FOIA Response Deferred Action Policy at USCIS
  • Shoba S Wadhia

I filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request with USCIS seeking internal documents and guidance pertaining to deferred action since June 17, 2011. In July 2013, USCIS responded with 34 identifiable pages that were responsive to my request. Of note, the response includes: • A few pages about DA screening for VAWA self-petitioners • Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for Handling Deferred Action Requests At USCIS Field Offices (p. 14-20) • Templates for a DA Approval and DA Denial • Blank Form G-312 Deferred Action Summary
