More than 800 Immgrants Accedentially Granted U.S Citizenship


                            More than 800 Immagranrs accedentially granted U.S Citizenship 


                                  




               The U.S government accedentially gave about 856 immgrants American citizenship from 
countries of concern to homeland security and immigration fraud. What the inspector from Homeland Security found was that immigrants had used different names and birthdays. Immigration Services did not catch these action because their fingerprints were not present in government databases.


           Occording to DHS, some of the immgrants had qualified for citizenship, but they did not commit fraud simply because of the lack of their fingerprints. Inspector General John Smith noticed that these particular immigrants were all from "special interest countries" who've had a history of immigration fraud and are a national security concern for the United States.


           In the end, DHS has stated that this has been a long problem for immigration officials to be keeping up with paper based record with fingerprints that cannot be searched electronically. As many as 315,000 immgrant fingerprints are missing from federal databases who are fugitive criminals with an order of deportation. I would have thought the American government would be more organized and careful on who they let into this country. Since they have prohibited or made it very difficult for  immigrants to come to this country since 1815. Do you think the US should be more strict on who they grant American citizenship to? 



This connects to US history when immigrants back in the 1980's had to go through many stations just to get to this country. And the US back then made it hard for them to enter into this country. Although the US now is having many issues, keeping track of who's entering this country.

  1. If the U.S government wants to keep immigrants out so badly they should be able to be more organized and hire more people if needed

  2. The fact that any immigration occurred "accidentally" is startling. This type of event is evident of a weak immigration system in need of reform. Immigration workers need to realize that they are dealing with human lives, and not just pieces of paper. Workers at homeland security need to be rigorously tested for thoroughness to ensure a just immigration process. The system may also benefit from a biometric upgrade, as there are "as many as 315,000" immigrants with no finger print records.

  3. I think this is funny. A country like the US who wants to look tough and are tearing families apart, are screwing up filing their papers. Thats like some buff macho boxer hyping the crown as he walks towards the ring and then tripping and face planting.

  4. The U.S government needs to be more organized for letting 856 immigrants into the US and giving them citizenship.

  5. I think the US should be more strict of who to allow to enter the US because allowing criminals to enter will not benefit for this society.

  6. The US needs to process and have better organization. These slip ups make people thinking of illegal immigration more confident that they will succeed because we are not good at catching these issues on time.

  7. I think the government should have more strict on who they grant American citizenship. It would prevent some violence if the person that America granted citizenship was a criminal.

  8. The USA should be less lenient with the immigrants they permit to come into the states. You can never tell someones background by looking at them, so by letting them in is basically saying you are prepared for any violence that may occur.
