U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the first stop for people applying for a green card, citizenship or refugee status.

New study shows deportations don’t reduce crime
In 2008, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) introduced “Secure Communities,” which for the first time allowed DHS to check the fingerprints of any individual arrested by a local jurisdiction. Secure Communities piggybacked on prior DHS initiatives to use local police as “force multipliers” including the Criminal Alien Program, which establishes voluntary screening partnerships with local jails, which deputizes local law enforcement as immigration enforcement agents. In all, DHS’ underly....

Mexican president calls for immigration reform
Mexico's president spoke of the need for U.S. immigration reform on a two-day visit to immigrant-friendly California, saying those who reject diversity and inclusion will ultimately be proven wrong.

"This, at the end, is about and only about a matter of justice for those who contribute so much to the development of the American society." Pena Ni....

Obama considering changes in Green Cards
President Barack Obama is considering key changes in the nation's immigration system requested by tech, industry and powerful interest groups, in a move that could blunt Republicans' election-year criticism of the president's go-it-alone approach to immigration. Administration officials and advocates said the steps would go beyond the expected relief from deportations for some immigrants in the U.S. illegally that Obama signaled he'd adopt after immigration efforts in Congress collapsed. F....

Two years after being DACAmented
Before congressional Republicans left for recess last week, they set their sights on eliminating President Barack Obama's policy to protect undocumented young people from deportation. The bill that passed the House would have stripped protections from half a million young undocumented immigrants, often called Dreamers. But according to a report published as many as 980,000 Dreamers are still living without that relief entirely, suggesting work needs to be done to both protect the Deferred Acti....

Obama warns: I’m acting alone on immigration
House Republican leadership abruptly postponed and then ultimately pulled a vote on its plan to deal with the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday, after a conservative revolt left leadership short of the votes needed to pass the bill.
