CBP collects certain biographic and biometric information from undocumented noncitizens prior to their arrival at a POE, to streamline their processing at the POE. The requested information is that which CBP would otherwise collect from these individuals during primary and/or secondary processing. This information is voluntarily provided by undocumented noncitizens, directly or through non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and international organizations (IOs). Providing this information is not a prerequisite for processing under Title 8, but reduces the amount of data entered by CBP Officers (CBPOs) and the length of time an undocumented noncitizen remains in CBP custody. The biographic and biometric information being collected in advance, that would otherwise be collected during primary and/or secondary processing at the POEs includes, but is not limited to, descriptive information such as: Name, Data of birth, Country of Birth, City of Birth, Country of Residence, Contact Information, Addresses, Nationality, Employment history (optional), Travel history, Emergency Contact (optional), U.S. and foreign addresses, Familial Information (optional), Marital Status (optional), Identity Document (not a WHTI compliant document) (optional), Gender, Preferred Language, Height, Weight, Eye color and Photograph. This information is submitted to CBP by undocumented noncitizens on a voluntary basis, for the purpose of facilitating and implementing CBP’s mission. This collection is consistent with DHS’ and CBP’s authorities, including under 6 U.S.C. §§ 202 and 211(c). Pursuant to these sections, DHS and CBP are generally charged with “[s]ecuring the borders, territorial waters, ports, terminals, waterways, and air, land, and sea transportation systems of the United States,” and “implement[ing] screening and targeting capabilities, including the screening, reviewing, identifying, and prioritizing of passengers and cargo across all international modes of transportation, both inbound and outbound.”
