THE AMNESTY ASSAULT on AMERICA’S YOUTH – It’s all about keeping
Here are some key facts presented by
the CBO: 1) There are now 40 million foreign-born people living in the United
States, making immigrants a bigger share of our national population than at any
time since 1920. 2) Twenty-two million — a majority of the foreign born — are
non-citizens. 3) Eleven-and-a-half million — a majority of the non-citizens —
are illegal aliens.
Overstays account for much of illegal immigration, yet visa numbers, approval rates have gone up
WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 29,
2015) – The Obama administration has
increased the number of visas issued for
visits to the United States by 71 percent in
just six years, according to a new report from
the Center for Immigration Studies.
The same data from the State Department shows that, from 2009 through 2014, the share of visa applications that were denied dropped by 19 percent.
This despite the fact that nearly half of all illegal aliens entered on visas and overstayed, and despite the fact that we have no way of identifying these overstays because the U.S. still does not have a check-out system for foreign visitors, even though Congress has mandated it eight separate times.
The number of "nonimmigrant" visas (mainly for tourists, students, and workers) issued by the State Department climbed from 5.8 million in FY2009 to 9.9 million in FY 2014. The percentage of visa denials to all visa decisions dropped from 18.6 percent in FY 2009 to 15.3 percent in FY 2014. This translates into a one denial for every 5.5 visa issuances in 2014, up from one denial for every 4.3 issuances in 2009.

David North, a Center senior fellow and author of the report, said, "The Obama administration doesn’t seem to be concerned about the size of the illegal population in the country. They are issuing more non-immigrant visas, and denying fewer – a policy that ensures more visa overstayers at a time when there is small likelihood of deportation unless the alien is arrested for a felony."
Identifying a potential visa abuser is cheaper and easier during the visa issuance process; once a person is in the United States and overstays a visa, deportation proceedings are expensive and time-consuming. Unlike denied visas, deportations can be challenged in court and drag out for years.
