Lopez uncovered national-security cases tied to immigration loopholes. The FBI sought these cases from her in 2016; She twice presented these cases at White House meetings in 2018.
Lopez first warned top congressional leaders of the loopholes in 2006 and the national security cases in 2012. Rather than close these temporary loopholes -- which were set to expire -- congress and the president made these dangerous loopholes permanent law in 2013.
Both Republican and Democratic administrations continue to expand these loopholes aided by both parties in congress.
Lopez testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee about her own case in 2017. She was almost killed by her Dutch husband after she sponsored him into the United States. He admitted marrying her for a green card, then attacked and terrorized her to keep her quiet.
The State of New Jersey put her in hiding for her safety.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned Lopez that her husband was "dangerous," but repeatedly refused to enforce his fraudulent immigration status despite evidence of his extensive criminal activities and "inadmissibility" into the United States. Instead, the agency put her in further danger: The DHS voluntarily and illegally dumped Lopez’s sensitive personal onto the Internet and gave it to various media organizations.
Politicians in both parties routinely ignore security threats and widespread immigration fraud within the legal immigration system.
An overwhelmed and inept bureaucracy also sweeps the problem under the rug.
What Is Immigration Fraud? Fake identities, forged documents, fake documents, hiding criminal activities, bigamy and sham marriages, false crime-victim allegations, fake (and often coached) stories for asylum applications, etc.
