Improvements Needed for SAVE To Accurately Determine Immigration Status of Individuals Ordered Deported (Revised)

Executive Summary

We audited the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program to determine the accuracy of nformation used to validate an applicant’s immigration status when the applicant had been ordered deported. Our objectives were (1) to assess whether the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program uses accurate and up-to-date information to validate immigration status of deportable, removable, and excludable individuals, and (2) if Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements is not using accurate information, to determine the rate of error with respect to verification of these individuals’ status.
