DHS Indigenous Languages Plan

DHS recognizes the importance of effective communication with persons who are limited English proficient (LEP) across its many missions and functions and is committed to meeting the requirements of Executive Order 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (August 11, 2000).

The DHS Indigenous Languages Plan is a vehicle for strengthening language services for Indigenous migrants who are encountered and served in DHS programs, activities, and operations, as migration levels in the U.S. from Guatemala and other countries with large Indigenous populations have increased significantly.
