The activists at the American Freedom Defense Initiative have released a video of an operative going undercover to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services being told that if you’re from Syria and used a faked passport to get into the United States, you still can get immigration services.
AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office “and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services.”
She explained they were afraid to come into the office since “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally” using fake passports.
The USCIS official didn’t bat an eye.
He said “we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.”
The real name really didn’t matter, either, he explained.
“We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’”
The Daily Caller reported the official, identified only as “Sergio,” asked when the family arrived, “presumably to see if they would be eligible for Temporary Protected Status, which protects Syrian immigrants, of illegal or legal status, from deportation.”
“Chances are considering the situation in Syria, they are not going to be sent back,” he said.
So, he said, they likely could get a work permit.
