As 2014 gave way to a new year, a watchdog legal group reported how President Obama Barack Obama's arguably out-of-control administration is intentionally weakening U.S. national security by expanding an already fraud-infested program that allows the rich to buy U.S. visas for themselves and fellow countrymen. The Judicial Watch report also revealed that this same administration cannot locate a shocking 96% of the illegal aliens who were ordered deported after reviewing their cases in absentia.
According to the government watchdog's report, a relatively unknown federal program known as the Immigrant Investor, or EB-5, that helps wealthy foreign investors purchase legal entry into the United States, has skyrocketed under Obama's appointees. The nation's top conservative newspaper published a distressing story just before the New Year's holiday that asserts this money-making program has dramatically increased with the blessings current occupants of White House. And despite its record of abuse, fraud and suspected bribery, in addition to the concerns of lawmakers about the program's risks to U.S. national security risks, immigrants are buying their way into the United States and getting help to take jobs away from Americans at all social levels.
"At the low-end of the job market, they are displacing blacks, Latinos and other minorities. At the top-level, they are taking jobs away from U.S. college graduates seeking work in engineering, the sciences, and other high-paying jobs," said Carl Stevenson, a computer security expert. "And why aren't Americans learning about this and other immigration scams? Because the allegations made against President Obama or his illegal alien obsession are too distasteful for the sycophants in today's news business." Stevenson added.
Since Barack Obama took office in 2009, Judicial Watch's report claims, "the number of immigrants who have entered the U.S. legally via EB-5 has risen an astounding 700%." The group examined the government figures cited in by the Washington Times. In fact, an informant -- a former federal immigration official --who is quoted in the report revealed that the Obama administration has been actively promoting its visa program, which has resulted in the majority of immigrants coming to the United States from communist China, despite overwhelming evidence of rampant industrial espionage and cybercrime perpetrated by Chinese agents.
Meanwhile, in Houston, Texas, the news media are investigating the recent illegal alien surge. The reporters are claiming the information obtained is "downright scary" after they had to fight with Obama's government officials for six months. The report claims that Central American families caught crossing the border between July 18 and October 28 had to be released on their own recognizance because there wasn’t enough detention space, according to officials with Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) who report to the Attorney General Eric Holder. The illegal aliens were told their release would be permitted provided they agreed to appear, at a later date, before an immigration administrative judge.
A shocking 96 percent of the deportation rulings were made by judges with illegal aliens classified “in absentia,” because they never showed up for their scheduled deportation hearings. "So, essentially, the U.S. government deported a ghost—or the courtroom wall—in nearly all of these cases. That means the violators are still somewhere in the country and nobody really knows where.
Here is one figure reluctantly provided by the EOIR: of the 15,614 families caught crossing the border, but not detained, 4,197 were ordered removed from the country in absentia. No wonder the government fought hard to keep the information from going public," said the report from Judicial Watch, a non-profit, public-interest group that investigates and exposes government corruption.
"Our government trusts foreign nationals who have violated our laws by entering the country illegally, then releases them into our communities and trusts them to show up in court at a later day! This happens all the time, the EOIR admits in the news segment, but not in such large numbers. Typically the agency reports an annual 11 to 15% 'in absentia' rate," noted the report. "Many Americans might agree that, after the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, no foreign national in the country illegally should be released into the community and trusted to show up in court for a court hearing."
