A Homeland Security official was grilled by a House committee over the lack of social media screening for people trying to enter the U.S. on visas for refugees, The San Francisco Gate reports. 

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, told members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that checking social media in refugee cases often yields little results.

Congress wants to know how thoroughly the U.S. examines the backgrounds of people seeking to come to the country.

The issue has taken on an urgency after it was discovered that one of the San Bernardino shooters came to the U.S. on a K-1 fiancé visa in July 2014 after passing multiple background checks.

The FBI said Tashfeen Malik never publicly posted her allegiance to jihad on Facebook but instead sent private messages.
