Also in 2002, SSA began to open offices dedicated entirely to handling Social Security number business. The first Social Security Card Center (SSCC) opened in Brooklyn, NY, in November 2002. Six more SSCCs have since opened: Las Vegas, NV, in April 2005; Jamaica, NY, in July 2006; Downtown and North Phoenix, AZ, in October 2007; Orlando, FL, in March 2008; and Sacramento, CA, in November 2008. Generally, any individuals who live in the service area of a Card Center and need an original or replacement card must visit the Card Center rather than their local field office.

Notwithstanding, if the noncitizen makes a false claim to U.S. citizenship or to U.S. nationality at the port of entry and an immigration officer permits the noncitizen to enter the United States, the noncitizen has not been admitted. A U.S. citizen arriving at a port of entry is not subject to inspection; therefore, a noncitizen who makes a false claim to U.S. citizenship is considered to have entered without inspection. 153554b96e
