Recommendation Details
Text of Recommendation
Conduct a review of all instances in which CBP, as part of its response to the migrant caravan, disclosed U.S. citizens’ Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information to Mexican officials, between October 2018 and March 2019, to identify any instances that did not comply with foreign disclosure requirements and take remedial actions. Remedial actions may include rescinding requests to deny entry to U.S. citizens, retroactively instructing foreign authorities to hold CBP information in confidence and use CBP information only for the purpose for which CBP provided it, ensuring disclosures are properly documented in CBP’s systems of records, and any other steps necessary to ensure that all foreign disclosures comply with CBP Directive No. 4320-025A, Disclosure of Official Information to Foreign Authorities, DHS Sensitive Systems Policy Directive 4300A, DHS Handbook for Safeguarding Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information, and all other applicable policies and procedures.
