Dianne Feinstein: Visa Waiver Program America’s ‘Achilles’ Heel’


On Sunday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) warned that terrorists may have already exploited America’s visa waiver program to enter the country to do harm.

She said the “visa waiver program is the Achilles’ heel of America” because terrorists “can come back from training” and “go through a visa waiver country, and they come into this country.”

Feinstein noted that even though there are no-fly lists and terrorist lists, terrorists can use “stolen travel documents” or “pick up a false passport” to enter the country.

“So, we have a big problem there,”she said. “I think we need to take a look at the visa waiver program again, and see what we can do to prevent this kind of thing from happening, because I believe it will happen, if it hasn’t already.”

Federal immigration officials like Kenneth Palinkas and Senators like Jeff Sessions (R-AL) have been warning Americans for years about the potential dangers of America’s lax visa waiver program.
