At least 30 foreigners whose visas were revoked because of terrorism concerns are believed to remain in the U.S. as a result of major gaps in the nation’s defense against terrorism, says congressional report to be released today, the Chicago Tribune reports. The General Accounting Office, Congress’ investigative arm, points to several “systemic weaknesses” in the government’s anti-terrorism efforts “that increase the possibility of a suspected terrorist entering or remaining” inside the United States.

In all, 240 people had their visas revoked because of possible connections with terrorism between Sept. 11, 2001, and the end of last year.
