New regulations on family reunification available for comment on Federal Register

The long-awaited new regulations for the fraud-ridden (P-3) family reunification program of  the US State Department were published in the Federal Register on Sept. 8th.   Concerned citizens have 60 days to weigh in on whether the proposed (limited!) DNA testing will be enough to stem the tide of fraudulent claims for family reunification mostly from Africa.

We first reported the scandal here in August of 2008 after learning about it from the Wall Street Journal.

Almost a year ago we reported that the program that allowed as many as 80% of Somalis claiming to be “family,” but in fact not related at all, to enter the US illegally.  The State Department estimates that from 2003-2008, 36,000 Africans arrived fraudulently and it has no plans to determine who they are.
