Alien Documentation, Identification and Telecommunications System Law and Legal Definition

The Alien Documentation, Identification and Telecommunication System (ADIT) is designed to replace existing alien registration receipt cards and nonresident alien border crossing cards (I-86), that legal aliens are supposed to carry. ADIT will consist of an ID card; automated card, visa, and passport readers at about 200 ports of entry; telecommunications lines; minicomputers; and automated access from field locations to the documentation files that INS is required to maintain on aliens. ADIT is not imposing any new requirements for alien registration. However, it simply replaces easily compromised documents with new ones which will be virtually impossible to tamper with.
