USCIS Issues Guidance on Anti-Discrimination Policy

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has introduced comprehensive anti-discrimination guidance across the agency, focusing on interactions with the public and reaffirming our commitment to public service principles. 

The updated Policy Manual underscores USCIS's stance against any form of discriminatory treatment towards individuals. Aligned with the USCIS mission statement and core values, the agency firmly opposes unlawful discrimination, defined as mistreatment based on classes or categories to which individuals belong or are perceived to belong. The clarification emphasizes USCIS's commitment to treating the public without bias, irrespective of whether they fall within protected classes or groups outlined in federal anti-discrimination laws or other legal frameworks. 

All USCIS employees have access to agency-wide anti-discrimination training to enhance awareness and comprehension of the policy and its implications.
