WE NEED AN IMMIGRATION OVERHAUL
"It appears that thousands of green cards have simply gone missing. In the wrong hands, green cards may enable terrorists, criminals and undocumented aliens to remain in the United States," said DHS Inspector General John Roth.
The problem was 'far worse than originally thought," according to Roth.
In September, Roth found that because of issues with USCIS digital fingerprint records, the U.S. government mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants who had pending deportation orders. Over the last three years, USCIS received more than 200,000 reports from approved applicants about missing cards.
“We must take concrete steps to remove any security gaps that can be exploited by terrorists and criminals. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services can assist such efforts by strengthening quality controls and its procedures to target lost, stolen or erroneously issued green cards,” said Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson.
