USCIS to Host First in Series of Online Engagements

Release Date:

Want to have a conversation with USCIS?

USCIS is currently expanding outreach efforts by introducing a series of online engagements with you, our stakeholders. These sessions will be themed around immigration topics that are trending in the online community.

Our first discussion will touch upon how to avoid immigration scams and find authorized legal advice. This is also known as the unauthorized practice of immigration law (UPIL). Starting today, you can tweet your questions using the hashtag #UPIL.

You’re not on Twitter? No need to worry. You can also email your UPIL questions to us at

Our skilled subject matter experts will be on hand to answer your questions through a video feed that will be uploaded to all of our social media outlets, including our YouTube channel.

Be sure to mark your calendar, as we plan to broadcast the first engagement during the week of June 11th.
