Probe reveals feds pressuring agents to rush immigrant visas even if fraud is feared
The Daily ^ | January 3, 2012 | Sarah Ryley

Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents exclusively obtained by The Daily.

A 40-page report, drafted by the Office of Inspector General in September but not publicly released, details the immense pressure immigration service officers are under to approve visa applications quickly, sometimes while overlooking concerns about fraud, eligibility or security.

One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.”

The report does not call out any particular officials and indicates that the agency has had a problem with valuing quantity over quality since at least the 1980s.

Is there not even ONE (1) Member of Congress that

I’ll bet they don’t have to approve all visa applications - only those from Muslims.

All CHRISTIAN applications are to be rejected out of hand, or so it has been reported. I don’t know about Jewish, but most of them are headed to Israel, not here.

Other religious applicants I don’t know about; they probably have to ask the Mullah about those.

We are being set up for something, that much is pretty obvious.

Why be concerned about the safety of the country when you belong to the elite of the nation, vote yourself a pay raise, do not have to abide by the laws you pass and can legally enrich yourself doing insider trading?

Life is sweet.

This was how Clinton took California. Fresno and other major cities would have stadiums full of hispanic immigrants who would be administered the citizenship oath and presto a US citizen with the right to vote. The crowd was being worked by many democratic party voter registration people. at the end 75,000 newly registered voters for the democratic party in Fresno alone. Winning is the only objective-nothing else matters. Well, I guess Obama is doing the same thing. And it worked for Clinton, along with ballot stuffing and other voter fraud.

and every immigrant adds to the unemployment problem and adds to the welfare costs. All immigration should be halted until unemployment hits 5%.
