Smart, Real Smart

Apparently, Homeland Security doesn't like the backlog of immigration applications so they are considering giving permanent status even though FBI background checks aren't complete:
the Department of Homeland Security is preparing to grant permanent residency to tens of thousands of applicants before the FBI completes a required background check.

Those eligible are immigrants whose fingerprints have cleared the FBI database of criminal convictions and arrests, but whose names have not yet cleared the FBI's criminal or intelligence files after six months of waiting.

The immigrants who are granted permanent status, more commonly known as getting their green cards, will be expected eventually to clear the FBI's name check. If they don't, their legal status will be revoked and they'll be deported.
We can't deport the people are here illegally, how in the world are we going to deport people who DHS said were legal and all of the sudden aren't?

As the Instapundit said, this will be uncontroversial.
