Report: Obama Speeds Up Immigration Visas Even If Fraud Is Suspected


Just in time for the election…
News Corps’ news website, the Daily, has an exclusive report that high ranking officials within the Obama U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service are urging rank-and-file officers to grant immigration visas, even if fraud is suspected.
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.
Apparently they’ve been told to approve the visas “against their will”
One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.” The report does not call out any particular officials and indicates that the agency has had a problem with valuing quantity over quality since at least the 1980s.
The big tell all? The amount of pressure to approve visas has increased since Barack Obama took office.
But high-ranking USCIS officials said the pressure has heightened after the Obama administration appointed Alejandro Mayorkas as director in August 2009 during an effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform, bringing with him a mantra of “get to yes.” Internal communications provided to The Daily indicate that the new leadership seemed to fundamentally clash with career agency employees over when to afford the benefit of the doubt, culminating in a whistle-blower investigation into a senior appointee and, ultimately, the agency-wide inspector general inquiry that produced the report.“We recognize their right to interpret things as liberally as possible, but you still have to follow the law,” said one high-ranking official who was unhappy with the current push.
This report goes in line with the whole Obama will cheat the election thing. By granting illegal aliens visas, they will then be able to vote for Obama. This is why the Democrats are so opposed to voter ID laws. Most other countries require ID to vote, so why doesn’t America? The Democrats know that illegal aliens vote for them, so if ID is required it will greatly weed out the phonies. Honestly, we should make it a federal law to require ID to vote. Otherwise, you might as well distribute our ballots out to the world.
