ABSTRACT: CASE is the Information Resource Management System that provides the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) with case tracking and management information, office automation, Internet/Intranet, and automated legal research services. The term CASE is considered to be inclusive of all EOIR's Information Resources (hardware, software, and data).

PURPOSE: All of CASE's applications are critical to EOIR's mission, which is to provide uniform interpretation and application of immigration law, ensuring fair treatment for all parties involved. The case tracking and management application and data are by far the most important and most often applied aspects of the system. The data and statistics derived from the case tracking and management application have also proven to be useful to other agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which utilizes CASE's data to meet various aspects of its mission. The data in the CASE System is noted for its accuracy, and the statistics derived from that data are used by EOIR management, the Department of Justice, the DHS, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and Congress to support management and policy decisions.

ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: All records in CASE are protected from unauthorized access through appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards. These safeguards include restricting access to specific areas of CASE to those who need to access those areas to perform their official duties, using locks and alarm devices, passwords, and limiting communication access.

USE CONSTRAINTS: Users of CASE will be restricted to only those privileges necessary to perform assigned tasks.

AGENCY PROGRAM: The Attorney General is charged with the administration of EOIR, and the interpretation of the laws relating to the immigration and naturalization of aliens. The Attorney General has delegated to EOIR certain aspects of his authority to administer and interpret the immigration laws. Specifically:

A. Immigration Hearings

B. Review of Immigration Hearings

C. Employment Discrimination, Document Fraud, and Employer Sanctions Hearings

Essentially, EOIR's mission is to provide uniform interpretation and application of the immigration laws, ensuring fair treatment for all parties involved. CASE is the information resource used by EOIR to meet these goals.

SOURCES OF DATA: The majority of the information contained in CASE is derived from the files, documents, and decisions from the Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals.
