Privacy Act of 1974: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE Pattern Analysis and Information Collection (ICEPIC) System of Records
Document Number: E8-19031
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-08-18
Agency: Office of the Secretary, Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is re- publishing the system of records notice (SORN) for the ICE Pattern Analysis and Information Collection (ICEPIC) system to address comments received through the Federal Register comment procedure. A minor change has been made to the SORN to update the contact point for individual requests for access to and amendment of records in the system and to propose a new routine use for investigation and remediation of any loss or compromise of personal data from the system, should such a loss or compromise occur. On January 30, 2008, ICE originally established this system of records and published the SORN and associated proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register, 73 FR 5577 and 73 FR 5460 (Jan. 30, 2008). ICE received and considered the public comments, all of which were generally in favor of the system and the proposed rule. In light of the comments received, ICE concluded that no changes to the SORN are warranted at this time other than the proposed addition of a new routine use and to update the contact point for requests to access and correct system records. A final rulemaking is also published in this issue of the Federal Register in which the Department exempts portions of this system of records from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement requirements.

Extension of the Designation of Sudan for Temporary Protected Status; Automatic Extension of Employment Authorization Documentation for Sudanese TPS Beneficiaries
Document Number: E8-18826
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-08-14
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
This Notice announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security has extended the designation of Sudan for temporary protected status (TPS) for 18 months, from its current expiration date of November 2, 2008 through May 2, 2010. This Notice also sets forth procedures necessary for nationals of Sudan (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sudan) with TPS to re-register with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and to apply for an extension of their employment authorization documents (EADs) for the additional 18-month period. Re-registration is limited to persons who have previously registered for TPS under the designation of Sudan and whose applications have been granted or remain pending. Certain nationals of Sudan (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sudan) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognizes the possibility that all re-registrants may not receive new EADs until after their current EADs expire on November 2, 2008. Accordingly, this Notice automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Sudan for six months, through May 2, 2009, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended. USCIS will issue new EADs with the May 2, 2010 expiration date to eligible TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs.
