Overview of This Information Collection Title: Collection of Advance Information from Certain Undocumented Individuals on the Land Border. OMB Number: 1651–0140. Form Number: N/A. Current Actions: Revision. Type of Review: Revision. Affected Public: Individuals. Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in consultation with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), has established a process to streamline the processing of undocumented noncitizens under Title 8 of the United States Code at certain ports of entry (POEs), as these individuals require secondary processing upon their arrival, which takes longer than when individuals arrive with sufficient travel documentation. CBP is proposing extending and amending this data collection, which was established on an emergency basis on May 3, 2021. This data collection expands on the previous collection process for persons who may warrant an exception to the CDC’s Order Suspending the Right To Introduce Certain Persons from Countries Where a Quarantinable Communicable Disease Exists (‘‘CDC Order’’) (85 FR 65806), to include undocumented noncitizens who E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1 53668 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 28, 2021 / Notices will be processed under Title 8 at the time they arrive at the POE after the CDC Order is rescinded, in whole or in part. The purpose is to continue to achieve efficiencies to process undocumented noncitizens under Title 8 upon their arrival at the POE, consistent with public health protocols, space limitations, and other restrictions. 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 nongovernmental 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.’’ Proposed Changes: This information collection is being changed to require the submission of the photograph— previously optional—for all who choose VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 Sep 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 to provide advance information. The submission of a photograph in advance will provide CBPOs with a mechanism to match a noncitizen who arrives at the POE with the photograph submitted in advance, therefore identifying those individuals, and verifying their identity. The photograph is particularly important for identity verification once NGOs/IOs are no longer facilitating the presentation of all individuals for CBP processing (NGOs/IOs will be able to continue assisting for some individuals but others will be able to participate on their own). CBP will also allow individuals to request to present themselves for processing at a specific POE on a specific day and time, although such a request does not guarantee that an individual will be processed at a given time. Individuals will have the opportunity to modify their requests within the CBP OneTM application to an alternate day or time. In all cases, CBP will inspect, and process individuals based on available capacity at the POE. This new functionality does not require the collection of new Personal Identifiable Information (PII) data elements. Type of Information Collection: Advance Information on Undocumented Travelers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 91,250. Estimated Number of Annual Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 91,250. Estimated Time per Response: 16 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 24,333. Dated: September 23, 2021. Seth D. Renkema, Branch Chief, Economic Impact Analysis Branch, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Overview of This Information Collection

    Title: Collection of Advance Information from Certain Undocumented 
Individuals on the Land Border.
    OMB Number: 1651-0140.
    Form Number: N/A.
    Current Actions: Revision.
    Type of Review: Revision.
    Affected Public: Individuals.
    Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in 
consultation with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), has 
established a process to streamline the processing of undocumented 
noncitizens under Title 8 of the United States Code at certain ports of 
entry (POEs), as these individuals require secondary processing upon 
their arrival, which takes longer than when individuals arrive with 
sufficient travel documentation.
    CBP is proposing extending and amending this data collection, which 
was established on an emergency basis on May 3, 2021. This data 
collection expands on the previous collection process for persons who 
may warrant an exception to the CDC's Order Suspending the Right To 
Introduce Certain Persons from Countries Where a Quarantinable 
Communicable Disease Exists (``CDC Order'') (85 FR 65806), to include 
undocumented noncitizens who

[[Page 53668]]

will be processed under Title 8 at the time they arrive at the POE 
after the CDC Order is rescinded, in whole or in part. The purpose is 
to continue to achieve efficiencies to process undocumented noncitizens 
under Title 8 upon their arrival at the POE, consistent with public 
health protocols, space limitations, and other restrictions.
    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

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.''
    Proposed Changes: This information collection is being changed to 
require the submission of the photograph--previously optional--for all 
who choose to provide advance information. The submission of a 
photograph in advance will provide CBPOs with a mechanism to match a 
noncitizen who arrives at the POE with the photograph submitted in 
advance, therefore identifying those individuals, and verifying their 
identity. The photograph is particularly important for identity 
verification once NGOs/IOs are no longer facilitating the presentation 
of all individuals for CBP processing (NGOs/IOs will be able to 
continue assisting for some individuals but others will be able to 
participate on their own).
    CBP will also allow individuals to request to present themselves 
for processing at a specific POE on a specific day and time, although 
such a request does not guarantee that an individual will be processed 
at a given time. Individuals will have the opportunity to modify their

time. In all cases, CBP will inspect, and process individuals based on 
available capacity at the POE. This new functionality does not require
