The U.S. government accidentally granted citizenship to hundreds of people from "special interest countries" who had previously received deportation orders or had been removed under different names.
And, according to a new report, it's all because their fingerprints weren't on file.
A report from the Department of Homeland Security found more than 800 people's fingerprint records were missing from databases.
