Measures to Prevent Lost Green Cards

On May 2, 2011, USCIS announced that it will be implementing a new procedure called the Secure Mail Initiative (SMI). Made possible with a partnership with the US Post Office, the SMI will supposedly allow USCIS to confirm delivery of important documents such as green cards through use of Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and other tracking protocols.

This sounds like a great and long overdue measure by USCIS to ensure that important immigration documents are delivered and received. There are too many people out there who, through no fault of their own, fail to receive their green cards, work permits, advance parole documents and the like. In some instances, such as green cards, people have been forced to file I-90s and pay filing fees of $450 for something which they should have rightfully received in the first place. Others, such as those waiting for lost work permits, risk lost job opportunities because they are not able to furnish proof of employment authorization to their employers. This new initiative seems like a positive step forward in reducing some of these incidents and improving the efficiency of USCIS. Hopefully the government will roll out more of these initiatives and security measures in the coming year.
