Agency Information Collection Activities: Comment Request

ACTION: Request OMB Emergency Approval; Application for T Nonimmigrant 
Status; Application for Immediate Family Member of T-1 Recipient; and 
Declaration of Law Enforcement Officer for Victim of Trafficking in 
Persons.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service 
(INS) has submitted an emergency information collection request (ICR) 
utilizing emergency review procedures, to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for review and clearance in accordance with 5 CFR 1320. 
The INS

[[Page 58170]]

has determined that it cannot reasonably comply with the normal 
clearance procedures under this part because normal clearance 
procedures are reasonably likely to prevent or disrupt the collection 
of information. Therefore, OMB approval has been requested by November 
21, 2001. If granted, the emergency approval is only valid for 180 
days. ALL comments and/or questions pertaining to this pending request 
for emergency approval MUST be directed to OMB, Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Attention: Ms. Karen Lee, Department of Justice 
Desk Officer, 725--17th Street, NW., Suite 10235, Washington, DC 20503. 
Comments regarding the emergency submission of this information 
collection may also be submitted via facsimile to Ms. Lee at 202-395-
6974.
    During the first 60 days of this same period, a regular review of 
this information collection is also being undertaken. During the 
regular review period, the INS requests written comments and 
suggestions from the public and affected agencies concerning this 
information collection. Comments are encouraged and will be accepted 
until January 22, 2002. During 60-day regular review, ALL comments and 
suggestions, or questions regarding additional information, to include 
obtaining a copy of the information collection instrument with 
instructions, should be directed to Mr. Richard A. Sloan, 202-514-3291, 
Director, Policy Directives and Instructions Branch, Immigration and 
Naturalization Service, U.S. Department of Justice, Room 4034, 425 I 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20536. Written comments and suggestions 
from the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed 
collection of information should address one or more of the following 
four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    Overview of this information collection:
