The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognizes the importance of being able to communicate effectively with individuals, including those with limited English proficiency (LEP), across our many missions and functions. The DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) leads the Department's efforts to provide meaningful access for LEP individuals in its programs, activities, and services. CRCL identifies and translates documents that contain information particularly important to diverse LEP communities. These documents are often translated in multiple languages; including Arabic, Chinese, French, Haitian-Creole, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
