U.S. planning to close two dozen immigration field offices

Immigrants are common in Miami and are involved in every aspect of the Florida economy. One in four children in the U.S. have parents who are immigrants. Those who are immigrants understand how difficult the immigration system can be. A recent announcement is worrying those in the immigration field about a plan to close immigration offices.

As our blog has mentioned, the backlog of immigration cases in the U.S. continues to grow. A recent plan announced by the federal government has immigration professionals worried that the immigration workload will get even worse. The federal government has plans to close nearly two dozen international field offices for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services department. USCIS says they are discussing whether to close these offices and move the workload to other offices in the U.S., saying that the move will save millions each year. This could be bad news for immigrants who have immigration tasks to complete. They understand that these issues are taking months and even years to process and include almost all aspects of immigration in the U.S., including visa requests, international adoptions and green card applications. Immigration experts are worried that the closing of these international USCIS offices will make the backlog even worse.

Immigrants in the U.S. understand the complications and time it takes to have their immigration applications processed. In the last few years, there has been an over 90 percent increase in the time it takes to process immigration applications, with the backlog doubling in the past year.

The backlog of immigration cases continues to rise in the U.S. If the USCIS closes international offices, the backlog is bound to grow even more. Immigrants should know that understanding immigration law may help with their immigration needs.
