USCIS using internal survey to help rewrite the immigration agency's mission statement

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services leadership is asking employees to describe the immigration agency's mission in three words to help them rewrite its mission statement, according to an internal email obtained by Axios sent Wednesday afternoon.

Why it matters: In 2018, the Trump administration rewrote the statement, controversially removing the words "nation of immigrants." The recent email is another sign of the Biden administration trying to change the tone on immigration post-Trump. USCIS also urged officials to use "more inclusive" terms to describe immigrants.

  • USCIS will ask employees for three words that "best describe how we aspire to accomplish our mission" through Survey Monkey. The survey will be sent out on Monday and employees will have until April 16 to respond, according to the email.
  • "I feel it is essential that we leverage your ideas and input as we craft a new mission statement and set our vision for the agency," USCIS Acting Director Tracy Renaud wrote in the email.

Between the lines: While other immigration agencies under the Department of Homeland Security deal with border enforcement, detention and deportation, USCIS manages much of the legal immigration system — including issuing of certain visas, work permits and some kinds of asylum.

  • The current mission statement established by the Trump administration describes USCIS as administering "the nation’s lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values."
  • Before the Trump-era change, the mission statement included describing the agency as securing "America's promise as a nation of immigrants."

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
