DHS/ALL/PIA-041 One DHS Overstay Vetting Pilot

DHS is conducting the One DHS Overstay Vetting Pilot to improve DHS' ability to identify and vet foreign nationals who have remained in the United States beyond their authorized period of admission (overstays). The pilot will attempt to streamline data sharing between the National Protection and Programs Directorate's United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) Program, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The overstay vetting process is covered by existing PIAs for the CBP Automated Targeting System (ATS), US-VISIT Technical Reconciliation Analysis Classification System (TRACS), and US-VISIT Arrival Departure Information System (ADIS). In addition to this existing coverage, US-VISIT has worked with the DHS Privacy Office to complete this PIA specific to the Overstay Vetting Pilot to add another layer of analysis and transparency to this specific process which can be updated as the program matures. Data sharing conducted through this program allows DHS to better identify which individuals have overstayed their authorized periods of admission, and of those overstays, which are the highest law enforcement or national security priority for enforcement action by ICE. DHS is conducting this PIA because the pilot increases the sharing within DHS of PII about travelers.
