Immigration and DHS Corruption

Posted by Admin on June 17, 2006

Dept. of Homeland Security's (DHS) Citizenship and Immigration Services is rife with corruption according to whistle blower and former CIS Chief of Security & Investigation Michael J. Maxwell.

Whenever someone comes forward with accusations and such it is important to understand what sort of credibility they have. While being in a high-level position usually serves as pretty good credentials, many need to know more about the person to take them at their word. Such was a reasonable observation made in the case of Michael Maxwell.

It would seem from the following notes that we can take his word on the fact that things are pretty bad at DHS — which of course leads to an obvious security threat that should not be overlooked by our government.

The time is now to act upon these revelations before going any further with any type of new legislation regarding immigration which would most likely sap the budget for this area of government expenditure. Surely getting rid of corrupt officials and workers within the agency will be cost-effective as well.

Regarding Mr. Maxwell's credentials and past coverage of this issue — there are a few resources I have gathered:

(…) I have also confirmed the reliability of Mike Maxwell, the former Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Office of Security and Investigations, who quit because he was outraged over the blatant refusal of CIS to solve the security problems he uncovered. I am putting together both open and closed Congressional hearings to expose the massive incompetence, fraud and even espionage at the Department of Homeland Security and CIS. (,,,)

I hope the American Public takes these concerns seriously and will call upon their Representatives to demand an investigation into, and correction of this problem.
