It sounds like something of this kind is happening in the USCIS offices, according to the Washington Times, which got its hands on an internal report about corruption and crime inside the agency. Here's my question—if it's true that "Two District Adjudications Officers are allegedly involved with known (redacted) Islam terrorist members," doesn't that suggest that said District Adjudication Officers may be Islamic immigrants themselves? Isn't this something that the USCIS should consider before giving them these jobs? The answer is no, by the way, because it's illegal to consider it. Sorry!

There are other kinds of corruption in the article, which names no names, because the people mentioned in the report haven't been indicted. In an earlier USCIS corruption story, corruption cases involving people who had been charged seemed to involve a disproportionate number of people with Hispanic names.[ - Cash, cars, jewelry Some corruption cases involving immigration officers, September 24, 2006]

U.S. agents accused of aiding Islamist scheme — The Washington Times, America's Newspaper

By Sara Carter August 15, 2007

A criminal investigations report says several U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employees are accused of aiding Islamic extremists with identification fraud and of exploiting the visa system for personal gain.

The confidential 2006 USCIS report said that despite the severity of the potential security breaches, most are not investigated "due to lack of resources" in the agency's internal affairs department.

"Two District Adjudications Officers are allegedly involved with known (redacted) Islam terrorist members," said the internal document obtained by The Washington Times.

The group "was responsible for numerous robberies and used the heist money to fund terrorist activities. The District Adjudications Officers made numerous DHS database queries to track (Alien)-File movement and check on the applicants' status for (redacted) members and associates."
