As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
The Justice Department has lost track of numerous foreign nationals who were brought into the United States to help with law enforcement cases and may have criminal histories of their own – something that could be putting the public “at risk,” the DOJ’s inspector general warned in a newly released audit.
The report released by the Office of the Inspector General identified 62 foreign nationals brought into the U.S. who have since “absconded” from Justice Department oversight. The audit called this “especially problematic” because “these individuals often have criminal histories or are involved with criminal organizations.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Therefore, there are risks associated with these individuals remaining in the United States unsupervised and the public can be at risk,” the report said.
The report warned that others could be missing too: As of August 2018, the Department of Homeland Security was still seeking current information for 665 people identified as DOJ-sponsored foreign nationals as part of its own tracking.
