“We really don’t have the processes of completely vetting those individuals…”
House Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va told the Washington Free Beacon in an exclusive interview that the Obama administration is not able to properly vet the 10 million individuals that enter the country legally through the visa program, nor are they able to track them once they are here.
“What most Americans don’t realize is that just last year alone we issued about 10 million visas for people to come into the United States,” Forbes said told the Free Beacon. “That’s a pretty large number and we really don’t have the processes of completely vetting those individuals, nor do we have processes often times of keeping up with them once they get here.”
“So in addition to just driving or walking across the border, or sneaking across the border, on the Southern border, we have 10 million that just come in because we stamped a visa and allowed them to come in,” Forbes continued.
Forbes said that lawmakers and investigators have repeatedly mentioned to the Obama administration that foreign terrorists are in fact exploiting the country’s lax and widespread immigration system, but millions of immigrants into the country continue to be admitted every year.
“I don’t think they’re [the administration] being held accountable and I think part of the reason they’re not held accountable is because this is one of those issues that they love to blend apples and oranges and confuse the public with it,” Forbes said.
“What we do know is that there sometimes can be tremendous pressure to stamp these visas and get them moving,” Forbes continued. “This is an administration that has taken the motto of finding yes instead of being correct.”
