SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and as part of its Start Printed Page 41051ongoing integration and management efforts, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is removing a system of records currently being maintained by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and formerly maintained by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) when it was an agency of the Department of Justice. This legacy record system is entitled “Alien Status Verification Index (ASVI), JUSTICE/INS-009.” ASVI was last published in the Federal Register on September 7, 2001 (66 FR 46815). The system became part of the DHS inventory of record systems upon creation of DHS and the merger with INS.

ASVI was originally established in order to verify an alien's immigrant, nonimmigrant, and/or eligibility status for any purpose consistent with DHS/USCIS statutory responsibilities. The record system became obsolete in July 2004, because a new modernized system with the same capabilities as ASVI was built and added to another USCIS system of records, the Verification Information System (VIS), JUSTICE/INS-036 (last published in the Federal Register on October 17, 2002 (67 FR 64134)). All data from ASVI currently resides in VIS. Therefore, JUSTICE/INS-009, the “Alien Status Verification Index (ASVI)” has been superseded and the Department of Homeland Security is removing this system from its inventory of Privacy Act systems.
