The finding was revealed during a Senate Immigration Subcommittee hearing on Wednesday. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., did a double-take when Craig Healthy, DHS assistant director for national security investigations, announced the statistic.

“So, 3,000 [overstays] were investigated, are under investigation right now. But those 3,000 could’ve come in any one of the years in the last 20 years, correct?” Perdue asked, the Washington Free Beacon reported Friday.

“That is correct, sir,” Healy said. He added that roughly 40 percent of those individuals under investigation are eventually reported, located and removed from the country.

  1. First off I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Thanks!

  2. Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

  3. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images
    on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to understand so much
    about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I feel that you could do with some percent to force
    the message house a bit, however other than that, that is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

  5. Hey there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website
    with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Fantastic blog and fantastic design and style.

  6. When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Therefore that’s why this paragraph is perfect.
