Tahirih Letter to Acting ICE Director on DHS-VINE Database

Tahirih found that detained applicants for U visas – and potentially other protected survivors – are listed in the new searchable Department of Homeland Security Victim Information Notification Exchange (DHS-VINE) online database. Under the law, DHS is prohibited from disclosing any information about these protected survivors to a third-party, with certain limited exceptions.

Tahirih informed the Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that applicants for U, T, and VAWA protection, including Tahirih clients, are listed in the DHS-VINE database on May 12, 2017 and again in this letter on May 25, 2017.
