DHS Seeks Public Input to Identity Barriers for Immigration Services or Benefits

No two immigration journeys are the same. Some are longer, more difficult processes than others. However, the fact remains across the board that there are certain universal barriers that individuals face when trying to access immigration services.

Hopefully, that will change in the near future. Last month, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that the agency would be accepting public comments and other inputs on how the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can reduce administrative and other legal barriers that prevent foreign citizens from easily obtaining such immigration-related assistance.

How You Can Submit Comments or Input

The DHS published an official Request for Public Input in the Federal Registrar, with comment submissions being due on May 19, 2021. The agency is requesting information on types of barriers to USCIS benefits and services that include, but are not limited to:

  • Adjustment of status
  • Naturalization
  • H-1B nonimmigrant status
  • Refugee status
  • Asylum
  • Parole

The overall goal of the Request for Public Input is to promote equality by “reducing administrative burdens, undue complexity, unnecessary confusion, and processing and waiting times.”

If you would like to submit comments for input, you can do so through the Federal eRulemaking Portal. You can follow the instructions in order to ensure your comment submission is successful.
