Thousands of Green Cards Mishandled Over Past 3 Years, Inspector General Reports

The federal government mishandled thousands of green cards over the past three years, according to a new Department of Homeland Security inspector general report. 

Among the problems were electronic system errors that led to at least 19,000 cards being issued with correct information or as duplicates.

The inspector general also found that some green card applicants received a card valid for 10 years, instead of the intended two years.

But the head of U.S. Customs and Immigration Services said some of the report’s conclusions were exaggerated, ABC News reports. 

The USCIS director said none of the green cards were sent to people who were ineligible to receive them.

The Justice Department is leading an investigation to determine if Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., a former FBI agent, violated the law when he solicited campaign cash from foreign nationals in exchange for helping an Israeli obtain a green card, USA Today reports.

The House Ethics Committee voted unanimously to hand the probe over to the Justice Department to investigate.

Grimm, of Staten Island, referred questions to his attorney, William McGinley.

“We appreciate the committee’s decision to defer consideration of this matter while we continue to work with the Department of Justice to favorably resolve the false allegations against Congressman Grimm,” McGinley said in a statement. “Any fair and objective review of all of the facts in this matter will conclude that Congressman Grimm engaged in no wrongdoing. We are confident that the Department of Justice and the Ethics Committee will reach that result.”
