USCIS launched a new video on its Web site this week that provides a review of the federal agency’s Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program. The new video, available online at http://www.uscis.gov/SAVE, describes the process of immigration status verification and, additionally, provides information about how federal, state and local agencies (that provide benefits) can apply for participation in the SAVE program.
SAVE is a program that helps benefit-granting agencies determine an applicant’s immigration status. SAVE ensures that only applicants with a verifiable immigration status receive federal, state, or local public benefits and licenses. SAVE checks applicants’ immigration status against millions of recorded federal database records. Over 300 agencies have enrolled in the SAVE program, to date.
