Queries can be words or phrases. The tips below can increase the feedback of a query to receive more complete results. These tips help with basic query language and acquaint users with the full power of the search function on this site.
Search with the keyword NEAR, rather than AND, for words close to each other. For example, both of these queries, enforcement and immigration and enforcement near immigration, look for the words enforcement and immigration on the same page. But with NEAR, the returned pages are ranked in order of proximity: The closer together the words are, the higher the rank of the page returned.
Refine queries with the AND NOT keywords to exclude certain text from your search. For example, if you want to find all instances of immigration but not immigrant, write the following query:
immigration AND NOT immigrant
Add the OR keyword to find all instances of either one word or another, for example:
predator OR smuggling
This query finds all pages that mention predator or smuggling or both.
Put quotation marks around keywords if you want the search to take them literally. For instance, if you type the following query:
"enforcement near Federal property"
The search will literally look for the complete phrase enforcement near Federal property. But if you type the same query without the quotation marks:
enforcement near Federal property
The search, searches all documents for the words enforcement and Federal property.
You can easily search for and within document titles by limiting your search to the contents of the title. To do this, you need to use the term @doctitle followed by the word or words you wish to find within the document title.
If you type the following query:
This query finds all pages that have Miami in the document title.
