Some 175 immigrants were approved for citizenship even though their names weren't properly run through the FBI's name-check databases, potentially missing red flags that may have disqualified them from naturalization, the Obama administration admitted this weekend.
The problem was so significant enough that the government halted all naturalization ceremonies already in the pipeline and banned U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers from approving new citizenship application...
[It] affected about 15,000 applications in total. Homeland Security officials blamed computer code for the problem...
In other words, the government made a big booboo. But it's not their fault, it's the fault of immigrant loving computers'... That meddlesome code!
I know, I know. Obama's immigration enforcement being a crapnado? Hardly news (see
ICE Brags About Arresting 101 Illegals... Out of 172,000
). Ineptness isn't exactly a new thing when it comes to national security. In this case, a supposed "computer code" is to blame... Although it matters not. Obama's immigration policy? Poop schnitzels.
