In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/United States Citizenship and Immigration Services008 Refugee Access Verification Unit System of Records.'' This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to collect information to verify claimed relationships between anchor relatives in the United States and their overseas family members seeking access to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program under the Priority 3 Family Reunification Program. Eligible anchor relatives who were admitted to the United States as refugees or granted asylum in the United states may file an Affidavit of Relationship for qualifying overseas family members (spouses, unmarried children under age 21, and/or parents) to seek access to the U.S. Refugee Admission Program for their family members under Priority 3. USCIS is updating this system of records to include: (1) An updated system location; (2) updated categories of records; (3) updated routine uses; (4) a proposed retention schedule; (5) updated data elements used to retrieve records; and (6) updated sources of records. Additionally, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. This updated system will continue to be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
