sometimes the testimony of the applicant alone is enough to get them vetted in,
If true, that would not be a good policy.

[Breaking news alert, 3:54 a.m.]
The Ninth Circuit Court has denied an immediate emergency motion request for an administrative stay of an injunction to stop the enforcement of President Donald Trump's nationwide travel ban. The court has asked for both sides to file legal briefs before the court makes a decision.
In order to fully explore refugee claims and to identify any possible grounds of ineligibility, specially-trained USCIS officers conduct an in-person, in-depth interview of every principal refugee applicant. The officer assesses the credibility of the applicant and evaluates whether the applicant’s testimony is consistent with known country conditions.

Here's the Law that enables a President to actually ban any class of people from the country for as long as a President feels is needed if he deems these people to be a threat to the safety and security of the American People. This law has been used before by past presidents, and is completely constitutional. I for one am glad to see this Law being used once again. We are living in dangerous times with an enemy that is remorseless, brutal, and determined. This law covers any groups of people, any nationality, and any religion deemed dangerous by the President.
Judge James Robart, a Federal Judge out of Seattle, just BLOCKED Trump’s immigration ban nation wide. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed the lawsuit claiming that the travel ban targets Muslims and violates constitutional rights of immigrants and their families. Never mind the fact that Trump’s executive order has NOTHING to do with religion.
But Donald Trump is not going to roll over and allow this. The White House is fighting back and will be filing a halt on the Judge’s ruling.

So are checks and balances. It's how our government works.
Trump got checked.

8 U.S. Code § 1182 - Inadmissible aliens
(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.
Yup, there it is in all of it's legal glory.
Trump wins again.
