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.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
