This is the March 16, 2017 hearing on "Immigration Benefits Vetting: Examining Critical Weaknesses in USCIS Systems," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Subcommittee Chairman Scott Perry: "The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) plays an essential role in processing millions of applications each year for people requesting permanent or temporary entry into the United States. However, watchdogs repeatedly voice concerns about USCIS management of the critical information technology (IT) systems used to process these applications, and found instances of fraud in everything from asylum to immigrant investor applications. Today's hearing will focus on findings from the DHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on USCIS's IT systems and the security risks from USCIS failure to manage these efforts effectively." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Lori Scialabba, Carol Harris, and John Roth.
