USCIS Announces Ten Areas of Focus for Policy Review

leave a comment »

USCIS has announced the results of a public survey that helped USCIS select 10 issue areas to address in an agency-wide review.

Informed by the survey responses, the agency’s needs, and input from the workforce, the USCIS Policy Review will begin by examining policies in the following ten areas:

  1. National Customer Service Center
  2. Non-immigrant H-1B
  3. Naturalization and Citizenship
  4. Employment-based Adjustment of Status
  5. Family-based Adjustment of Status
  6. Employment-Based Preference Categories 1, 2 and 3
  7. Refugee and Asylum Adjustment of Status
  8. Form I-601
  9. General Humanitarian
  10. Employment Authorization and Travel Documents.

In April 2010, USCIS issued a public survey that asked members of the public, as well as its own workforce, to help identify the issue areas that the agency should examine first.   USCIS received approximately 5,600 survey responses from diverse stakeholders.

USCIS is now establishing internal working groups to focus on each of the 10 issue areas. The working groups will include USCIS adjudicators, policy analysts, attorneys, customer-service representatives and other experts from within the agency.
