"Enlaces" Public Engagement in Spanish: How Things are Going

On Jan. 29, the Washington District Office hosted the third in a series of quarterly national public engagements in Spanish. These public engagements, called “Enlaces,” are part of an ongoing effort to reach out to the diverse communities we serve. Each session includes agency updates and focuses on a specific immigration topic and includes an open discussion facilitated by USCIS officials.

This "Enlace" was different from the first engagements because community members were able to attend in person or by telephone and reached a much wider audience. It was also the first time that USCIS has hosted a national engagement on a Saturday. Holding the event on a weekend was part of USCIS’s efforts to reach those community members whose access to us is limited, whether it is because of work schedules, transportation or other life factors.  There were over 40 in-person participants, 165 via telephone and over 150 participants registered to participate via WebEx.

“Public service is a core mission of our agency,” said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas. “These Spanish-language sessions expand our ongoing efforts to communicate with the many communities we serve.”

“Enlaces” will help customers understand how best to navigate through the immigration experience and highlight resources available on the agency’s Spanish-language website (www.uscis.gov/espanol).

Esta es una gran noticia, algunos fuimos mal tratados injustamente y tenemos el derecho de querer vivir en su país. Una alegría enorme.
Saludos
