  • November 2001 total inspections increased about 598,000 compared to October 2001. The same comparison for last fiscal year showed a decrease of about 973,000.
  • About 11 million U.S. citizens were admitted at INS ports of entry during November 2001, compared to approximately 21 million aliens admitted during the same month. The above categories of admission include individuals who make multiple entries, for example, citizens who leave and reenter the United States multiple times, permanent residents who make multiple entries, or aliens who hold non-immigrant visas or border crossing cards and commute back and forth each week from Canada or Mexico.
  • The total inadmissible count for November 2001 was 45,872, a 7 percent decrease compared to November 2000. Inadmissible persons include aliens referred to secondary inspection who withdraw, are refused entry, are paroled in, or are referred to an Immigration Judge for a removal hearing. Also included are expedited cases where an alien can withdraw, or receives an expedited removal order, or is referred for a credible fear interview.
