    Feds halt new citizenship approvals after Obama adminís gaffe on background checks

    The government suspended naturalization ceremonies and banned officers from approving any new applications for citizenship earlier this week after realizing its background check system was broken and ineligible people may have been slipping through, a key congressman revealed Friday.


    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, whose office was tipped off to the monumental error, said he was stunned by the problem ó and also by the fact that the administration never bothered to inform him of it.


    In the internal email Mr. Goodlatte obtained, the associate director at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ordered all officers ďnot to approve or oath any naturalization cases in ELIS,Ē referring to the Electronic Immigration System thatís the case management system for processing applications.


    ďAt this point we are not confident that proper FBI Name Checks have been run on certain ELIS cases. At this point we are uncertain of the scope of the problem,Ē Daniel M. Renaud, the associate director, said in the email.

    FBI name checks are a critical part of the application process, giving immigration officers a look at potential criminal histories or other national security red flags that would make someone ineligible for citizenship.


    Mr. Goodlatte demanded USCIS detail when it discovered the problem and how many cases were affected, and said the agency should take steps to strip citizenship from anyone who shouldnít have been approved.

    In his email to employees, Mr. Renaud said officers were allowed to continue conducting citizenship interviews but could not issue a final approval. In emergency cases where the case must be decided or an oath administered, he said, officers needed to get written confirmation from a regional office that the FBI information in the system was correct.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    This vetting system has been broken for a long time that is why we have the crime wave of today. We have absolutely no idea who is in this country. We need to stop letting anyone in until this is fixed. We also need to stop all the elderly, disabled and children coming here on flights and just not going back. You know they did not cross the Rio Grande. These people are never checked and are all getting benefits that we are paying for. Their own countries should be taking care of them. I am not mean spirited but we must and will take care of our own citizens first and foremost.
    Freedom isn't free... Don't forget the men who died and gave that right to all of us....
