Everyone has forgotten about the 4 year African family reunification MORATORIUM that began in 2008

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 6, 2017

Someone reminded me that in all of the yakking about the power of the President when it comes to determining which refugees (how many and from where) entering the US, the US State Department in 2008 halted all family reunification (the so-called P-3 program) from Somalia and a few other African countries.  Why?

Random DNA testing found widespread FRAUD.  The so-called family members were lying about who was family!

They were making up “ghost children.”


Over 20,000 African ‘refugees’ are believed to have entered the US fraudulently in a period beginning in October 2003 and ending when the fraud was uncovered in 2008. They claimed family relationships that were found to be false.

We first saw the news at the Wall Street Journal in 2008, here.  Then we followed the drama as the refugee contractors (among others) tried to stop the State Department from requiring DNA tests for all family reunification.

Here is a post I wrote in 2015 with several important links to follow to understand what happened leading up to the FOUR YEAR moratorium on Somalis being able to apply for their ‘family’ members to join them in your home towns!

For ambitious readers, click here for one of my earliest posts in 2008 with updates.

Be sure to read the fact sheet published by the DOS at the time (you will see it in its entirety here).

In recent years, applications to the P-3 program have been overwhelmingly African – primarily Somalis, Ethiopians and Liberians – accounting for some 95% of the P-3 applications.

Then this:

The rate of fraud discovered varies among nationalities and from country to country, and is difficult to establish definitively as many individuals refused to submit DNA samples. We were, however, only able to confirm all claimed biological relationships in fewer than 20% of cases (family units). The remainder contained at least one negative result (fraudulent relationship) or refused to be tested.

This is what I said based on the numbers:

95% of immigrants using this program are from Africa.  36,000 alone came in the years since 2003 and as high (or higher!) than 80% of those are most likely here illegally.

As far as we know none of the fraudulent entrants were identified and removed.

The President through his Department of State does have the power to selectively block certain ethnic groups from entering the US.

I followed the issue closely and I never saw the mainstream media question the Administration’s right to stop these groups of so-called ‘refugees.’

    Isn’t it a bit late for this?


  2. Trump needs to move on chain migration as soon as possible. In fact, Trump needs to move as quickly as possible on all immigration matters, before the horde completely overwhelms us. Even with a president who understands the need to stop the flood, liberal judges, the media, and filthy rich globalist alpha-maggots like Soros are making this an uphill battle.
