Obama administration fails to check immigrants against FBI databases, approves citizenship

Some 175 immigrants were approved for citizenship even though their names weren’t properly run through the FBI’s name-check databases, potentially missing red flags that may have disqualified them from naturalization, the Obama administration admitted this weekend.

Homeland Security officials blamed computer code for the problem, which affected about 15,000 applications in total.

The problem was significant enough that the government halted all naturalization ceremonies already in the pipeline and banned U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers from approving new citizenship applications beginning on Nov. 29, when officials acknowledged the problem in an internal email that was later obtained by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

In the internal email, Daniel M. Renaud, associate director at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, ordered all officers “not to approve or oath any naturalization cases in ELIS,” referring to the Electronic Immigration System that serves as the case management system for processing applications.

“At this point we are not confident that proper FBI Name Checks have been run on certain ELIS cases. At this point we are uncertain of the scope of the problem,” he wrote.

    We The People have no say in any government doings anymore…
    I pray Trump with give us back some of our rights.. Obama did all he could think of during the election period to get Hillary in there and is still trying. Thank God He had a say in this election and if Hillary tries to overthrow Trump this country is going to have a Civil War on it’s hands and Obama will stay in office if this should happen.. So pray people, pray these recounts are done fairly and Trump comes out with even more votes……………
