Homeland Security To Establish Mirror Database With Privacy Exception

Sep 14, 2010 by

If I hear one more ‘conservative’ talking head state that Bush 43 kept us safe after 9.11, or that 19 hijackers took down the twin towers all by themselves, I think I will absolutely lose my mind from the lowing of the moos in the field.

No 9.11; no Patriot Act with accompanying anthrax scare; no Department of Homeland Security to create a mirror database of personal information and then take an exemption from the 1974 Privacy Act.  Who needs a national ID card when DHS has the mirror database, The Fed has all your financial records, and Obamacare has everything else including your bank account information to draw funds electronically for medical care?

Now, given that DHS hasn’t secured the border, people who read the Constitution have been labeled as possible domestic terrorists, and the FBI considers the ‘sovereign’ movement to be domestic terrorists, do we watchdogs of the republic still look insane or are you feeling us yet?

DHS to develop single, searchable database of immigration records

Proposed Rules Federal Register, 54528, Vol. 75, No. 173, Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Here is the notice from the US Government Printing Office

75 FR 54642 – Privacy Act of 1974; United States Citizenship and Immigration Services-012 Citizenship and Immigration Data Repository System of Records

Summary In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to establish a new Department of Homeland Security system of records notice titled, “DHS U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 012 Citizenship and Immigration Data Repository System of Records.” Citizenship and Immigration Data Repository is a mirror copy of USCIS’s major immigrant and non-immigrant benefits databases combined into a single user interface and presented in an updated, searchable format on the classified network. This system takes existing USCIS data and recompiles them into a system for the following three purposes: (1) Vetting USCIS application information for indications of possible immigration fraud and national security concerns, (2) detecting possible fraud and misuse of immigration information or position by USCIS employees, for personal gain or by coercion, and (3) to respond to requests for information (RFIs) from the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) and/or the Federal intelligence and law enforcement community members that are based on classified criteria. The Department of Homeland Security is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concurrent with this system of records elsewhere in the Federal Register because certain information in the system may be classified or relevant to a law enforcement investigation. This newly established system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security’s inventory of record systems.
