So-called “Diversity Visa” is Terror Threat
Posted by Joshua Price on December 3, 2007
There is an underreported story on the immigration blog at The Houston Chronicle. According to the blog:
A little-known immigration lottery that grants 50,000 visas a year poses a ”pervasive fraud risk” and could be used by terrorists with false documents to enter the U.S., according to federal auditors.
Called the “diversity visa,” the program is designed to bring variety to the stream of immigrants legally entering the country. The deadline to apply for this year’s lottery is 11 a.m. Sunday, and it is open to citizens of 170 countries that sent fewer than 50,000 immigrants during the past five years, according to the U.S. State Department.
But at six of 11 consular posts reviewed by Government Accountability Office investigators, officers found ”widespread” use of fake documents, including counterfeit birth and marriage certificates and passports, according to the agency’s report in September.
A 2002 cable from the U.S. Embassy in Bangladesh noted that ”the ease with which individuals can obtain genuine identity documents in any assumed identity, including passports, creates an ‘open door’ for terrorists wishing to enter the Unites States with legal status,” the report said.
The auditors also noted that nearly 9,800 immigrants from countries designated as state sponsors of terror, including Iran and Syria, have earned permanent residency since 2000.
I am sick and tired of having to post items like this. How many self-defeating actions can we take before we destroy ourselves.
Don’t you realize that we are not winning the War on Terror! We will never win it if we continue to engage in self-deating activities.
Just look at what the multiculturalists and diversity-seekers have done to this country!
This really makes one wonder what other self-defeating activities we are engaged in.
