- State the title of the relevant memo in the subject line of your message;
- Refer to a specific portion of the memo;
- Explain the reason for any recommended change; and
- Include data, information, or authority that supports the recommendation.
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. While USCIS will consider comments that are submitted, it will generally not provide responses to such comments.
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 periodically posts policy memos for public comment to assist USCIS in improving immigration services. Some memoranda will not be posted, e.g., those 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 policy memos under the Administrative Procedure Act.
