Another Govt Boondoggle

I have again learned some interesting information from Billy Bob over at It seems that now some in the employ of something called the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (the what?) are facing subtle (and not so subtle) disciplinary action from doing the job they were hired to do. It is reported that some have been under pressure to "rubber stamp" applications for entry into this country. "Find a way to yes" I believe it is being described as. Apparently even if some laws are "bent" a bit. Contrary to finding a "way to yes" the process should be "finding a way to no" for entry into this country. Within the boundaries of the law of course. It needs to be very difficult for most foreign national to gain entry.  It is a privilege to come to this country to work and live. It is not a right. Those allowed in should feel honored for that privilege.

Some folk just don't seem to get it.

How about "finding a way to just fucking apply the law" as it reads? If "finding a way to say yes" is the plan just have laws that say yes. If "finding a way to say no" is the plan just have laws that say no. Since we have laws that say people have to fit criteria, how about just seeing if they fit the fucking criteria?

yes but apparently, if the reporting is correct, "finding a way to yes' often pushes the boundaries of the law. It seems to be political appointees putting pressure on career civil servants to shirk ther responsibility. Or worse.
