The 9/11 Hijackers, Visas, and the ‘Gang of 8′ Bill

When it came to maintaining legal visa status, the 9/11 hijackers were rather sloppy. Many violated the terms of their visas and some illegally overstayed them. Despite this, they were successful.

Nearly twelve years later, defenders of the ‘Gang of 8′ immigration bill moving through the Congressional sausage grinder, refer to bringing 11 million Mexicans currently inside the U.S. ‘out of the shadows’. Aside from that figure being little more than an agreed upon, ‘faux’ statistic so as not to alarm the Gang of 8′s opponents, it doesn’t include the number of Other than Mexican (OTM’s) currently within our borders. In the immigration debate, references to illegal aliens undocumented workers from Mexico dominate the discourse because, well, they make up the vast majority of individuals who will benefit from it.

That doesn’t mean that others won’t.

First, consider the ‘Trust but Verify’ amendment introduced by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY). The Senate overwhelmingly voted to kill it. Among other things, Paul’s amendment would have made things tougher for individuals from parts of the world that are known to breed jihadists:

A Student Visa National Security Registration system is created to add increased security screening of students coming from countries known to be incubators of extremism and exporters of international terrorism.

That this amendment would be shot down in flames little more than two months after very warranted questions were raised about a Saudi national on a student visa, who was injured in the Boston marathon bombing, is incredible.
