Dear Editor:

The Office of Inspector General's finding that INS could not account for $69 million worth of property signals how incompetent middle and upper management of the agency stands. It appears required paperwork to ensure the safeguarding of property, paid for by taxpayers, is little or no concern to these highly paid officers, yet the paperwork required by the INS for all types of immigration applications has to be exacting, confirms the double standards of INS. I have long suspected that the complicated chain of command within INS is responsible for the day to day mismanagement, not only of property and equipment, but of all immigration applications. The splitting of the agency cannot come soon enough and Senator Ashcroft must set a date for this process to happen. The $69 million loss must be reflected in the down-sizing of top-heavy middle management, for it appears many cannot handle their job roles responsibly. In nearly every other quarter of corporate America, such incompetencies would not be tolerated. The application of simple technology could have prevented this loss of property and equipment theft.
