It seems the President of the United States is not the only one that has “no strategy” for dealing with the current terror threats.
Despite the growing worldwide terrorist threats, new reports indicate that the U.S. still has not tightened one key area of homeland security — student visas.
The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of more than 6,000 foreigners who entered the United States on student visas that have now expired, ABC News reports. This was a major security gap that was supposed to be fixed after the 9/11 terror attacks.
More than one million foreign students come into the U.S. each year on student visas. Over the past year, DHS found that 58,000 students overstayed their visas and 6,000 were found to need follow-up because they were considered a “heightened concern.”
“My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” Peter Edge, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official who oversees investigations into visa violators, told ABC. “Some of them could be here to do us harm.”
