Homeland InSecurity: Who is Protecting America's Middle Class?
NEW YORK -- The Washington Post is reporting that the suspect in the Times Square bombing attempt, Mr. Shahzad, initially lived in the United States under H1-B and F-1 visas designed to facilitate his education and give him employment.
In December 1998, he was granted an F-1 student visa. Immigration officials noted then that there was "no derogatory information" on Mr. Shahzad in any database, a law enforcement official said.
He first attended Southeastern University in Washington, D.C., a small school that lost its accreditation last year. In 2000, Mr. Shahzad transferred to the University of Bridgeport. In April 2002, he was granted an H1-B visa for skilled workers; he stayed in the U.S. for three years on that visa, gaining his M.B.A. It is not clear what company sponsored the visa, which is used to attract workers with a "specialty occupation," such as information technology.
Who - WHO in our government will FINALLY stop this and stand up for and protect American citizens?
Party on, plebes!
