ILRC-DHS Watch Letter - USCIS Appropriations

Policy Advocacy
Publication Date

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency funded by the fees of US citizens, employers, and immigrants, is asking Congress for $1.2 billion in appropriated money to cover up years of deliberate fiscal and policy mismanagement by the Trump administration. The ILRC and DHS Watch drafted a letter signed by over 100 groups asking that Congress condition any appropriated funds to USCIS's reversal of policies and actions that produced the current deficit and subverted the agency’s core services mission.
