Charging of Fees for Services at Land Border Ports-of-Entry
Immigration and Naturalization Service, Justice.
This rule amends the regulations to allow the Immigration and Naturalization Service (the Service) to charge a fee for the processing and issuance of specified documents at land border Ports-of-Entry (POEs). The fees are necessary to cover the costs of providing these services which benefit certain applicants at land border POEs. The revenue generated by the collection of fees for these application-processing services will enable the Service to improve service to the public at land border POEs.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Marie De Soto, Assistant Chief Inspector, Inspections Division, Immigration and Naturalization Service, 425 I Street NW., Room 7228, Washington, DC 20536, telephone (202) 514-1798.
The Service published a proposed rule on April 12, 1994, at 59 FR 17283, to amend the regulations to allow the Service to charge a fee for processing and issuing specified documents at land border Ports-or-Entry (POEs). Consistent with 31 U.S.C. 9701 and OMB Circular A-25, User Charges, the proposed rule identified application services that currently are provided free-of-charge and for which it would be appropriate to impose a fee. The services identified are tasks commonly performed in secondary inspecti
on such as examining documents, conducting record checks, and interviewing applicants in order to issue permits for extended stays in the United States. In addition, the services provides to applicants-for-admission at POEs, border crossing cards and boating permits; documents that may require extensive interviews, record checks, document production, and other time-consuming paperwork. Specifically, the proposed rule included fees for the processing of Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record; Form I-94W, Nonim
migrant Visa Waiver Arrival/Departure Form; Form I-444, Mexican Border Visitors Permit; Form I-68, Canadian Border Boat Landing Permit; Form I-175, Application for Nonresident Alien Canadian Border Crossing Card for issuance of Form I-185, Nonresident Alien Canadian Border Crossing Card (CBCC); and Form I-190, Application for Nonresident Alien Mexican Border Crossing Card, to replace a lost, stolen, or mutilated Nonresident Alien Border Crossing Card (BCC), Form I-586.
All interested parties were invited to submit comments on the proposed rule by June 13, 1994. The Service received 22 comments and considered each of the comments in preparing the final rule. Commenters included private individuals, Chambers of Commerce, local government representatives, small business owners, members of Congress, and Service employees. Since most discussed several issues, the total number of comments exceeds the number of persons who commented.
Discussion of Comments
Support for Fees
Eight of the commenters expressed general support for fees for services, with recommendations that the revenues be used to address the illegal immigration problem in the United States. The fees were set to recover only the costs associated with providing the document-processing services and related benefits to certain land border crossing applicants. The revenues generated by these fees are to be used for the purpose of funding the costs incurred to provide these application processing services. It is an
ticipated that the implementation of the fees-for-services charge will enable the Service to improve inspection services at the land border. Once the fee revenues are available, appropriated resources formerly allocated to fund these document-processing services may be redirected to augment staffing of vehicle and pedestrian traffic lanes at land border Ports-of-Entry. The resulting benefit would be improved facilitation of traffic through the POEs.
One commenter proposed that in addition to charging for the Form I-190 to replace a lost, stolen, or mutilated Form I-586, a $4.00 fee be imposed for a temporary border crossing card pending issuance of the Form I-586. Another commenter suggested that the fee for the Form I-68 should be higher and that a $25.00 charge was more appropriate and comparable with a Canadian fee for inspecting United States boats. While the Service recognizes the concerns of the commenters, any additional fees beyond those that
were in the proposed rule would have to be the subject of a separate rule. Increasing the fee for the Form I-68 from $16.00 to $25.00 would not be consistent with Federal user fee statutes and regulations which require that the fee be set to recover the full costs of providing the services. A cost analysis of the services provided, including the indirect costs associated with these services, resulted in the fees, as established. The Service will conduct periodic reviews of the fees, changes to issuance pr
ocedures, and methods used in determining fees and, when warranted, adjustments to the fees will be made.
Justification for Fees
Two commenters suggested that the Government should be required to provide service to the public, and that to charge individuals for that service is not necessary or warranted. On the contrary, the Federal user fee statute (31 U.S.C. 9701) and regulations require that recipients of special benefits bear the costs of providing those services. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-25, User Charges, states as a general policy that reasonable charges should be imposed to recover the full cost to
the Federal Government of rendering such services. In July 1993, the Office of the Inspector General completed an audit of services performed and special benefits provided by the Service. This audit disclosed a number of services currently being provided free-of-charge by the Service for which it would be appropriate to impose a fee including the Canadian Border Boat Landing Permit, Form I-68, and applications for Border Crossing Cards, Forms I-190 and I-175. The audit concluded that the Service was not
in compliance with OMB directives with regard to these services, and that failure to collect fees for services resulted in the cost being paid by the general public out of the general fund appropriation. In an effort to comply with federal directives, the Service determined which services and benefits are currently provided without charge to certain beneficiaries and for which it would be appropriate to impose a fee, culminating in this rule.
Two commenters, objecting to the fee for Form I-68, stated that, if boaters refuse to obtain Form I-68 because of the fee, the Service will be forced to provide additional personnel and facilities where none exist to inspect boaters upon arrival in the United States. However, pursuant to 8 CFR 100.4, persons entering the United States may only present themselves to an immigration officer at those ports designated as Class A Ports-of-Entry at a time when the port is open for inspection.
The I-68 provision is the only exception to this reporting requirement. The provision extends to boaters the opportunity of recreational boating without reporting for inspection during each outing. A boater who refuses to obtain Form I-68 is otherwise required to expend the time, expense, and effort to report to an open, staffed POE.
The I-68 is clearly a specific benefit that the Service provides to an identifiable recipient, as defined by Federal user fee statute and OMB Circular A-25, User Charges. It is a benefit for which the Service is required to charge a fee. However, participation in the I-68 program is voluntary.
Each boating season, in order to make this benefit easily available, inspectors travel to boat shows, marinas, and other gatherings to issue the Form I-68. The Service's districts mount publicity campaigns to educate boaters about these requirements. The purpose of the Form I-68 fee is to recover the costs of providing these services and this special benefit to boaters, since funding is insufficient for additional personnel and new facilities, and there are no other resources available to support port expa
Use of Revenues
One commenter expressed concern that there was no guarantee that the money generated from these collections would be applied to efforts to deal with illegal immigration. The Service recognizes the concern of the commenter; however, consistent with the mission of the Service, inspectors at POEs have a very important dual role: that of facilitating the entry of bona fide applicants-for-admission, and that of enforcing the immigration laws by detecting inadmissible applicants and those attempting entry by fra
ud. The Service will use the revenue generated from the fees contained in this rule to fund the costs incurred to improve the secondary application-processing services provided at land border POEs. Consequently, the Service intends to devote appropriated resources formerly expended for secondary application processing services to staffing of vehicle and pedestrian traffic lanes at land border Ports-of-Entry. This overall increase in resources will allow the Service to better meet its mission of facilitat
ing the entry of bona fide applicants-for-admission, providing better service to the traveling public at land border POEs, and enforcing the immigration laws by detecting inadmissible applicants and those attempting entry fraud.
Another commenter stated that the income should return to the port where it was generated. The fees have been set, to recover not only costs incurred directly at ports, but also costs--both direct and indirect--incurred by the Service for services provided to applicants-for-admission at land border POEs in connection with the six application forms described in this rule. Among the costs identified are a portion of the salaries and expenses of the port inspectors, the cost of training the inspectors, data
processing, production of forms and documents, safeguarding and accounting for the fees collected, and performing record and background checks. Consequently, the fees collected pursuant to this rule are to be used to offset the cost to all Service components, including ports, of providing these application-processing service at all land border POEs. The Service has developed a comprehensive staffing model geared to the unique requirements of land border facilities which incorporates data from each land bord
er POE on vehicle and pedestrian traffic, projected growth, facility expansion, and other items affecting inspection service. Using the model, the Service will be able to properly allocate resources.
Northern and Southern Border Disparities
One commenter wondered why fees are only being charged to those who cross the United States-Mexico border, and not to those who cross from Canada or travel by air from other countries. The fees described in this rule affect land border crossers at both the northern and southern borders. Two of the six forms for which fees are charged, the Form I-94 and the Form I-94W, are alien control documents issued to nonimmigrant aliens of any nationality who seek admission to the United States at either the northern
or southern border. Fees for the two border crossing documents are the Form I-190, Application for Nonresident Alien Mexican Border Crossing Card, and the Form I-175, Application for Nonresident Alien Canadian Border Crossing Card. The remaining two fees are for the issuance of permits which, in the case of the Form I-444, Mexican Border Visitors Permit, is beneficial only to Mexican nationals, and in the case of the Form I-68, Canadian Border Boat Landing Permit, benefits Canadians, United States citize
ns, and other qualified applicants. This rule applies only to land border crossers; however, air travelers arriving at air POEs currently pay a fee.
Two commenters questioned the inequity of requiring the issuance of BCCs for Mexican nationals but not for Canadians. The differences in documentary requirements between Mexican and Canadian nationals are complex, far-reaching, and beyond the scope of this rule. Generally, nonimmigrant visa requirements imposed upon aliens of certain countries are based on treaties and the corresponding regulations of both the Department of State and the Service. Under the existing provisions, Canadian nationals are, for
most nonimmigrant categories, visa-exempt while Mexican nationals are not exempt. A BCC is an acceptable form of documentation, but it is not a required document. When entering the United States across a land border, the BCC generally provides a greater convenience to the holder than a regular nonimmigrant visa because a passport is not necessary. The issuance of BCC's is a benefit that the Service elects to provide to nonimmigrants who routinely cross the border. The Form I-586, Nonresident Alien Mexi
can Border Crossing Card, offers the same privileges as the nonimmigrant visa for a Mexican national seeking entry as a visitor for business (B-1) or pleasure (B-2). Alternatively, a Mexican national may apply, without charge, to an American Consulate in Mexico for a nonimmigrant visa.
Four commenters stated that implementation of a fee for Form I-68 will have an adverse impact on relations with our Canadian neighbors; however, none of the commenters explained in exactly what way this would interfere with good relations. Since the Canadian Government also plans to implement fees for many of the services it provides, an element of reciprocity exists, and there is no clear, disparate treatment on either side of the border.
Economic Impact of Fees
One commenter stated that user fees are inconsistent with the intent of the North American Free-Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to eliminate barriers to trade, and two commenters stated that fees would have a negative impact on the economies of the communities along the southern border. Facilitation of travel between NAFTA countries is of great concern to the Service. Traffic congestion at POEs, where vehicles sometimes wait hours to cross the border, costs local economies tremendous amounts of revenue in lost ti
me and productivity, as well as severely impacting the environment. One way that this congestion can be alleviated is though additional personnel and the implementation of automated technology to expedite the services provided. Individuals traveling within 25 miles of the southern border area for short periods of time will not be affected by the fees. Only those traveling more than 25 miles or staying for longer than 72 hours will require issuance of an entry permit and payment of a fee. The revenues col
lected will allow the Service to recover the costs for providing the services. Article 1603.4 of the NAFTA states that each party shall limit any fees for processing applications for temporary entry of business persons to the approximate costs of services rendered. Therefore, the Service believes that these fees are not inconsistent with the terms of the NAFTA.
Three commenters felt that imposition of a fee for Form I-68 would cause economic hardship to the communities along the United States/Canada border. The Service does not agree with the comment and believes that the annual fee is nominal for the benefit that is derived. The Service is required to recover the costs of providing this benefit inasmuch as the Federal user fee statute and regulations require that recipients of special benefits bear the costs associated with providing the specific services. The
Service does not expect the fee to significantly deter boaters from obtaining a permit so they may land and enjoy the amenities offered in nearby communities.
Reasonableness of Fee
Two commenters stated that the fee for Form I-68 will impose an economic burden on the individuals requiring the form, who already pay many other taxes and fees, and one commenter felt the fee was unreasonable. The fees included in this rule are not excessive, and are considerably lower than many similar fees charged by Federal, state, and local governments for similar services.
Most of the fees, once paid, allow the applicant to avail him or herself of the benefit for an extended period of time. The CBCC, at $30, is currently valid indefinitely, and the replacement BCC, at $26, is valid for 10 years. The Form I-68, at $16, allows entry for 1 year, and the Form I-94W at $6, is issued for a period of 90 days. The Form I-94, depending on the nonimmigrant classification under which the applicant is entering, may be valid for years, with the normal visitor for pleasure being grante
d a minimum of 6 months for a fee of $6. The Form I-444, with a fee of $4, may be issued for a period not to exceed 30 days.
In addition, the Service has adopted a family cap. Formerly, Forms I-444 and I-68 allowed multiple family members, and unrelated individuals traveling in a group, to apply on one form. The family cap essentially allows children the benefit without a fee so as not to impose an undue burden on families traveling across the southern border for short periods of time, and on families enjoying recreational boating along the northern border.
As stated previously, the fees were determined by an analysis of document-processing services and associated costs, and are calculated to recover the direct and indirect costs to the Service of providing these special services and benefits.
One commenter stated that there is no reason for a United States citizen to pay to obtain Form I-68, since there is no penalty for failure to report for immigration purposes, and that those who do obtain Form I-68 do so only to appear to comply with a non-existent immigration inspection requirement. Although United States citizens are not subject to the immigration laws, the regulations at 8 CFR 235.1 require that application to enter the United States must be made in person to an immigration officer at a
United States POE at a time when the port is open for inspection. This section also states that a person claiming United States citizenship must establish that fact to the examining immigration officer. That is why United States citizens are specifically included in the I-68 regulations. While criminal prosecution, loss of citizenship, or deportation will not apply to a United States citizen who has not complied with inspection requirements, the potential inconvenience in establishing that he or she is no
t subject to the immigration laws if encountered by Service enforcement officers may prove to be significant to most law-abiding boaters and render obtaining the I-68 worthwhile.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
The Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 605(b)), has reviewed this regulation and, by approving it, certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The fees proposed in this rule, calculated to cover only the costs of providing the service, are nominal, and will apply only to individuals, not small entities.
Executive Order 12866
This rule is considered by the Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service, to be a "significant regulatory action" under E.O. 12866, section 3(f), Regulatory Planning and Review. Although this rule requires user fees, the fees are necessary to recover the cost to the Federal Government for processing and issuing specified documents at United States land border Ports-of-Entry for business and pleasure. Title 31 U.S.C. and OMB Circular A-25 require that recipients bear the cost of receivi
ng special benefits. As such, a cost analysis of the INS services provided and associated indirect cost resulted in the fees established herein, which are consistent with Federal user fee statutes and regulations and do not exceed the full cost that may be recovered by the Service.
Executive Order 12612
The regulations adopted herein will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the National Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with Executive Order 12612, it is determined that this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment.
Executive Order 12606
The Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service certifies that she has addressed this rule in light of the criteria in Executive Order 12606 and has determined that it will have no effect on family well-being.
Paperwork Reduction Act
The information collection requirements contained in this rule have been cleared by the Office of Management and Budget under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act. Clearance numbers for these collections(s) are contained in 8 CFR 299.5, Display of Control Numbers.
