*Orwellian Double-Speak: CARRP=Controlled Application review & Resolution Program

For all intents & purposes: “Muslims Need Not Apply”

Read the “Muslims Need Not Apply” reports and articles linked below about previously-secret, racial & religious profiling  and mandatory discrimination program CARRP (Controlled Application Review &  Resolution Program) detailing how DHS, through CARRP, unconstitutionally delays and eventually denies basic human rights & due process, including naturalization of eligible individuals from Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian communities. This secret program was recently exposed by Peoples’ rights organizations and true investigative journalists all over the world !

The program relies on deeply flawed mechanisms, including error-ridden & over-broad watch-list systems, security checks, religious, national origin & associated profiling; which, predictably catches far too many harmless applicants in its net and overwhelmingly affects applicants who are Muslim or perceived-to-be Muslim.

“CARRP effectively turns over the immigration rights application process to the FBI (and other agencies), allowing them to dictate to USCIS when or whether an application should be granted, denied, or held in abeyance. It also provides the FBI an opportunity to comment on USCIS’s proposed decisions in immigration cases, to submit questions for USCIS to ask in interviews, and to suggest Requests for Evidence that USCIS should make to applicants.

CARRP requires USCIS officers to inform the FBI or other relevant law enforcement agencies as soon as an applicant it has labeled an “NS” (National Security concern) has filed an immigration application. As a result, far too often, the FBI exploits this information to blackmail applicants to work for them as informants, telling applicants that the FBI can help them get their long-delayed immigration application adjudicated and approved if they agree to snitch on their communities.

CARRP: Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program. Of course, in the Orwellian double-speak: that means delaying, denying and refusing rightful applicants for citizenship based on whim of racial, religious, peace & justice friends profiling.
