The United States government erroneously granted citizenship to 858 immigrants from countries that are currently being monitored amid concerns that they may pose a threat to national security. Some of the immigrants are from countries that have high incidences of immigration fraud, an internal Department of Homeland Security audit released last Monday, September 19, showed.
Inspector General John Roth’s auditors said the individuals came from “special interest countries,” but he did not release the immigrants’ individual names. The report also did not mention which countries were involved.
Fingerprint scans for as many as 315,000 immigrants, who either have final deportation orders or are criminal fugitives, are missing from federal databases. Apparently, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement has yet to review around 148,000 of said immigrants’ files to add their fingerprints to the digital record.
