DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

Office of the Secretary


Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY: Privacy Office, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of removal of a Privacy Act system of records notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of 
Homeland Security is giving notice that it proposes to consolidate the 
following Privacy Act system of records notice, Justice/INS-025 
Worksite Enforcement Activity Record and Index, October 17, 2002, into 
an existing Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement system of records notice, External Investigations Records, 
December 11, 2008.

DATES: Effective Date: February 12, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hugo Teufel III, Chief Privacy 
Officer, Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC 20528, by 
telephone (703) 235-0780 or facsimile 703-483-2999.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy 
Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and as part of its ongoing integration and 
management efforts, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is giving 
notice that it proposes to consolidate the following Privacy Act system 
of records notice, Justice/INS-025 Worksite Enforcement Activity Record 
and Index (67 FR 64136 October 17, 2002) into an existing DHS 
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) system of records, External 
Investigations Records, (73 FR 75452 December 11, 2008).
    DHS inherited this records system upon its creation in January of 
2003. Upon review of its inventory of record systems, DHS has 
determined that it should be consolidated into the existing DHS ICE 
External Investigation system of records.
    Justice/INS-025 Worksite Enforcement Activity Record and Index was 
originally established to administer and enforce the employment control 
provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act and related criminal 
statues. Additionally, the system was used to monitor and evaluate 
information contained on I-9 forms under inspection. The data collected 
by ICE pursuant to these activities are now covered by the External 
Investigations system of records.
    Consolidating this system of records notice will have no adverse 
impacts on individuals, but will promote the overall streamlining and 
management of DHS Privacy Act record systems.
