Reminder - USCIS Stakeholder Engagement with Director Mayorkas

Dear Stakeholder,


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Alejandro Mayorkas invites interested individuals to participate in a stakeholder engagement and meet and greet on Tuesday, January 15, at 1:00pm (Eastern). Please note that this engagement was previously scheduled for Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 1pm (Eastern). If you have already registered to participate, you do not need to respond separately to this message.


On January 7, 2013, USCIS published the first volume of a comprehensive new online Policy Manual. This first volume covers Citizenship and Naturalization. The transition to a centralized online policy resource is the result of an unprecedented agency-wide review of all adjudication and customer service policies.


During the engagement, Director Mayorkas will discuss the Policy Manual, highlight new citizenship and naturalization-related policies, and answer questions. In addition, Director Mayorkas will provide agency updates on such initiatives as the Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals process, the USCIS immigrant fee, and others.


Immediately following the engagement, Director Mayorkas welcomes stakeholders to remain for a meet and greet to welcome the New Year.
