ICE Visa Security Program Hampered By Inconsistencies, GAO Says – HSToday

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has not consistently implemented an initiative to scrutinize US visa applicants and still has not expanded the program to many high-risk countries, warned a recent report from congressional investigators.

ICE established the Visa Security Program eight years ago to investigate the background of visa applicants seeking to travel to the United States and thus block them from coming if applicants have terrorist or criminal connections.
