Hundreds of thousands of people enter the United States as immigrants yearly. They often come to find work, provide a better life for their family, or even escape the turmoil of their own country. Entering the United States is a difficult process, and for some people it takes years to finally receive permission to enter the United States. This process is used as a precaution for the protection of our country. Despite the best efforts of the United States, some people are still able to enter in even though they have a sketchy past or bad intentions.
Allowed to Enter After Lying?
In a recent news report entitled, “Barberton man to be deported for lying on immigration documents, role in Bosnian war, prosecutors say” mentions a case of a man allowed to enter the country after lying about his purpose for being here. This man claimed he was a victim of the Bosnian war; however, he was, in fact, part of a police force targeting Muslims.
Too Trusting Of Strangers.
It is scary to think that this man was able to enter the United States without any real background check. He simply told one story and everyone that handled his immigration processed just seemed to accept what he said. There may not be anything wrong with trusting people, but there are some who would love to cause destruction if permitted in. The U.S. must be able to efficiently find out the intentions of visitors, visa applicants and refugees seeking to enter the country.
Using Your Eyes to Verify Your Story.
There is a simple solution to this problem. It’s called EyeDetect®. EyeDetect® is a lie detector that can determine if someone is lying by taking measurements of a person’s eyes as he or she reads and answers questions. It is as effective as the polygraph, but faster and more cost-effective. It could solve problems such as people lying about their identity when applying for visa or immigration documents. This simple solution could be used as an added protection to help keep our country safe.
