  DHS Issues “Rebranded” I-9 Form
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued an updated I-9 form to reflect the change in the government agency responsible for handling immigration matters.

DHS took over the functions of the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in March 2003.  Two entities within DHS, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Service (USCIS) and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), presently maintain responsibility for many of the immigration forms once handled by INS. 

The “rebranded” I-9 form replaces references to INS and to the Department of Justice with references to DHS, USCIS, and ICE.  No substantive changes have been made to the form, and the old form may still be used.  DHS is in the process of making substantive changes to the form and plans to introduce a new I-9 form when the process is complete.
