WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is honoring its dedicated workforce during Public Service Recognition Week, May 1-7. Celebrated during the first full week in May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week is a time set aside to honor those who serve our nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees.
“USCIS employees are doing important work to uphold America’s promise as a nation of welcome and possibility,” said USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou. “Today and every day, we recognize our dedicated workforce for their commitment and resiliency during challenging times and we thank them for their steadfast service to the nation. I’m proud of the tireless work the thousands of USCIS employees are doing to respond to humanitarian crises, break down barriers in the immigration system, increase access to eligible immigration benefits, promote efficiency and reduce our processing times, and welcome new citizens.”
