WASHINGTON: Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY), Congressman Anthony Wiener, and eight other members of Congress from New York and New Jersey urged James Ziglar, Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to address the severe lack of resources at district INS offices in New York and New Jersey. Sources reveal that the New York and New Jersey offices simply do not have the resources to do their jobs effectively. Recently, the INS has been reeling from the highly-publicized issuance of renewal visas to 9/11 hijackers and the poor response of INS offices to local law enforcement officials. The joint Congressional letter is an effort to ensure that the deficiencies in the New York and New Jersey district INS offices are corrected immediately.
