The USCIS has issued a response to the leaked internal memo regarding “Alternatives to CIR”. The USCIS said, “Internal draft memos do not and should not be equated with official action or policy of the Department. We continue to maintain that comprehensive bipartisan legislation, coupled with smart, effective enforcement, is the only solution to our nation’s immigration challenges.Internal memoranda help us do the thinking that leads to important changes; some of them are adopted and others are rejected.”
