As we recently noted, the Washington Post reported that USCIS was creating an employee oversight division to monitor staff who might be perceived as too lenient in their adjudications of requested immigration benefits. USCIS has now specifically denied that claim: “Contrary to recent news reporting, USCIS is not creating an oversight division to monitor employees perceived as too lenient with adjudicating immigration benefit requests. These reports are absolutely false . . .”
We will continue to monitor any developments as to the creation of such an agency.
