Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) reported tonight on shocking visa news.
DHS just released a report detailing a finding that boggles the mind. In just one category of temporary visa – the B visa (for business workers and tourists) – 527,127 aliens overstayed their visas in 2015 alone; of those illegal overstays, 482,781 were still believed to be illegally present in the United States at the end of FY 2015. Again: this is just from the B-visa, and does not include the F-1 student visa or the multiple H and L foreign worker visas, or the J-1 exchange visa, or the millions of visa waiver recipients, etc.
Thousands of foreigners have overstayed their visas in the United States in 2015.
— 219 from Afghanistan
