Homeland security official defends handling of Las Vegas visas

A top Department of Homeland Security official on Thursday defended his handling of visa applications for overseas investors in the SLS Las Vegas resort, saying he was only doing his job, “nothing more or nothing less.”

The department inspector general concluded in March that Alejandro Mayorkas in late 2012 improperly intervened to fast track consideration of “EB-5” visas for backers of the $415 million Strip project after being pressured by U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.
