08/31/2016 - USCIS Ombudsman Telephone Conference



USCIS Ombudsman Telephone Conference

The Ombudsman Office was created independent of USCIS and its role has been to work with USCIS stakeholders in resolving processing problems.  

On 8/31/2016, Vince joined Steve Springer of the National Association of Foreign Student Advisers (NAFSA) and the Ombudsman Office in providing stakeholders an update and the impact of long delays in USCIS' processing of employment authorization document applications (Form I-765), H-1B extensions, and change of status applications (I-539).  The telephone conference was to bring to USCIS' attention to the negative impact and frustrations international student advisers and private practitioners face.

The telephone conference also allowed for a Question & Answer period at the end.  There were over 1000 parties who called into the telephone conference.
