Whenever the conversation of immigration comes up, generally the focus of the conversation turns to the Mexican border or to the issue of the need to punish employers who intentionally hire illegal aliens. What is almost never talked about is how aliens who have green cards and United States citizenship may well have gamed the immigration system and commit fraud that goes undetected. The issue of immigration benefit fraud was identified by the 9/11 Commission as playing a major role in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and other terrorist attacks within our country.
My goal is to illuminate all of the components of the immigration system that fail to effectively carry out their missions and imperil the safety and well being of our country and our citizens.
This past Friday, July 27th I had an unusual guest on my radio program, “The Michael Cutler Hour,” an old friend and former colleague of the INS, Jerry Casale who recently retired from the agency known as USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Service) as an adjudications officer,where he was involved in the adjudication of applications for residency and naturalization which resulted in United States citizenship.
His insight into the lack of integrity to the process by which our government, in essence, hands out the keys to the kingdom!
If you missed his interview on my program, here is a link to the podcast of his appearance:
To provide even more evidence of the lack of integrity to the process, especially under the Obama administration- here is a link to a news conference held by Senator Jeff Sessions and the presidents of the unions that represent the employees of ICE and the Border Patrol. The focus of this news conference included the way that applications that will be adjudicated in conjunction with President Obama’s executive order to essentially carry out the DREAM Act and provide more than one million illegal aliens with employment authorization. Incredibly, the president of the union representing those adjudications officers stated that the aliens who apply to participate in this program will not be required to provide any documentation to prove that they are eligible to receive that benefit!
Here is the link to a video of that news conference:
You cannot make this stuff up!
