Hundreds Ordered Deported From U.S. After Wrongly Being Granted Citizenship

 Homeland Security is cracking down on illegal aliens in the U.S.

At least 858 people that had been ordered deported or removed under another name were improperly granted US citizenship due to a failure to maintain adequate fingerprint records, according to a new report.

The failure occurred, in part, because older fingerprint records were not digitized as part of DHS or the FBI fingerprint databases and therefore could not be readily searched thereby preventing those who had been ordered deported or removed from being identified.

The Department of Homeland Security Inspector General report said there are still “about 148,000 older fingerprint records that have not been digitized of aliens with final deportation orders or who are criminals or fugitives.”
