Tell Congress to Hold USCIS Accountable

Updated: Feb 19

For generations, immigration has been a mighty engine of growth in the United States. Immigrants coming to join family, to work, and to find protection from danger have enriched our nation. They contribute to our shared economic growth by launching businesses, fueling entrepreneurship, and sustaining the U.S. labor force.

In recent years, however, crisis level delays and new policies are creating obstacles to legal immigration and redirecting USCIS toward enforcement rather than customer-service. During fiscal years 2017 and 2018, USCIS’s average case processing time increased by 46 percent - a dramatic shift that will cause millions of people to wait significantly longer for their decisions.

In response to AILA’s effort to hold USCIS accountable for crisis-level backlogs, members of Congress are now planning to send oversight letters to the agencies.  Congress is listening! 

Act NOW to tell your member of Congress to join a letter demanding greater transparency and oversight of USCIS.
