USCIS to Host First in Series of Online Engagements

Want to have a conversation with USCIS?

USCIS is currently expanding outreach efforts by introducing a series of online engagements with you, our stakeholders. These sessions will be themed around immigration topics that are trending in the online community.

Our first discussion will touch upon how to avoid immigration scams and find authorized legal advice. This is also known as the unauthorized practice of immigration law (UPIL). Starting today, you can tweet your questions using the hashtag #UPIL.

You’re not on Twitter? No need to worry. You can also email your UPIL questions to us at

Our skilled subject matter experts will be on hand to answer your questions through a video feed that will be uploaded to all of our social media outlets, including our YouTube channel.

Be sure to mark your calendar, as we plan to broadcast the first engagement during the week of June 11th.

For more information on our upcoming series of online engagements, please visit or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

We look forward to engaging with you!

The "Online Engagment" from USCIS is fine, as far as privacy of individual is protected.

Thank You

This is a good initiative to capture the issues at the receiver level and remove the blockholes at the root.

I welcome this very much. At the same time I would request for sessions on issues like RFE's / 221(g) etc where very less information is available.

I applaud you for this effort where the public can obtain current information. Unfortunately, some immigration officers are not current on changes in the laws, regulations and policies. I went to the field office in Queens with my niece, and the officers there were not aware of 2009 amendments to law that allows an application to continue when the principal beneficiary dies after the application is approved, and visa number is issued when available at the Embassy. I'm seeking humanitarian consideration for his daughter who's visiting in the US. Dilemma is, principal beneficiary wife died suddenly 7 months prior to his death. Everyone I spoke with on the phone and in person is not aware of the new changes effective 2009 where the application doesn't suddenly die too after it has been approved. I had to tell all the officers that this information is from website!

Thanks for such a great initiative, I prefer to put some light on asylum division, headquarter time process and working procedure for quality review as less information available.
