Legal immigration becomes harder under Trump-era changes to visa rules
As the nation's attention has focused on ICE and its role in the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy, another immigration agency has quietly been making drastic changes to its mission and policies.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is a federal agency traditionally charged with managing benefits and services for immigrants to the U.S.
In February, USCIS published a new mission statement, considerably shifting the direction of their organization.
This month, we saw the impact of this new mission statement play out as the agency released two memos announcing new policies which could endanger almost any immigrant seeking to adjust their benefits.
