Exposing government incompetence
& lax homeland security
Although two-thirds of legal immigration is “chain migration,” most of that stems from short-term marriages to U.S. citizens.
Many “family reunification” connections are tenuous, at best.
Politicians debate illegal immigration yet ignore rampant fraud within the LEGAL immigration system.
Fake Marriages Used to Bypass Background Checks, Hide Criminal Activities
As congress and the president push to close dangerous immigration loopholes and target “chain migration,” the single-largest way into the United States remains untouched under current legislative proposals: Short-terms marriages – even fraudulent ones -- provide quick green cards and U.S. citizenship.
From the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to the 2015 San Bernardino terror attack, marriage remains a key way that foreign criminals and terrorists gain permanent access to the country.
Nothing has changed in current law to close or tighten these loopholes, and immigration fraud is not a victimless crime.
Such fraud rarely targets just Democrats, Republicans or U.S.-born American citizens. Americans of every race, ethnicity, political affiliation, gender and sexual orientation have been scammed for a quick green card while our laws, politicians and bureaucracy did little to protect them or their interests.
