Recap of USCIS Twitter Office Hours, March 10
On March 10, we held the seventh USCIS Twitter Office Hours to answer your questions about immigration benefits and other services that our agency provides.
During this event we were able to answer many common questions that we know many of our stakeholders have. Of course, we received more questions than we had time to address in an hour.
Below you can find all of the questions and answers that we tweeted.
