I conveyed the gist of these comments to Dan Levin, who was agreeable to the

clarifications, so I think we are all on the same page. If we are unhappy with
what we get, we can always go back to the well or ask at interviews, and Levin
is happy to gives us names of people we should interview on these issues.

text.

INFORMATION: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has received


information indicating that individuals on the No Fly List associated with this SD could
pose a threat to civil aviation and national security.

There have been many instances where the name of a passenger is identical or similar to
an individual on the No Fly List. This SD provides revised guidance and direction
concerning use of the No Fly List and procedures aircraft operators are to follow to
resolve name conflicts. Affirming the incorrect identity of the individual can cause
unnecessary embarrassment and inability to board a flight. Additionally, this SD revises
procedures currently in place which prohibit aircraft operator employees whose names
appear on the No Fly List, access to restricted areas of airports.

REVISION SUMMARY:
• Revises procedures for verifying the identity of individuals whose names appear on
or are similar to names on the No Fly List
• Provides guidance and direction for the use of the No Fly List and procedures aircraft
operators are to follow to quickly resolve conflicts
• Revises procedures to restrict or prohibit access to restricted areas of an airport by
aircraft operator employees whose names appear on the No Fly List

names on the most recently issued No Fly List and those passengers checking in
for flights. Additionally, aircraft operators must also conduct a comparison
between names on each updated No Fly List and all direct aircraft operator
employees and those individuals to which the aircraft operator has issued SIDA
identification media, or is processing an application for SIDA identification media.

Many non-Western cultures do not follow strict patterns in name order. The names
that appear on the No Fly List may be in varying order and spelling. Data such as
date of birth, social security number, and passport number and country of issue,
will be provided by TSA when available. This data must be used during the flight
check-in process to assist in the determination of an individual's status as
outlined in Section III of this SD.

PASSENGERS
A. Check Prior to Arrival: When passenger reservation data is available in
advance of the arrival of a passenger for check-in, the aircraft operator must
conduct a comparison of its flight reservation system to the most current No
Fly List. During this process, if an aircraft operator matches a name and at
least one additional piece of identifying data on its flight reservation system
with the No Fly List, excluding a match of identifying data that appears in the
Remarks Section of the No Fly List, the aircraft operator must immediately
contact the following:
1. The nearest FBI Field Office, if the departing flight is within the
United States, or the United States legal attache at the nearest U.S.
Embassy or Consulate, if the departing flight is outside the United States.
2. The Transportation Security Intelligence (TSI) Watch at 202-267-3099.
3. The local Federal Security Director, if the departing flight is within the
United States, who will alert other aircraft operators at that airport of the
situation.

B. Clearance at Check-In (Within the United States): Upon arrival of a


passenger for check-in at an airport in the United States, the aircraft
operator must conduct a comparison between the names on the most
recently issued No Fly List and their flight reservation system. During this
process, if an aircraft operator matches a name and, if provided, at least one
additional piece of identifying data on its flight reservation system with a
name on the No Fly List, excluding a match of identifying data that appears
in the Remarks Section (if the passenger matches data in the Remarks
Section, see III. B. 4.), the aircraft operator must deny transportation to that
individual, their accessible property, checked baggage, and any other
individual(s) accompanying the passenger and their baggage unless cleared
by the following process:
1. Contact the appropriate local law enforcement officials and ensure the
responding Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) compares all available data

Re: 300B-HQ-C1184^d3-K, 06/09/2003

Synopsis: To advise of procedures established to provide consistent


application of names submitted by the FBI to the Transportation
Security Administration (TSA) No Fly and Selectee Lists.

Details: Background:

On October 15, 2001, the FAA issued Security Directives


(SB's) after receiving lists of individuals associated with Al-Qaeda
from both the CIA and the FBI. The SB's contained a list of persons
who were believed to pose a threat to civil aviation security. This
process was refined to a coordinated policy and protocol between the
FBI, CIA, and FAA (now the TSA) to identify persons who may pose a
threat to civil aviation security. Since late 2001, there have been
refinements -to the protocol in which persons are either placed on or
removed from either list. The TSA maintains the two lists and names
are submitted mostly by the CIA and the FBI, but also from the
Department of Homeland Security/Bureau of Immigration and Customs
.Enforcement, TSA, and on occasion, other agencies.

The TSA No Fly List and TSA Selectee List are not to be
confused with other watch lists, such as:

a. Terrorist Watch List (TWL),


b. National Crime Information Center Violent Gang and
Terrorist Organization File (VGTOF),
c. Department of State (TIPOFF System),
d. Consular Lookout and Support System (CLASS),
e. Bepartment of Homeland Security (formerly Treasury
Department) Treasury Enforcement Computer System (TECS),
f. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (formerly
United States Customs Service and Immigration and
Naturalization Service) Interagency Border Inspection
System (IBIS), and
g. National Automated Lookout System (NALS).
Definitions of each list

The persons on the TSA No Fly List are to be prevented from


using U.S. commercial aviation, since they have been deemed by the
TSA to be a threat to civil aviation security, based upon information
received from various sources. These individuals may not use
commercial aviation as long as their name appears on the TSA No Fly
List.

When a person on this list arrives at an airport and


attempts to fly, the airline is required to alert local law
enforcement. Local law enforcement authorities will be the primary
response to determine if the person at the airport matches the person
on the list. If there is a positive match, then the local law

To: All Field Of., j:es From: Counterterrori. I
Re: 300B-HQ-C1184203-K, 06/09/2003

enforcement authorities will contact the local FBI Field Office's


Airport Liaison Agent or Joint Terrorism Task Force. The FBI shall
then respond to the airport to conduct further investigation,
including identity checks, consensual interview, and notification to
FBIHQ. Such responses should be documented at the field division
level.
A detention is generally warranted for individuals with an
outstanding arrest warrant, or if investigation reveals the person is
on an operational terrorist mission.
The persons on the TSA Selectee List are not known to be a
threat to aviation, but an agency has said . they may have a possible
connection to terrorism or a terrorist organization. Passengers
determined to match the name on this list are subject to enhanced
pre-boarding security screening measures, and ultimately, are
permitted to travel on commercial aviation. The .airlines are also
required to notify both local and airport law enforcement and the
local FBI office. However, as long as individuals are subject to
enhanced screening, additional law enforcement review is not
required.
The backbone to the regulatory process for the civil
aviation industry is Security Directives, issued by the TSA (formerly
Federal Aviation Administration). Over the past twenty months, the
TSA has issued updated SD's that outline actions for airport
operators and airlines in regard to names appearing on either the TSA
No Fly List or TSA Selectee List.
In essence, the SB's advise airport operators to (1) check
applicants for airport ID card (e.g., SIDA badge) applicants names
against the TSA No Fly List and TSA Selectee List, and (2) outline
procedures for airlines to check passengers names and employees for
name matches from either list. Responses to positive name
identification may require FBI involvement for further identification
and interview after screening by local or airport law enforcement in
questionable cases of identity.
To control all names placed on and removed from both the TSA
No Fly List and TSA Selectee Lists by the FBI, a separate control
file (300B-HQ-C1184203-K), has been established for accountability
purposes in the Counterterrorism Division. This file number shall be
appropriately referenced in all documentation.
Procedures to add or remove a person for both lists:
' The Counterterrorism Division has developed the following
procedures to add a person to either the TSA No Fly List or TSA
/\e List. TSA has concurred with the following procedures:

1. A substantive terrorism case, such as a 265 and 199 or a


266, must be open on the subject. (Neither a Headquarters
nor Field Office's control file may be used for this
purpose.)
2. Submissions to either the TSA No-Fly List or the TSA
Selectee List must be done via an EC that is uploaded with
unrestricted text. The person's name and identifying
information must also be indexed in UNI. Submissions to
add or remove a person via an e-mail message or telephone
call will be denied.
3. The EC must include all of the following:
a. The substantive file number(s) and the control file number
(300B-HQ-C1184203-K);

b. Addressed to the following three units in t-h^


Counterterrorism Division at Headquarters:

(1) the appropriate FBIHQ operational unit;


(2) Terrorist Watch and Warning Unit, Room 11303; and
(3) Special Events Management Unit/Civil Aviation Security
Program, Room 11795.

c. The Synopsis section of the EC should state: "Request to


add [or remove] [Name] [DOB], a U.S. citizen [or US PER or
non-USPER] , to [or from] the TSA No Fly List [or TSA
Selectee List]." Example: Request to add John Q. Citizen,
DOB 03/15/1971, a U.S. citizen, to the TSA No Fly List.
d. The Details section of the EC must specify: (1) which of
the two lists (TSA No-Fly or TSA Selectee) the person
should be added or removed, (2) whether the person is an
USPER (citizen), USPER (non-citizen, such as a Permanent
Resident Alien or lawful non-immigrant visa status), or a
non-USPER, and (3) complete identifying information.
e. For all persons -- including non-citizen USPERs and non-
USPERs -- the EC must include a (1) full name, (2) gender,
and (3) a complete date of birth. Year of birth or
approximate age will not be sufficient. TSA will not add
a person to either list without these three pieces of
information.

other known identifiers, such as: known aliases, country of


origin, passport number, alien registration number,
address, Social Security Number, driver's license number,
physical description.
g. The Details section of the EC must describe: (1) the
person's known or suspected connections to terrorism or a
terrorist organization, and (2) the reasons to believe the
person poses a threat to civil aviation security.
h. The Details section of the EC must include a point-of-
contact who is thoroughly familiar with the case, such as
the case agent, co-case agent, and/or supervisor. The POC
should be available at all hours (24/7) in case questions
arise about the person placed on the list. Include direct-
dial work numbers, pager number, and cellular number for'
each POC.
i. The Leads section of the EC must include at least four
leads to the Counterterrorism Division:
(1) the operational unit's Unit Chief to review and
approve;
(2) the operational unit's SSA;
(3) Terrorism Watch and Warning Unit ("Read and clear"),
and ;
(4) Special Events Management Unit/Civil Aviation Security
Unit ("Read and clear").
Approval of request
4. Note that only a Unit Chief or higher in the Counterterrorism
Division at HQ may approve the inclusion (or deletion) of a
person onto either list. No one in any field office or Legal
Attache has approval authority.
a. Approval to add to the TSA No Fly List: If the Unit Chief
(or higher) approves the request to add a person, then
he/she will add the following statement: "The FBI considers
this person to be a threat to civil aviation security."
b. Approval to delete from the TSA No Fly List: If the Unit
Chief (or higher) approves the request to delete a person,
then he/she will add the following statement: "The FBI no

Chief (or higher) approves the request to add a person,
then he/she will add the following statement: "The FBI
believes this person may have a possible link to terrorism
and may be a threat to civil aviation security."
d. Approval to delete from the TSA Selectee List: If the Unit
Chief (or higher) approves the request to delete a person,
then he/she will add the following statement: "The FBI no
longer believes this person to be a threat to civil
aviation security."
5. If the Unit Chief or higher in the operational unit in the
Counterterrorism Division approves the addition to or removal
from either list, then it is the responsibility of the
operational unit to coordinate with the TSA's detailees on the-
FBI's National Joint Terrorism Task Force (NJTTF) for inclusion
or deletion.
The TSA's detailees to the NJTTF are currently Stuart O'Neil and
Jorge Dominguez. They will forward the approved request to TSA
from for placement (or removal) on the appropriate list.
Mandatory review of USPERs
6. If an USPER is added to either list, then the submittor of the
USPER is required to review whether the person should remain on
the list. This mandatory review will occur when the case is
closed and every 12 0 days after the date of the EC that
requested submission of that person to the list. Note that an
USPER can remain on the list even if the Field Office has closed
their investigative or intelligence case, as long as there is
justification to do so. The justification would have to be
articulated in an EC uploaded to the substantive and control
files, and it must include articulable facts that the person
continues to pose a threat to civil aviation security. Even if
the Field Office has closed the case, it is still required to
conduct a review and document the results every 120 days.
The results of the review -- that is, the reasons to maintain
the person on the list or the reasons to remove the person from
the list -- will be documented in an EC that is uploaded with
unrestricted text. The EC will be sent, as above, to the same
units in the Counterterrorism Division with the same leads,
described above.

case, or prior to the mandatory 120 day review, that the person
no longer poses a threat to civil aviation security, then an EC
should be submitted immediately to request deletion from the
list.
Distribution of the lists
The most current TSA No Fly List and TSA Selectee List are e-
mailed to all Airport Liaison Agents, Legats, and Joint Terrorism
Task Force members as soon as they are received from the TSA by the
Counterrorism Division, Special Events Management Unit/Civil Aviation
Security Program. Dissemination of these lists may occur as much as
twice daily. The points-of-contact in that unit are SSA Alexis
Smollok, (202) 324-0242, and IOS Brenda Jones: (202) 324-8693.
The lists are also posted on the FBI's Intranet, SIOC Operations,
TSA/FBI Support Page, which is located at: . '
http://30.5.100.249/opsupport/faasupport/
FBI response to an airport
If an FBI response is warranted, then full database checks and
other appropriate investigation should be conducted and documented.
The Terrorist Watch and Warning Unit is available 24/7 at (202) 324-
1220 as a resource to check ACS and NCIC on possible matches.
If FBI searches are negative, but it is determined the person is
a match, then the field agent should contact the TSA's 24-hour
command center at (202) 267-3099 for background information. TSA'-s
command center maintains documentation on all persons on both lists
provided to them by the FBI and all other agencies who contribute to
the lists. For these instances, it is recommended that responses to
positive name matches on the lists be maintained in the appropriate
airport liaison or civil aviation security file in the field
division.
For Legat response purposes, individuals appearing on the TSA No
Fly list may not utilize U.S. commercial aviation. Interview and
identification of the individual will rest within the appropriate
local law enforcement jurisdiction, at the request of the FBI. If the
individual uses a foreign-flag air carrier to attempt to enter the
U.S. and cannot be prevented from traveling, the FBI office at the
arriving city must be contacted for appropriate action as soon as
possible. For reference, it is the responsibility of the TSA to
include names appearing on the TSA No Fly List to also be entered in
TIPOFF and TECS.

In instances in which individuals are prevented from flying and


wish to voice their objection, the TSA, Office of the Ombudsman has

SUBJECT: Guidance Governing the S Nonimmigrant Visa

The purpose^trf-thts'mernorandum is to provide guidance on the processing and handling of


aliens who have applied for the S nonimmigrant visa via the sponsorship of the Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS) or other law enforcement agency.

Provisions and Conditions of the S Nonimmigrant Visa

As part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (Crime Bill, Public
Law No. 103-322), Congress established a standard procedure for allowing aliens into the
United States' who are needed to provide testimony or information to law enforcement agencies2

' In practice, the provision is commonly used to provide a lawful status to eligible aliens who are already in the United
States.

" The term law enforcement agencies (LEAs) include U.S. Attorney's Offices and Federal and State courts, as well as
Federal and State investigative agencies.

REQ 13-14 000000009


Memorandum for Regional Directors, et al. Page 2
Subject: Guidelines Governing the S Nonimmigrant Visa

(LEAs). The Crime Bill established section 101(a)(15)(S) of the Immigration and Nationality Act
(INA), which authorizes the admission of a limited number of alien witnesses and informants under
specified conditions. The provisions also authorize adjustment of status to permanent residence after
the satisfaction of certain conditions.

Under the regulations (8 CFR § 214.2(t) -copy of regulation attached) an alien may be
classified as an S-5 alien witness or informant under the provisions of INA § 101(a)(15)(S)(i), in the
exercise of discretion pursuant to an application on Form 1-854 Inter-Agency Alien Witness and
Informant Record (copy attached)"by an interested LEA, if it is determined by the Commissioner that
the alien: (i) possesses critical reliable information concerning a criminal organization; (ii) is willing to
supply or has supplied such information to a Federal or State LEA; and (iii) is essential to the success
of an authorized criminal investigation or the successful prosecution of an individual involved in the
criminal organization or enterprise. An alien may be classified as an S-6 alien counterterrorism
witness or informant under the provisions of INA § 101(a) (15)(S)(ii) if it is determined by the
Secretary of State and the Commissioner acting jointly, in the exercise of their discretion, pursuant to
an application on Form 1-854 by an interested Federal or State LEA, that the alien: (i) possesses critical
reliable information concerning a terrorist organization, enterprise, or operation; (ii) is willing to
supply or has supplied such information to a Federal LEA; (iii) is in danger or has been placed in
danger as a result of providing such information; and (iv) is eligible to receive a reward under section
36(a) of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 1956, 22 U.S.C. § 2708(a).

An alien spouse, married or unmarried son or daughter, or parent of an alien witness or


informant may be granted derivative S classification when accompanying, or following to join, the
alien witness or informant if, in the exercise of discretion by the Commissioner or the Secretary of
State and the Commissioner acting jointly, consider it to be appropriate.

The Crime Bill gives the Attorney General the discretion to waive most exclusion grounds3 for
an alien eligible for S status if the Attorney General determines that it is in the national interest to do
so.

According to INA § 214(k)(l) the number of aliens who may be provided a visa as
nonimmigrant under INA §101(a)(15)(S)(i) in any fiscal year may not exceed 200. The number of
aliens who may be provided a visa as nonimmigrants under INA § 101(a)(15)(S)(ii) in any fiscal year
may not exceed 50. The period of admission of an alien as such a nonimmigrant may not exceed 3
years. Such period may not be extended by the Attorney General. According to INA § 214(k)(4), as a
condition for the admission, and continued stay in lawful status, of such a nonimmigrant, the
nonimmigrant - (A) shall report not less often then quarterly to the Attorney General such information
concerning the alien's whereabouts and activities as the Attorney General may require; (B) may not be
convicted of any criminal offense punishable by a term of imprisonment of 1 year or more after date of
such admission; (C) must have executed a form that waives the nonimmigrant's right to contest, other

than on the basis of an application for withholding of deportation, any action for removal of the alien
instituted before the alien obtains lawful permanent resident status; and (D) shall abide by any other
condition, limitation, or restriction imposed by the Attorney General.

Application Process for the S Nonimmigrant Visa

An application for an S nonimmigrant visa may only be submitted by an LEA directly in need
of the information to be provided by the alien witness or informant. The Form 1-854 must be filed
directly with the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice
when the LEA is not the INS. When the INS is the sponsoring agency, the Form 1-854, with all
attachments and alien A-file, is to be forwarded directly from the district/sector office to the
Headquarters Office of Investigations (HQINV), via Federal Express. The package must contain a
memorandum addressed to the Assistant Commissioner for Investigations from the District Director or
Chief Patrol Agent that explains why the alien should be granted S nonimmigrant status. The Form
1-854 and its attachments will be reviewed by HQINV, and HQINV will determine if the alien meets
the requirements of the S nonimmigrant provision. Once that process is complete, HQINV will
forward the application to the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division with its
recommendation. The Criminal Division then forwards properly certified applications that fall within
the numerical limitation to the INS Commissioner for approval.

The requesting LEA must certify its needs for the alien witness or informant by providing
evidence establishing the nature of the alien's cooperation with the government, the need for the
alien's presence in the United States, any conduct or condition that may constitute a ground of
excludability, and any factors warranting a favorable exercise of discretionary waiver authority by the
Attorney General. (The Criminal Division has created a worksheet that is to be completed by the
sponsoring agency. This worksheet addresses each of the above elements. This worksheet is attached
and an electronic version can be requested from HQINV).

The Form 1-854 must be signed by the United States Attorney with jurisdiction over a
prosecution or investigation that forms the basis for a request for S nonimmigrant classification. The
United States Attorney must agree that no promise may be, has been, or will be made that the alien will
or may remain in the United States in S or any other nonimmigrant classification or parole, adjust
status to lawful permanent resident, or attempt to remain beyond the authorized period of admission.

Under the regulations, the Criminal Division reviews each application for completeness and
considers the negative and favorable factors warranting an exercise of discretion on the alien's behalf.
No request for S nonimmigrant classification may go to the INS without the Criminal Division's
certification. The INS Commissioner will make the final decision to approve or deny a request for S
nonimmigrant classification. If the INS approves the application, admission as a nonimmigrant will be
authorized for a period not to exceed three years. The regulation specifies that S nonimmigrants may
work in the United States.

REQ 13-14 ' 000000011

Memorandum for Regional Directors, et al. Page 4
Subject: Guidelines Governing the S Nonimmigrant Visa

Upon approval of the S nonimmigrant visa, it will be the responsibility of the controlling INS
agent, who submitted the application, to provide quarterly reports to HQINV. The HQINV will then
forward the reports to the Attorney General.

The S status itself does not authorize the alien to travel abroad. If a situation arises that
requires the alien to travel abroad, a request for advance parole must be made directly to HQINV, who
will then forward the request to the Headquarters Parole Office.

Requests for Employment Authorization

Several LEAs have called HQINV regarding problems obtaining employment authorization
documents (EADs) for their informants at the local INS offices because: 1) HQINV has possession of
the alien's A-file; and 2) there is no provision under 8 CFR § 274a. 12 to grant employment
authorization to an alien who has a pending S nonimmigrant visa. Pursuant to 8 CFR § 274a.l2(c)(21)
an BAD card can be issued to a principal alien and qualified dependent family members once the S
nonimmigrant visa has been approved.

Due to the length of time it is taking to process an S nonimmigrant visa application from its
arrival at the Criminal Division through the final approval of the INS Commissioner, and since an alien
with a pending S nonimmigrant visa cannot be physically removed from the United States, the
Assistant Commissioner for Investigations at HQINV will place these aliens in deferred action until a
decision is made regarding the pending S nonimmigrant visa (Action will be deferred by the
Assistant Commissioner for Investigations only on nondetained aliens). Aliens under deferred
action are eligible for an BAD card pursuant to 8 CFR § 274a. 12(c)(14).

PROCEDURE: District offices will continue processing BAD requests under current
procedures except for aliens who have an S nonimmigrant visa application pending at the
Criminal Division or at HQINV. For those cases, the sponsoring LEA will forward the Form 1-765,
Application for Employment Authorization, with fee and photographs, to his/her respective
Headquarters Point-of-Contact (POC). The LEA POC will forward the Form 1-765, with fee and
photographs, directly to HQINV. Once HQINV approves the Form 1-765, the BAD card will be
messenger mailed to the LEA's POC.

Requests by LEAs for Parole

Based on the authorities provided under 8 CFR § 212.14(a), parole can be granted under INA
§ 212(d)(5) for aliens whom LEAs seek to bring to the United States as witnesses or informants who
are applying for S classification. All such requests are to be submitted by the headquarters office of
the LEA directly to HQINV, who will then forward the request to the INS Headquarters Parole Office
after review and concurrence.

REQ 13-14 000000012

Memorandum for Regional Directors, et al. Page 5
Subject: Guidelines Governing the S Nonimmigrant Visa

All requests for advance parole for aliens who have an S nonimmigrant visa application
pending at the Criminal Division or at HQINV are to be submitted by the headquarters office of the
LEA directly to HQINV with a letter detailing the purpose for the advance parole request. Approval of
these requests are limited to "urgent humanitarian reasons or for operational purposes identified by the
LEA (significant public interest)." The HQINV will then forward the request to the INS headquarters
Parole office after review and concurrence.

Detained Aliens

If the alien is in custody and is being processed for removal, all attempts to obtain a final order
of removal should be made. However, the removal is deferred until such time as a decision is rendered
on the application. It is critical that contact with HQINV be maintained during this process. No alien
will be removed from the United States while an S nonimmigrant visa is pending at the Criminal
Division or at HQINV.

Adjustment of Status to Lawful Permanent Resident

If the Attorney General determines that an S nonimmigrant alien supplied the required
information and that the information contributed to the success of an investigation or prosecution of a
criminal enterprise, the alien may adjust status to permanent residence (INA § 245(j); 8 U.S.C. § 1255;
8 CFR § 245.11). The application for adjustment of status process is similar to the initial S
nonimmigrant visa application process. The LEA that made the original request must initiate the
request by filing another Form 1-854 with the Criminal Division (INS cases are to be forwarded
directly to HQINV). The Criminal Division reviews the information to determine whether to certify
the request to the INS Commissioner. The INS Commissioner makes the final decision whether to
allow the alien to apply for adjustment of status. If the Commissioner decides to permit the alien to
apply for adjustment of status, the alien then submits the Form 1-485 Application to Register
Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, with the appropriate fee and supporting documentation. Due to
the sensitive nature of these applications and because this program is controlled by HQINV, the
I-485s will be filed at HQINV. District Adjudication Officers, from INS district offices, will be
detailed to HQINV in order to adjudicate these cases or these cases can be adjudicated at the
Washington or Baltimore District Offices. NOTE: These applications must be received at HQINV
prior to expiration of the applicant's S nonimmigrant status. If the S nonimmigrant status expires
before the 1-854 and 1-485 have been received, the sponsoring agency must reapply for a new S
nonimmigrant visa in order to place the applicant back in S nonimmigrant status. It is recommended
that requests for adjustment of status be submitted two years after the alien has been granted S
nonimmigrant status.

After the alien adjusts status to lawful permanent resident, the INS may start removal
proceedings if the alien engages in removable conduct after adjusting status, or if the INS discovers
that the alien failed to disclose an excludable offense committed before adjusting status to that of a
permanent resident [INA § 212(d)(l); 8 U.S.C. § 1182(d)(l); 8 CFR § 212.4(i)(2)]..

THE NATIONAL JTTF

In the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the JTTFs became the primary
operational and investigative arms of the United States government in the war on terrorism, expanding
from 35 JTTFs to the present 56 JTTFs and 28 annexes. This rapid growth created new challenges of
organization and assimilation between multiple federal, state, and local government agencies and the
JTTF Program. In July 2002, Director Mueller authorized the formation of the National Joint Terrorism
Task Force (NJTTF) to address the complex information-sharing, coordination, and logistical issues
between the many intelligence, law enforcement, defense, diplomatic, public safety, and homeland
security agencies and the JTTF Program. The NJTTF is presently comprised of 38 OGAs collocated
in the Strategic Information and Operations Center (SIOC) at FBEHQ.

The mission of the NJTTF is to enhance communication, coordination, and cooperation


between federal, state, and local government agencies representing the intelligence, law enforcement,
defense/diplomatic, public safety, and homeland security community by providing a point of fusion for
terrorism intelligence and by acting as the "hub" of support for the JTTFs throughout the United States.
The NJTTF accomplishes its mission by attaining the following goals:

Operating a multi agency task force at FBJUQ consisting of personnel from the intelligence, law
enforcement, defense, diplomatic, public safety, and homeland security community which serves
as a "point of fusion" for multi agency collaboration and effective sharing of terrorism intelligence
between the participating agencies nationwide.

Coordinating topical terrorism projects involving all JTTFs by collecting, correlating, and fusing
terrorism information at FBEHQ for dissemination to CT substantive units, JTTFs, and other
government agencies.

• Providing administrative, logistical, financial, and training support and guidance to all JTTFs.

Establishing and maintaining a "one-stop shopping" location for the intelligence, law
enforcement, defense, diplomatic, public service, and homeland security community at the
FBI's SIOC, which is readily available to SIOC commanders during crisis situations.

Presently, there are a total of 57 individuals assigned to the NJTTF which include 14 FBI
employees and 43 representatives from OGAs. The participating agencies in the NJTTF include:

Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives


Bureau of Customs and Border Protection-DHS
Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement-DHS
Central Intelligence Agency
Defense HUMINT Services
Defense Intelligence Agency
Defense Criminal Investigative Service

Like all JTTFs, the NJTTF derives strength from the combination of experience, diversity of
mission, and access to the databases each participating agency brings to the table. The NJTTF,
however, provides an unprecedented collaborative effort combining the resources from these agencies,
into one task force. All NJTTF members are provided FBI Intranet and database access for CT
investigations and related case files and, in turn, bring with them access to their respective databases,
which facilitates an accelerated information-sharing capability to all NJTTF members. NJTTF
members interact, on a daily basis, with the CT Operational Units at FBIHQ, JTTF members in the
field, as well as with their own agencies. Many of the NJTTF member agencies also have
representatives on local JTTFs and serve as a conduit for sharing of terrorism information between the
NJTTF and their counterparts at the JTTFs.

MISC. REQ. #37 000003617


The NJTTF has coordinated with the Office of the FBI Executive Assistant Director for Law
Enforcement Coordination to create fellowships for state and local law enforcement personnel. These
fellowships allow officers to join the NJTTF for a temporary appointment. These officers obtain first
hand knowledge of the day-to-day operations of the NJTTF, CT Watch, and operational International
and Domestic Terrorism Units at FBI Headquarters. These officers assist the FBI and the NJTTF in
identifying methods to enhance information sharing between all levels of law enforcement. The Kansas
City, Mo Police Department as well as San Jose,Ca Police Department have assigned officers to the
NJTTF.

The NJTTF maintains critical liaison with the national headquarters of its participating agencies
as well as with the Department of Justice Anti-Terrorism Advisory Committee (ATAC) Program.

MISC. REQ. #37 000003618


THE JTTF PROGRAM

The task force concept was initially utilized by the FBI in New York City in 1979 to address a
significant and overwhelming bank robbery crime problem which was victimizing the New York
financial community. The implementation of the task force concept proved to be a valuable
investigative tool, and w'as subsequently applied to the FBI's Counterterrorism (CT) Program. In May
1980, the first JTTF was established in the New York Field Office in response to an increased number
of terrorist bombings. In the beginning of 1996, a total of 11 JTTFs existed in the FBI CT Program.
By this time, it was clear to the FBI that the establishment of JTTFs enhanced interagency cooperation,
coordination, and communication and created cohesive units capable of addressing a wide variety of
terrorism matters.

The establishment of the JTTF Program has enhanced the FBI's ability to promote a
coordinated counterterrorism effort among FBI field offices and their respective counterparts in federal,
state, and local law enforcement agencies. From 1996 to 2000 the JTTF Program grew from 11 to 29.
In fiscal year 2001, Congress provided a $2 million enhancement to strengthen and further expand the
JTTF program. With a base of $5.2 million, 6 new task forces were established, for a total of 35 task
forces at the end of fiscal year 2001. In fiscal year 2002, $15.7 million of the Congressional
Supplemental facilitated providing JTTF coverage in all 56 FBI field offices. In fiscal year 2003, with a
new base of $5.9 million, Congress provided an additional $20 million. These funds have been used to
strengthen and expand operations in the existing JTTFs.

The following depicts the growth of the JTTF Program from September 11, 2001, to the present:

JTTFs added by fiscal year since October 1998:

JTTF RESIDENT AGENCY ANNEXES

The terrorist attacks of September 11,2001, the anthrax, attacks, and the directives issued by the
Attorney General of the United States (AG) regarding Anti Terrorism TaskForces (ATTFs) have inspired
unprecedented interest by federal, state and local agencies to become full-time members in the 56 JTTFs,
as well as in outlying FBI resident agency (RA) locations. The RA locations are known as Annexes, which
are branches of the established field office JTTFs. During FY 2002,10 JTTF Annexes were approved,
bringing the total number of JTTFs, including Annexes, to 66.

On June 30,2003, the FBI approved the establishment of an additional 18 Annexes, bringing the
total numberof Field Office JTTFs and Annexes to 84. For command and control purposes, theFBIRA
Annex locations are supervised locally by FBI Supervisory Senior Resident Agents (SSR As), who are
subordinate to the Special Agents in Charge or Assistant Directors in Charge of their respective field
offices. Listed below are the locations of the current 28 resident agency Annexes:

• The FBI anticipates that the level of federal, state and local participation in the JTTF Program
will continue to grow during fiscal year 2004, which will result in the need for increases in the allocation
of resources to reimburse state and local agencies for overtime costs and to fund rent and renovation
costs required in connection with the establishment or expansion of new off-site facilities. Task force
costs are categorized in two ways, overt and covert. Covert funding supports the operations of task
forces while overt funding is used for the necessary administrative support.

All requests for expanded JTTFs and the establishment of annexes within the respective division
are reviewed and coordinated by FBI Headquarters. Coordination requires extensive efforts to ensure
each JTTF has the tools and training adequate for it to complete its mission. This coordination and
review ensure that only the most critical expenses and start-up costs are incurred. While the creation
and maintenance of JTTFs involve a costly investment of non personnel resources, this initiative realizes
qualitative and quantitative benefits in the form of improvements to interagency coordination and
cooperation and the sharing of information in CT investigations.

There are approximately 3,350 full-time JTTF members nationwide which include 1,793 FBI
Special Agents, 811 state and local officers, and 746 members of other government agencies (OGAs).

Federal participants in the JTTF Program include the Immigration and Naturalization Service
(BICE); U.S. Secret Service; U.S. Department of Commerce; U.S. Department of Energy; U.S.
Transportation Security Administration; Central Intelligence Agency; U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency; Naval Criminal Investigative Service; U.S. Marshals Service; U.S. Customs Service (BCBP);
U.S. Coast Guard; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; U.S. Border Patrol; U.S.
Department of State/Diplomatic Security Service; Postal Inspection Service; Internal Revenue Service;
Federal Protective Service; Department of Interior's Bureau of Land Management; U.S. Nuclear
Regulatory Commission; U.S. Capitol Police; Federal Bureau of Prisons; Air Force Office of Special
Investigations; U.S. Park Police; Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration; and the Defense
Criminal Investigative Service.

The JTTFs have played a critical role in many significant terrorism investigations. Examples of
JTTF accomplishments include the conviction of Ramzi Yousef and Eyad Mahmoud Ismail for
conspiracy in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the prevention of several acts of
terrorism by members of the True Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in Wise County, Texas, in April, 1997;
the July 2000 arrest of 17 individuals in Charlotte, Concord, and Lexington, North Carolina, which
resulted in the dismantling of a Hizballah cell. Additional examples include the Buffalo JTTFs '
September 2002 arrest of six U.S. citizens for attending an Al-Qaeda/Usama Bin Laden (UBL) -
sponsored training camp in Afghanistan during Spring-Summer 2001. In October 2002, the Portland,
Oregon JTTF arrested six individuals who have been charged with conspiracy to wage war with the
United States and providing material support to Al-Qaeda and the Taliban. In December 2002, the
North Texas JTTF from the Dallas FBI Field Office indicted five brothers, officers of INFOCOM, a
computer company closely linked to the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLFRD).
The HLFRD was shut down in December 2001 as a specially designated terrorist for its links with
HAMAS. These investigations would not have been successful without the interagency formation of

MISC. REQ. #37 000003622


JTTFs in the field.

JTTFs are routinely utilized to coordinate the FBI's security preparations for virtually all major
special events in the United States. Examples include the 2000 Presidential Nominating Conventions in
Los Angeles, California, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City,
Utah; and, recently, the 2003 NCAA Division I Basketball and Hockey Tournaments.

Recently, the JTTFs played a critical role by assisting in the interview of over 10,000 Iraqis
during the FBI's Iraqi Phase n project.

members and thirty three (33) passengers have been identified by DNA. Four (4) sets of unknown
human remains have not been identified. Next of kin for Ziad Jarrah, Saeed Al-Ghamdi, Ahmed Al-
Nami and Ahmed Al-Haznawi have not provided DNA samples for comparison.

The Bundeskriminalamt (BKA - German Federal Police) provided DNA profiles obtained from search
warrants conducted on Ziad Jarrah's girlfriend (Aysel Sengun) residence. The FBI Laboratory
compared the DNA profiles provided by the BKA, with DNA profiles from the four sets of unknown
human remains recovered at the crash site of UAL Flight 93.

The DNA profiles provided by the BKA matched the sample of one of the sets of unknown human
remains. (ACS 315N-NY-280350-OUT, Serial 4417.)

American Airlines Flight 77 had a crew of six (6) and fifty eight passengers (58), including the five (5)
hijackers. Remains of all six (6) crew members and fifty two (52) passengers were recovered from the
Pentagon crash site and positively identified (the 53rd passenger was a child and no remains were
recovered.) Five sets of recovered human remains have not been identified and do not match reference
DNA profiles of any of the victims. Two (2) sets of these unidentified human remains were determined
to be biologically related. Next of kin for Hani Hanjour, Khalid Al-Mihdhar, Majed Moqed, Nawaf Al-
Hazmi and Salem Al-Hazmi have not provided DNA samples for comparison.

The total number of victims at the World Trade Center stands at 2749. This number is comprised of:
