RELIGIOUS WORKER VISA FRAUD
FINALLY SOMEONE IN AMERICA WOKE UP! BUT TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE. HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS - IF NOT THOUSANDS - OF "RELIGIOUS" INFILTRATORS ARE ALREADY HERE AND IN PLACE - WAITING FOR THE SIGNAL TO "GO!" - DISRUPTIVELY, DESTRUCTIVELY AND DESPICABLY. Homeland Security Department officials have discovered widespread fraud in a religious worker visa program that allows thousands of foreigners a year to enter the U.S. and remain here. Last year, the officials found that 33 percent of the visas that investigators examined were granted based on fraudulent information, USA Today reports. “We found that the program had been compromised and the fraud rate was excessively high,” Emilio Gonzalez, head of Citizen and Immigration Services at Homeland Security, told USA Today. The visa program was established in 1990 to allow churches, synagogues and mosques to hire qualified foreigners to fill open jobs. Applicants for a religious visa must have a sponsor in the U.S. Now Homeland Security plans to implement new regulations in an effort to prevent radical groups from using the visa program to get terrorists into the U.S. The regulations will allow inspectors and Customs officials to investigate religious organizations sponsoring applicants to assure that they are legitimate. They will also demand more proof from applicants that they are qualified for the job they’re seeking, and require proof of employment after one year on the job before extending a visa.
