New USCIS Office Investigating Thousands Who Got US Citizenship Through Identity Fraud

DC: A new government office created to investigate bogus naturalization applications estimates there are at least 3,000 cases of aliens who used false identities to obtain U.S. citizenship, federal officials told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The office, housed inside U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), has identified the potential fraud cases as a part of its ongoing review of more than 300,000 fingerprint records uploaded to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) database beginning in 2014.

Based on the review to date, officials could uncover more than 3,000 instances where an ineligible alien assumed another identity and used it to become a U.S. citizen, USCIS associate director for field operations Daniel Renaud told TheDCNF Tuesday in an interview.

The targeted review stems from a 2016 DHS inspector general report that found roughly 315,000 old fingerprint records for people who had been deported or had criminal convictions had not been uploaded to a DHS database of immigrants’ identities. As immigration authorities enrolled the paper records into the DHS system, they discovered hundreds of cases where an alien with an order of removal under one name had been naturalized under another identity.  more here

  1. Automatic deportation. Then they can dig into the bogus reasons “refugees” have given for entry and deport them too.

  2. I wish they would stop linking to websites that FORCE you to pay money to read the entire article.

    It kind of defeats the purpose of the link…. unless your rich and don’t mind doling out the CC# to every half-bit website out there that just happens to print a few paragraphs of someone else’s work and wants to pay them for doing so.

  3. Head ’em up, move ’em out, all the way out.
    No due process, no court room. They have no rights.

  4. I’m betting they won’t be looking into the ID fraud of the guy who achieved more than citizenship. He lived in the White House for eight years, via support of millions of fools and thousands of dead people or people who don’t really exist.

  5. Nah, deportation is too easy. sentence them to about 10 years hard labor then deport them in perpetuity. Make it a death sentence if they are caught back in the USA.

  6. I don’t know about this claim about 3,000 Illegal aliens claiming false identities to get American citizenship. Since there are only 11,000,000 illegal aliens in the country, this seems like a high percentage that are taking advantage of the legal aliens and American citizens. On the other hand, what if there are actually 30 or 40,000,000 Illegal aliens roosting in our country? It’s more likely that there are 30,000 or 40,000 Illegal aliens living here under false citizenship. Of course, most of them can’t be deported, because they will be separated from their anchor babies. Get ready for another human rights struggle paid for by the ACLU.
