DHS Watchdog Says Stalled Immigration System May Be Security Risk

The Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general says a failure to sufficiently modernize the nation’s system for processing immigration applications may be a security risk and may have resulted in Green Cards and other documents being sent to the wrong people. In a report being released today, Inspector General John Roth says one of the goals of moving the application process online to the Electronic Immigration System — or ELIS — was to ensure potential terrorists or others seeking to do the U.S. harm couldn’t receive immigration or citizenship benefits. In all, potentially hundreds of Green Cards have been sent to incorrect addresses, and “unauthorized individuals … might sell or use them fraudulently for profit,” Roth warns.
