Excerpt from RedState
Written by Jay Caruso
On Monday, it was reported by the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General's office that 858 individuals from "special interest countries" (countries that are threats to our nation) should have been deported. They were instead, granted citizenship.
Terrific, right? It gets worse.
But a footnote on page one of the report also states that there were, as of November 2015, an additional 953 individuals about whom the Inspector General couldn't determine if there was a problem with the fingerprint records specifically, but also should have been deported. This other group consisted of members of a slightly broader classification, from countries of concern as well as from neighboring countries where there is a history of fraud.
That amounts to a total of 1,811 individuals granted citizenship who should not have been.
The Department of Homeland Security responded to the report, saying it would review all 1,811 individuals "out of an abundance of caution."
