Draft Memorandum for Comment
USCIS seeks your input on the draft policy memoranda listed below.
Currently, there are no draft policy memoranda for comment.
Comment Process: Please email all comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following to make your comments clear:
You must submit your comments before the closing date noted in the red box at the top of each policy memorandum. USCIS may distribute any comments received (including any personal information and contact information) on its public website or to those who request copies. By providing comments, you consent to their use and consideration by USCIS, and you acknowledge that your comments may become public. USCIS cannot guarantee that it will acknowledge or respond to any comments submitted.
See the Feedback Updates (also linked to the left) for the status of all policy memos and links to published memos.
Background and Additional Legal Information: Field guidance documents are available for public review on USCIS's website (www.uscis.gov) as part of the Adjudicator's Field Manual (AFM). In a continued effort to promote transparency and consistency in our operations, USCIS will periodically post policy memos for public comment to assist USCIS in improving immigration services. USCIS will not post memos containing information that is law enforcement sensitive, confidential or otherwise protected from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. USCIS is not required to solicit public comment on the draft policy memos under the Administrative Procedure Act. This informal comment process does not replace any statutory or other legal requirement for public comment on agency action.
