Contact USCIS

The functions of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) were formerly handled by the Department of Labor. In 1940, these functions were transferred to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) within the Department of Justice. In 2003, the INS's functions were transferred to the newly-created DHS. USCIS handles naturalization and enforces immigration laws.
