Number Holder (NH) in U.S. and Abroad
Contact the DHS via form G-845, Document Verification Request) to resolve the following
removal issues (see RM 10210.560):
I-Main Web Based SAVE (See GN 00303.640) response shows a NH is a “Lawful Permanent
Resident” but the “Date of Entry” on the response is before the date of removal on
the DRAMS record.
There is reason to believe the removal report is incorrect and the NH may not have
been formally removed as discussed in RS 02635.015D.
The NH insists that he/she was lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent
residence (LAPR) but is unable to submit the required evidence (as discussed in RS 02635.030) and there is no SAVE query response to support LAPR status granted after removal.
The NH (or third party) claims he or she was removed but there is no DRAMS record
to support the allegation. Before contacting DHS, question the NH about the removal
proceedings to determine if there was a formal removal order by an immigration judge
or whether voluntary departure was offered. (See RS 02635.015E.2. - RS 02635.015E.3.) Also, obtain all alien registration numbers (“A” numbers) used by the NH.
If DHS confirms that removal occurred, determine the date of the removal, the NH's
alien registration number and the section of the INA under which removal was ordered,
including the final charge code. If suspension under section 202(n) is required (see
RS 02635.001C. and RS 02635.001D.1. EXCEPTIONS) initiate suspension beginning with the month after the month of DHS confirmation
(unless there is earlier notice from DHS of the removal).
To establish a record of removal on DRAMS send an email message to ^OSA DeleteDeport
(See RS 02635.005C.2.).
