Terror alert: Foreign students go off grid with expired visas


Recommended Posts


WASHINGTON, D.C. — As America’s colleges resume classes, thousands of foreign students with expired visas are no-shows.


The Department of Homeland Security says 6,000 of them represent a national security threat, but the DHS admits it has no idea where they are.


While the 6,000 are considered subjects of interest, DHS says it has lost track of 58,000 foreigners who entered the U.S. on student visas.


“They just disappear,” U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., told ABC News. “They get the visas and they disappear.”


Most of the 9/11 hijackers were in the U.S. on expired student visas. Coburn said that since those attacks, the government had arrested 26 foreigners with student visas for terrorism-related activities.
