Skip to comments.Feds say they will reform student visa system to get officers updated information

Department of Homeland Security officials said Friday that they are improving the student visa system after a friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev re-entered the country with an invalid visa.
The officials said the department was reforming the student visa system to make sure customs and border officers get almost instant updates on visa information.
Azamat Tazhayakov, a Kazakh student and friend of Tsarnaev, re-entered the United States in January with a visa that was no longer valid because he had stopped attending classes at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. That information was apparently not relayed to customs officers.
Tazhayakov, 19, was among three friends arrested earlier this week and charged with helping remove evidence from Tsarnaevs dorm room or with lying about it to federal authorities.
Tazhayakov had attended classes with Tsarnaev.

Boston thanks you Mr. Obama.
We need comprehensive immigration ENFORCEMENT.
Maybe next they can pass a new law showing them how to tie their shoes or walk and chew gum.
Getting officers updated info, who would have *thunk* of that.
Hot damn! < /S >
When did foreign nationals stop going through both a Customs and Immigration (INS) check point?? Customs checks for contraband, immigration checks passports and visas. Customs is a part of the Treasury Department, INS answers to the Department of Justice. Who checks the list of those not allowed to enter the US?
What’s going on??
Curious as to whether something like the could have been avoided with any laws we had in place before DHS plagued this country?
Another promise you can take to the bank!
Take your time, fellas. It's only like eleven+ years after 9/11/2001.
June 2012 - Obama executive order to halt deportation of anyone under age 30
July 2012 - Tamerlan returns from Russia
January 2013 - Azamat Tazhayakov re-enters from Kazakhstan
Janet keeps telling us the system works.
She’s just funnin’ us.
[I bet she is pondering the Congressional hearings that are sure to come.]
Yada, yada, yada. How about just doing their jobs.
What is that saying, the more corrupt a country is, the more laws it has?
So if the Feral Government had properly applied the visa laws, the bombing would not have happened.
And if the Feral Governent had properly applied the welfare laws for citizens not immigrants, this would not have happened.
And if the Feral Government had listened to the multiple intellegence warnings the bombing would not have taken place.
And if the Feral Government had actualy watched those on the watch list, they would not have been able to bomb the marathon.
And if the State Government had enforced the criminal charges on the bombers like they do on citizens the bombers would not have been able to bomb because they would have been in prison or deported by the Feral Government.
And if the Federal government would have actually read the visa reports showing that the Perps were traveling back and forth between the countries that they got protection visa from so they would not be killed by being in those countries that they were commuting to, they would not have kept their visas and could not have murdered and maimed so many citizens.
So, we need to increase taxes to hire more FUBAR Government because they were doing such a fine job, we need more of the same right?
I thought the Democrats PROMISED to NEVER support any border enforcement until they got their Amnesty through. This is strange.
(and that is true - they are holding the southern border hostage to Amnesty and have been for years)
