Department of Homeland Security Fact Sheet on Counting Changes on Nonimmigrant Admissions

On February 14, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Immigration Statistics issued a policy directorate fact sheet providing an indication of the overall impact on counting changes in I-94 nonimmigrant admissions.  At selected Southwest border crossings, beginning in 2005, the Department of Homeland Security installed new technology to record land admissions previously excluded from I-94 data systems.  By 2010, this technology had been installed at nearly every pedestrian crossing and vehicular lane along the Southwest and Northern borders. The increase in I-94 nonimmigrant admissions after 2005 as reported by the Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) is partly due to more complete counting. The OIS Fact Sheet provides an indication of the impact by displaying trends in nonimmigrant admissions compared to trends in the number of individuals admitted each year during 2001-2010.
