Another report from the U.S. Government proves again that they just have no control over the entire immigration system.

Now we learn that a half a million people are here with expired visas.

Some of the countries are war torn and ripe with festering terrorism.

All the safety nets in place costing billions and they still don't know where anybody is.


DHS: 500,000 people overstayed their U.S. visas in 2015


A new government report released Tuesday night found more than half a million foreign nationals who received temporary visas to enter the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program or B Visa in 2015 overstayed their permits.

A total of 527,127 people visiting the U.S. through both programs failed to leave and have remained in the country without legal status or lawful presence. According to the report, more than 90 percent of those who remained in the country illegally, a total of 482,781, were believed to still be present through the end of last year, according to Department of Homeland Security data.


They're HERE !!

I'm going to safely assume most of them are Asian and Indian.

I'm basing this on observations in the changes of demographics in SoCal in the last two years and the fact that more and more natives of Cali are struggling to survive everyday.

what a joke

kind of like when I was hearing about Border Patrol Agents telling their superiors they saw people climbing over the fence and their superiors told them to ignore it.. not to mention the "advertisements" in Central/South American countries, telling them to come to America (who made these ads anyway), SOMEONE purposely created a mass exodus, first here on our Southern Border and then on a much more massive scale in EU. The same players involved.. God damned frightening

Those in control don't actually care anyway, because if bad **** happens (and it ISN'T a false flag that was orchestrated from within), they will use it as a reason to strip us of more rights and continue to militarize our streets with weaponry and goons-for-hire



it's a lose-lose situation at this point honestly

This happens all the time and has forever and not just in the US. It very common among students in particular ones who go school in another county and meet somebody. Americans do it a great deal in Mexico with tourist visas, They go and just stay. Here is an article from 2006 same thing LINK. Of course the reason this is so common everywhere is that it nearly impossible to enforce. You would need to need massive amounts of agents to try and find and track down these people and considering most of the are harmless no country is willing spend that kind of money.

Unfortunately this is the hardest form of illegal immigration to stop

I'm so back and forth on the immigration issue.

It's a two sided coin.

So, of course, instead of tracking them down, the government will be wasting resources auditing people that don't need one, pushing paper around to delay paying veterans what they should, and basically anything and everything except getting these criminals out of the country.

A cashless society would stop illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants use money orders and cash. Not debit and credit. Abolish analog cash and switch to digital money and this stops overnight. It would also stop most drug dealing (and even if a drug dealer convinced them the money was for legal services it would be taxed, making it prohibitively expensive) same for prostitution, human trafficking, the mafia, etcetera.

Well, aren't we trying to spread fear and propaganda this morning?

Illegal immigration needs to be stopped as much as economically possible.

Problem is small numbers will still get through mixed with legal immigrants and travellers.

You cant bar international travel because that would ruin the US tourist industry and put millions out of work.

Only thing I can think of is immediate deportation of any one picked up by a cop with a expired visa even if not charged with a crime.

The sanctuary cities are the problem.

Around each member of Congress. But it would be to keep them in.

No. The problem is that you do not check your sources.


Report shows DHS was able to confirm departures of over 99 percent of nonimmigrant visitors scheduled to depart in Fiscal Year 2015, and that number continues to grow; DHS continues to improve the entry/exit system to better identify and track overstays



Due to further continuing departures by individuals in this population, by January 4, 2016, the number of Suspected In-Country overstays for FY 2015 had dropped to 416,500, rendering the Suspected In-Country Overstay rate as 0.9 percent.

Yeah. Kind of like when it's safe for the immigrants in Western Europe to go home.

Better to highlight the reality with statistics than to try to appeals to people's ignorance.

"They're here!"

Terrorists are overstaying their visas, xuenchen! Better crap yourself before they blow you up!

The answer is to stop handing out visas like candy. But of course the agenda is to make it as easy as possible for foreigners to come here. Living near the southern border, I know the current policy is to 'catch and release' any non-Mexican border jumpers. So now a lot of Chinese and eastern Europeans are using that route.
