Those failures are issues that need to be addressed that can tie into further errors, with regard to people entering illegally.
If individuals with such assets are restricted due to errors, then it is very likely the result will be breaking the law themselves if they are on the "outside" and the error is being "enforced" by airports and embassies.
Would they have chosen to utilize such assets in the first place to avoid legality, then it would certainly be in their power to have done so and I find it quite peculiar that such considerations are not taken into account by enforcement agencies.
Instead, their "desire to obey the law" and their "not utilizing assets to disobey the law" are considered a "higher risk."
That whole thing sounds rather like a lack of intelligence,
which I feel should be brought to attention.
Federal staff are representatives of the US and the US should not represent a lack of intelligence. Immigration laws need to be interpreted further and federal staff should receive this new intel, so that they can act accordingly.
After such implementations, cases of immigrants caught in these circumstances that end up breaking the law because the law won't hear them would be reduced and those who aren't caught in any circumstances and decide to break the law would be more fairly punished, rather than the current "issue" which has cropped up.
The costs to communities, which are, of course, people, is tremendous. Here, citizens, including legal immigrants, don't want their children attending many of our local schools because they are failing so badly. They came to this country for better opportunities and a better life for their children. A good education is required for any kind of success. This requires considerably more money to afford the better school districts, and that is further burdened by the very high property taxes to pay for those schools.
All walk-in health clinics in this city closed due to high rates of non-payers . This puts a huge burden on the local hospital and affects all citizens by limiting their access to health care, especially emergency care.
These and many other problems are not restricted to this community, but are being suffered all over the country. This is the first time since the 1800's that immigration has had such a negative impact on so many.
With the downturn in the economy, the high rate of unemployment (the true rate is in the 14% range) and with approximately 17 million Americans under employed (working part-time, or well below skill/education level), the simple truth is that we can't afford any of this any longer.
Our federal immigration laws don't need further interpretation. They need to be enforced.
The United States of America is not required, for any reason, to accept any foreign national if it chooses not to, for whatever reason.
Nor is it required to make special exceptions for particular cases, as this is the Mother of slippery slopes. An exception here, a blind eye to the law there, is exactly why we're having this debate now.
