According to a DHS memo, Homeland Security isn’t able to do accurate background checks that will keep terrorists out.
The content of the DHS memo shouldn’t surprise anyone, given what our government has already admitted.
According to the Washington Times,
Refugee fraud is “easy to commit” and much tougher to detect, Homeland Security officials acknowledged in an internal memo made public by members of Congress Thursday [Sept 22nd] that challenges the department’s own assurances as it seeks to increase the number of refugees from dangerous countries.
The U.S. has relaxed requirements for refugees to prove they are who they say they are, and at times may rely solely on testimony. That makes it easier for bogus applicants to conspire to get approved, according to the department memo, which was obtained by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees.
“Refugee fraud is easy to commit, yet not easy to investigate,” the undated memo says.
The memo said there are clear instances where “bad actors … have exploited this program,” gaining a foothold in the U.S. through bogus refugee claims.
As the article notes, this DHS memo came to light as President Obama seeks to increase the number of refugees.
Remember the claim by the State Department official who admitted that ISIS terrorists are trying to pass themselves off as refugees.
The vetting process, while not perfect, is a very, very stringent, and it can take almost up to two years for a single refugee to make it into the country.
What difference does it make how long the “vetting” takes if it is so easily fooled?
I doubt it makes any difference to George Soros who recently pledged to “invest” 500 million dollars to “help” refugees and migrants.
“Help,” in this context obviously means encourage more of them. Soros doesn’t have to worry about security concerns.
