Iran links in Homeland Security’s troubled immigration program

A program that gives coveted immigrant green cards to wealthy foreign  investors was so susceptible to fraud and abuse that it was used by an Iranian  network that sought to send banned high technology home and spread terrorism  abroad, federal investigators said.

The memo called the EB-5 program a weak point in the nation’s immigration  security because visa holders can become green card holders and eventually  citizens — without going through the background checks that most prospective  immigrants face. The program is designed to attract foreigners who pledge to  invest in the U.S. economy.

If this is not enough to question the subversives that are running our government, recall an earlier post this week: Thousands of Iranian students here will benefit from “agreement” – thousands of Iranian students are here on much of our dime studying Science and Math, of course, under the auspices of the Iranian government to come to the so-called “Great Satan.” But I digressed.

The EB-5 program was used by “a network involved in a series of international  assassinations and terrorism operations” that also was “procuring a variety of  goods for Iranian entities,” states an unsigned memo from U.S. Immigration and  Customs Enforcement made public Thursday. The memo was written in response to  questions asked by Janet A. Napolitano as homeland security secretary.

CIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas has  touted his reforms to the program, centralizing its administration at  headquarters in Washington, instituting anti-fraud measures and hiring as many  as 100 economic and business analysts.

The memo was made public by Sen. Chuck  Grassley, Iowa Republican, in a letter to ICE acting Director John  Sandweg asking a series of questions about the case.

    Security seems to be a minor concern in the Obama administration. Party crashers at the White House, a dangerous psychotic standing just feet behind the President, gun walking, and the lack of any interest in securing our national borders all point to a Laissez-faire attitude toward preserving the safety of the President of the United States and the American people. Why should the DHS be any different?

      Can they really be this naive? I don’t get it. I really don’t. Yet he doesn’t mind droning away. Thanks for stopping by.
