US Citizenship and Immigration - E-Newsletter January 28, 2010


US Citizenship and Immigration Services

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) was created by the Homeland Security Act of 2002. As of March 1, 2003, USCIS replaced Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) and became an office within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The DHS was created in response to the terrorist acts of 2001 against the United States. The mission of the DHS is to coordinate efforts among several federal government agencies to protect and strengthen US borders, security systems, information sharing and preparedness for future disasters and attacks.
