WASHINGTON, DC - Yesterday the chair of the joint committee Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) made it absolutely clear that the zero accountability and inability to answer basic questions about security by Senior Department of Homeland Security Officials before Congress was unacceptable:
Ms. Burriesci, I've asked you the number of American's who've traveled to Syria, you don't know. The number of Americans who may have traveled and returned, you don't know. The number of Syrian refugees who've entered the country in the last year, you don't know. The number of visa waiver program overstays, you don't know. The number of visa waiver overstays who may have been to Syria before they came here, you don't know. And the number of American citizens on the no-fly list and you don't know. And yet you are the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Screening Coordination, Office of Policy, Department of Homeland Security in front of the oversight committee and you can't give us one single number to some, I think, pretty basic questions?
What do you think?
