Just a bureaucratic snafu, huh? I wonder. Either way it illustrates the incompetence of those charged with protecting us.

A new Homeland Security internal audit revealing potentially lethal incompetence could not have come at a worse time for the Obama administration.

According to the DHS report released Monday, the U.S. government mistakenly granted citizenship to "at least 858 immigrants who had pending deportation orders from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud." As a result some of those individuals have been able to obtain security-sensitive jobs. This alarming report comes after a wave of terrorist attacks injured 38 people in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota over the weekend.



How could this happen, you ask?:

The Homeland Security Department's inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren't caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

In an emailed statement, the Department of Homeland Security said the findings reflect what has long been a problem for immigration officials — old paper-based records containing fingerprint information that can't be searched electronically. DHS says immigration officials are in the process of uploading these files and that officials will review "every file" identified as a case of possible fraud.

Roth's report said fingerprints are missing from federal databases for as many as 315,000 immigrants with final deportation orders or who are fugitive criminals. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has not reviewed about 148,000 of those immigrants' files to add fingerprints to the digital record.



Oh, ok. Could happen to anybody. Nothing to worry about. Obama is in charge and all is well.

Oh, darn, there is a second minor, insignificant, hardly worth mentioning error in this story.

But the truth is the report is even worse than reported, with more than 1,800 individuals naturalized who should have been deported from the country.

[…]

That amounts to a total of 1,811 individuals granted citizenship who should not have been.

The new number is an increase of 953 people from the original number reported



Not to worry, though:

Zitat
The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement saying it will look into the 1,811 individuals wrongly granted citizenship.
