A shocking new video Our latest AFDI video is going viral: it’s featured on Drudge and the Daily Caller and at the top of their newsletter, as well as at the Right Scoop and elsewhere. It’s a bombshell. We went undercover at the US Immigration office in New York. We film an immigration official that if you’re a jihad terrorist and want to enter the U.S. to kill infidels, it couldn’t be easier. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is a component of the Department of Homeland Security, accepts FAKE PASSPORTS.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is a component of the Department of Homeland Security, will welcome you even if you come from a hotbed of jihad terrorism and have a fake passport.
AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services, but were afraid to come in to the USCIS themselves since “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally,” with fake passports. The USCIS official was unconcerned about the fake passports, explaining, “In the case of asylees and refugees, we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.” He was likewise unconcerned about the possibility that the migrant was falsifying his identity: “We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’” Imagine how easily a terrorist could exploit this loophole-ridden system. And now, finally, people are learning about just how bad the system really is. This is the only path to genuine reform.
An undercover video exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller Tuesday claims to show an immigration official in New York giving advice on how illegal Syrian immigrants can receive asylum with fake passports.
Laura Loomer, an activist, for Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative visited a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Port Chester, N.Y. on January 6. Loomer told an employee that she knows a family from Syria that is afraid to come into the office because they are in the nation illegally and she wants to “make sure that they are integrated and they have documentation services.”
“The issue with them is that they have fake passports,” Loomer says in the video. An employee AFDI identified to TheDC as Sergio responded, “We waive sometimes the passports or whatever because they are unable to provide that documentation.”
He asked when the Syrian family arrived, presumably the see if they would be eligible for Temporary Protected Status. An amnesty protecting Syrian immigrants, of illegal or legal status, from deportation. It is eligible to Syrians who have been in the U.S. since Oct. 1, 2016. and the date to register ends in a few weeks.
“The fake passport is one thing, we are going to use the name that is on the passport as AKA, also known as,” the man identified as Sergio responded. He added, “chances are considering the situation in Syria, they are not going to be sent back.”
He said the family could get a work permit and that Loomer should “file accurately” the paper work and to make sure that she uses their correct names or “the names they used with these passports, which are not their own names.”
The USCIS employee went on to say, “Was there ever a situation where people came with fraudulent documents and qualified for asylum? Yes, because it’s understood that they can not always obtain genuine documents. So it’s far from being unique.”
The Daily Caller asked the USCIS if giving asylum to immigrants with fake documents is “far from unique” like the USCIS employee said in the video. A spokesperson responded by saying they do not “publicly discuss individual immigration cases” and giving a link to a information on their refugee and asylum programs. Nearly 85,000 Syrian refugees were resettled in Fiscal Year 2016 and the Obama administration has sped up resettlement in the president’s last days in office.
A USCIS spokesperson also said that the agency cannot confirm the authenticity of the video as they claim it is heavily edited. The USCIS did not confirm nor deny that Sergio is an employee with the agency.
The DC has previously reported on an internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement memo which states difficulty in preventing fraud in the refugee program as “bad actors” use false biographies and “produce and submit fictitious supporting documentation.” It has also been reported that the Islamic State has a thriving fake passport industry.
