Abstract: 
A report of the General Accounting Office, entitled "Criminal Aliens Majority Deported From the New York City Area Not Listed in INS' Information Systems" (March 1987) indicates that the names and other identifying information of criminal aliens in the New York City area who are deported are not entered into either the National Automated Immigration Lookout System (NAILS) or the Central Index System (CIS), and hence can reenter the U.S. without the illegal status becoming known to immigration inspectors.
