Summary Department of Justice components can sponsor foreign nationals to be present in the United States to help support investigations and prosecutions. These individuals may otherwise be considered inadmissible to the United States due to their association with criminal enterprises. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) authorizes law enforcement agencies to sponsor these individuals if DOJ accepts responsibility for them and ensures they depart when appropriate. The Office of the Inspector General completed an audit to assess the oversight of DOJ components' foreign national sponsorship activities and the coordination within DOJ components and with DHS. We believe that all DOJ components need to improve their execution of the responsibilities integral to the sponsorship programs, including enhancing the policies for monitoring the locations and activities of sponsored foreign nationals and the management information systems used within the program. We believe this will help prevent lapses in sponsorships that can impact investigative progress and help mitigate the risk that these individuals abscond from DOJ control. Finally, our audit identified lengthy approval delays and diminished perceptions of program effectiveness for certain types of sponsorships. Our report contains 10 recommendations to assist the DOJ's oversight of sponsored foreign nationals.
