Clueless DHS official has no answers on immigration; so flustered calls K1 visa program ‘KY’

It is becoming frighteningly apparent how clueless the Obama administration is when it comes to who is entering this country.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Screening Coordination, Office of Policy of the United States Department of Homeland Security, Kelli Burriesci appeared before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Thursday and had no answers to some extremely simple questions.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH summed it up thusly:

Ms. Burriesci, I’ve asked you the number of American’s who’ve traveled to Syria, you don’t know. The number of Americans who may have traveled and returned, you don’t know. The number of Syrian refugees who’ve entered the country in the last year, you don’t know. The number of visa waiver program overstays, you don’t know. The number of visa waiver overstays who may have been to Syria before they came here, you don’t know. And the number of American citizens on the no-fly list and you don’t know. And yet you are the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Screening Coordination, Office of Policy, Department of Homeland Security in front of the oversight committee and you can’t give us one single number to some, I think, pretty basic questions?

She also couldn’t answer questions from Rep. Mark Meadows and Rep. Steve Russell. But it was her answer to a question from Rep. Trey Gowdy that really was an attention grabber.

Seemingly flustered by the barrage of questions she was unprepared for, she referred to the K1 visa program as the KY visa program.
