Practice Note
 
ALIEN STUDENTS WHO DO NOT ATTEND SCHOOL WILL BE PLACED IN CRIMINAL DATABASE

 

According to Washington Post (Dec. 17, 2003), the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the main criminal fugitive database for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), is being expanded to add approximately 140,000 noncriminal undocumented aliens who have been removed from the U.S., as well as the names of foreign students who do not go to class or who commit other immigration-related violations.

 

After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the U.S. government has tightened up the  Immigration policies in various respects to ensure the homeland security, the newly expanded criminal database is observed to be one of their moves. Although a group of civil rights and immigration defense organization have filed a complain in the U.S. district Court, claiming that the government has been entering into the NCIC database, without authority, thus undermine public safety, the case however will not have significant result anytime soon.

 

Including foreign students who do not attend school into criminal data base, nevertheless, is expected to have a significant implication for millions of alien students in the U.S. First of all, enabling law enforcement to access this information leaves a large room for the misusing and manipulation of immigration information, secondly, and more importantly, the unfavorably treated information will negatively affect other immigration proceedings such as green card applications later on. Therefore, we urge foreign students who have missed school or have violated other immigration policies take it seriously and take corrective steps to address the problem. If course dropped to less than 12 credit hours a semester, foreign students should file reinstatement of status to put self back to good status. If readers have any questions, please contact us.
