regions and voice distress and hailing
from Kodiak, Alaska and Guam. We
invite your comments on this proposed
action.
DATES

the online docket via http://

Discussion
The U.S. Coast Guard is proposing to
cease monitoring four, HF-voice-distress
frequencies in the contiguous United
States and Hawaii due to the lack of
activity on these frequencies. During a
6-year period, there were four potential
distress calls heard over these four voice
frequencies; none required a Coast
Guard response. These four voice
frequencies, which we propose to cease
monitoring in the contiguous United
States and Hawaii, are: 4125 kHz; 6215
kHz; 8291 kHz; and 12290 kHz.
Monitoring of HF DSC frequencies for
all existing regions and voice distress
and hailing from Kodiak, Alaska and
Guam would not be affected by this
proposed action. There would also be
no change in service to Puerto Rico, U.S.
Virgin Islands, or American Samoa
since these U.S. territories do not
currently have HF infrastructure.
We believe this change would have a
low impact on the maritime public as
commercial satellite radios and DSC-
marine-Single-Sideband HF radios have
become more prevalent onboard vessels.

However, we would like your comments
on how you would be affected if we
terminated monitoring HF-voice-only
distress frequencies within the
contiguous United States and Hawaii,
particularly if you use HF, but do not
currently have a commercial satellite
radio or a HF DSC capable radio aboard
your vessel.
We will consider all comments in
response to this notice before deciding
whether to terminate the monitoring of
these HF voice-only distress frequencies
within the contiguous United States and
Hawaii. After considering comments
received, the Coast Guard will issue a
notice in the Federal Register indicating
what course of action it has decided to
take. This notice is issued under the
authority of 14 U.S.C. 504(a)(16) and 5
U.S.C. 552(a).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
I. Background
In accordance with the Privacy Act of
1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, DHS/ICE proposes
to modify and reissue a current DHS
system of records notice (SORN) titled,
‘‘DHS/ICE–009 External Investigations
System of Records.’’ DHS/ICE is
updating this system of records to better
reflect and clarify the nature of law
enforcement investigatory records
collected, maintained, and shared by
ICE.
The purpose of this system of records
is to collect and maintain records
related to external investigations and
support conducted by ICE offices,
primarily HSI. ICE/HSI is the largest
investigative branch of the DHS. The
agency was created to more effectively
enforce immigration and customs laws
and to protect the United States against
terrorist attacks. ICE does this by
targeting the people, money, and
materials that support terrorism and
other criminal activities. ICE
investigates on its own and in
conjunction with other agencies a broad
range of illegal activities, such as
terrorism, organized crime, gangs, child
exploitation, and intellectual property
violations.
This system of records covers
information related to external audits,
inquiries, and investigations pertaining
to suspected violations of laws
regulating the movement of people and
goods into and out of the United States.
For example, this system of records will
include investigatory records that are
generated prior to the creation of an
official case file, and records pertaining
to immigration status inquiries that do
not constitute an official criminal
investigation.
This system of records was also used
to support information requests from the
U.S. Congress relating to potential
recipients of private immigration relief.
That purpose has since been transferred
to the DHS/ICE–011 Criminal Arrest
Records and Immigration Enforcement
Records (CARIER) System of Records
(see 81 FR 72080 (October 19, 2016)).
This update modifies the system of
records notice to excise the stated
purpose, category of individuals, and
routine use that related to supplying
information to assist with private
immigration relief.
The following list includes the full
explanation of changes to this system of
records notice:
(1) The category of individuals in this
system of records has been modified to
include family members and known
associates of a subject of investigation,
as well as individuals and third-party
record holders who are served
administrative subpoenas and
summonses for the production of
records and testimony.
(2) The category of records has been
modified to include criminal history,
immigration status and history,
biometrics (e.g., facial images, iris
images, and fingerprints), record holder
information (e.g., biographical, contact),
information derived from location
tracking tools, License Plate Reader
(LPR) information, social media
information, suspicious financial
activity, currency transaction reports,
currency or monetary instrument
reports, email addresses and the
contents of email records, unique
numerical identifiers assigned to
biometrics, telecommunication device
identifiers, telecommunications usage
data, call and subscriber records,
banking records, travel history records,
and the statements of targets and
witnesses. The categories of records will
also include information pertaining to
DNA tests conducted by ICE to verify a
familial relationship.
