Unique Identifier Provision of IMLForward From: RegistrantTAG.orgTo: ALLWe are reaching out to all and affiliates to respond the recent State Department notice on implementation of the unique identifier provision of IML.It was signed by:Bureau of Councilor AffairsSen Senior Advisor David T Donahue 6826 202-647-9584We request emails, faxes, phone calls etc be sent to the attached individuals to protest this implementationIn ones own words, but the general talking points are as follows:“I (we) protest the State Department’s implementation of International Megans Law (IML) and the specific provision for a unique identifier on American Citizen’s passports. The notification provisions and the Passport Identifier marking the passport holder as a registered sex offender puts the lives of American citizens and their families in danger when traveling to foreign countries. As such, those Americans will be designated (by their own government) as unworthy of the protections afforded U.S. Citizens and invite abuses at the hands of foreign governments. So too will their families who accompany them be subjected to mistreatment by foreign governments whose standards may fall below those of the U.S. Reports already confirm American citizens and families have been harassed, threatened, items stolen, and travel plans destroyed by the current Angel Watch alert system.The passport mark will further identify the holder as a former offender to any who require passports in commerce, such as hotels and banks, who may also use this information as a means to extort or threaten the passport holder.Neither the notification or the passport mark will serve any role in curbing or curtailing child sexual exploitation as has been noted by leading experts. Instead, it will stifle legitimate travel, split families apart and prevent lawful international business activities.Statistics indicate, not only a low rate of re offense for former offenders, but that offenses are overwhelming committed by those not on sex offender registries.”Please send protest emails, fax and phone calls to :U.S. Department of State, Office of Civil Rights (S/OCR)Email: email@example.comTel: (202) 647-9295 or (202) 647-9294 Fax: (202) 647-4969Deputy Assistant Secretary for Passport Services (CA/PPT)Deputy Assistant Secretary Brenda Sprague 6826 202-647-9584Special Assistant Dan Pauly SA-17A 4th FL 202-485-6374Staff Assistant Zlatko Pasalic SA-17A 4th FL 202-485-6387Managing Director, Issuance Operations Florence G.

In this trying time we want to reiterate a few things for our registrants and families. We don't want there to be any confusion or penalties concerning registry requirements during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Make sure you know current requirements. You can go to your Sheriff's Office website to see if there is new information there. If so, we suggest you do a screen print and save it. Call your registry office to get clarification on any questions you might have. Document the date, time, who you spoke with and their instructions regarding any address change, vehicle, employment, travel dates if required, etc.
Keep in mind if you are required to update your drivers license annually through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) you should contact them for their status. Some are limiting the number of people allowed inside and you have to wait to receive a call from them and then come back inside. Document any instructions.Be safe, be smart, stay healthy and know we will get through this.
All information is confidential and we do not distribute any data whatsoever.
The W.A.R. Support Line:
To say this is discrimination is not strong enough. A person who has committed murder is not required to be marked as a murderer. Please stop such inhumane treatment of someone who has been blamed for a sexual crime. There should not be a register either.
