US look­ing for 606,000 who over­stayed visas

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Obituaries -

The U.S. gov­ern­ment has pulled to­gether the num­bers and na­tion­al­i­ties of for­eign trav­el­ers who en­tered the coun­try legally in 2017 as non­im­mi­grants but over­stayed their visas or their au­tho­rized pe­ri­ods of ad­mis­sion – thus re­main­ing with­out le­gal sta­tus.

A De­part­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity re­port for fis­cal year 2017 shows that, for the sec­ond year in a row, more than 606,000 vis­i­tors to the United States over­stayed their tourist, work, busi­ness and stu­dent visas.

Vis­i­tors who stay be­yond their pe­riod of ad­mis­sion be­come un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants at risk of de­por­ta­tion.
