special interest countries who had deportation orders or who are criminals or fugitives that are not available. This is because they have yet to be digitized so their fingerprints are missing from government databases. – READ MORE
