In a major change in policy Homeland Security Secretary
Janet Napolitano announced that many illegal immigrants
who were facing deportation despite having no criminal
record would be allowed to stay in the country and apply
for a work permit under new rules from the department,
news media reported.
The focus would be on deporting illegal immigrants who
are criminals or pose a threat to national security or public
It was announced in a letter to a group of senators who
support revamping the immigration system. Under the
change, approximately 300,000 deportation cases pending
in immigration court will be reviewed case by case.
While the new policy does not provide illegal immigrants
with a path to permanent residency, it does allow those
whose cases are indefinitely stayed to apply for a work per-
mit. The government could also reopen deportation cases if
an immigrant is arrested or other circumstances in their
‘From a law enforcement and public safety perspective,
DHS enforcement resources must continue to be focused
on our highest priorities,’ Napolitano wrote in the letter.
‘Doing otherwise hinders our public safety mission – clog-
ging immigration court dockets and diverting DHS
enforcement resources away from individuals who pose a
threat to public safety.’
Napolitano said in her letter that the policy change was
part of implementing that prosecutorial discretion, accord-
ing to the reports.
Spanish-language version of E-Verify Self Check
‘Self Check equips workers with fast, secure access to
their employment eligibility information before they apply
for jobs,’ said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas. ‘By
offering Self Check to Spanish speakers and making the
service more widely available, USCIS makes good on a
promise to streamline and protect the integrity of the E-
Verify process for employees and employers alike.’
Self Check is the first online service offered directly to US
workers by E-Verify, a Department of Homeland Security
program administered by USCIS in partnership with the
Social Security Administration. Employers use the
Internet-based E-Verify service to determine employees’
eligibility to work in the United States through information

Blog post by Alejandro Mayorkas, director,
Every day, the dedicated men and women of the USCIS
ensure that deserving immigrants receive the benefits for
which they are eligible under our nation’s laws. They pro-
tect the integrity of our nation’s immigration system and
helps ensure the system is not abused by those who wish to
do our nation harm.
After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, USCIS was created as part
of a new national homeland security enterprise to confront
and defend against the evolving threats we face and to
make America more resilient when a crisis occurs. Its cre-
ation was premised upon the basic tenet that for our immi-
gration system to work, we must be able to protect our
Through USCIS’s enhanced efforts to protect national
security, USCIS can more effectively screen for security
threats while efficiently processing legitimate benefits for
people rightfully coming to the United States. To that end,
USCIS has taken and continues to take steps responsive to
the 9/11 Commission Report’s recommendations. In our
efforts, for example, to combat immigration fraud:
• We redesigned the Permanent Resident Card, common-
ly known as the Green Card, to include a radio frequency
identification tag that allows Customs and Border
Protection to quickly access the electronic records of trav-
elers seeking to enter the United States and includes new
security features that reduce the risks of counterfeiting,
tampering, and fraud.
• We redesigned the Certificate of Naturalization, utiliz-
ing a tamper-proof printing process and embedding digi-
tized photos and signatures.
• We added a machine-readable zone to the Employment
Authorization Document (EAD) to make it easier for bor-
der control officers to more efficiently identify people who
have already been approved for immigration benefits and
who have been reviewed previously by USCIS officers.
• We have enhanced our partnership with the Forensic
Document Laboratory which is dedicated exclusively to
detecting fraudulent documents. As a result, we can better
identify fake documents used to seek immigration benefits.
• We also have enhanced our sharing of information with
key federal partners:
Dozens of our Fraud Detection and National Security
(FDNS) officers are aligned with local FBI-led Joint
Terrorism Task Forces (JTFFs) to coordinate resources and
provide immigration expertise to federal government agen-
cies in support of terrorism investigations.
Our FDNS officers furnish support to the National
Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the FBI’s National Joint
Terrorism Task Force, the Terrorist Screening Center, and
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s National
We regularly exchange information with US-VISIT relat-
ed to refugee claimants under existing data-sharing agree-
ments with foreign-government partners.
Our efforts reflect our commitment to oversee lawful
immigration to the United States by strengthening the
security and integrity of our nation’s immigration system
while providing effective customer-oriented immigration
benefit and information services.
