Resources for Congress

The Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA) supports the USCIS mission by maintaining effective relationships with Congress. OLA promptly responds to concerns from congressional and intergovernmental stakeholders and shares updates on USCIS policy changes with those stakeholders.

OLA has created a dedicated site for congressional stakeholders, This site provides resources to assist congressional stakeholders with immigration casework and policy matters. The information we provide on this site is intended to support congressional and intergovernmental stakeholders in their search for information on our programs and to assist them in their casework.
