If you didn’t think things could get worse with the problem of immigration, think again. A new Department of Homeland Security inspector general’s report revealed that thousands of green cards have been misplaced or simply lost over the past three years.
An internal audit of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services revealed alarming statistics that prompted DHS Inspector General John Roth to urge better safeguards to avoid any potentially dangerous situations.
The report indicated that electronic system errors had been blamed for some 19,000 cards being issued as duplicates or with incorrect information. This incorrect information could include wrong names, dates of birth, photos and gender, the report said.
“It appears that thousands of green cards have simply gone missing,” Roth said in a news release, according to ABC News.
“In the wrong hands, green cards may enable terrorists, criminals and undocumented aliens to remain in the United States. It is vital that USCIS ensure better tools and procedures are in place to mitigate such risks,” the report said.
The number of missing cards has increased significantly over the past two years. In fiscal year 2013, the number reported was 44,519. In fiscal year 2014, it jumped to 67,247. In fiscal year 2015, that number increased to a whopping 92,645.
The agency blamed technical problems with their immigration database as well as issues with the U.S. Postal Service.
The audit also revealed that the USCIS produced at least 19,000 cards that were either duplicates or contained incorrect information. USCIS also issued cards with 10-year expiration dates to 2,400 immigrants who were only approved only to stay in the country for two years. The majority of those cards have not been recovered.
In the last three years, more than 200,000 applicants reported their cards were never delivered, the report said.
It should be noted that the actual number of missing cards was not immediately known.
Once again, we have an example of how the incompetency of Obama’s government has put Americans in danger.
