Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Lamar Smith gave the following statement on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) updated mission statement. Last year the House Judiciary Committee approved a similar revised mission statement as part of legislation to reauthorize USCIS.

Rep. Smith: “The updated USCIS mission statement demonstrates the agency’s commitment to protect American workers and taxpayers first.  By safeguarding the integrity of the immigration process and preventing fraud, USCIS executes it duties as required by law.  USCIS leadership should be thanked for carrying out this important mission on behalf of the American people.”

USCIS Mission Statement:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the nation's lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values.
