The NSEERS (National Security Entry Exit Registration System) has been ended by the Obama Regime. The NSEERS system was designed to not only track the entry and exit of aliens from terrorist supporting countries, but also gather intelligence from those aliens as to their various activities that support terrorist groups. The benefit of the detailed inspection of each of the aliens that is that large amounts of intelligence was generated. However, the Obama Regime was not interested in such intelligence as it reflected badly on Muslims and Muslim regimes.
SUMMARY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is eliminating redundant programs by removing the following countries from, and relieving nonimmigrant nationals or citizens of the following countries from compliance with, the special registration procedures under the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS): Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. Over the past six years, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has implemented several new automated systems that capture arrival and exit information on nonimmigrant travelers to the United States, and DHS has determined that recapturing this data manually when a nonimmigrant is seeking admission to the United States is redundant and no longer provides any increase in security. DHS, therefore, has determined that it is no longer necessary to subject nationals from these countries to special registration procedures, and this notice deletes all currently designated countries from NSEERS compliance.
The main complaint is the labor intensive nature of detailed inspection of these alien threats to the United States and the costs of such inspections.
As many of you know, NSEERS was first implemented in 2002 as a temporary measure in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and was designed to record the arrival, stay, and departure of certain individuals from countries chosen based on an analysis of possible national security threats. The NSEERS registration required approximately 30 minutes in secondary inspection, per person, per arrival; and NSEERS registrants were also required to register upon departure at one of the 118 designated ports of departure, limiting travel flexibility.
The major source of intelligence information was Iranian nationals, who despite the fact that the Iranian Regime is at war with the United States, is major source of immigration, both legal and illegal, as well as perpetrators of systematic immigration fraud and major perpetrators of sanctions busting trade and the illegal acquisition of military technology for Iran and its major sponsors, such as China.
Of course, nothing from DHS related to immigration is complete without the assorted lies that there is no problem and technology is solving everything:
Since NSEERS was created, DHS has implemented several automated systems that capture arrival and/or exit information, making the manual entry of this data via the NSEERS registration process redundant, inefficient and unnecessary. The improved and expanded DHS and Department of State systems capture the same information for visitors, regardless of nationality.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
First, automated entry systems exist, but only collect information provided by the alien's documents and ticketing. It does not provide information from a search of the alien and his personal effects. Nor does it provide any evidence supporting any claim by the alien, such as the nature and details of his travel. Basically, the automated entry system only provides information that the alien wants to provide. What is of more import is the information that the alien does not want to provide or lies about. One gets nothing of that from the automated entry system.
Second, the exit part of the automated "entry/exit" systems does not exist. Ten years after DHS was required to implement an automated system, it still has not developed said system. It relies exclusively on airline provided passenger lists of departing flights and airline collected Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record. However, those two methods are inadequate and do not fully identify departing aliens, especially not illegal aliens, or those aliens who have penetrated airline security by bribery or ethnic sympathy. If illegal aliens can freely depart via airline with no consequences or being identified, of what use is the system in tracking aliens from terrorist supporting countries and their trained terrorist and intelligence operatives.
Worse yet, there is no system for recording anything regarding aliens who depart by vessels, private aircraft, or by land borders. There is no control over those aliens who don't depart by scheduled airlines.
