Identity and Benefit Fraud

ICE places a high priority on investigating document and benefit fraud. These types of fraud pose a severe threat to national security and public safety because they create a vulnerability that may enable terrorists, other criminals and illegal aliens to gain entry to and remain in the United States.

Document and benefit fraud are elements of many immigration-related crimes, such as human smuggling and human trafficking. critical infrastructure protection, worksite enforcement. visa compliance enforcement and national security investigations.

Document fraud. also known as identity fraud. is the manufacturing, counterfeiting, alteration, sale, and/or use of identity documents and other fraudulent documents to circumvent immigration laws or for other criminal activity. Identity fraud in some cases also involves identity theft, a crime in which an imposter takes on the identity of a real person (living or deceased).

Benefit fraud is the willful misrepresentation of a material fact on a petition or application to gain an immigration benefit. Benefit fraud can be an extremely lucrative form of white-collar crime, often involving sophisticated schemes and multiple co-conspirators. These schemes can take years to investigate and prosecute.

The Identity and Benefit Fraud Unit is charged with investigating and disrupting document and benefit fraud schemes. It coordinates its investigative efforts with other U.S. Department of Homeland Security components, such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. as well as other federal agencies such as the U. S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Labor .

The unit also develops and advances policy initiatives and proposes legislative changes to address vulnerabilities in the immigration process to deter fraud and reduce the incentives for committing document and benefit fraud.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) enforces an array of laws related to combating criminal organizations and individuals that exploit the United States immigration process.

Document and benefit fraud poses a severe threat to national security and public safety because it creates a vulnerability that may enable terrorists, criminals and illegal aliens to gain entry to and remain in the United States. Document fraud, also known as identity fraud, is the manufacture, sale or use of counterfeit identity documents such as fake driver’s licenses, birth certificates, Social Security cards or passports for immigration fraud or other criminal activity. Benefit fraud refers to the misrepresentation or omission of facts on an application to obtain an immigration benefit one is not entitled to, such as U.S. citizenship, political asylum or a valid visa.

To combat this type of fraud, HSI has partnered with federal, state, and local counterparts to create the Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force, a series of multi-agency teams developed to target criminal organizations and beneficiaries behind these fraudulent schemes.

These task forces maximize resources, eliminate the duplication of efforts and produce a strong law enforcement presence. They combine HSI’s unique criminal and administrative authorities with a variety of tools and authorities from other law enforcement agencies to achieve focused, high-impact criminal prosecutions and financial seizures.

Future

HSI will continue to establish new document and benefit fraud task forces in major metropolitan areas as resources permit. Expanding the coordinated interagency efforts of the document and benefit fraud task forces will prevent future abuses, while ensuring that those who do abuse the system are prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law.

Locations

Currently there are 28 Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force locations in the United States:

  • Atlanta
  • Baltimore
  • Boston
  • Buffalo
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Detroit
  • El Paso

Marriage fraud is a threat to U.S. national security, public safety and the integrity of the immigration system.

Marriage fraud investigations conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) have revealed massive schemes that involve complex criminal organizations.

Neither victimless nor limited in scope, the crime of marriage fraud is anything but a trivial matter. Engaging in this fraud and trading America’s security for financial gain is a felony with serious criminal penalties and consequences.

Types of Marriage Fraud

  • A U.S. citizen is paid, or asked to perform a favor, to marry a foreign national;
  • “Mail-order” marriage where either the U.S. citizen or alien knows it is a fraud;
  • Visa lottery fraudulent marriage; and,
  • A foreign national defrauds a U.S. citizen who believes the marriage is legitimate.

Penalties

An individual will be charged with marriage fraud if they entered into a marriage for the purpose of evading U.S. immigration law. This felony offense carries a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000, and applies to both foreign nationals and U.S. citizens who perpetrate this crime.

Those charged with marriage fraud may also be charged with visa fraud, harboring an alien, conspiracy and making false statements; each charge carries additional prison sentences and financial penalties.

Further Consequences

U.S. citizens who enter into fraudulent marriages assume great personal liability. The foreign spouse may gain access to sensitive, personal information including, but not limited to, bank accounts, safe deposit boxes, retirement and investment accounts, personal identity information, and family heirlooms.

Terrorists and other criminals can use marriage fraud as a vehicle to enter the United States, often due to the willingness of U.S. citizens. They can then hide their identity, gain unlawful employment, access government buildings, and open bank accounts and businesses to conduct further criminal activity.

Participants in marriage fraud may, knowingly or unknowingly, be aiding terrorists, foreign intelligence or other criminal organizations, and will be held accountable.

Marriage Fraud Initiative

HSI has recently launched a nationwide marriage fraud outreach campaign to raise public awareness, educate partner organizations, and deter individuals from engaging in this criminal activity. The Marriage Fraud Initiative (MFI) seeks to counter the common perception among the public and in popular culture that entering into a fraudulent marriage, with the sole purpose of assisting a foreign national with gaining U.S. immigration status, is a harmless transgression with little or no consequences. The MFI highlights not only the damaging impact on public safety, national security, and the integrity of the lawful immigration system, but the potential adverse personal, financial and legal ramifications for U.S. citizens who either knowingly or are duped into participating in sham marriages. The MFI strives to combat and prevent marriage fraud through increased public knowledge, forging long-term partnerships and renewed vigilance.

One of the fundamental challenges in combating document fraud at state-level Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) locations is the identification of employee misconduct. In order to enhance identification efforts, ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) developed an outreach initiative to raise awareness about employee misconduct and alert law enforcement to identity and benefit fraud schemes perpetrated at DMV facilities. HSI developed outreach materials that promote accountability and vigilance in an effort to reduce fraud and preserve the integrity of the DMV process. HSI encourages the public and DMV employees to report corruption via the ICE tip line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE and via local DMV tip lines. Reporting this crime gives the public and employees an opportunity to be a part of the solution.

DMV Outreach Poster (PDF | 668 KB)

Operation Genesius was launched in 2009 as a voluntary partnership with the printing industry to share information and develop investigative leads about the practices of organized document fraud rings. Operation Genesius is based upon a similar and successful voluntary partnership project between the London Metropolitan Police Department and printing companies that affords an opportunity for the printing industry to collaborate with ICE to identify and disrupt document fraud. Operation Genesius expanded this collaboration to the stamp making and marking device industries.

Diploma HE Architectural Interior Design

Dates: 11 Sept 2017 13 July 2018, 10am – 4pm

Length: Full-time, 1 academic year in 3 terms

Course Director: Alan Hughes MA

Location: 7 Eaton Gate, London SW1W 9BA

Fee: £26,546.00 inc VAT. An Instalment Plan is available, please ask the Course Administrator.

News:This Diploma has been newly validated by Wrexham Glyndŵr University and as such will form part of the BA (Hons) qualification. It now constitutes a Diploma HE Architectural Interior design at FHEQ Level 5. Please contact the School for details as the web is currently being updated.

Course Aims

  • To evaluate site and functional constraints and evolve design solutions.
  • To develop an understanding of design as it relates to the domestic and commercial interior together with the capability to present design ideas visually.
  • To develop spatial awareness, the capability to organise space with a knowledge and understanding of ergonomics and an ability to handle interior decorative elements.

Diploma HE Architectural Interior Design – course content

Throughout the course you will develop skills in the following modules:

Design

This is at the heart of the Diploma HE in Architectural Interior Design Course. It addresses the fundamental elements of design in interiors, covering survey spatial manipulation and planning, design concepts and form, use of light and colour and use of texture and materials.

Through project work supported by lectures you learn to approach the process of design as a problem-solving exercise, involving successful interpretation of the client brief and incorporating psychological and emotional considerations.

Design analysis

Analysis encourages spatial appreciation and the investigation of a site in terms of its current and proposed uses and its relationship in the wider context. It also encourages design development – methodically exploring alternative solutions before moving to the design stage with the use of diagrammatic assessments of tasks and the space needed to carry them out in conjunction with analysis of survey, circulation and ergonomics.

Graphics

Visual communication and presentation skills are essential for the dissemination of design information. You will develop two- and three-dimensional drawing skills and learn to use various rendering and colouring techniques in your design projects, alongside the creation of sample and illustration boards. You will also explore Vectorworks, an industry standard computer-aided design (CAD) software package, as a means of drawing up designs.

Construction

The understanding of constructional issues informs and exposes what is possible in interior design terms and it is crucial to comprehend the constraints and regulations with regards to the alteration of the built environment. You will examine structural principles and the fabric and services of both domestic and commercial buildings. The aim is to promote professional realistic thinking within your design proposals and to incorporate sound practice with imaginative and appropriate design solutions. You will also examine the technical application of hard and soft finishes, the detailed installation of services, staircase design and the design of built-in fitments.

Job administration

In this module of the course you will explore business issues relevant to the practice of interior design: types of business, accounts, tax, professional indemnity, personnel management, equipment, budgeting, tendering and placing orders, site supervision and the fee structure.

Diploma HE Architectural Interior Design – teaching methods and entry requirements

The Diploma HE in Architectural Interior Design course is taught through practical projects carried out in studio and lectures, and also includes visits. Course places are strictly limited to ensure that you gain close working relationships with teaching staff. You will be supported in studio at a ratio of 8/9:1.

You must demonstrate a commitment to deal with a heavy workload as the Diploma course is an intensive professional programme.

All teaching and lectures are conducted in English and the following criteria may be required if English is not your first language: IELTS 5.5 (with no individual element below 5.0).

During a spill response, sensitive locations threatened by an advancing oil slick can be protected with various kinds of equipment and tactics.

Booms are floating, physical barriers to oil, made of plastic, metal, or other materials, which slow the spread of oil and keep it contained. Skilled teams deploy booms using mooring systems, such as anchors and land lines. They commonly place boom:

  • Across a narrow entrance to the ocean, such as a stream outlet or small inlet, to close off that entrance so that oil can’t pass through into marshland or other sensitive habitat.
  • In places where the boom can deflect oil away from sensitive locations, such as shellfish beds or beaches used by piping plovers as nesting habitat.
  • Around a sensitive site, to prevent oil from reaching it.

There are three main types of boom. Hard boom is like a floating piece of plastic that has a cylindrical float at the top and is weighted at the bottom so that it has a skirt under the water. If the currents or winds are not too strong, booms can also be used to make the oil go in a different direction (this is called deflection booming ). Sorbent boom looks like a long sausage made out of a material that absorbs oil. If you were to take the inside of a disposable diaper out and roll it into strips, it would act much like a sorbent boom. Sorbent booms don’t have the skirt that hard booms have, so they can’t contain oil for very long. Fire boom is not used very much. It looks like metal plates with a floating metal cylinder at the top and thin metal plates that make the skirt in the water. This type of boom is made to contain oil long enough that it can be lit on fire and burned up.

Skimmers are boats and other devices that can remove oil from the sea surface before it reaches sensitive areas along a coastline. In the photo below, oil is being skimmed from the sea surface by a “vessel of opportunity.” Sometimes, two boats will tow a collection boom, allowing oil to concentrate within the boom, where it is then picked up by a skimmer.

A “vessel of opportunity” skims oil spilled after the Deepwater Horizon/BP well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010. (NOAA)

If local authorities and response experts agree, other possible but more controversial measures responders might consider include:

NOAA worked with the Coast Guard and others to employ in situ burns during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon/BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. (U.S. Coast Guard)

  • In situ burning of an oil slick, or part of a slick, before it reaches the coast. To do this, responders corral some of the oil from the slick in a fire-proof boom, then ignite it (as has been done in the photo to the right). This technique works best when the oil is fresh and the weather relatively calm.
  • Using aircraft or boats to apply dispersants (chemicals that disperse the oil into the water column, so that much less stays at the surface, where it could affect beaches and tideflats).

Spill response experts know that all of these methods are effective only when conditions are conducive to using them.
