In the aftermath of the San Bernardino terror attack, a representative from the Obama administration appeared before Congress and was forced to admit that they have no idea of the whereabouts of thousands of immigrants whose visas were revoked over terror ties.

On Thursday, Michele Thoren Bond, the assistant secretary for the Bureau of Consular Affairs, appeared before a House oversight committee and was grilled by Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz over the visa status of thousands of immigrants and visitors coming from Muslim nations.

As Fox News reports, Bond told the committee that since 2001, the U.S. revoked more than 122,000 visas, including 9,500 because of links to terrorism.

Rep. Chaffetz then asked how many of those whose visas were revoked are here now, but Bond had no information on that question.

Chaffetz was incredulous on this lack of information. “You don’t have a clue do you?” he asked.

The Congressman asked again where these people went and Bond merely replied, “I don’t know.”

The testimony comes on the heels of the administration’s announcement that it wants to bring in tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of Syrian refugees into the nation with the promise that such immigrants would be thoroughly vetted for ties to terrorism.

Detractors worry that the administration will bring in an untold number of ISIS terrorists hiding behind the claim that they are “refugees”, just as the leader of the Paris attacks did.

Worse, if the administration can’t locate immigrants already here who have been flagged for terror ties, it is wondered how Obama can make sure tens of thousands more can be properly vetted.

Senators Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Jeff Sessions, R-AL, recently noted that the threat is real.

“We are dealing with an enemy that has shown it is not only capable of bypassing U.S. screening, but of recruiting and radicalizing Muslim migrants after their entry to the United States,” Cruz said immediately after the attacks in San Bernardino.

For his part, Senator Sessions put out a list of 12 supposedly vetted refugees that ended up joining terrorism plots against the U.S.

“This list–which only covers 2015 and not the many jihadis from prior years–illustrates just how incapable our government is of vetting refugees or predicting post-entry radicalization,” a spokesman for Sessions said. “Yet the president wants a completely blank-check [in the appropriations bill] to fund not only all of these existing refugee programs from across the globe, but to add a permanent Syrian resettlement program to it–funded directly out of Americans’ paychecks and retirement accounts.”

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
