Following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the federal government's need to locate aliens in the U.S. was considerably heightened. Without reliable alien address information, the government is impeded in its ability to find aliens who represent a national security threat or who could help with the nation's anti-terrorism efforts.
