A new report on the Syrian refugee resettlement program reveals that the United Nations — not U.S. officials — initially pick and choose who can move to the United States and even become an American citizen.

What’s more, the vetting system used by the U.S.-funded United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is wide open to rampant fraud, raising the specter that potential terrorists could buy their way into the United States, according to the analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies.

The report focused on a little-known path to how refugees get into America: The United Nations makes the first pick, not the State Department.

Under the system, the UNHCR interviews those seeking to come to America once or twice before turning that list over to the United States to consider.
