NSEERS Law and Legal Definition
NSEERS means the National Security Entry/Exit Registration System. It is a mechanism for the registration of certain non citizens within the U.S. The system was initiated in 2002 as a measure to revolt against terrorism. It is a special registration in the U.S. to keep track of people entering and leaving the U.S. in order to safeguard American citizens and America's borders. It was the first step taken by the Department of Justice to comply with the development of the Congressionally mandated requirement for a comprehensive entry/exit program.
NSEERS has two parts of registration. They are: port-of-entry registration and domestic registration. In each case, the registree is required to be fingerprinted, photographed, and interrogated.
