Alien Registration

The Federal Ombudsman's Office is conducting an "alien registration."

Why? The purpose of the registration is to get numbers and information about aliens here, so the U.S. Department of Interior can report to the U.S. Congress as required by P.L. 110-229 (the Consolidated Natural Resources Act).

Who counts? The registration counts all people who do not have a U.S. passport or a U.S. permanent residency card, and couldn't get one by applying--including citizens of the freely associated states--Palau, FSM, and the Marshall Islands.

How? There is a simple form.

All non-U.S. citizens fill one out, and turn it in to the Ombudsman's Office (Suite 203, Marina Heights II, Puerto Rico, Saipan). When you turn it in, you need photo identification (passport or other similar document).

When? NOW!!! Data is being gathered between December 14 and December 30, 2009. The time is short.

For more information, call the Ombudsman's Office at 322-8030.

If you want legal advice about your individual situation, talk to a lawyer.
