U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is committed to improving its services and efficiency, shortening processing wait times, and reducing backlogs and redundant paperwork. As part of their commitment to modernization and efficiency, USCIS has recently begun to text customers with important information. USCIS sends text messages to people who have opted in to receive them. You can also receive text messages from USCIS if you have signed up for public alerts about DACA, TPS or other immigration programs.
