DHS failures allow 800K deportable illegals to remain

DHS logoThe Department of Homeland Security’s tracking procedures are in need of serious repair according to an audit by its inspector general.

One in 8 illegal immigrants — approximately 800,000 — scheduled for deportation, some with serious criminal records, slip through the cracks and are allowed to remain in the United States. In addition, due to DHS’s faulty system of tracking illegals, many are allowed to work in sensitive areas such as airports and are granted benefits such as food stamps and medical benefits.

According to Stephen Dinan of The Washington Times

told, some 800,000 immigrants are living in the U.S. who already have been ordered deported but have not yet left — or been removed by the government — from the country.

The Homeland Security Department is supposed to maintain an up-to-date list of those deportable aliens so that other government agencies are aware of their status and know they should be denied benefits. The system is known as the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program, or SAVE.

But a random sample of queries to the system found that 12 percent of the time, the system OKs an immigrant who should have been deported.

“The failures in our sample include individuals who applied for unemployment and disability insurance, food stamps, driver’s licenses and other benefits,” the audit indicated. “Several individuals had criminal records, including assault with a deadly weapon, extortion, drug convictions and other convictions such as burglary, stalking and child abuse.”
