Mission Statement from USCIS Director, Ur Jaddou:

“USCIS upholds America’s promise as a nation of welcome and
possibility with fairness, integrity, and respect for all we serve.”

WASHINGTON— Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director
Ur M. Jaddou announced the agency’s new mission statement. Last year,
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 the
Biden Administration, and Director Jaddou’s vision for an inclusive
and accessible agency.

The new mission statement can be found here: “USCIS upholds America’s
promise as a nation of welcome and possibility with fairness,
integrity, and respect for all we serve.”

Director Jaddou released the following statement on today’s announcement:

“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. 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.

“The work of USCIS makes the possibility of America a reality for
immigrants, the communities and economies they join, and the nation as
a whole. At USCIS, we know that every time we grant an immigration or
naturalization benefit, we are fostering the opportunity to help us
build a stronger America. And when we offer refuge to those in need of
protection we are living up to our nation’s highest ideals.

“USCIS is committed to ensuring that the immigration system we
administer is accessible and humane. As we look towards the future, my
commitment will remain the same – USCIS will continue to serve the
public with respect and fairness, and lead with integrity to reflect
America’s promise as a nation of welcome and possibility today and for
generations to come.”
