VISA overstays are an even bigger problem than porous borders!

Did you know the U.S. doesn’t have an adequate system to assure the foreigners leave when they’re supposed to? Trey Sanchez reports at Truth Revolt that Judicial Watch reports, “This has been a serious problem for years and in fact some of the 9/11 hijackers overstayed their visa to plan the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. More than a decade and a half later little has changed. Securing the famously porous southern border is essential to national security but so is a reliable system that cracks down on visa overstays."

...The bottom line is that Islamic terrorists are using both avenues to enter the U.S. As part of an ongoing investigation on the Mexican border, Judicial Watch has published a series of articles documenting how Middle Eastern terrorists have joined forces with Mexican drug cartels to infiltrate the U.S. and train in southern border towns near American cities. Sources include local, state and federal law enforcement officials as well as military figures on both sides of the border.

Figures obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security showed that over 500,000 foreigners overstayed their visas last year, including thousands from at least five terrorist nations. That same year, over 45,000 Mexicans overstayed their visas and thousands more came from South American countries. (China is on the list, too.)

“The visas are granted for ‘business or pleasure’ and the foreigners come via sea or air port of entry,” JW reports. “For nearly a decade, a number of federal audits have offered the alarming figures associated with visa overstays, including one released back in 2011 that estimates half of the nation’s illegal immigrants entered legally with visas.”

It’s estimated that the border wall will cost over $21 billion over three and a half years. After 9/11, the federal government spent $1 billion on an electronic fingerprint and photo scanning system meant to keep track of foreigner visas but have failed miserably by allowing millions, including those who wish to do us harm, to remain in the country undetected.
