DOJ/LA RIN: 1105-AB56 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: ●DNA-Sample Collection From Immigration Detainees 

The Department of Justice is proposing to amend regulations that require DNA-sample collection from individuals who are arrested, facing charges, or convicted, and from non-United States persons who are detained under the authority of the United States.  The amendment would strike a provision exempting from the sample collection requirement certain aliens from whom collection of DNA samples is not feasible because of operational exigencies or resource limitations.  The exception is not warranted because there are no longer operational exigencies or resource limitations that prevent DNA-sample collection from aliens in the affected class.
