Foreigners who overstay their visas outnumber those who cross the border illegally

Via Billy

A Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at Miami International Airport (MIA) checks the passports of international travelers.

Among an increasing number of immigration cases in Miami federal court, the ones that stand out are foreign travelers accused of making false statements in their visa applications in an effort to hide previous visits when they overstayed their visas.

At least five new cases of visa overstays appeared in court dockets in the last few weeks, coinciding with the publication of a new report that says foreign nationals who remain longer than their visas authorize now outnumber undocumented immigrants who cross the border illegally.

The report from the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) in New York says that since 2007 a majority of undocumented immigrants in the United States are the result of visa overstays, not illegal border crossers.

  2. Thus proving that the ones who pay thousands of dollars to walk accross the border in teh summer heat are the dumbest of the dumb. They could have got a tourist visa, tickets to Disney and flown first class for less.

    1. It would have been a lot cheaper/quicker if I had done that for relatives instead and doing it legally over 12 years and taking complete responsibility for 10 years, although that is the way it should be.

  3. Also, there is no way to know this, since only people who have Visas even get counted anywhere. The estimate of illegals who cross the border under the radar could be as high as 30 million.
