Statement from USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas on the realignment of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services organizational structure

“We at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have realigned our organizational structure to
achieve greater efficiency and to more ably accomplish our mission.  The realignment reflects the prioritization of certain critical Agency responsibilities. The three most significant changes are:

  • The creation of a Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate.  This change reflects our prioritization of our anti-fraud and national security responsibilities and will bring greater focus to them.
  • The creation of a new Customer Service Directorate.  This change reflects our prioritization of customer service and recognizes the significant efforts that will be needed to ensure that we are at the cutting edge of service modeling.
  • The division of the existing Domestic Operations Directorate into two separate directorates, Service Center Operations and Field Operations.  This change will foster greater innovation and achieve greater efficiency in our delivery of immigration services.

  “We at USCIS look forward to working collaboratively with you, the public whom we serve, to deliver better service and to more ably accomplish our mission, which is defining of our nation.”
