The “Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program” (CARRP) and “terrorism-related inadmissibility grounds” (TRIG) are related national security programs that impact immigrants. TRIG is a program created by statute that impacts U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Department of State (DOS) cases. CARRP is a U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) program used to investigate suspected TRIG cases, but lacks any statutory or regulatory authorization. Both programs impact the adjudication of applications for immigration benefits, such as asylum, permanent residence, and naturalization. These programs fall under the guise of national security, and lead to unreasonable delays, unfair denials, removal orders, and sometimes criminal prosecutions for fraud and other crimes.
