The U.S. Senate voted 47-34 on Friday to confirm Ur Mendoza Jaddou to lead U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Ur Mendoza Jaddou will be the first congressionally approved director since 2019 and its first-ever female leader.
Ur Mendoza Jaddou has stated that among her initial goals is to reduce USCIS delays in visa processing, which have reached extraordinary lengths in the last 24 months due to double-impact of domestic US immigration policy and the COVID19 pandemic.
