The DHS Inspector General Report on Fraud Detection at USCIS: Pious Immigration Baloney
Angelo Paparelli, Jan. 16, 2012: "[T]his post is about the multiple pages of sanctimonious hogwash (summarized here), served up last week by the Homeland Security Department's Office of Inspector General ("The Effects of USCIS Adjudication Procedures and Policies on Fraud Detection by Immigration Services Officers"). ... If the IG really wants to be fully responsive to Sen. Grassley and
can the baloney, it should reopen its investigation, conduct a
statistically valid review, and solicit the observations of external
stakeholders, for as Carl Sagan observed:
Finding the occasional straw of truth
awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence,
vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough
habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems
that face us -- and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs
by the next charlatan who comes along.
We are a Nation of Immigrators, not a nation of suckers."
