Immigration & Border Control

On March 1, 2003, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officially assumed responsibility for immigration services and border control functions of the Federal government. The Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Pub. L. No. 107–296, 116 Stat. 2135) dissolved the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and reorganized the former agency into three components within DHS. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services handles immigration services, focusing on the administration of applications. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, handle immigration enforcement and border security functions. Other agencies with responsibilities related to visas and the legal status of immigrants, such as the Departments of Justice, State, and Labor are included in this search.
