DHS sends permanent-resident green cards to people who didn’t apply for them
…officials acknowledge there is “no accurate means of identifying the exact number of potentially hundreds of cards sent to incorrect addresses for cases processed in ELIS.”In other words, the computer system was badly designed in the first place.
As seems to be the case repeatedly in government lately, the blame goes to the computer systems, as if they are beyond [human] control.... But that’s apparently the case at CIS.
The report says the cards were sent erroneously “due to a system limitation” that prevented humans from changing the addresses. Even when green-card holders requested a change of address, employees could not update the system.
Is anyone surprised? Look at who's sitting in the oval office. Yep, the emperor.
