.02 Nonqualified Noncitizens without USCIS Documentation
(04/01/10 –06/30/10)
A nonqualified noncitizen without USCIS documentation, also known as an undocumented noncitizen(g), may or may not have entered the U.S. without the knowledge or permission of USCIS.
Once it has been determined that a noncitizen participant does not have USCIS documents, do not question the participant further regarding their noncitizen status.
For CA and NA, when a noncitizen has no documents, key DI in the PT field on the SEPA screen.
When a noncitizen has no documents, key the following:
OT in the CI field on the IDCI screen
NS in the STAT field on the NOCS screen
Citizens of either the Marshall Islands or the Federated States of Micronesia may work and establish residence in the U.S. These noncitizens do not need USCIS permission to legally enter and live in the U.S. and may not have USCIS documentation.
A nonqualified noncitizen who is residing in the United States without the knowledge or permission of USCIS, may do one of the following:
Voluntarily self declare that they are residing in the U.S. illegally
Provide Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) documents verifying violation of USCIS law
When either of these occurs, complete the following:
Obtain an electronic OSI referral e-form at the following link: http://intranet.azdes.gov/iceforms.aspx (Internal use only)
Complete the OSI referral
Place a copy of the completed OSI referral form in the case file(g)
Send the OSI referral form to OSI by clicking on the submit button at the bottom of the page
NOTE Do NOT document the case file.
Failure to report confirmed violations of immigration law is a class 2 misdemeanor toward the employee.
When the employee's supervisor knows of the failure to report and fails to instruct the employee to make the report, the supervisor is also guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor.
