    Thousands Receive Immigration Benefits While Ineligible

    Thousands Receive Immigration Benefits While Ineligible

    WESLACO – A report by the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General revealed nearly 10,000 people received immigration benefits while ineligible.

    A report by DHS points to fingerprint data not catching people who had been removed from the country or had deportation orders when applying for immigration benefits.


    Those benefits range from U.S. citizenship to work permits.


    Immigration procedures typically take months, some longer than others. The procedure is meant to ensure applicants complied with the law.


    The nearly 10,000 people identified in the report, didn’t comply and instead presented themselves under a different name when encountering law enforcement while in the country illegally.


    “So they have as of now found out that many of them are not eligible, some of them are eligible still for the benefits, but they're going to review these on a case by case basis," said immigration attorney Alex Martinez.


    The error in the system lead thousands of applicants, from countries including India, Bangladesh, and Mexico – to obtain immigration benefits, such as U.S. citizenship status or a work permit.


    Martinez points out the problem could impact more than the nearly 10,000 people.


    If an ineligible person received immigration benefits, then passed benefits to a family member, that family member's status becomes null.


    Martinez went on to say the situation is unfortunate but said,
    "There is no justification for anyone to misrepresent the facts to the government. That is not allowed and that is not acceptable."


    According to USCIS, receiving a deportation order or having used another identity doesn't necessarily mean someone is ineligible for immigration benefits.


    The nearly 10,000 cases will be reviewed on an individual basis.

    We need to shut this down for 10 - 20 years and get the people out of here that do NOT belong here!

    This is out of control and the costs are a burden to US taxpayers.

    Go fix your own damn country.

    This news alone warrants an immediate 10 to 20 year moratorium on all immigration. We don't want to have to pay the thousands of federal workers to pour through all these eligible while ineligible cases!! Costs taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for the supervision and enforcement of this crap that shouldn't even be taking place in our country because all these immigrants and illegal aliens shouldn't even be here to start with. GRRRR!!!!!

    MORATORIUM NOW!! MORATORIUM NOW!! MORATORIUM NOW!!

    Huh?!? If you're using someone else's identity, you're obviously not who you are representing yourself to be.
