USCIS TAKES A FIRST STEP TO HELP SOLDIERS

Rate this Entry

USCIS announced today that they are establishing a help line (1-877-CIS-4MIL) to assist soldiers with immigration problems as well as a web page devoted to military issues.



Those of you who follow this blog and my writing over the years know about how poorly soldiers have been treated by USCIS whether it has been in respect to their own status of members of their immediate family. So if this announcement signals a change in attitude, that is welcome news. The help line will assist soldiers with the following:



o Tracking their application for naturalization (Form N-400);
o Notifying USCIS of a new mailing address or duty station;
o Checking the status of an application or petition;
o Bringing a spouse, fiancé(e) or adopted child to the United States;
o Obtaining posthumous citizenship for a deceased member of the Armed Services; and
o Submitting an application for expedited processing.

    I personally know how it affects ones performance at work while dealing with immigration. Hope this new process for soldiers makes things better for these men and women serving the country. I think deadlines for applications and RFEs should be flexible for these men and women too. Personally I think a soldier should not be worried about meeting a deadline for RFE or about other immigration matter while he or she is in combat duty or on his way to frontlines.
