As if Obama’s plan to cut National Guard troops on the Mexican border by 75% at a time when there has been a sudden surge in border crossers wasn’t leaving the United States vulnerable enough, now a report has revealed a new insanity – lowered standards for granting immigration visas:
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….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 cites new Obama USCIS boss Alejandro Mayorkas having adopted a new slogan for agents processing visa applications: “GET TO YES“. Agents deemed “too tough” on visa applicants were dealt with harshly by department brass:
At least 5 agency veterans seen as being too tough on applicants were either demoted, or given the choice between a demotion or a relocation from Southern California — where their families were — to San Francisco and Nebraska, according to sources and letters of reassignment… Those kind of threats have caused lower-level employees to fall in line, sources said. “People are afraid,” said one longtime manager, who requested anonymity for fear of being fired. “Integrity only carries people so far because they’ve got to pay the rent.”
When you consider that more than 40% of the 11-20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. currently were once temporary visa holders who overstayed their legal time limit, the enormity of these new lax standards becomes clear.
Remember also the report from January 2011, which showed that DHS “loses track” of more than 200,000 visa holders illegally remaining in the country every single year, and also that at least six of the 9/11 hijackers had overstayed their visas while planning their mass murder against Americans.
So you have to ask yourself: why would the Obama Administration purposely loosen standards on granting immigration visas that are a proven national security threat?
Is this outright treason? Or just another illegal alien voter registration drive for “Obama 2012″?
