With the crackdowns on immigration discrepancies on foreign illegals, cases have been coming out more and more. The Miami federal immigration court has been flooded with massive amounts of cases dealing with false statements made on foreigner visa application. All done in an effort to hide former visits to the United States.
Just last week five new cases of overstays appeared in the court. It came at the same time as a report that foreign nationals who remain past their stay deadline outnumber illegal immigrants who attempt to cross the border without documentation.
The Center for Migration Studies in New York published a report in 2007 and said the following about the growing issue,
“The paper finds that two-thirds of those who arrived in 2014 were admitted (after screening) to the United States on non-immigrant (temporary) visas, and then overstayed their period of admission or otherwise violated the terms of their visas — a trend likely to continue.”
In one specific case, a Uruguayan immigrant named María de los Ángeles Moreira García came to the Miami airport from Montevideo on American Airlines. Her criminal complaint reads the following,
“The defendant presented a Uruguayan passport and a U.S. visa to Customs and Border Protection for an examination and entry into the United States. The defendant was referred to secondary inspection for admissibility verification. The application for a non-immigrant visa asks: ‘Have you ever been in the United States?’ and ‘Have you ever been issued a U.S. visa? The defendant answered ‘no’ to both questions on her visa application.”
CBP officials found that the visa was genuine but obtained fraudulently. She had also come to the United States several years prior. She was thusly sentenced to jail and eventually released. She will be sent back home upon the completion.
This speaks to a much larger issue. It is for this reason the President has been encouraging these ICE crackdowns and raids in an attempt to purge the country of illegal immigrants. Corruption in immigration reform has been running rampant. The Obama administration certainly didn’t do anything about it. So the Trump administration will.
