Office of Immigration will be in town to answer questions

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The US Office of Immigration (USCIS) Denver Field Office announced it will be here in Jackson to provide services this week to people who live in and around Teton County.

USCIS will be set up in the Ordway Auditorium at the Teton County Library, located at 125 Virginian Lane in Jackson. Information services will be available on a walk-in basis from 3-5pm on Wednesday, June 13, and 2:30-4:00pm on Thursday, June 14. This is when individual questions can be asked about anyone’s present or future immigration case.

According to Amber Vasek, the community relations officer of the paperwork division of USCIS, no ID’s will be checked and it does not matter what your status is—legal or otherwise. These are two days for anyone to obtain valuable answers direct from the source.

The Immigration Office will also hold an additional meeting on Wednesday, June 13, at 6:30pm at the First Baptist Church of Jackson Hole, 90 W Kelly Ave, Jackson. This meeting is for employers, employees, individuals, families, interested community members or anyone with a question about the immigration process, or the steps you or someone you care about need to take.

Participants will receive printed immigration information at the group session.

Do you ever wonder where to go to research answers to your immigration questions?  Spend an evening with a USCIS benefits officer who will answer all your general questions. USCIS representatives can’t give legal advice, but they can give specific information about an immigration case.

Again, Vasek notes there will be no IDs or status checked. This evening is all about answering questions and providing information.

USCIS is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. USCIS naturalized more than 716,000 people in fiscal year 2017.
