In June 2004, House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wisconsin) released a General Accounting Office (GAO) report which found that "the number of foreign visitors who overstay their visas exceeds 2.3 million and that the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) estimates of visa overstays is probably low. The GAO study also document[ed] that DHS interior enforcement to identify and deport people overstaying their visas is virtually non-existent." [1]
