    03/02/03: Change in Local District Office Structure and Operation and Management

    When people visit the BCIS local district offices Monday, the first day of DHS in charge of immigrtion functions, they will not notice any changes since the offices will be located and operated in the same building. However, when it comes to the structure and management, there will be a big change. Each of the new immigration-related Bureaus now operates their own distict offices separately. In most local district offices, they will have at least two Directors, one for BCIS and one for BICE, each operating under a completely separate line of command. In international airports, sea and border ports of entry, people will also see another Director who will manage immigration/custom inspections, border patrols, etc. Until February 28, 2003, each local District office was represented by one set of leadership, one District Director and one Deputy District Director, and under their supervision, associate/assistant Directors managed the three immigration functions. Not any more! The local District Directors of BCIS, BICE, and BCBP will just share the same office building, but there will be two or three District Offices in each locality from now on. It appears that the former District Directors and Deputy Directors have been removed and some of them have been renamed as Director or Deputy Director of BCIS. Considering the fact that each local District operation of BCBP consolidated three inspection Directors (customs, immigration, agricultural product) and at least the two former District Directors at each Port of Entry have lost the Director positions, a large number of local district managers and leaders lost the managerial positions on March 1, 2003, resulting in a substantial shake-up of leadership at the local district level. We wish them well.
