"Enlaces" Public Engagement in Spanish: How Things are Going
This "Enlace" was different from the first engagements because community members were able to attend in person or by telephone and reached a much wider audience. It was also the first time that USCIS has hosted a national engagement on a Saturday. Holding the event on a weekend was part of USCIS’s efforts to reach those community members whose access to us is limited, whether it is because of work schedules, transportation or other life factors. There were over 40 in-person participants, 165 via telephone and over 150 participants registered to participate via WebEx.
“Public service is a core mission of our agency,” said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas. “These Spanish-language sessions expand our ongoing efforts to communicate with the many communities we serve.”
“Enlaces” will help customers understand how best to navigate through the immigration experience and highlight resources available on the agency’s Spanish-language website (www.uscis.gov/espanol).
