DHS Nominee Says Visa Overstays Should Receive Visit From Law Enforcement

    Posted By Jonah Bennett On 6:56 PM 01/10/2017

    During his confirmation hearing for head of the Department of Homeland Security, retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly suggested that authorities visit the homes of people overstaying their visas.

    Democratic Sen. Jon Tester initiated the discussion Tuesday, when he asked how exactly Kelly intended to handle the problem of people entering the country on visas and then simply refusing to leave.

    As Tester noted at the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, while there are certain of bureaucratic steps to complete in order to gain entrance to the U.S., once here, the federal government does not possess a solid tracking system to keep tabs on when those visas expire and whether those people have left the country.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
