Homeland Security Has Issues

The Homeland Security Department said it is weeks away from detailing a plan to flag foreign nationals who have overstayed their visas in the U.S. DHS officials told Congress yesterday they would release their plans to automatically track visa overstays using biometric markers within 30 days. Nextgov reported the system would let law enforcement and intelligence officials track illegal visitors who are potential threats to public safety and those who aren't. The disclosure came at a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee, which is examining the case of Amine al-Khalifi, the man who was arrested last month for allegedly plotting to bomb the U.S. Capitol.
