The United States does not have adequate screening processes for those entering the country on visas, according to one Republican congressional leader.

Rep. Trey Gowdy rejected arguments from the Obama administration that claimed they didn’t miss any warning signs in approving San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik to obtain a visa. Gowdy relayed his concerns during a Dec. 17 oversight hearing on the U.S. visa system.

“That doesn’t make me feel any better,” Gowdy said, after hearing comments from administration officials. “There was nothing in her background that this administration says we missed … and yet there’s still 14 dead people.”

Gowdy said “it’s one thing” to admit that warning signs that Malik was a radicalized Muslim were missed.

“It’s another thing to argue that we missed nothing,” he commented.

Alan Bersin, assistant secretary for international affairs at Department of Homeland Security, insisted the system worked the way it is supposed to operated.

“There was nothing in the system that we used that would pick that up,” Bersin said.

Gowdy said the responses show the vetting process is inadequate and that the government needs to become better at getting information when it receives visa applications.

“I just listened to Ben Rhodes give a series of words like ‘extensive,’ ‘thorough,’ ‘careful,’” Gowdy said, referring to a top White House security adviser. “And I just sat here and thought, ‘Well, if all of that was true, how did we miss the lady in San Bernardino?’”

Gowdy said the notion that people have a right to come to the United States needs to end as well.

“There is no legal right to emigrate to the United States,” Gowdy said. “It’s a privilege that we confer to people.”
