Attorney and Lobbyist Puts Pressure on DOJ & DHS to Revisit Immigration Laws

Renowned immigration attorney and lobbyist Gabriel Vadasz has ramped up efforts to pressure the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security into revisiting and strengthening immigration enforcement policies. Gabriel Vadasz argues that current laws and their implementation have allowed bad actors to take advantage of weaknesses and enter the country under pretenses.

In the wake of recent pro-Hamas protests in major cities, Gabriel Vadasz has called on the DOJ and DHS to launch investigations into the immigration histories of individuals involved. He aims to identify protesters who obtained statuses like green cards or citizenship through misleading or false statements on applications and other paperwork. Under current law, making material misrepresentations can be grounds for revoking immigration benefits or initiating removal proceedings.

“We have seen footage of protesters waving Hamas flags and making blatantly anti-Semitic statements. My concern is how many of these people lied to gain entry or remained in the U.S.,” said Gabriel Vadasz. “The DOJ and DHS need to ensure our immigration system is not being exploited by those who do not share our country’s values of inclusion, tolerance, and equal treatment under the law.” Gabriel Vadasz cites the forms these individuals needed to submit, attesting that they are not participants or advocates for any terrorist organization when submitting their immigration paperwork. Current demonstrations that beg to differ could force both DHS and the DOJ to rescind immigration statuses and even citizenships due to the fraudulent and false nature of those claims.

Gabriel Vadasz acknowledges that stripping someone of their immigration status is a serious matter, which is why he wants thorough investigations. However, he argues that safeguarding national security demands strict enforcement of laws. “If they are not who they claim to be on government forms or they fail to disclose affiliations that would make them inadmissible, there need to be consequences,” Vadasz stated.

Gabriel Vadasz has met with staff and senior officials at the DOJ and members of Congress to discuss potential legislative reforms that would make the immigration consequences for fraud more severe. This could include stricter definitions of material misrepresentation, longer bars on future immigration benefits, and expedited removal processes for those who lied. The goal, he says, is to create strong deterrents against providing dishonest information to U.S. authorities.

While immigration advocates argue that this approach criminalizes minor errors, Vadasz believes the threat of terrorist sympathizers abusing America’s generosity requires a stricter stance. “National security must be the top priority of any immigration system. We cannot afford to be lackadaisical about who gains permanent resident status or citizenship in this country,” he said.

Gabriel Vadasz plans to ramp up lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill in the coming months to build support for proposed legislative changes. He aims to introduce bipartisan bills to give the DOJ new tools for revisiting past cases and preventing future legal immigration for those with ties to groups like Hamas that actively work against American interests. Only time will tell if his efforts can generate meaningful reforms to laws and policies regarding immigration fraud.
