📄USCIS has released a new plan to improve services for immigrants.
There are 5 major improvements that will help to fix the issues that remained after Trump’s anti-immigration changes.
✅1. The ability to request Expedited Processing of cases.
✅2. Instead of sending general denials, to replace such with Requests for Evidence (RFE) and Notices of Intent to Deny (NOID), which would allow applicants to correct errors in their forms and provide clarification and explanations to support their petitions.
✅3. To increase the term of a validity of work permit to 2 years for those who have green card cases pending; for both the initial filing and the extension of the work permit.
✅4. Now it is possible to ask for fee waivers for people in need and even for charitable organizations that provide cultural and social benefits to the United States.
✅5. Students in financial need now have the opportunity to apply for a work permit.
📝Minister of Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mallorcas, who was appointed by Biden, said that USCIS is taking actions to improve immigrants’ access to its services, facilitate the process of applying for all sorts of existing ways of legalization. He promised they will continue to improve the system. He wants it to be more accessible to the public and to reduce the hassle for those who qualify to receive American Citizenship.
☝Of course our firm is very pleased with such positive changes. Now there are opportunities to speed up processes for those customers who really have some urgent reasons and problems. Students with financial hardships will have the opportunity to work while studying. People who applied for a green card through marriage or any other family petition will simply apply for a work permit and the permit will be valid for 2 years. This will greatly help our main goal which is to help immigrants.
Very truly yours.
