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.
