February 3, 2010. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) developed the Migrant Information Tracking System (MITS) to serve as a centralized repository for information relating to migrants interdicted at sea. MITS facilitates USCIS’ ability to record and track information pertaining to a migrant’s illicit maritime migration into the United States and respond to information requests regarding interdicted migrants from Members of Congress inquiring on behalf of a family member of the migrant. USCIS conducted this privacy impact assessment (PIA) because MITS collects, uses, and disseminates personally identifiable information (PII).
