ABSTRACT
The article reports on the name checking of immigration applicants by immigration officials which was required by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to avoid terrorism. It says that though security checks take only minutes, these checks can take weeks or years, as the agency manually searches hundreds of FBI locations. Immigration ombudsman Prakash Khatri remarks on the problems brought by the name checking and recommends the scrapping of the program or the narrowing of its scope.
