Comments to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
On May 30, 2017, CLASP submitted comments to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security on proposed changes to Form I-485, the Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. CLASP raised concerns that the proposed Form I-485 and its accompanying instructions raised are likely to increase confusion and fear among immigrant families and consequently deter them from applying for critical benefits for which they or their children may be eligible.
