USCIS Office of Public Engagement: USCIS Update on Syrian TPS and Invitation to Stakeholder Engagement on Administrative Errors
From the Office of Public Engagement:
On March 23, 2012, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced her intent to designate the Syrian Arab Republic for TPS for eighteen months. On Thursday, March 29th, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that eligible Syrian nationals (and persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Syria) in the United States may begin the application process for TPS. Please see the attached USCIS Update for more information.
In addition, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) would like to invite you to join a stakeholder engagement on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 2:00 pm (Eastern) to discuss an expedited process for reviewing and correcting certain decisions resulting from specific administrative errors made by the agency. Subject matter experts will discuss the new process, including how to request expedited case review, and answer questions. Please see attached invitation for details on how to join the call.
USCIS has also released a Memorandum on the Extension of Validity of Medical Certifications on Form I-693.
