Alien Registration Program Expands?

Tuesday, September 24, 2002
According to reports, commencing October 1, 2002, the program administered by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) that requires photographing and fingerprinting of nonimmigrant aliens will be expanded to include males between the ages of 16 and 45 from Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Pakistan. We have, as yet, been unable to confirm these reports. When the program of enhanced registration for certain foreign visitors commenced on September 11, it covered persons from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, and Libya. Crewmembers of foreign vessels making port calls in the United States are included in this program if they are nationals of the selected countries. Source: HK Law
