Report: Federal workers 'pressured' to approve citizenship papers

Some U.S. immigration officers charged with reviewing citizenship applications believe federal policy favors promoting immigration over protecting national security, according to a draft report by an agency watchdog.
When asked whether they had ever been asked by a supervisor to approve applications that should have been denied, 63 of the 254 immigration officers, or nearly 25%, answered "Yes."
Asked if they had enough time to interview applicants, 109, or 43.4%, said they had "serious concerns" that interview times were too short to make a good determination.

    Why don't we just open our borders and let the whole world in? We are doing that already and when we have another terrorist strike we only have ourselves to blame. Remember 9/11. Those pilots were in our country training at our schools. Nothing has changed since then. R we stupid or what? Hopefully we will get a president someday that will love this nation as we do and stop this insanity.
