On February 9, 2022, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – a government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States – announced the agency’s new mission statement: “USCIS upholds America’s promise as a nation of welcome and possibility with fairness, integrity, and respect for all we serve.”

In 2021, USCIS leadership empowered employees to submit words that they felt best illustrated the agency’s work. The new mission statement is a reflection of this feedback from the workforce, the priorities of President Joe Biden’s Administration, and USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou’s vision for an inclusive and accessible agency.

“At its core, USCIS is about delivering decisions to families, businesses, workers, and those seeking refuge in our country on their applications, petitions, requests, and appeals. This new mission statement reflects the inclusive character of both our country and this agency,” USCIS Director Jaddou stated in the announcement.

“The United States is and will remain a welcoming nation that embraces people from across the world who seek family reunification, employment or professional opportunities, and humanitarian protection,” USCIS Director Jaddou added. To learn more about the USCIS, visit www.uscis.gov.
