Exposing government incompetence

&   lax homeland security


Politicians debate illegal  immigration yet ignore rampant fraud within the LEGAL immigration system. 

People claiming to be crime victims can get fast-tracked green cards: NO evidence, interviews, investigations required.

The FBI reached out to whistleblower Elena Maria Lopez about a cluster of national security cases all tied  to VAWA green cards & U visas.

Pending legislation in both the House and Senate Judiciary committees leaves these dangerous loopholes untouched!

Call Rep. Goodlatte &

Sen. Grassley today!


"A few minutes later, I was looking down the barrel of a rifle ... I discovered the loan on my car changed, he applied for credit in my name, and he lied on his immigration forms ... Erik was still threatening me so I hired a retired FBI special agent as a private investigator. ...I figured if we clearly documented that Erik was inadmissible to get a green card in the first place, involved in criminal activities, lied on immigration forms, tried to kill me, repeatedly threatened me, and committed marriage fraud, the feds would have to do something.  I was wrong."

-Elena Maria Lopez; Defrauded & almost killed by Dutch husband (U.S. Senate hearing, 2017)

  • false identities
  • forged documents
  • hiding criminal activities
  • fraudulent work visas
  • false statements & lying on immigration forms
  • sham marriages & bigamy
  • falsely claiming crime-victim status
  • falsely claiming American spouse  abused you


  • COMBAT FRAUD - Require convictions for alleged victims filing for VAWA green cards & U visas.
  • DUE PROCESS - Require immigration investigators to interview Americans accused of abuse; Require Americans' evidence to be included in VAWA & U visa processes.
  • NOT AN AMNESTY - Don't let VAWA or U visas waive fraud, criminal activities or  inadmissibility.
  • INVESTIGATE - Require local immigration offices to investigate VAWA and U visa applications -- not social work units without investigative training.

  • NOT  illegal immigration
  • Considered more dangerous than illegal immigration: It allows dubious individuals to gain legitimate documents, U.S. passports, and legal access to the country
  • When a foreigner acquires a LEGAL  immigration status (known as a “green card”) through dubious or fraudulent means
  • ​A perfect way to legalize a temporary visa or illegal status
  • Rarely investigated: Overwhelmed with rampant fraud, government employees ignore the majority of cases reported
  • ​​Fraudsters rarely engage in just ONE type of fraud: Marriage cases may also involve financial fraud, false statements, false identities, false documents & hiding criminal activities
  • NOT a victimless crime: It puts Americans and the nation's security at risk
  • People of every race, ethnicity, political affiliation and sexual orientation are targeted through immigration fraud scams
  • Naturalized U.S. citizens and first-generation Americans are just as likely to be victimized

"... my fiancée indicated that she did not need me any more to get her green card
and boasted that she can get it quicker in other ways. I thought she was joking ...
During this time, my family in Pakistan has been harassed and threatened by her father and brothers. One of her brothers threatened to kidnap my niece.."

No Amnesties? Wrong

These are just some of the ways to "amnesty" an illegal or fraudulent status:

  • Claim to be a crime victim for fast-tracked green card (U Visa)
  • Claim American spouse emotionally or physically abused you (VAWA -- or the Violence Against Women Act)
  • Get immigration officials to bar criminal activities, evidence or records from immigration proceedings (VAWA, U Visa or T Visa)
  • "Get Out of Jail Free" Card: Marry an American (The Fraud Waiver)

U.S. Senate visa fraud hearing (March 15, 2017)

"Within days of receiving notice of our impending interview with INS, my husband reached around me for the coffee pot one morning and announced that we would be getting a divorce now. He instructed me to file for the divorce and continue to sponsor him for his green card. After filing for the divorce, my husband became abusive toward our children and threatened to take them back to the Czech Republic if I did not sponsor him for his green card ... Facing deportation for marriage fraud, a charge leveled by the federal government, my husband, a former professional hockey player, at 6’2” tall and over 200 lbs., self petitioned as a battered and abused spouse."

Congress Warned of Widespread Fraud: Americans Legally, Financially, Physically Victimized

Foreign criminals successfully bypassed background checks, investigations and interviews to gain U.S. citizenship and  green cards, warned immigration fraud whistleblowers at a White House meeting.

After fraudulently gaining green cards through such loopholes, these foreign nationals immediately married military personnel with high-level security clearances.

The FBI was so concerned with such cases that it reached out to an American whistle blower last year about the cases.
