The U.S. is planning to re-open the
"following-to-join" program known as
"family reunification" for refugees.
Most of the
reunification" provisions in the U.S. refugee
suspended two years ago after the rate of fraudulent
family claims was found to be as high as 90 percent
among Somali refugees.
With the new regulations, a refugee
or asylee in the U.S. can petition for refugee admission
for a parent and or an unmarried child under 21, but
DNA evidence of the claimed parent-child
relationships must be established.

the DNA testing program, which will be run to a large
degree by the same fraudsters who caused the U.S. to
close the program to begin with.
