Southwest Border Coordination Center and Migration Information Center Resource Guide


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is leading a whole-of-government effort to ensure the safe, orderly, and humane management of our nation’s borders and a full return to enforcement of U.S. immigration laws under Title 8. Our comprehensive, multi-agency, multi-country plan includes new sweeping measures to reduce irregular migration, combining expanded lawful pathways with tougher consequences for those who choose not to use them.

The Southwest Border Coordination Center (SBCC) leads planning and coordination for managing the safe and orderly processing of noncitizens encountered along the Southwest Border. The DHS Plan for Southwest Border Security and Preparedness calls for bolstering the capacity of our partners to receive screened and vetted noncitizens released from DHS custody while their immigration proceedings are pending. The SBCC Migration Information Center (SBCC-MIC) is coordinating our partnership efforts.

This Resource Guide for partners includes information about DHS processes and lawful immigration pathways, and shareable content on the U.S. immigration system.

For additional information, please go to DHS.gov/immigrationlaws or contact SBCC-MIC@cbp.dhs.gov.
