U.S. Steps Up Combat vs. Immigration Scams


On June 9, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (the “USCIS”) announced a national initiative to root out immigration services scams that victimize innocent people who are seeking assistance in obtaining immigration counseling, visas or citizenship.
