Extension of the Designation of El Salvador for Temporary Protected Status
Document Number: 2013-12793
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-05-30
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Through this Notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) is extending the designation of El Salvador for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months from September 10, 2013 through March 9, 2015. The extension allows currently eligible TPS beneficiaries to retain TPS through March 9, 2015 so long as they otherwise continue to meet the terms and conditions of TPS status. The Secretary has determined that an extension is warranted because the conditions in El Salvador that prompted the TPS designation continue to be met. There continues to be a substantial, but temporary, disruption of living conditions in El Salvador resulting from a series of earthquakes in 2001, and El Salvador remains unable, temporarily, to handle adequately the return of its nationals. Through this Notice, DHS also sets forth procedures necessary for nationals of El Salvador (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in El Salvador) to re-register for TPS and to apply for renewal of their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Re-registration is limited to persons who have previously registered for TPS under the designation of El Salvador and whose applications have been granted. Certain nationals of El Salvador (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in El Salvador) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions, if they meet: (1) At least one of the late initial filing criteria and (2) all TPS eligibility criteria (including continuous residence in the United States since February 13, 2001, and continuous physical presence in the United States since March 9, 2001). For individuals who have already been granted TPS under the El Salvador designation, the 60-day re-registration period runs from May 30, 2013 through July 29, 2013. USCIS will issue new EADs with a March 9, 2015 expiration date to eligible Salvadoran TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs under this extension. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, DHS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on September 9, 2013. Accordingly, through this Notice, DHS automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of El Salvador for 6 months, from September 9, 2013 through March 9, 2014, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended and their impact on Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and the E-Verify processes.

Type: Notice
Date: 2013-05-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection-007Border Crossing Information System of Records.''

This border crossing information includes certain biographical information; a photograph; certain itinerary information mandated or provided on a voluntary basis by air, sea, bus, and rail carriers or any other forms of passenger transportation; and the time and location of the border crossing. This system of records notice was previously published in the Federal Register on July 25, 2008 (73 FR 43457). A Final Rule exempting portions of this system from certain provisions of the Privacy Act was published on February 3, 2010 (75 FR 5491). As part of DHS's ongoing effort to increase transparency regarding its collection of information, DHS/CBP is updating (1) the categories of individuals to include persons entering Canada from the United States, (2) the categories of records to include border crossing data from Canada, (3) the sources of information to include data provided by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), and (4) the routine uses to include the sharing of border crossing information with Canada. Additional routine uses were edited for clarity and for ease of use and understanding. In addition, DHS/CBP made non-substantive edits to the exemptions to ensure clarity.
