[Congressional Record: November 8, 2001 (House)]
[Page H7915]
From the Congressional Record Online via GPO Access []

  (Mr. DEAL of Georgia asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. DEAL of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, each year some 75 million 
individuals enter the United States and are inspected at our major 
airports. It is estimated that about 10,000 of these have inadequate 
documents to justify their existence in this country, but are allowed 
to enter anyway under a deferred system in which they are asked to 
report back.
  Recently, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice issued a 
report from which I will quote the executive summary: ``We found that 
nearly 11 percent of individuals paroled into the country under the 
deferred inspections process failed to appear for the completion of 
their inspection.'' That would mean some 979 individuals did not appear 
for their deferred inspections. It continues: ``This is a conservative 
estimate, however, based upon the fact that we were unable to determine 
the outcome of 20 percent of the cases selected due to inadequate 
  They give the statistics, and they say the importance of follow-up 
action is evidenced by the results of our analysis which revealed that 
among those who failed to appear, INS inspectors identified over 50 
percent as either having criminal records or immigration violations at 
the time of entry. They also point out that nine committed serious 
aggravated felonies after they were paroled into our country. They 
point out that the INS continues to use this faulty information.
  Mr. President, you will be in my State tonight to reassure the 
Nation. To make us feel secure, do something about the fiasco that 
exists in the INS.
