Homeland Security Orders CBP Agents to Verity Validity of Student Visas

The federal government has no way to determine whether foreign exchange students are in the U.S. legally, New York Congressman Peter King told CNN.

CNN reports that Border Patrol and ICE monitor different parts of the visa – one confirms a student has a visa, the other checks to see whether the visa is in compliance. 

There’s no technology to link both agencies’ records.

The Department of Homeland Security ordered CBP to verify that students entering the U.S. have valid student visas.
