Good news and bad news about preventing terrorist infiltration into US

I’ve got good news and bad news about our efforts to prevent terrorists from getting visas to lawfully enter the United States.

The good news is, our world class vetting procedures have denied visas to 2231 people suspected of having terrorist ties since 2001.

The bad news is that same foolproof system allowed 9500 suspected terrorists to enter the country. That’s the number of visas that have been revoked since 2001 – after the visa holder had entered the US – because the holder had ties to terrorism.

    So the glass is half-full, right?

      More like 1/4 full… or 3/4 full of terrorists.

    And have any of those 9500 been deported? If any were deported have they been let back in since?
