Following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the federal government's need to locate aliens in the U.S. was considerably heightened. Without reliable alien address information, the government is impeded in its ability to find aliens who represent a national security threat or who could help with the nation's anti-terrorism efforts. Requesters from both the Senate & House asked the General Accounting Office (GAO) to review the reliability of the Immigration & Naturalization Service's (INS) alien address information & identify the ways it could be improved.
