The vetting procedures of the American immigration process, including admittance to the country may require a major overhaul, experts said. After it was revealed that the suspect in the Manhattan and New Jersey bombings was reported two years ago as a terrorist to FBI, the Perth Herald Tribune contacted the experts in the area of counterintelligence from five countries. They admitted that the protection measures at the border implemented after 9/11 were “probably prematurely modified”.
On September 19th, 2016 Homeland Security Inspector General’s office reported that 858 individuals from “special interest countries” — meaning countries that are considered to be “of concern to the national security” of the US — were supposed to have been deported but were instead granted US citizenship.
Work visa without access to the welfare benefits
The experts in counterterrorism, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, think that United States “need to filter the immigrants from the countries that may be targeted by the Middle Eastern terrorists, including some in Europe”. This solution may include the Australian off-shore model. The immigrants should be granted visas under the condition of “no access to the welfare benefits for at least 3 years” after getting the resident visa and “never” in the case of temporary arrangements”. The Immigrants should have also access to the medical help “only in the critical situations”. They should be encouraged to get their medical insurance for an emergency, that should be affordable for them.
Some experts, said also that the United States policymakers and lawmakers should discuss whether there is a case “to terminate the visa-waiver provisions”, that allow citizens from a group of countries to be visitors for up to three months without applying for the tourist visa
